Let's see your front bumpers!!

Looking to "upgrade" or replace my front bumper. Maybe adding a bull bar or something of the sorts. What has everyone else done? Let's check them out.. And please, no tube bumpers will find there way on my rigs.

If your Jeeps paint code is PGF, our Jeeps look almost identical on the outside (for the most part).

Dont know what the paint code is, but it's Emerald green pearlcoat. Sometimes it is dark green, sometimes it is almost blue.

Rugged Ridge Heavy Duty Bumper. Looks almost identical to the Warn Bumper, but cheaper, really happy with it, added some D-Rings and a winch. Came with drilled holes for the fog lights and I also bought the matching rear bumper!

That's not mine. You couldn't pay me enough to put anything smittybilt on my Jeep. He didn't hit real bard. But that I have seen 2 others do that same exact thing (except on the passenger side) and they didn't hit very hard at all. Its just a really bad design combined with cheap steel tube (probably welded by an 8 year old).

Mine is actually a 98 model with that color, but it is the best color I have found IMO.
