Looking at purchasing a Front Bumper

I have been looking at purchasing a front bumper for my 03 wrangler TJ. I really like the body armor 4x4 front formed winch bumper, but am sorta worried about the quality of it, because 1. Have never heard of Body armor brand, 2. Cant find any reviews or forums about others that have this product. So if anyone that has this bumper or knows something about it, any information would be helpful.

I would go with a Warn bumper not too expensive and really good build quality.

I have a metal cloak frame built on my jeep and a 10,000# winch. It looks badass. The aluminum base option keeps the over all weight down, and it is tough as hell. I've been yanked out of tight spots many of times by that bumper.

Body Armor bumpers are a good quality I run one of there bumpers that they don't make anymore at least for the TJ's. If I remember correctly they are made here in the states, but I'm not sure, while the other two bumpers that both 02tj and Wondertwin1 mentioned are both good brands and that they stand behind their products.

There other thing is that the option is yours, but what it comes down to is how much money are you willing to spend.

Yeah this is true, I like the body armor bumper look and functionality, it's just I'd hate to spend the money and then have it like buckle up while I was winching or something like that.

ek5soccer as long as you don't go over the recommended winch spec then you shouldn't have anything to worry about and I believe the max pull rated winch you can install is a 9,500lbs.

I have the JCR offroad stubby pre-runner winch bumper. It is really well made and fit perfectly. I had a local shop spray it with bedliner for $75 and it looks good and the finish is very tough. I added an Engo 10k winch and it fit perfectly.
