mix n match bumpers

looking for opinions.

how does everyone feel about mixing and matching front and rear bumpers?
like one brand with another?

I agree with Blegan. I think if they match each other, it should be fine. I wouldn't do a double tube front with a big OrFab job with a tire carrier on the back.

My front and rear bumpers are completely different and don't match, and I don't care. My front bumper is an aluminum bumper from Savvy, and my rear is a heavy-duty steel bumper from a local manufacturer (Dirt Works) that is more suitable for towing my pop-up tent trailer.

I could care less if they match, function outweighs form in my book.

I have the XRC winch bumper in front and Rokmen in the rear. I think it looks fine...they both work and they are both black. My Jeep probably has at least 8 different after market manufacturers represented. Even my suspension is mixed. Pro Comp springs, Rubicon Express shocks, Daystar spacer, JKS, discos...Like my pres, I believe in spreading the wealth.
