Need Your Opinions

Just looking for your opinions on a front and rear bumper; and side armor for my jeep. How well do they stand up, any problems with installation or out there, and if you think that all three look good together.

I am looking at:

Front

Rear

Side Armor

I have that front bumper.

My tire carrier bumper and sliders are RRC also.

Here are a couple pix:

I had that front bumper on my 97, it held up surprisingly well. A friend who borrowed my Jeep rear ended a Durango and after scraping the red paint off the bumper, you couldn't tell anything happened. The Durango, well that's another story... (the tailgate was 'friggen annihilated)

BTW, what gears are you running if not 4.56's Larry?

I used mine as a true slider this summer. Kinda turned a little late and used the bumper to keep the jeep off from a 3' pine tree up at Dusy.

Besides some pine tar, I just had that side pushed slightly closer to the body than the other. Pretty tough stuff. My rear has taken a LOT of abuse too! No problems.

I'll probably end up with the sliders and front, but a little iffy on the rear. Can't really decide if they go together with the rest. But it comes with everything I want in my rear. Already has a place to mount my HiLift horizontally, carries up to 35", and comes with D-Ring Mounts, plus its flat. There needs to be a website where you choose your jeep and color and you can check which parts you want and it will show you what your jeep will look like with them on.

The rear bumper was nice too, I almost forgot I had it as well

The powder coating holds up well it just fades over time.

Here are the bumpers on my last Jeep:






...Man I miss that Jeep
I would definitely consider buying that front bumper again
