So I bought a new front bumper

I found this nice looking bumber on E-Bay the other day. For the money it was a killer deal. I paid $179 plus shipping for it. Looks alot like Smitybult XRC.
My buddy also bought one.


What do you think?

I personally prefer one piece straight bumpers. Tube ones look good too. But hey, you are the only one who should like it.

I owned an XRC and mine didn't have the 2 virtical bars going from the bumper to the grill guard. Weird.

EDIT: After reading your initial post for the 3rd time I noticed it's a replica. OK. Looks pretty cool.

That bumper looks awfully familiar...prolly cuz its the same one i got for 179 as well lol. Just stuck a 12k milemarker and some lights i had laying around off another project on it. Jeep is still very much a work in progress.

Yeah shipping was very fast, and the bumper is rather stout. I was impressed to say the least by the cost to what you get. D-rings and 6 bolts included and it lined right up..no tweaking needed. Pulled a full size chevy with the 12k off his frame today...bumper didnt budge. Also cool it includes a winch plate...and light tabs...so dont have to buy extra stuffs. Textured powdercoat is nice as well.

on floor ready to go back on

All I need to do is wire the lights.
Does anyone know how that winch cover goes on?

What do you think?
So i've been looking at buying this bumper. After having it a few weeks, what do u think? Is it possible to mount a warn or mile marker winch on it? And does the welds seem good? The price just seems to good to be true.

I mounted mine. Looks great. But the fairlead mound bolts are spaced too far apart. About a quarter of an inch......
