Strongest Bumper Pair

Hello guys! I am getting ready for the snow I am about to get here in CT, I'll be out on the roads playing around and helping people out as I always do! My old account I can't seem to get into again.. so I had to make a new one..

Anyways, onto my question; I want to find a extremely strong bumper that can withstand bumps into other vehicles or into trees etc. at speeds around 15-20MPH. I slammed into something and my current bumper isn't going to do it for me anymore( I will find a link to it when I actually find it! haha) going about that same speed, 20mph. What are some good bumpers that will protect the whole front of the body and some underneath? I seem to find some good ones but they are all different style for the back and front.. I just want something rock solid with no light attachments or winch attachments (just more stuff to destroy )

So I am asking for an aftermarket bumper that can work with this..because I doubt this will provide any protection with the stock bumper.

This may or may not be the strongest, but its probably close to what you might be seeking:

ARB 3450070 - ARB Deluxe Winch Bull Bar Bumper in Black for 97-06 Jeep® Wrangler TJ & Unlimited - Quadratec

But for true ramming, ya probably need to have something custom built and then prepare the TJ for how heavy it will be.

A wrangler weighs 3,092-3,832 lbs and at 20 mph no bumper will prevent damage it may limit the damage but you will bend/dent the heck out of it. Don't do dumb stuff or be crazy near trees, signs, tele poles etc and you will prevent damage with out spending money on a bumper

and keep in mind, the more you strengthen something, the more weak points you will find somewhere else. My position has always been that I would rather bend the bumper than damage the frame.

Why would you want to run into things at 20mph? All the energy from the impact is going to be transferred to your tub, etc. instead of the bumper, if you put a huge, heavy duty bumper on the front.
When in doubt, power out!

I would think 20 mph and your airbag will go off and you will have damage to the front no matter what bumper you have on. Sounds like maybe you should just stay parked till the roads are cleared.

I know a lot of things, most of them are only correct in my own head...
Better to be judged by twelve then carried by six. I'm sure this is going to get me in trouble down the line
