Warn Bumpers

I've never heard anything but good about warn products so I've been looking at getting Warn front and rear bumpers. Before I do I want to make one last check, and here from people who have Warn bumpers.

Here is the front bumper I'm looking at

Jeep Wrangler TJ YJ Rock Crawler Front Guard Bumper 87 06 Rock New | eBay

This is the rear bumper:

Warn Industries Rock Crawler Rear Bumper for Wrangler TJ | eBay


Anyone run either of these bumpers. Any complaints about them? Love it, hate it? Let's hear it fellas!

Had them in the past. No complaints here.

As for the rear bumper...Google "CROWN REAR TJ TIRE CARRIER".

Same bumper for half the price. Minus the "W" cut outs

The first link is not a warn bumper, its Chinese Knockoffs. I have the warn rock crawler front bumper and I like it. Its taken a beating and held up great.

I think you are confusing Crown with smitybuilt or similar stuff. Crown has been making jeep parts and replacement parts for close to 50yrs. They started out in a Boston store front.

In installing several of both on jeeps and owning both...I can tell you they are the same design material and welding. Only difference between the two is the "W" cut out.

Agreed. Look like you were replying at first. The front bumper linked/eautogrill whatever it is,is a knockoff of the smittybult bumper that is a knockoff of the bestop bumper.

Thanks for all the quick replies. I'll look through the links you guys posted tomorrow. My internet is giving me fits right now and had to resort to my phone.

As for the first link I typed in "warn front bumper TJ" on ebay and that came up. Should have realized it never says Warn in the listing. My fault.

I have both front and rear. not sure if you want the tire carrier or not but i have that also. the bumpers are strong, rigid, and great quality. the front was a dream to install i mean like 15 minutes, including moving the fog lights over. the back on the other hand though... still easy once i got it all figured out but i had to drop the gas tank about halfway down (left all lines and hoses other than filler neck attached) that was the only propblem with the bumper.

i did get a defective carrier the first time but WARN customer service was amazing and i had a new one very promptly... speaking of i still owe my UPS man a ride haha, he has delivered many jeep things and he loves the jeep.

Good Luck and keep on jeepin

I have a Warn front bumper and winch plate.

The bolt holes on the bumper lined up with the frame. But the bolt holes on the winch plate did not. I had to drill them out a bit.
