What kind of off-roading are you doing? I like my smittybilt stinger but I just trail ride and run some mud holes. No rock crawling or bashing into trees. Plus it was 250 shipped and his heavy and seems well built to me.

I have the JCR stubby pre runner bumper. I like the look and it was a well built product. Keep an eye out as they run specials for 10% off. They come in bare metal so you will have to paint it or beeline it. It has a built in winch mount so that saves some money later.
I just got the bull dog winch stubby front bumper, 189.00 plus shipping from 4x4 group buy, and i have to say im tickled with it, stout as can be, perfect fit, exactly what i wanted and simply could not beat the price.
I am having an extremely difficult time deciding between JCR's Dagger Stubby and Savvy's. I have seen Savvy's first hand and it is a darn good bumper. I personally just really like the clean lines/look of JCR's.
Best of Luck!

I have purchased two bumpers from Nates 4X4 and am very happy with them. With a winch mount, hoop, d-ring mounts and d-rings, light tabs, 2" receiver, and grade 8 hardware they run $350, and delivery is included. They do come bare steel, but I painted them with rock guard and black paint and they look great.
I have the JCR PreRunner with integrated winch plate. Very well made bumper. Solid with clean lines. It cost around $380. Lucky for me JCR is only 80mi away so I didn't have to pay for shipping. It's worth it either way though.

Couldn't check out the bulldog bumper and I couldn't find a bumper for TJ on Nates. I was on metalcloaks site but didnt see anything I really liked and I haven't thought about getting someone to make a bumper for me out of my stock. I really do like this http://www.jcroffroad.com/product/SW...-STUB-PRE.html but I'm still open to suggestions.
