Bumper question

Any one using one of these? I don't do a lot of serious rock crawling but need something better than what I have to hold the winch down.

I have owned e-autogrilles bumpers before, not that particular one but they are exactly the same as any other bumper out there. I have even heard they are made in the same Chinese factory as smittybuilt bumpers. Don't know that for a fact but the ones I had were very nice.

Thanks for the response, Like I've said I'm not a hard core crawler... but for the price and free delivery. I cant seem to pass it up.

Here is a thread about eautogrills KO offroad and some other ebay bumpers.

Thanks, Just read it. Sounds to me like.... unless you're you are very "picky" the bumper is all and all a decent one. Mine should be in this week.

I had front and rear SRC style for the JK and a XRC for my 91 YJ.... They are the same plant the smittybuilt ones come out of. Same weight, same thickness, IMO you cant beat them, steel is steel. I was pulled out of the mud several times and had a winch on the front. Winched a 5000 lbs. Safe to the end of a box truck on my JK and never had a problem. I hit brush and rocks in Uwharrie and didn't damage it. It did have a small scratch on the front when it came in shipping but alittle bed liner and you couldn't see it. I will buy them again for my 95 YJ in a few months. I will say the prices on E-autogrilles are going up which tells me more and more people are buying them and returning. He has great reviews and sometimes if you buy direct from his website instead of through ebay you can get a better deal. Go for it you wont be disappointed.

I'm happy with mine, although it needed a little trimming to get it mounted.

Make sure look at the KO Offroad ones as well. A lot of people like them also.
If you look at the barricade bumper thread here you will see a lot of the eautogrills bumpers. Barricade is the Extreme Terrain brand.

Well here you go, this is my opinion on the E-AutoGrille front bumper. I purchased the bumper on my first post, it was delivered to my door for $238.00. All in all it went well. The mounting bracket on the drivers side was off about 1/2". There was enough material on the bracket to elongate the holes. My total removal and assembly time was only 2 hours. This included elongating the bolt holes on the drivers side. there wasn't enough room to reinstall the original top bumper bolts (not enough for the socket, ratchet and the bolt) so I installed some standard short bolts. I must say that I am pleased with the over all quality and price of this bumper. I'll post some pics later.

I'm not a fan of those bumpers , look to modern on the classic lines of the YJ

I guess my next purchase will be a rear bumper with the tire carrier.

If you go to e autogrilles store on eBay and then search for rear corner guards they will pop up. I don't have a link cause I use the eBay app to stalk all his products hahaha
