Savvy front





And Currie rear. Not the cheapest but among the best. I came down hard on the left rear coming off of a rock ledge and lost a little powdercoat was all.

smittybilt SRC liked the look, really liked the price, and love that it bolted on with no problems (contrary to what people say) smittybilt has given me a lot of great products at a very good price. its sturdy and gives ample tire clearance while also having 4 brackets for lights or other accessories. I highly recommend it. I hit an owl with it doing 55, no damage to jeep or bumper, owl died though.

Chopped stock stubby up front, still trying to figure out what I want to do as far as the front goes.

Smittybilt SRC Classic with tire carrier and Warn grille guard. The rear was kind of a pain to mount (alignment of bolt holes, partially my fault), but I'm pleased with the outcome.

Sorry guys, been meaning to get these up sooner. These are photos of the Body Armor front bumper TJ-19531. The first pic shows the reinforced back. The others just show the before and after and with a winch. I am thoroughly happy with this bumper. Be advised that you will have to make a slight modification if you plan to run a Currie Anti-Rock Swaybar...no biggie though, just some grinding.



Here is the recovery point



Before:



After:



After Side:

I don't necessarily like the stock fog lights, but they were there and will work for now. There are two tabs located above the winch for light mounting as well.

The stock rear frame is gone. That's a frame using 2x3 3/16 wall rect. tubing coming straight back (hence the tub cutouts). I wanted a simple, lightweight bumper that gave me as much clearance as possible but still protected the leading edge of the tub.

So, I used one of these on the bottom of each frame rail as an "anchor" for the tube:


And cut some 2" x .25" wall DOM tube to the correct length and welded the three pieces together:


Then I burned it in hot to the bottom of the frame rails. Lightweight, high clearance and very strong. And it doubles as a crossmember.

The recovery points are these with some plate added to both sides to make them register perfectly with the frame rail ID:


They're welded all around and are rosette welded with the frame rails. Lastly, they're welded to the two bumper anchors.

Just found this bumper made by rough country and I havent found anything as far as reviews. Does anyone have this bumper? If so post reviews and pics. I like it mostly because its only $250 and it has a winch mount.

I was about to buy front and rear bumpers but decided on an AR-15 instead!
