You can definitely do it yourself, it just requires some specialized tools you might never use again and it is very tedious from what i understand, but definitely doable. I believe jeepherz and her husband regeared her jeep themselves, which i'm impressed by.

This guy that's going to do the install just happened to give me great labor rates and he's the best around, so i deferred to him.

Yup.

Touch screen, BT, back up camera capable, apps, DVD, streaming... and best of all - a detachable faceplate!!

And with your iPhone connected, I think it acts as a nav unit too with a certain app.

Hey dude, haven't seen you on in a while.

I'm currently slamming my head into the table repeatedly trying to figure out what bumpers to go with. I was gonna go with a used set of ARB full width front/rear, but the guy is over 7hrs away.

Right now I'm thinking Poison Spyder stubby...

right? stupid real life demanding my attention

7hrs is purdy far, are they cheap enough to make it feasible?

Those PS bumpers are swanky I particularly like those rear high clearance bumpers. No nonsense, sleek, functional, increases departure angle, you get to cut up your frame a bit, what's not to like?

I've looked at just about everyone...even considered custom builds. I haven't looked at Wild Boar.

After the cost and adding in all the driving expenses, not really.

I didn't know about the cutting the frame part. From what I've read, everything bolts right up.

All you guys buying bumpers, making me jealous and I'm just sitting here wondering if I've got enough spare metal to make my smittybilt classic front into something worthwhile.

all but one bolts right up, the BFH one requires you to cut off the excess fame horns in the rear and maybe even the aftmost crossmember. totally worth it. see below

I need to hurry up and learn how to weld. I want to ditch the rear bumper, trim down the horns, and weld up some plate steel over the left overs. The jk looks pretty good without a rear bumper IMO.

then again, day to day driving with stupid people on the roads might convince me to put something heftier back there.



PS BFH

I don't have the time, talent or equipment to make anything myself. We have a couple vendors that sponsor the club that make custom stuff but it's pretty basic.

I'm looking at the PS RockBrawler. The 2nd gen has it's own hitch opening but isn't recommended for towing...only recovery. Since I already have the factory hitch, that would be unneeded.

It is...

I've been waiting to swap bumpers since I got it over 2 years ago, but now that I'm able to do it, it's like I have an anxiety over which one to go with. I keep coming back to the Poison Spyder stubby. I manage to find one or two details I don't like about EVERY bumper...

What's up on your end?
