So my Jeep's with Accessory Outfitters!! Trying to decide on a front bumper and leaning towards a Front Stinger that will eventually carry a winch for me.....

1) Hanson Offroad
2) Poison Spyder
3) OR Fab

Any recommendations?!?!

Lift, wheels and tires are nearly done! Pics soon!!

Any advice on a front bumper setup? Think I'm leaning away from a stinger now but want a really aggressive look...any ideas for something 1 Piece? Modular makes me nervous....

I love my smittybilt XRC but you can't go wrong with Poison spyder products!

I am thinking about taking a stop at the shop today to take a peek at your rig :-)

I love my Rough country hybrid stubby bumper. Simple, lighter than most, and not over priced.

I like both, completely different looks!!

I'm wanting something with a really aggressive look but not too wide...I was looking at Stingers but my wife hates them so I'm trying to find something similar but less pronounced....

I hated stingers too until I started seeing photo's and vidoe's of people not rolling completely over because of them. Now I think they are sexy! LOL

Doesn't people build there own stuff any more. My bumpers don't look fancy like the store bought ones but I take pride in what I built. Twice as string for a small fraction of the cost.

Buddy if I had the time, know-how and tools I'd love to build my own!

Fortunately for great folks like Accessory Outfitters I have none of the 3!!

Glad to hear you enjoy the way you pursue your builds!!

i would build my own but i don't have the skill or tools to do it, but i am enlisting the fabrication skills of a jeeper to build my rear tire swing and rock sliders

Only way to learn is to get the tools and try it out. Both bumpers where done with just a drill, grinder and a flux core welder. With the exception of a few Ive wheeled with dont know anything about there jeep. They just drop there jeep off at a shop and fork over a wad of cash and say build it. And when something goes wrong on the trail they rely on others to fix it.

BTW a welder is the best investment you can do for your jeep.

My front bumper looks stock but it's custom built by my cousin who is a fabricator by trade.

Chris not everyone wants to do their own work, or in some cases like David, he can't physically do that any more. And really it makes no differences if they do it them selves or buy it. We have paid someone to put everything on our jeeps. Does that make Dave and I less people because we don't built it ourselves?
