dave@rokmen Looks like we'll be caught up and back orders will ship by the end of next week, and any new orders the following week.

RYNOMAGNUM I have the Warn. Good bumper....But for the price the ROKMEN looks tough to beat! I've had others with the built in winch plate and they are a nice feature to have ....saving$$$

What brand is that? Or was it fabricated?

G54 How's the availability looking after the new year Dave?

dave@rokmen I'd step it up a notch, and go with one of these - same price range too, better if you consider it has an integrated winch plate..

Rokmen - Mercenary Front Bumper, Wrangler TJ and LJ

Then again, I am biased....

rbloodhound I have the Warn bumper. It is a quality built piece.

Yes i realize that, im saying i would want the bar and the bumper itself. Which is more expensive than the fabtech bumper which already has a bar like that. Choosing these things gets confusing

I'll look into that thankyou.

rrich From what I've seen of Fabtech, suspensions, not their bumpers, it's obvious how they got their name.

You need to always have a FABrication TECHnician along to keep things working.

Both the design and workmanship just isn't there.

jeepjones The FabTech is more expensive but they build good stuff. Did you ever consider taking the pic to a local fabricator and seeing how much he could build one for you?

c.m.martin1009 Alright yeah im leaning towards the fabtech. The warn bumper is just wider. But i like the look of the fabtech and have only heard good things about it. Thanks for the advice!
11-24-2010 07:47 PM
Tarby As far as quality goes...I will tell you that fabtech makes good equipment. I have their heavy rocker guards on my wife's tj and they are BUILT. 3/8" thick steel. I will continue to buy their products in the future. (The rocker guards were heavier than the Warn units, and they came with countersunk stainless hardware, and cheaper than Warn)

Warn is always quality, but for the price, the fabtech looks good. Just my 2 cents...

Warn vs Fabtech (front bumper)

The warn bumper:
Grille Guard for Warn Rock Crawler Front Bumper by Warn and Other Jeep Parts and Jeep Accessories by 4 Wheel Drive Hardware-RH1

The fabtech bumper:
Fabtech FTT10029BK - Fabtech Front Prerunner Bumper in Black for 97-06 Jeep® Wrangler TJ & Unlimited - Quadratec

i was looking for a new front bumper and i was gonna ask if anyone owns either of these and which they think is better. The total price of the warn bumper with the front bar is more than the total of the fabtech bumper which already has a bar. Just wondering what yall think i should go with.
