Benjy I like my xhd, had a very minor quality issue with the bumper hoop though. Welding on the bracket wasn't cleaned up and prevented one bolt from fitting. I drilled it out, painted it and sat out to dry. Ran to a scout meeting and left the bolts on the bumper. Called RR this morning, told then the story and they happily offered to send new bolts.

bamurphy3 Any more last second advice?

bamurphy3 Wow, just saw the Rampage Recovery for the first time and I like it quite a bit too, like the XHD but a little more aggressive looking. I would do it without the winch plate or winch. Anyone have a good comparison or opinion on thse two? Need to make a decision in the next couple days

Benjy Ordered mine Saturday, arrived from PA this afternoon. Looks awesome. Shouldn't have ordered the d-ring isolators, they're too small.

bamurphy3 Think I've decided on the rugged ridge xhd with black d rings, full end caps and black hoop. No lights or winch. Unless someone wants to show me a pic of the rock hard 4x4 with factory fogs on a mostly stock jeep...

Benjy I'm pulling my stocker off this week for a XHD, Big Q says it'll arrive tomorrow. Will post pics, search for "ridge' and you get quite a few XHD bumper topics to review.

snax Rockhard is a good looking bumper.
05-16-2011 08:34 PM
bamajeeper I vote for the Rockhard . Goodlooking , solid bumper

Grog I like the Poison Spyder bumpers myself. Some of the other ones are too fancy for my tastes; which is all it is

snax I think the XHD without the winch looks good if you mount some lights on it, like in the Quadratec catalog picture.

bamurphy3 Thought about getting someone's take-off but I would definitely be replacing the factory bumper eventually, so I figure why not now. Just wondering what some of ya'll like that isn't too crazy and looks good without a winch

Grog OEM bumper take offs should be easy to find. I know in my club we have 30 or 40 guys with bumpers sitting in their garages. Might check Craiglist or a 4wd store - they would be real cheap.

Don't rush into a decision

rics1997 I think it comes down to personal tastes on bumpers. One thing I do like about the XHD though is if later you want to change the look, it is a simple remove an end cap, add an end cap, tube ends, or add an end cap with storage; add a light bar or not, go more aggressive with a pre-runner or stinger. There is so many ways to change the look of that bumper with an add-on. That is what I looked at when I got mine anyways

Emergency bumper advice

Was probably going to look at a replacement bumper anyway, but my search is expedited now after a slight bump with a telephone pole this weekend, rendering my stock bumper in need of repair. Figure il go ahead and replace it instead. I was looking at the rugged ridge xhd and rock hard 4x4 with oem fog openings. I don't need a winch and like a simple look with the bull bar in front. I have an 11 sahara in silver with silver top. Any suggestions would be appreciated and I need to order it by Friday. Thanks!
