upinar i run the smittybuilt tubular bumpers on my jeep and i do quiet a bit of offroading and i think there fine. theres some stuff you do have to worry about though, like hitting trees, brush, or anything in ur way down. they will stratch and ruin the finish on the bumper. So that eliminates the joy of ramming into shopping carts in the middle of Wal-marts parking lot! lol. these bumpers cant handle like the other bumpers like the warn. Even though i have that bumper, i can still easily access a snatch point on the front of my car that the bumper is not in the way. In my opinion, i think the tubular bumpers look better because the others look to plain(unless u have a winch). But thats just me. Its all up to u.

Scout Yeah I guess I need to go buy a welder! I'm just afraid I'd burn the house down. Uh wait, I KNOW I'd burn the house down.

Thanks for the help bigjeep!

bluvikng You are very welcome, the least I could do for you.
08-07-2006 03:06 PM
WranglerHawg Thanks blu, i hope everyone likes it, we made two other ones just like it, front and rear for my buddies jeep, its on 40s so we made the bumpers with 2x10 steel, and it looks great, very functional, and solid as a rock, i have pulled out full size trucks with 38s and bigger with that bumper, its great. Those backup lights may not look like much, but i had the KC backup lights on my old truck, and these ones are even brighter and they are some generic brand from Northern Tool, if anyone is interested, let me know...thanks again for posting the pic blu

bluvikng I took the liberty to post his rear bumper from his pictures. Hope it is ok with everyone.

Very nice, and functional bumper.

amerijeep Post a photo of it. If you don't know how to post it up, we can walk you through it or you can email it to someone. Someone on here will post it up for you.

WranglerHawg My friend and I built a rear bumper for my jeep, and we are about to start building the front one. Made it out of 2x6 Steel, and it looks awesome. We welded a reciever into it, and 2 back up lights. If you are interested, we could build you one for about 250 bucks, plus shipping. Some dumb ass on a 4 wheeler ran into me the other night, didn't even scratch my bumper and his bike got mangled. If you are interested, let me know, and i'll email you a photo of what it looks like.
07-25-2006 02:30 PM
SurfnSnow thanks. Ya I tried looking for the reciept and couldnlt find it but I know it was under $300 .
07-25-2006 12:52 PM
mrbigjeep looks sweet
07-25-2006 12:52 PM
mrbigjeep lol i was just about to ask how much it was and then u said you dont know $$$
07-24-2006 11:31 PM
SurfnSnow heya 1blkjp, I really like the fabtech bumper. The d-ring mounts are extremely solid and there is room for a winch. the bumper also comes with a steering box skid plate that ties into the frame and the bumper making it one solid unit. I got both for $269 I think. The only thing is that you have to order fog light extension wires ($20 from mopar) as the current foglight wiring won't reach.

Wr@ngler00 I would also say not to go with a tube bumper. I have a friend who has bent two of them. I keep telling him to go with a rock crawler type bumper but he likes the tube look. I think it looks nasty but its your jeep. If you do go with a tube bumper i would go with the fabtech style, i have hard some good things about them. Good luck.

Tdad While I was not a big fan of the tube bumper "look", I got a super deal on a used Smittybuilt rear bumper. I have to say that I've been happy with it. It has a 2" receiver which is great for the bike rack and also as a recovery point. As far as I know, the Smittybuilt is the only bumper that's actuall rated for towing. If you look at how it's built, it really is a frame mounted hitch that has the bumper tubes bolted on. It adds a little protection to the rear corners as well. When it gets scraped up on the trail, a little black spray paint fixes it right up.
It's one of the least expensive too - $200

It's this one, except mine is textured black:

Vector6 this was a mopar double tube bumper...



And then my SawZall had its way with it...
07-15-2006 01:10 PM
mrbigjeep no prob...i don't think any of us mind
07-15-2006 10:54 AM
wayoon Ok I get the point. Tube bumpers are right out. Thank you for putting me on the right trail.
07-02-2006 03:22 PM
mrbigjeep yea...you can get some rock rails or poison spyder rockers or shrockworks rockers...all of those are great and protect your rocker panels while giving you a step up
07-02-2006 12:01 PM
4Jeepn Another vote not for the tube bumpers. As they tend to also rust out after time. Look at Big daddy off road, warn, etc. Heck I still run the stock front bumper and it works just fine. Also for rocker guards don't get tube, look into those that fit nice and tight with the body.
07-02-2006 10:49 AM
409biscayne I know you're asking about tubular bumpers , but i just installed a Warn front bumper on Friday night , super impressed . Bolted right on in minutes , looks great , imho . It appears to be well built , but anything will be better than factory , good luck.
