Here's my bumper explanation from another thread. Let me know if any of the links don't work for you.

I will say that the steel on the light brackets is no joke. I mounted the light bar first and then used a sawzall, and the sawing definitely worked the mounting hardward pretty hard (though it's still rock solid). If I had it to do again, I'd consider cutting the tabs before mounting if you've got a bench mounted vice.

It's also this shorty bumper cap set as well as this skid plate. It appears that Elevated may not be making the skid anymore, though threre are quite obviously many like it with a similar minimalist look.

Beyond all that, it's a stock bumper, though in the interest of full disclosure I should also note that I bedlined the "Jeep" logo and added this grille mesh.

Stock JKU Front Bumper Hoop

Have had NO luck finding a front bumper hoop for a stock front bumper.
Does anyone know a company that makes such a part.

Thanks,
Don
