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.

jdmowery 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!!

jdmowery That's what I like to hear!! Still torn though..lift is done...wheels and tires go on tomorrow!!!
04-17-2012 04:56 PM
shewoolf 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
04-17-2012 04:54 PM
jdmowery 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....

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

04-17-2012 03:22 PM
jdmowery Care to send me a few pics of your Smittybilt? Patrick likes ARB but the Pics aren't convincing....
04-17-2012 03:21 PM
jdmowery That's not fair!! ;-)

I'm stuck in Ohio visiting family and dying to get back!!
