mrbigjeep other than reading JP's article about it i don't have any experience with it but they seem to like it and i think kilby makes some good stout stuff.

TXoutlaw Thanks for all the response... leaning towards the Kilby 50" front bumper now, you can mount a winch dirrectly to it, this way I will be set up for later when I buy a winch. Anybody have any experience with this bumper?

mrbigjeep still make sure its what you want and it is functional for you or your just waistin $$$ to replace it.

Just my $.02

IBTJn Wheelin' friend of mine has them on his CJ (which is anything but a mall cruiser)...not my cup of tea either. But indeed it's all about what YOU like...not what anyone else likes IMO. Example: Here's one of my friends CJ with short tubes. They look fine to me on his rig.



Vs. My TJ (which I also wanted something different)

.....because tube bumpers are round and the air slips around them instead of getting all caught up on those corners other bumpers have. just saying

hardy1531 Me? no I have the stock bumpers minus the "Jugs".... for now.

Isn't that the same as plastering a honda civic with stickers to make it go faster...

tiny terror I was partial to them too, until I saw some of Rokman's bumpers.
11-09-2006 02:53 PM
activelydying gotcha. when you're done with the rule book, could you pass it on. i still like those bumpers.

Missed that in my search...

Saw a jeep with tube bumpers when I was at lunch... Didn't like as much as I thought I would... Didn't look functional like 04tjinsa stated.

Scratched it from my wish list

04tjinsa I have them and now wish I had gotten something more functional like a stinger. But it is all about what you like.
