hayseed_lmd Could anyone recommend the warn full width? Love the styling and it looks decently stout. Anybody have any input on ease of installation or how they hold up? Thanks in advance!

Eagle Jk I read all of the reviews. Some were installed on 2011 and 2014's.

The Barricade seems like a great bumper, but I don't like the thought of loosing the splash guard and the Front skid plate they have on XT doesn't seem to fit a 2014, only goes up to 2009.

Termite3102 Dam I like that Spyder bumper! I do believe I will send back the Rugged Ridge I just had sent to the house! Should have looked at this FIRST! lol

Eagle Jk I didn't have to move the vac pump. That was one thing I didn't want to do when installing a new bumper. The less headache the better.

I was also looking at the Body Armor bumper. Seems like the reviews said they had to cut or drill. Maybe both.

Jenkins01 I am in the same spot as a lot of others on this thread. I am looking to upgrade front and rear bumpers. I really like the look of the Body Armor Stubby (looks more like a mid width). I havent been able to find much info on them, does anyone have any experience with Body Armor bumpers?

Thanks in advance for any input!

So the Barricade went on with the vacuum pump and bracket in the stock location? That would be nice. I'm relocating the pump itself to get it up and out of the way of the elements, I just don't feel like cutting/grinding the bracket off this time.

It seems the reviews on the Barricade are very good. At the price how can you go wrong. I will order it in the next few weeks (Traveling on business). Now, if only there is a winch mega thread.....Hmmmm....

The OEM fog lights were 24W each, so 48W total - these are 5x10W, so 50W total, and about a thousand times brighter. (I actually had to put diffusers on the lights, to keep them from being overwhelming to other drivers. DOT certified? Of course they are, officer. What? No, I've lost the paperwork... you'll just have to take my word for it...)
That looks awesome!

Wow! Nice job!

Cozmik I have skimmed this thread and some of these bumpers look awesome.

Now rather than start a new thread, I have a question pertaining to front bumpers and 2012+ JK's. Does anyone make a bumper that does NOT require cutting/grinding the brake booster pump bracket off? I have a Rough Country Hybrid stubby. Fit my '07 no problem. Fit my '13 after a lot of cutting/grinding/swearing. Went to install it on my '14 today and aborted mission when I realized I needed the grinder again. I am relocating the pump with an Or-Fab kit, but if possible I'd like to leave the factory bracket be.

Thanks guys.

Great looking bumper!
