mwmoon At that price, it's probably wishful thinking. If you can find an extra hundred dollars, the JCR and Poison Spyder bumpers meet your needs at right around $600.

Same here!

My wants list is mid-width, prerunner, takes stock fog lights, and is around $500 or less.

Wishful thinking, I know.

It looks a little like a Smittybilt XRC bumper, but has fog light holes and looks a little wider:




I'd love to know what the bumper is, but I don't think it's the RR.

I'm not getting a rear bumper just yet. When I do it will be one that has lights mounted in them.

Anyone have any ideas what bumper that is? Rugged Ridge or Smitty modular? Looks like the prerunner is bolted and not welded.

If your user name is correct, and you have a COD Edition Wrangler, you already have an AEV Bumper.

joecatch Now that this thread is 2 years old, it would be very helpful if you could post how your new bumper has held up. I am planning on going with a Warn later this year but have rust concerns. You guys with 2 year old bumper, are they rusting?

Also, another question I didn't see in these 25 pages....what did you do with the stock OEM bumper? Did you sell it, keep it or throw it out? I would think it must be worth sometihng to a junk yard or somebody?

Rev. JKU I got the Warn elite full width. I guess I am not the only one who could not get the fender/ bumper gaps exact on both sides. Anal I guess.

My JCR Vanguard bumper arrived today! I know....it didn't happen until I post pictures but IT IS HERE OUTSIDE THE FRONT DOOR! This one weighs a ton - it will take both of us to drag it into the house and unpackage it. I needed something to protect my jeep from deer and this bumper will do exactly what I need it to do!

I am so very happy!!!!

mwmoon I ended up going with the Poison Spyder, but as I've said before, it was literally a toss-up between them and the JCR. (When it comes time to visit the MEGA Rear Bumper thread, I may get the JCR tire carrier.)

mwmoon Yeah, man. I know why the prices are outdated. Doesn't change the fact that they are outdated. Thanks.

I've narrowed my choices to either the Poison Spyder JK Brawler Lite Front Bumper with Brawler Bar or the JCR Dagger Stubby Front Pre-Runner Winch Bumper.

Both are fantastic looking bumpers. I just can't decide which I want to pull the trigger on.

It was started over two years ago.

Like the M/T bumper. Nice size, recessed winch and that bar looks good.

mwmoon Hey, vendors:

Woo me with a sweet deal on a bumper and an Engo 10k winch with synthetic line.

I'm thinking something that looks similar to the JCR Dagger Mid Width Front Pre-Runner Winch Bumper, but I'm flexible.

My inbox is open!

(Also posting in this thread to see if you guys know of any great deals on bumpers/winches that are currently going on or if you have any success stories from working with certain vendors. Some of the prices I found in this thread are a bit outdated.)

unboundmo What bumper companies have the gas/water tank tray attachment?---to fit around the spare tire.. I have a Bestop bumper with tire carrier but seems they don't make this add on accessory.

Any ideas..? I was going to fab something up but I was looking for a starter somewhat or trays w/straps that I can weld and fab to..

What have others done?

----- I just realized this is a front bumper thread.. Is there a rear bumper thread?

Wondered about functionality also.

Noob question: Do the different widths (stubby or full) have any major functionality difference? Or mainly for looks?

Just wondering because I want to add a front bumper. I have 33's now, but will upgrade to 35's in the future. I want to make sure the bumper won't get in the way, etc.
I'm interested in getting a stubby for my daily driver. After noting how important aero is in Nascar, I wondered if mpg would decrease going this way.
Just curious.

kbruce130 I've had the Smittybilt Atlas installed for a few months now. Thus far no issues. The fitment and finish were both very good. Installation was relatively easy. It's a decent bumper for the price.
