IMDaveReynolds Here is a better pic of the full-width Rock Hard Front bumper. The thing is a beast. Heavy, but really solid. The rear is nice also.

Thx - as someone else said LOD. I bought it directly from Chris, fit and finish were as expected. After reading through this entire post I felt it was the best one for me given the style and weight (since I did not plan on a lift).

Is there a scratch n dent section for those of us who will probably scrape them up anyways and want to save $$?

I used a similar set up with my old TJ and some bolt on brackets and a Falcon 5200 tow bar. Worked well.

On another note, the barricade bumper is a nice piece. I had three delivered damaged and like the style and price. Just couldn't hold out hope for one being delivered in good shape.

freeltm I like the Barricade. Install was very easy. I did have to drill one of the frame holes out because it was a little too small. Weighs more than factory but I don't see any sag. I was actually a little concerned about that. I'm very pleased with the look. I plan to use the "D" ring mounts as an attachment point to tow the Jeep behind my camper.

Thank you

I also wanted a tire carrier that opens with the rear gate and ... I got a hell of a deal (price was a concern). $1699 for front and rear bumpers w/tire carrier, three LED light bars, rock sliders (that also work as steps), hilift mount and license plate relocate/third brake light. As an unintended consequence I now have 1/4" steel bumpers which are certainly stronger, albeit heavier, and matching components.
