HK_Runner Thanks for the information. I'll call them to find out what the approximate wait times are on the bumpers and sliders. I'm in no rush since my Jeep is fully rigged. I was actually going to put their bumper and sliders on my 4Runner before I got the Jeep and decided to leave the 4R mostly stock.

Installation of the front bumper was really straight forward. To bolt up the skid plate, it helps to have an extra pair of hands to hold it up while the other person threads the bolts. Everything else can be done with one person. For the stock fogs, Shrockworks says you can unclip the stock wiring and pull it through to get the extra length needed, but I just extended my wires by soldering in several inches of extra wire.

I have their sliders too. They're very solid. Mine have taken a bunch of smacks and scrapes, and are holding up well. No dents or bends, just scratches. I put a strip of grip tape on the top, along the entire length of them because otherwise they're quite slippery when used as a stepper. If you do this make sure the grip tape is only on top and doesn't wrap around to the sides, otherwise you'll scrap your leg on them when getting in and out while wearing shorts.

yomondo I've had my Shrockworks mid-width front bumper for over three years and I've had no problems and no regrets.

Reasons I chose this bumper:
- Nice look, nice lines, IMO.
- Mount for the stock fogs.
- The skid plate to protect the e-locker.
- The winch sits down low, not blocking much airflow to the radiator, and not too conspicuous for nosy passers by. This is also a more solid position, right in between the frame rails, for when using the winch.
- Winch hoop to protect the winch, and mount lights on.
- The winch hoop is 2.5" in diameter, beefier looking than some others.
- Beefy shackle mounts.
- Screw holes to mount the front license plate.
- Great quality. Worth the money IMO.
- Since most people aren't willing to wait for a Shrockworks, that makes my Jeep a little more unique.

If I had any negatives to list, I would, but honestly I don't have any. I mean other than the long wait, that everyone is already well aware of.

Lusus_Naturae I really wanted to get the Shrockworks, but the wait time was long, and add the cost on top and I went elsewhere. I hear the quality is really good though.

After doing research I also wonder how much the bumpers weigh too, in real life, not just the estimated weight. At 100+lb a piece that's a lot of weight on each end too.

I just waited eight months for my first NFA stamp to get processed. Just order it and forget about it! When you get your 1911, post some picks.

legitposter 4-6 months? Completely not worth it. Remember, you'll be putting miles on your Jeep for 6 months. If you buy shrock then you'll lose 6 months of Jeep mileage but without a new bumper. It's difficult to translate it to money but that lost entertainment is worth something. 6 months of miles on the clock are miles you'll never get back... Why not spend them with a new bumper now?

After all you you are assuming you'll be alive after the next 6 months. Maybe maybe not?

Pick out a bumper you like that is available now, order it now, install it next weekend. Drive it and smile.

So I'm debating on a brawler lite but I don't like it as much.

Farnham21 All look great to me the one I don't like is the one without the grille guard. And the price is right for sure. I'm having a hard time now choosing between that one and the poison spyder one below. PS is $588 so it leans me more towards the warn but both are so badass

Do a google image search. Some of the pics make it look big and blocky/boxy. Let me know what ya think

Has anyone seen the warn rock crawler stubby in person? That was one of my original picks. Also the expedition One DX.

Although the shrockworks is pretty sweet!

HK_Runner The front may not look as fancy as the rear but it is incredibly well designed. Each angle and tab has been thought out carefully. Read up on it, and you may change your mind. I have the AEV front/rear bumper and the tire carrier...not even close.

I can understand you saying that about the rear (functional, etc) but the front? Just a flat piece of metal with a bar sticking out of it. There is no real engineering in it (like the Nemesis, AEV or Expedition One product line) nor is there any style to it....all for $1000+. I don't see the hooplah.

It doesn't "come" finished. They finish it for you, but you pay for that. There are plenty of other stubbies that come fully finished.

ACE JK 2007-13, Pro Series Front Bumper (Bull Bar)

ACE JK 2007-13, Pro Series Front Bumper (Stinger)

Site is weird, scroll down.
EVO: Bumper/Armor/Skids, 1/4 Pounder Front JK Bumper

Would cost $100 to powdercoat.

NFRs2000NYC Meh. Their front is plane jane, has an insane wait time, and isn't cheap. I'd look elsewhere. I'd rather get an LOD Armorlite or an EXP1 if you want a full width. If you want mid, there are 50 other choices that IMHO look better.
