|Topek||Waiting on selling my 4wheeler and picking up these bumpers for sure thanks everyone for you pic's and input|

Love mine, front and back, easy install, certainly solid feeling but I haven't rammed into anything yet. Maybe the .055 explains 70lbs and not 100. Some advantage there. The service at oewheelsdirect on eBay was great. Someone pointed out the rear was crooked and with a phone call and some bolt adjustments or looked great.

additional pics of KO bumper
The shipping was very fast. Very well packaged. Removing the old bumper took maybe 30 minutes and installing the new bumper took 15 minutes (with two guys). It came with all new hardware, and the powder coating looked great. Very good deal for the cash, they do sell quick.

|jerseywild||KO offroad bumper on Ebay has a number you can talk to the guy. The bumper i just bought says 2011-2013 Jeeps do not require a vacuum pump relocation kit. These bumpers will fit with the vacuum pump at it's current location. Buy from KO Off Road who understands applied Off Road engineering and stands behind the quality of it's products for years to come.|

|1tridad||Do I just finished installing front and back Ko bumpers from oewheels or whatever they're called via eBay. Arrived in 5 days, really nicely packaged. Now I'm no welder, but these look beautiful and are definitely solid, a little over 70lbs each. The weld joints are smooth and the powder coating is even. Put them on solo which took about 4 hours (including removing oems) for both. Very easy, relatively smoothly for a non mechanic. I love them at least cosmetically so far. Haven't gotten them out on the beach yet. No winch or lights yet, and my lift ,tires ,and wheels aren't on , so no pics because it looks a bit ridiculous at this point. Hopefully have phase 1 complete with pics later this week|

Ok. So I finally got my KO Offroad bumper. There was a slight shipping mishap and UPS tore up the box and damaged the first one sent. The seller made everything right immediately and shipped a new one. When I received it, the packaging was extra beefy. He did a great job.
Outside of my own weak girl moment of getting the original bumper unbolted, the installation went fine. After 2 hours of trying to undo bolts i was defeated by the wrench. I took it to a shop and they said it was a perfect fit!! I absolutely love the bumper.

I have the KO rock sliders and for $148 shipped to my door, it was an awesome deal. They are powdercoated and are of equal quality of the Rugged Ridge rails on my last Jeep.

I just ordered a front winch bumper for myself from them. I figure that its my first real mod and is a small investment, compared to some other bumpers out there. I also loved the look of it. We shall see.... it's in transit right now.
So far, I can only tell you that they had amazing customer service and were able to answer all my questions quickly and courteously.

These bumpers are coming out of riverside ca , I don't know the place but I have seen them in the hub and I have one on my truck right now going to guy with a JK on my route
So I think the guy is drop shipping them out of here to people
|01-28-2014 08:21 PM|
I have narrowed my bumper search to a rampage or a smittybilt SRC.
While ebay cruising I found these KO offroad bumpers and they have
copies of both these for less. The smitty copy was $299 vs $499 and
rampage was $445 vs $558.
I have seen a little bit on here about them and some guesses about
origin. Are they any good?

Great info, thanks!

I left him my # to call when they are in so I can do a package deal. Told me he would cut a deal plus free shipping. Only thing I worried about is the durability and rust of long term. Not sure of the powder coat quality.

|Ratman138||I will chime in and say I have had mine mounted since July. It took two of us about 25 minutes to get it set up. I also run a winch on it with no issues. I have done a fair amount of off roading with it and it has held us wonderfully. I am very happy with the purchase and will likely go back to him when i am ready for the rear bumper and carrier. my only issue is now there are some better styles, but hey, nothing wrong with the design I already have.|
|01-09-2014 09:55 AM|
Is this the same ebay seller mentioned, oewheelsdirect? If so, do you know which styles of the bumpers will be have the LEDs?
Thanks for the update!
|01-08-2014 05:09 PM|
Just an update. I talked to the guy who sells these bumpers. Believe the compa ny was off road works. I didnt want a bumper that deleted the fog lights. He told me a bumper would be available in about a month with LED's already wired in that will splice into existing fog light wiring.
Also a new rear bumper/tire carrier will be available soon that opens in one piece instead of the two step tire then door currently available.
I like the look of the rock rails except there are only two points of attachment. Seems the middle would be suseptible to bowing-in causing damage to the frame. I guess if it only for rugged mall crawling it would be fine.
Good price point though....

|Ontariojeeper||It has mounting point for aftermarket fogs so I was hoping I could sell mine and get some to mount there.|
|01-03-2014 12:39 PM|
|scipio337||Very nice! I only wish those bumpers had cutouts for the stock fog lights. What are your plans for the fogs?|

|Ontariojeeper||Couple more pics|
