I like that one, I want it to stick out far so it will take down whats in front of me before it's to late. It's practical if your using it as a brush guard but if your just going for look then no it's prob not the best looking thing you can get.

n8smitty oh and btw....I had to drill holes in the smittybilt bumper to put the outer fogs on it. It doesn't come with holes for the lights.
10-09-2009 12:00 PM
n8smitty the two on the bumper are the kc replacement fogs. I like them better than the factory fogs. I'm not really sure if they are brighter but they work great. I use them all the time. the ones on the light bar are slimlite driving lights. they are very bright, I use them on back roads instead of my brights.

Are those the stock replacement fogs? I was thinking about getting those but did not know if they were any brighter than stock, i figured for $150 they better be.

jwells36 yeah all i did was clean it with acetone, spray two coats of etching primer and then spray it with two cans of dupli-color spray in bedliner. It was really easy and it looks great. Course anything would be an improvement over stock.

Geo that looks pretty sweet, espically for the price!
10-08-2009 05:15 PM
jwells36 Here are a couple of pics of the bumper that i bought and finished myself. Dont mind all the bugs squished on the front of it, we have had lots of rain in this area and the skeeters are thick.

TheTJRod I got the smittybilt XRC bumper that has the built in winch plate, no winch yet but one less thing to buy. Got it off ebay for $260 ($300 shipped). I had to lengthen the wires for my OE fog lights to use them, but easy enough. The front bumpers are super easy to install.

First day I got them I went to a Big Dogs Off Road event and muddied them up.

I got this bumper i havent picked it up though.
10-08-2009 03:26 PM
Geo yeah i basicly wanna see how far that hoop sticks out. I'm not really into the whole "stinger" thing.
10-08-2009 03:08 PM
jwells36 I need to take some i was trying to wait until i got the new lights on it but i can go ahead and take a few pics anyway for you. The good thing about this bumper is it will accept any winch plate.

ChrisTX It's not bad. Does what it was designed to do. It will knock down small trees if you need it to. What else do you want to know?
10-08-2009 02:01 PM
Geo ^^^^^ yup

Jesse-James Mine came from an Ebay fabricator by the name of "Thriller Customs", came unfinished for $160. Better to deal with a smaller outfit IMHO.

10-08-2009 01:48 PM
jgano23 click me

these are unfinished (unpainted) bumpers from made by ryansfab.net. i have their front bumber on my cj and paid way less than other bumpers. they are really heavy and stand up to trees and rocks (trust me )

Whatīs about a Smittybilt Rockcrawler bumper (159$)?
You could add an additional tubular grille guard.



Or a Smittybilt XRC bumper (399$)?

10-08-2009 01:46 PM
mudslinger150 smitty builts other bumper is a lot like that, rock crusher or something, $399 they had a deal going on for awhile that if you buy that bumper they throw in a rear bumper for free

nicolas-eric If you like the look of tubular bumpers itīs a good choice.
