usual suspect The quality seems good, paint seems to hold up well, but I am not sure where they make the parts. The hardware bolts etc are not the best, but I always replace with good grade stainless or grade 8 steel. I have all smittybilt gear....the front and rear SRC classic bumpers, body armor front and rear with 4" fenders and rock sliders.

4cylToy Smittybuilt isn't exactly 'quality', but it good for the budget. This is my XRC front bumper with the XR8 winch

It sags but I have it as high as it can mount. And I have it packed full of stuff that helps keep the shape a little better.

SRC front bumper on my TJ, it has a pretty good aggressive design, one of the perks about this, is if you have an a**hole driver in front of you that's cuts you off, just let'em have the 40lbs+ of steel. Haha

TJ4x4me I have that cargo net on my list. Should get it this time next year! Lol.
03-28-2014 12:25 PM
synful off-road I got the cargo net for the rear from Smittybilt. I really like it!
03-27-2014 08:19 PM
TJ4x4me Here's that top. Went on fairly easy.

bubbabud I bought a used JKR a 2010 it already had XRC bumpers and X2O comp series winch with synthetic rope installed. I have heard the story's about Smittybilt Quality so it kind of made me wonder. The bumper's are solid. the finish and welds look good.
I unspooled the winch rope and respooled it towing the jeep with the brakes locked on a gravel surface [Sucked it right up] so I feel that in spite of the negative talk it will do the job and look good doing it

Aharmon5050 Yes there xrc. iPhone didn't like the x I guess lol

Yours looks great

I used to have the SRC, but swapped it for a Metalcloak bumper.

Duck Vader I have Smittybilt all around on mine. PO put it on. I can't complain. So far they are holding up quite well and I have not had any issues.

LAMAR99WRANGLER I have the classic front and rear bumpers with the D rings and a Smittybuilt soft top and the GEAR tailgate panel and they aren't bad. I would buy them again, the bumpers hardware isn't great and I had to enlarge 2 of the holes on the rear bumper to get it to fit right.

adamc55 I have the smittybilt front and rear tube fenders, side armor and rock sliders. I am very happy with everything and for the price they are unbeatable IMO. My only complaint might be the quality of the hardware but even the powder coating seems nice. My jeep was scrubbing front and rear fenders against the side of a washout and the powder coating was unharmed

ap5170 If you don't mind where they're made then they're the way to go if you're on a budget. They beat everyone's prices hands down. I've resisted buying this brand simply because I always try to avoid Chinese manufacturing.

terrajay i got the smittybilt tube fenders / front and rear bumber, heavy duty very nice for the price imo
