Bumper Discussion
 
I would love some feedback on bumpers. I bought my Jeep with a Warn Rock crawler rear bumper and Tire carrier. My front bumper is stock. I have been looking around for bumpers and Do not really like the look of the front rock crawler bumper. I have been considering selling the rear bumper and purchasing the Smitty Bilt XRC front and rear bumpers along with the rock sliders. I know Warn makes a great product but the XRC's are very attractive and I believe the XRC rear has a towing capacity where the Warn does not.

Can I get thoughts on the two bumpers or if anyone has a different fabricator that they want to throw in the ring. Im looking for some options.

Thanks!!

Hi,

Well I am the FNG here also and I just bought some nice rocker rails that I could not pass up from Smitybilt, but the front bumper thing, wow, I don't know where to start...

I want to keep my stock fogs, I want D rings, I don't like when the winch sticks way up out of the bumper and blocks the airflow, and I will be honest, money is a concern,
I saw a Bestop, yes I know, but I think I could work with it a little and still get my winch and some additional stuff for my Jeep also.

I have also been searching everywhere including catalogs and online...

Thanks for your help, and sorry tristan4.0 I feel your pain...

I'm not a big smittybuilt fan. for what you get you can get a lot more from a smaller company. Look into AtoZ Fab, Savvy, Romkin, Gen Right ect all of them make there stuff here with USA metals the same cannot be said about smittybuilt.
