Which Front Bumper?
 
I'll soon be adding a winch to my 2012 JK 2-dr, but I'm trying to decide on a bumper. I see photos that I like, but it's not always possible to ID the maker. beyond the two or three biggest players.

I'd like a full-width one -- not one that ends at the frame -- and I've got stock fenders. I'm running a three-inch lift with 33-inch tires. I like the idea of retaining the stock driving lights, but that's not critical. I do want to be able to see the winch spool and cable windings, at least a little bit, through something other than the fairlead.

Suggestions? Photos? Links? I like the Lift Kit Review sticky. I could use one for this topic.

Also, rock rails. I'm doing that next.

Didn't see that one. Thanks. Thing is, I like the first one, the AEV bumper.

The AEV is one of the very few full width bumpers that I like. That being said, $1200 for a bumper ain't happenin' for me.

I have been starting to look for an actual winch bumper.
Lately I've been leaning towards this:http://www.wranglerforum.com/f33/mop...t=mopar+bumper

Nope, I have two.. The one on my jeep and one still in the box... Love the bumper. I added the over rider to my jeep.. Does not come with the other bumper I'm selling..

To OP, they sell ends for this bumper for mid or full width.. For what I'm asking you can pick up an end kit and still be ahead..

I can't stand my 1/4" steel RH bumper. It's way too protective versus the AEV 3/16" one.
