Help Me Build My Jeep!!!
Hey guys,

I'm really really new to this forum (as in I created my account today), but I have a stock 2005 Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon (TJ) and am looking to add some armor. I am looking for a front bumper, side rails/sliders, and a rear bumper. I was wondering if I could get some suggestions as to which parts would fit me best. The parts don't all have to be the same brand, but I would like them to at least look somewhat similar (i.e. not a tube front bumper and a rock crawling rear bumper).

For the front bumper, there are a few things that I would like to have on it:
2)winch mount (8,000 lb winch)
3)rock Crowler style like the Smittybilt XRC series
4)d-ring mounting brackets
5)I would like for it to be able to take some abuse on the trail, like the entire jeep dropping onto it

For the side rails:
2)these also need to be able to support the jeep's weight during a drop
3)I have a friend who's life was saved when his jeep was tboned bc the rails stopped the 1/2 ton truck from getting to him, so I would like for these rails to be very strong so that they might do the same in that situation

Rear bumper:
1)hitch (so I can tow my 2,000 lb. boat)
2)d-ring mounting brackets
3)if it doesn't have a spare tire carrier built in, I would like it to have the option so that I could add it somewhere down the line
4)this one, more-so than the front bumper and sliders, needs to be able to support the weight of the jeep dropping onto it bc the Lj's rear drags A LOT!!
5)for this one, I would also like the rock crawler look (like the smittybilt XRC series)

Any suggestions are appreciated!!!!!
Again, for the front and rear bumpers, I want to have the rock crawler look. And btw, I don't really have a budget for this, but I would like for it to not go above the 1,000-1,500 dollar range.

Again, ANY input is appreciated, and thanks for reading

So im all about the Poison spyder bumpers they have two versions of the stinger i have the very basic trail one and its sweet, but u have to get a winch plate tho or the BFH version that has it built in already, also there rockers are amazing and come in a variety of ways for our LJ jeeps
Thats my next step is their sliders from Poison Spyder
Rear bumpers are hard to come by that say they tow, I wouldn't get the smittybilt because there made of cheap material

This stinger u can see just over the top of the hood mostly the hoop by 4in,
Check out Poison Spyder If u dont have a really small budget

If u got 1000 go Poison Spyder BFH Trail stinger, And there Rocker Knockers that'll run you $750 out the door if u go to and get free shipping,
