Winch/front bumper help
I just bought my first wrangler today. It is a 2005 sahara se with a 6 cylinder 4L engine

I know not much about jeeps at all but I am anxious to start learning.
I plan on doing the following things immediately:

Install fog lights, a winch to the front, metal bumpers or grill guards (not sure what to call them) mirror mounts for when the doors are off, and a PA system (this one is for fun)

For the front bumper would this work? Found this on another site
Quadratec QR3 Dual-Tube Winch Mount Bumper with Hoop

Anyone know if this is a good combo or not?

As well as this for the back

Quadratec QR3 Dual-Tube Rear Bumper with Hitch

When you say "would this work", what does that mean? Yes, those are bumpers and I'm sure they would bolt on. Although I've never used any Quadratec products, my take on them is they are on the lower end of the quality and budget scale. I think if you took a poll, most jeepers would not choose to put a dual tube bumper on their jeep as they don't like the look. That being said, if you like the dual tube bumpers, go for it. Your building the Jeep for you and only you have to like it. It's kind of a personal taste sort of deal....

Good luck with the Jeep and welcome!

I wouldnt use that at all its cheap made stuff, i would go with a solid steel bumper like poison spyders bumpers and one with a winch plate built in.

u would have to buy a winch plate with any of those bumpers
