new bumpers for me
 
about a month ago i upgraded to the pavement ends front bumper. very basic and very cheap. I got it for less than 200 shipped through amazon prime.

not my picture, but one through google search.

I had been in the market for a rear bumper. I was wanting one with incorporated rear hitch, and was set on the ACE Pro series. I looked around more and started liking the body armor rear bumper. Its also simple and basic. I got it for 300 shipped through amazon prime. Should be here Wednesday! :dance:

Cool.

I've been considering the same combo that you got.
(I really can't stand plastic Jeep bumpers, seems out of character.)

Can't believe it's only been a month. I thought I had them longer.

Here is the thread with after pics.

Love them so far. I like the finish of the rear bumper. But I will eventually have everything color matched.

Do you mean color matching the bumpers to each other, or the whole Jeep, or what?

After seeing all the pictures, I'm almost certain this is the route I'm going with mine.
I love the simplicity of the front bumper (As long as it is flat across the top, houses the fog lights, and has shackle mounts it's perfect for my wants/needs).
And I like the way that rear bumper allows me to keep my stock hitch.

I'm still running stock wheels and tires though, so I might just save up and do everything at once.

All the same reasons why I went with this setup. One other reason was value. Both bumpers set me back avout $500.

Post pics once you have yours on. I have debating putting shackles in the back. If I do, it will be back schackles.

I'd like to color match the front and rear bumpers to a satin black. Slight contrast from the body, but matching the soft top.
