Any idea what bumper this is?
 
I went through the entire MEGA Front Bumper thread and looked at every bumper sold by Quadratec and still couldn't find this bumper. Would any of you all be able to identify it?

Here is a pic:

Thanks in advance for any help that you may be able to provide.

I know they look almost exactly the same, but if you look at them closely, they aren't. On the left is the Aries bumper. On the right is the bumper in question.

The black modular bumper looks a little closer.

But still not the same- good luck on your search!

Look on ebay. It looks like those Chinese bumpers that they sell on eBay. Just search jeep bumper

Yeah, it looks like an e-autogrilles or Paramount Restyling.
I think the one in the pic is the older style. Now they have LED lighting in them:

Looks like it's paramount, although some of the ebay pics differ:

This one only shows one "slot" on the endcap.

While this one shows two:

They're similar to the Wild Boar modular bumper, too. Lots of info on these in this thread:

Forum member Chris @ Jeep add ons has it cheaper (with warranty) than ebay. Apparently the ebay ones are factory seconds.

Hahaha, that's great! I almost bought that one myself but the dealer was a little too far of a drive from where I live. You got a deal though man. Having everything so nicely done from the start is the way to go. That Jeep was clean.

Also, scipio337, thanks for the links! It looks like you found the bumper. :thumb: I think I'd be better off buying it from Jeep AddOns, considering that they have the warranty and everything. What's great is their HQ and showroom is located somewhere around 15 mins from my house. I've been there like ten times and never had any idea how big they were until I visited their site.

For anyone interested, here is a link to the bumpers sold by Jeep AddOns, which are first run quality and come with a warranty: http://www.truckaddons.com/Catalog/s...d_bumpers.html

Thanks for the link. Last time I checked the website, they didn't have them listed, but it looks like the prices went up a bit. A few months ago, the price of that bumper was $399 shipped. I would contact the vendor here, see if there are any forum discounts!

Yeah, I'm going to try and get a forum discount and I won't have to pay shipping because I can just drive down the road and pick it up from them myself. I've kind of learned that it's always a good idea to call the vendor and see if they can offer you a deal. :thumb:
