Yeah i have the HighRock bumper and absolutely love it. I have had no problems with it and it came with a winch plate. I also bought the stainless steel grille guard

Yours was the first example I've seen. I really like it a lot.

I've seen them, but am looking for something a little bit more aggressive looking. I have also looked at the Rugged Ridge XHD Modular bumpers, but I don't know how well they make their bumpers compared to their soft tops.

Check the new BFH or BHF bumpers from Poison Spyder, very sick looking
I've got the Rockmen Mercinary on mime, and its worth taking a look at. Winched out a custom rail jobber out of 3 feet of mud using one of my d rings as an anchor last weekend. Very strong and well built. Built in winch plate too, check my profile for pics.

it really depends on your taste in bumpers. I have a smittybilt XRC front bumper that just came in today.. Smittybilt makes a lot of cheaper versions of other things, but I think their bumpers are very very well built. I also have the XRC rear bumper and with all of the reenforcement that goes under it, that thing has to be close to indestructable. I also really like the look of the bestop highrocks, but I went with the XRC because I wanted a matching set and I liked the rear bumper much better. I'll put up pics once I get it installed.

Thank you for the info as I'm looking not for stainless steel, but the either glossy black texture. Though I will take a look at the smittybilt bumpers later tonight.

McGridDLe: Ok, I really liked the look of the smittybilt SRC front bumper. Plus it's a lot cheaper lol. Thank you for the advice.

I had the Warn on my Jeep for years, never had any complaints, I would also look at the Savvy bumper, they are light weight and around $350....

im not sure about the SRC, but the XRC has a really nice powder coat finish.. whatever you choose, its gonna look great!

I vote Warn, but Im bias. Love mine - tough and fairly aggressive without going over the top. Just my $.02.

Here's a link to the Blue Torch Fabworks front bumper I just installed a couple of days ago. It fit perfectly and it's super-beefy. Comes with two d-ring mounts as well. And shipping didn't cost me a dime. 4wd.com was running a special......free shipping. Call them, they might still have that special going on right now. I'll see if I can upload some pics of my finished, installed front bumper. I went ahead and installed their rear bumper as well. Couldn't be happier with how they fit and how they're built.
