Anyone have a Rockslide Engineering front bumper?

I'm considering an aluminum one with bar. Pricey, but looks fantastic. Any reviews or guidance?

I've got the steel version with the bull bar. Wish I would of went with the aluminum one though. The welds were cleaned and polished real good. The finish is great. I had no problem bolting it up. Would I buy another. Yep.. I have no complaints at all.

Were you able to mount it yourself? Did everything line up properly or did you have to do any altering? What did you do about the fogs?

Thanks.

I had to relocate the vacuum pump for it to fit. Which involves cutting the the pump bracket off the frame rail. Its real easy to put on, If your installing a winch too you'll need to install it on the bumper first because the rear winch mount bolts are not accessible once the bumper is on. I ordered mine with 4" light holes instead of the 6" holes. In ways I wish I would of had it made with no holes. I plan on putting 3.5" LED lights in it when I get time. I also installed the sway bar disconnect skid plate and it has a real clean look to it.

I have the steel version with a winch. It's extremely well made and very heavy. I have their sway bar disconnect skid, rock sliders, rear bumper with tire carrier, and fender flares as well. It's definitely not cheap, but I think it is worth the price. Every time I'm out at the trails or at a Jeep Jamboree it gets a ton of attention.

I love the look of your Jeep. I've got RockSlide Engineering front and rear bumpers and love them. I'm trying to figure out if I want to do a lift or go with RockSlide fenders. I want to run 35" tires but keep it low. I'm old and short so I need to keep it low.
Does your tire stick out very far past the fenders?

The tires definitely stick out past the fenders. How much would be determined by backspacing, wheel width, etc..

I love the way that bumper lines up with the stock fenders.

Looks good but it is damn expensive especially in aluminum.
