What to do, what to do?

Hey all,
I just bought my wife a 19 JLU Sport. Needless to say we all love it so much that I told her its her Jeep M-F but its mine on the weekends LOL.

SO after two weekends with it we have had it out on the trails a couple times however, the last time out the NE Florida ecosystem got me good. While riding down a dirt road, what looked like a couple puddles in the tracks turned into a jeep swallowing mud hole. Right side down to the frame and had to get pulled by a old Chevy Blazer.

So I have since been looking at recovery gear and potential jeep Mods.
I need a Highlift jack, and want a new bumper and this just might work, however I have been out of the Jeep world for a minute now.

What is y'alls take on this bumper? Seems like it would be three birds with one bumper so to speak.
Thanks
Dan

When my Wife started eyeing up my Jeep. Guess who I bought a Jeep. Yup.

Solved that. When you get yours get a winch or stay out of strange holes...

Lots of good marital advice∆

My wife has been stealing my Jeep during the week while I am at work.

This all coming from Mrs. " I dont like jeeps, they are uncomfortable blah blah blah"

So yeah time for a second Jeep, I can smell it.

I like that bumper but I would want to get touchy feely with it before I bought it. I love the jack mount.

Yea,
buying another Jeep right now isn't in the cards so we have to share.
As for the Bumper It seems to be a solid option, although I have read some complaints about poor paint or powder coating and scratches during shipping. But, its a Jeep right?

I do agree with Maddog though, I would like to see one in person before I commit.

Oh Lord, I've screwed up then. My bride drove my Jeep for the first time yesterday to get used to the difference between it, and her car. This doesn't bode well for me..........

Your doomed, but hey there are much worse problems to be plagued with.
When I catch my financial breath from purchasing my Rubi I will see if Queenie is ready to come to the dark side.

Get yourself a winch and recovery gear, and don't venture into water filled holes without checking the depth with a stick first. A HiLift jack is useless when you are stuck in the mud IMO.

Oh well, it'll be fine I'm sure. She's a good kid, and lets me play with her '18 Mustang GT for time to time. So, I guess, maybe, I could let her drive the Jeep if she wants. Oh God, I can't believe I just said that........
