Used to have one of these on my old TJ and let it go when I sold it. I would kind of like to find another one but can't find anybody still selling them. Fabtech doesn't seem to make them anymore either. I know there used to be knock-off versions as well but don't know much about these. EBay hasn't been any help finding one thus far.

Thanks for any help that you can provide.

don't think they are made anymore...try craigslist or put a want to buy ad up in your local 4x4 shops


I bought one for my YJ years ago... it didn't fit at all, I sent it back and got a genright bumper that fit

Thank you.

The problem is that I live in Southern WI and there aren't any good 4x4 shops nor much for jeep items on Craigslist locally. I am very envious of places that have lots of parts up for sale and some of the deals that guys on here get.

Thanks again for the advice I do appreciate any and all help.

what aspect of the Fabtech attracted you to it?

maybe we can find you an alternative bumper, if we knew just what part/s of that bumper you like the most

I was originally attracted to it because it looked like a pre-runner bumper and I was building my 2.5L YJ light.. finally ended up with an aluminum metalcloak bumper after I swapped the genright onto my TJ

(please excuse the 28" garage tires..but neither Jeep will fit in my small garage with the 33's mounted)

genright..built like a tank, but heavy..also has an available bolt on hoop (which I don't have)


metalcloak..lighter for sure, but not as HD as the genright..modular construction lets you add the different pieces as your budget allows

Man that's a really good question that I didn't readily know the answer to. Mainly I think that it is a bit of nostalgia for the last jeep that I let go. But, I really like the prerunner bar, that it's only frame width, the integrated skid plate.

I was just throwing it out there hoping that someone on here had one and wanted a change or had one laying around that had already been swapped out.
