Hey everyone,

Finally got my Jeep! While its' not 100% built out the way I envision, it has the right idea for most of it. I'm working my way through identifying what's been done to it so far and have a good grasp on most of it. While it's trivial, I can't figure out what type of front bumper it has.

The rear bumper and siderails are Smittybilt, so thinking the front would be also, but I can't find anything quite like it online.

Anyone able to identify it?

Thanks --Dan

WOW..the air flow to your radiator is really obstructed. I suggest that you keep a eye out for engine cooling overheating.

Thanks for the lead MudDevil78! After back tracking the watermarks, it looks like its Chinese knock off by a company called GSI Group (https://www.amazon.com/GSI-Textured-Crawler-Bumper-Wrangler/dp/B01M08DJUL?ref_=ast_bbp_dp)

Seems to be a knock off of VPR 4x4's VPR-126-SS (https://www.vpr4x4.com/jk-jku-2007-2018-front-bumper-vpr-126-ss/)

Not thrilled to have a knock off, but at least it looks cool! And when it inevitably falls apart I wont feel so bad replacing it.

Thanks Old Dogger -- So far, so good. I'm in Michigan so we run a little cooler t, but haven't it out on the trails yet; will continue to monitor. Ironically the CarFax shows it originally came from your neck of the country in AZ. Either way, the LED bar didn't work, so it came off which opened it up some more too.
