Finally found my bumper, after looking around ive decided on the jk brawler light bumper with bull bar. I like the idea of being able to use the fog lights, weight of the bumper, and easy install (or so im told). One thing i am not sure is if i need the shackles if my rig is my DD. Almost 12 months later still havent took her off road, eeeeekkkkk.

Im going to hold off on the purchase in hopes of a holiday deal coming up, free shackles, or shipping from P.S......

PSC here. Great stuff and great people. Apologize for the lame driveway pics, I don't have any recent excursions on my cell. IMHO, do get the D-ring mounts. Sounds like a good season for ya!

On another note, I wish I had Doyxx's fenders! Once again, nice pics Delaxx!

Install takes a grand total of 5 minutes maximum. The POS plastic stock bumper on the other hand took about an hour or more to.get off. The plastic screws would.just strip and have to be pryed out. Idk bout the painting since I had mine powdercoated.

Very easy to install. Painted it with 2 coats black self etching primer and 2 coats black auto paint.

I heard that the Poison Spyder bumpers require cutting of the frame rail for 2012+ jeeps. That was a deal breaker for me as it killed any possibilities of different bumpers in the future.

Great choice, I like mine!

I would highly recommend getting the shackle tabs; you never know when you might need them. An extra $50 is a small price to pay. And it sounds like you want to go off road, so get'em for when you finally do.

I put the Poison Spyder Brawler Lite on both my '12 and '13 Rubicons and didn't have to cut anything. They fit perfectly and the swap takes a half hour at the most. You don't even need to relocate the vacuum pump with these bumpers.

I believe only the BFH bumpers require you to cut the frame rail & take the crasher bar out, it goes for any 07-up

I did that on mine I like how the bumper is brought closer to the body.

It is optional on the other bumpers.

No need to cut the frame rail to install the lite bumper.

If you add the skid plate, then you have to remove the crash bar, or trim the sides so the skid plate will fit. I opted to trim, and only had to remove a small amount of metal to make it fit.
