I'm looking at getting a new front bumper for my 14' JKU. I want something with a winch mount, factory fog light spots, and preferably a light bar. Ive been looking at the Barricade bumper from ExtremeTerrain, the Body Armor Mid-Stubby that's on Quadrate, and glanced at the Smittybuilt SRC which I like a lot but it doesn't have the fog light spots (picky I know). My budget is $500. If you guys could give me any ideas or feedback on these bumpers id appreciate it!

you could just modify stock bumper and save a few dollars. I originally did this as a stop gap but now after 2 years I have no desire for a heavier front bumper. $50 for end caps and I think about $160 for winch plate.

That looks good and I've thought about that but someone hit me in a parking lot so the bumper is getting replaced

OE factory take off bumpers are pretty cheap and sometimes free if you wanted to go that route with some Rough Country Bumper End Caps and a Winch Plate.

If you want to replace the bumper the Barricade Trail Force HD Front Bumper that you linked to is a great option. It has the features you're looking for and is in budget. Check out the customer submitted reviews and pictures on the site. They may help you make your decision. No matter how you decide to go, shoot me a PM for the best pricing!

When you say side extensions what exactly do you mean? I don't really want to buy a bumper then have to mod it
The XRC is a modular design THE bumper comes with winch mount and you can specify several options for end caps, bull bars, stingers and light mounts all designed to attach to the center section.

Thanks for all your input guys. I ordered one. I'll post the pics very soon ;)
I'm glad we got you set up with one! Can't wait to see the pics of it mounted up.

Well after a minor headache with UPS and two small scratches in the powder coat from shipping, the bumper is in and looks great! I can't wait to get the fog lights wired up and some KC's on it!

That looks really nice. Its going to look even better with a quality winch mounted on it.

That it would and that will come in due time. I've been looking at winches but it seems most quality ones are kinda up there in price so that may need to hold off for a while. I'm thinking lights first then rear bumper and tire carrier then I'll get into the details of a winch and stuff.
