I'm not a huge fan of the prices they put on their products. IMO the money would be better spent on another maker.

I'll give you my honest opinion, overpriced and questionable design. Now don't think I'm biased because I build bumpers because I have no problem recommending and giving a thumbs up to a lot of companies out there such as RigidCo, Custom 4x4, Protofab.... they all make a topnotch product and I'd recommend one of theirs anytime!

But the two I found by this company on ebay, a non-winch and winch bumper. The non-winch was almost $300 and doesn't even have recovery points. Honestly looks like a homebuilt job. It's also not made with tubing, it's pipe probably bent using a Harbor Freight bender.

Here's where I get harsh. That winch bumper of theirs.....they shouldn't be building bumpers. PERIOD. I say that because the mounts use the 3 stock mounting holes per side and that's it. That is NOT sufficient for any bumper with a winch and/or d-rings. Another case of someone being irresponsible to the consumer and trying to make a buck without really knowing what the heck they are doing. People trust in a company to build a product that is capable of what it is built for and in this case the product is not built to handle a winch. Stupid.

There are a lot of companies making quality, capable products, check them out.

If you go to their website (jcroffroad.com) they have a winch bumper. Not as cheap, but still cheaper than most.
