E-Bay bumper question

I am looking to buy this bumper from E-Bay and while it looks like a Smittybilt, the seller says its an in-house product. Anyone have any experience with this guy and/or his bumper??

FWIW, there is no real rock crawling here but my son likes the look....


Not the sharpest bulb in the box....

My Jeep is possessed with the goal of making me lose my religion....

That looks more like the rugged ridge bumper. He has a good rating... Go for it.

Rugged Ridge and Smitty are the same bumper

I like to have just the center section of that bumper.

Waiting on my Rough Country lift to sag!

trail gear made one like that but it was discontinued. you might find a supplier than still has one.

Do everything with a positive attitude, it won't always work but you'll piss enough people off to make it worthwhile.

the voices aren't real but they sure have good ideas.

I have an "ebay" rear bumper... That bumper has taken more abuse and handled it better than the 900$ bestop rear bumper that a person I know has... of course I have a JK, but ebay bumpers are not crap... I live in NJ and have had mine on for 6 months & no rust at all, excellent packing during shipping as well

Rear bumper came in and it does not include tire carrier, I have to buy that separately.... but since the listing looked hinkey, they did let it go at cost so its not all bad. Still saved a little....
