You're going to counter-answer me in every thread from now on, huh?

On top of me having not the greatest opinion of your observation skills, I now have to fear your reading comprehension skills?

How did I ever say anything about a stubby bumper? The Shovel story is entirely in New York. Uh oh ... I see the problem... you're a geography failure as well. OK, bud, New York is a state that in a lot of ways is just like PA. In fact, it's really close to PA. Same trees, sames muds, sometimes worse snows, but you get the gist of it.

No, it just gets old seeing you spew your self-rightous **** all over anyone who dares do something you might disagree with or consider unsafe.

I'm not sure it should be called 'self-righteous' if the person is indeed actually right all the time. But then, I may be wrong.

'Right' can often be a matter of opinion, and that's where the issue is.

Stubby + hoodline tube fenders work well for me.

If I had stock fenders, I'd want bumper protection like JeeperDon, etc

This one is 50 inches. Made by a local shop, looks like a warn.

I'm also partial to the type of bumper that slips over the front of the frame, rather than one that makes the nose longer. That way the approach angle isn't reduced. Many designs start with 2"x4" or larger steel stock all the way across which adds to the overall length of the frame.

I am just rockin the stock bumper without the milk jugs and some OEM style tow hooks, did YJ's even come with milk jugs? Every TJ I see has milk jugs I have never seen a YJ with milk jugs?

I agree (thus my current bumper), but I also bent a leaf spring my first trip out w/ the new bumper. I ended up hitting my shackle on things that the previous bumper would have hit instead before. I still think it's better, but something to consider.

Also, if weight is a concern, switching from my old bumper and winch plate to the current bumper with the winch plate integrated, I lost probably 30lbs.

TJ bumpers will fit with some slight modding.
I have one. It needed slots for the shackles and a few holes drilled, but the frame rails are the same size and distance on a YJ and TJ.
