Heres another. A bit cheaper than the ARB.

Not sure if they make one for a ZJ or not. I see that make one for the XJ and TJ, so they may make one for the ZJ and mite not have the image posted on their site. Shoot them an email and find out.

They do make one for a ZJ. I was going to order it this fall, but just scored a bumper for free that with a little modification will work.

Going to make for a fun winter project.



BTW, IMO if the KMT bumper is built correctly, it's one of the better looking bumpers I've seen. However there have been issues there in the past.

I do know of three who have bought bumpers from them in the last year, and none of them have had an issue.

I just got my KMA bumpers all finished up and i think they look great. I have heard about other people having issues but from the sound of it and my experience they have taken care of all the problem and are producing a quality product
