I'm running AtoZ's front bumper "mounting kit". It's a plate that you can mount another bumper on or just use as a minimalist style bumper. I have D-ring mounts on it and I just attached the winch fairlead mount to it. I think it looks hardcore. It functions great too. You can't beat the 60 dollar price tag either.

Im really impressed with my front bumper its very sturdy and has done its job protecting the front /fenders from trees etc. and for $200 shipped to my door you cant beat that. Its an eautogrilles bumper from ebay and looks just like the smitybuilt xrc

Day I put it on


Day I got it muddy

I also cut my plastic jeep cover so it would work with my new bumper

I'm partial to stinger bumpers, but stubby + winch and shackles are a close second.

I like my Metalcloak bumper because it bolts together, which let me add different components as funds allowed... and if I ever bend or otherwise damage a piece I'll be able to just replace that piece

as of right now, I'm running the aluminum base with the 43" hi-crawler caps, t6 aluminum shackle mounts, license plate adapter, and a mid stinger grille guard...and I may add the t6 aluminum fairlead after I switch my winch over to synthetic line

looks something like this

This is my next purchase. My buddy has one, it could use some reenforcement, but pretty sturdy.

A Tj bumper I modded, well cut some shackle slots and drilled a couple of holes, to fit it. And added a brush/light guard to it.
It came with a winch mount.
