Which YJ front bumper...

I've been browsing around for YJ front bumpers... I plan on putting a winch up front (eventually) and would also like to mount a pair of lights up front. What does everyone got?

I'm not exactly keen on the stock front bumper.

I have a Metalcloak with the crawler caps. There are lots of choices for stubby style bumpers if that's what your looking at. I also like the Blue Torch.

I wasn't exactly looking for a stubby, I don't like the short ones. I like the long/full length style bumpers.

I have the Rugged Ridge Bumper with Armor. It's designed for TJs but I had drilled holes previously for some Autozone tow hooks and it turns out the holes I drilled matched the holes for the TJ so boom... Sweet bumper. Just watch out though, you get a bumper like this and it seems like people are just magnetized to it. They pull out in front of me, try and cut me off at stop signs and turn right in front of me from the opposite side of the intersection. Pulled on it, winched from it, hit random buildings in the woods, hit 55 gallon drums, pallets, whatever. It's fun to bash stuff with it.

Basically, but isn't flat across the front. I never had a stock so I bought this thinking it was the cheap option, but it's still good I think.

Right, and the OP said he doesnt like the stock bumper. If he did he could weld D-Rings to it and he would have your bumper. He is looking for a full width bumper to replace the stock one he has. Ill be keeping an eye out since I am looking for the same thing and I also like full width. This is also my DD and full width gives better protection for when that ******* pulls out in front of you.
