anybody use c4x4 bumpers?

just curious because ive never seen em until i looked to see what jeepinoutfitters had for bumpers.

http://jeepinoutfitters.com/scripts/...p?idproduct=37

the reason i like it is because it looks like theres a good amount of room to keep some fog lights protected when you dont see that on other bumpers..

thoughts?

My cousin has the full out winch bumper with all the bells and whistles from them and it awesome. He's bashed trees and shopping carts not a scratch on the powdercoat. He wrapped a vine around the headlight guard one time and kept going it broke the huge vine and barely budged the guard. Winched off it from some crazy angled(off a tree behind him around the tire and went backwards). If they mount about the same they are plenty strong. Good clean edges and welds too.

They're one of the older vendors. A ton of vendors have come and gone in the time they have been in business. I have seen the bumpers firsthand. They're stronger than a ARB model, but not the absolute strongest out there. But I personally wouldn't worry about it as they should provide plenty of protection.

I had a friend that hit a small deer with one and no damage. Later the XJ was rolled and the center hoop got tweaked (and replaced if memory serves me right the bumper was modular so that part got replaced). The last time I saw it the XJ got rearended and rammed into other parked cars. I honestly can't say what happened then as the other damage stood out more to me than the front bumper did.
