Your favorite front bumper?

What is your favorite non-wench front bumper? I'm looking to replace my stock bumper, but looks are very important to me. There are a lot of funny looking bumpers out there.

I really like the JCR Deluxe PreRunner Bumper, but it's kinda pricey once you add in the tie-in brackets and shipping. I don't need the PreRunner bar, but it looks cool.

What bumpers do you guys like?

It's a toss up between the ARB and Hanson pre-runner bumpers. I got the Hanson one myself because I don't like how the D-ring tabs on the ARB are only 1/4" or so thick.

Personally I like this one but that's because I put it together. It's a JCR Offroad DIY bumper:



It's going to look awesome once I put a finish on it.

That is nice. I unfortunately don't have access to a welder anymore. That sure would save some cash too.

I got a welder for Christmas and this was my first project. My welds got better as I went along. I'm not sure I actually saved any money though, after all the supplies that I have bought for it. It's been a blast to put together though.

I can't wait to see pictures of it on your Jeep. That is the bumper I'm leaning towards.

Are you going to mount the driving lights as JCR does on their display rig?

It's got the light tabs on the back of the bar (can't see them in the pic), and as soon as I can afford a set of lights I'm gonna mount them there. I haven't picked out a set of lights yet either though.

I'm a big fan of my JCR prerunner. Mines 2 years old and I've used it well. The new JCR bumpers are even better, I really like their new rear bumpers.
I like and recommend everything Jcr makes.

Kudos to JCR for developing new products, but for some odd reason i'd never buy their products.

i currently have the Jcr crusaders Basic but im thinking about ordering the DIY winch with the pre runner bar and throwing a winch on the front of the jeep... I think the basic bumper is too basic but im the one to blame for ordering that one. Only complaint bout the jcr bumper is the powder coating is coming off but ill still buy jcr products like the new sliders

We haven't offered powder coating on our products since like 2006! Is your bumper that old? If not, we didn't finish it!
