He already has the flares on order.

Nobody reads anymore.

The Iceland front bumper would look great on your jeep. Better than a brush guard.

If you re-read what i wrote, it says the combo would look nice, not that he needs to order both.

Your right nobody reads anymore.

Doesn't look that way to me.

Sounds like you didn't read:
Iceland offroad has fiberglass bumpers and thier flares would look real nice on your jeep.

Sounds like you did read:
The Iceland offroad bumper would look real nice with the flares you orded.

It's whatever though.

You kids will argue over basically nothing, that's all a little strange to me.

But, the real question I have is ..........What is up with that avatar ?

Hope that's not what you have in your future.

Welding tow hooks on the brush guard probably isn't a great idea. Either get tow hooks, or pony up for a bumper. The Iceland bumper would look soooooo BA on your rig. Don't they have D-ring mounts on that bumper?

It looks like you did a great job with your tire carrier, why don't you try your hand at building a custom bumper? That way you can tailor it to your wheeling requirements. Just a thought. Either way, your rig is beastly!!

well the reason why i dont do a bumper or cant decide to buy one is because where i live its all soft sand and hills and i wouldnt need a steel bumper for anything and its just a bunch of dead weight i dont need and my rig is already heavy enough...

if i do buy a bumper im leaning brush guard or proto fab bumper with stinger!?!

if i were to get the protofab i would definitely need to cut out a few holes for fog lights in the bumper tho....
i think im gonna have to put this aside until i decide what i really want to do!
my dad says brush guard too, some of you say either way is good and some are stuck on a steel bumper!
these all sound good to me for different reasons!

alright guys i decided to go with a brush guard!!!
now im debating on a few things, and these are my options!

A) roof rack and lights up top ON and no lights on the brush guard.
B) remove roof rack and lights and install light on brush guard instead.
C) add lights on brush guard, leave lights on roof rack and leave roof Rack.

I want your opinions!

The WJ looks great at 6.5". I'd still think about a "real" bumper in the future so it could house a winch. I know you're in the sand now, but you're so close to the rocks Did you get a full brushguard, or one of those little things thats only down low.

Reading your posts necessitates coffee or an energy drink, you're always soo excited!!! <--and using those all over the place. Maybe someone replaced your . key with !...LOL
