I like the color of it fo sho, but its not an american model. they probably have a custom mount for the winch though that keeps it nice and low with the solenoid mounted else where.

Jeeps:
99' XJ<->5.5" Lift; 35's; SYE; Winch; much more goodies too
02' WJ<->Rebuilt from wreck, still stock

you know, I'm gunna be that guy... I dont particularly like it, looks kinda bulbous to me. IMO unless they can make it completely flush, like fairlead in the original bumper, I'd prefer an offroad bumper. Plus offroad bumpers make life fun. When my XJ wouldnt start I pushed it up the driveway into the garage using my ARB, I've also pushed my front end pretty deep into some snow banks without regrets, I've knocked over a couple bushes and brush, and the PO of the ARB took out a small tree with it. Plus when I get a winch it will be completely hidden behind the bumper.

This is true, the flat black doesn't look to bad at all in that picture. I REALLY love how the stock bumpers look on the WJ, I would never cut them significantly or take them off. I like the lines. I would like to see someone make a winch mount plate that you can use with the existing bumpers.

Hahaha. I am gonna go with your point, seeing how it is very valid. The steel bumpers on the Rubicon are so bad *** and you can take out about anything you want with them. Also the winch looks really good on it. The thing that I personally don't like about steel bumpers on the WJ or even the TJ for example is when the bar goes all the way across and covers the lights. That is just me.

Rough Country was also supposed to be making a long arm kit for the WJ.... didn't happen. Haha. But I wonder if there is anyone making one for the WJ.

One of only winch bumpers I like for the WJ is the LSR Incline. hahah

Winch plate does not look bad at all. That also looks like the RCX long arm kit. Being how it is gray and looks like RC haha.

I wonder if anyone will buy it. Maybe they made some improvement?

I still am an IRO fan too!

Is that the one Akro (Jamie) has?! I love that bumper it looks amazing. If I had bought my bumper new I would have been more picky but the ARB just happened to be on craigslist I mean damn what are the chances of a WJ one being up, at such a steal too!

Pffffffftch like the rear shock relocation brackets? No offense but those alone were enough to completely turn me off to RC, seems like they just do not care about the quality of their products. I hear some of their other products have major issues too, the shocks suck. Nope not touchin em.
