Price: $1.00
Pros: Pretty studly. People don't crowd me when street parking.
Cons: Fog lamp relocation requires extending the stock wiring.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I got this bumper when I bought the Jeep. At first I was going to replace it with something a little more subdued, but I noticed that people now tend to not crowd me when street parking and when they do hit me, they lose. Did not come with a winch roller mount as it was already on the rig, so I called Bestop to inquire about getting one and it's 65 dollars plus shipping.

Pros: Nice looking. easy to install, improved clearance, affordable - added the grill guard also...looks great!
Cons: havent taken off road yet..not sure how the armor will hold up.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Just installed my new front bumper and grill guard. Easy to install over factory bumper and looks much better..with a huge improvement to front tire clearance. This bumper was very affordable..add another $120 for the grill guard and it makes a nice step up in look and function from factory.

Pros: Strong, good looking. Built in winch mount and comes with fairlead mount. Optional to upgrade to tubular light bar. Many recovery points. Optional to upgrade to rock roller bar on bottom.
Cons: In order to put winch on, bumper has to come off, winch and fairlead mount bolted to bumper and then back on.

Comments: I really like how the bumper can be purchased for relatively cheap and then upgraded. Mine has the tubular light bar upgrade and the rock roller on the bottom.

Pros: Bolted on very easily. Fit and finish is good. Came packed very well.
Cons: Grill guard bolts could be beefier.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This bumper was easier to mount than my Bodyarmor rear bumper. Finish is superior as well. I like the solid feel and the clean lines. I used the install as an opportunity to get rid of all the torx bolts on the front and replace them with grade 8's. I drilled the grill guard to internally route the fog light wires which was surprisingly easy. One minor gripe is that the bolts that hold the grill guard on the bumper seem rather flimsy. Time will tell if it becomes an issue. Like kind like the optional tool box but have to think it over a while.

Price: $639.97
Pros: Fairly easy to install, the fact that who ever previously owned my jeep put different bolts on the stock bumper (prob replaced it) was my only problem. I am pretty picky about bumpers, I'm not to crazy about the huge, extravagant looking bumpers and I wanted something more simple but with great function and style. That's exactly what I got from this.
Cons: Only gripe would be better connection for the grill hard. But nothin some welding can't fix.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This bumper has great function in protection and accommodation. It also has aggressive yet classy style. I looked around for a while for the right bumper and here it is. I bought it for my 2004 TJ. It's easy to install, just might need an extra person for the lifting, but its possible for one person to do. I'm thinking about cutting holes into the front to put fog lights in the bumper. I love how the ends come up to match the fenders. It some what gives it a look like the bumpers for the JK.

Pros: Looks greats, Strong,functional.
Cons: None so far.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I've had mine for a couple years now and have put it through a lot.
Its held up great. I have a 12500 Mile winch bolted on it and it holds it extremely well. The finish still looks good. I've yet to find any problems with it.

Price: $350.00
Pros: Full width protection and high clearance, built with 3/16 steel, which I consider just right - strong enough without being to heavy, and uses 8 mounting points, if I understand instructions correctly. I've been shopping for a full width bumper that is also high clearance. There are only a few to choose from. This is the best looking of them, is among the lightest, and IMO is stronger than the other lightweight ones. Looks perfect to me, and unlike aluminum, I can modify this bumper if I want.
Cons: None that I know of yet, though I haven't purchased it yet.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I haven't purchased a front bumper yet, but this one appears to be approximately what I'm looking for. Closest I've found and best looking of the full width high clearance types.

Though I'd probably have the stinger welded in place to make it stronger attached, and also I might have extensions welded onto the ends of bumper to extend it so it's the full width of my flares.

Pros: Looks great and give alot more clearance even with a stock lift and also has a great place for your fog lamps that wont get in the way of the head lights.
Cons:  The grill guard bar is held on with really weak bolds but nothin a little spot weldin cant fix
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Its a really easy bolt on the only hard part is gettin the old bumper off, but i had to do it with a ratchet and elbow grease, if you have power tools i strongly suggest to use them it makes it a lot easier.

Pros: Great clearance, strong and sturdy, accepts most winches, provide excellent protection!
Cons: None
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I bought my TJ Rubicon with these bumbers. I have owned it for a year now and can not find anything bad about them. I live in the Colorado Rockies and I have deffinitly tested the durability of these bumpers. Other than a few scratches, nothing has scaved them. I also have the High Rock rocker gaurds. They to have proved their value on the trail. They support the weight of the vehicle with no problem and provide great protection against rocks.

Pros: Great looking bumper beefy as hell looks really good with the stainless tube guard, standard winch mounting pattern
Cons: not much room for winch solenoid box mounting if you have the tube guard.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Great bumper very strong, the mounting holes for the bottom of the frame didn't line up had to get a burr grinder bit to fix it. The Tube guard didn't want to bolt up either it took two guys to push on it to get it to line up. Happened to catch a deal from for a free tube guard (122.00 value)

Price: $520.00
Pros: Excellent quality, tough powdercoat, super easy install
Cons: No holes for factory fog lights but easy to drill holes in bumper
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Very high quality product. Came with all hardware needed. The powdercoat was excellent quality and looks like it will hold up to abuse. Total install time was about 45 mins with hand tools. There were no holes for factory lights but it took only 10 mins to drills holes and mount the factory lights. Purchased optional Grille Guard and it installed super easy and matched the black textured powdercoating. Would highly recommend and would buy again. The purchase price included shipping.
