Price: $800.00
Pros: Easy install, tire carrier opens with gate, stout and tire carrier works great.
Cons: HEAVY! The recovery points hang below the bumper and could be a problem for approach angles.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I was looking for a tire carrier that opened with the gate. This fit the bill and was about 500 cheaper than the other similar carrier/bumper combos. No regrets, it looks good and works great.

Comments: This bumper has a great look, was easy to install and it was very reasonably priced. It's up tight against the tub making for easy manuverability when climbing.

Pros: Great looks, and protection
Cons: NONE
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Bought this bumper used. Great looks, great powder coat, great strength. I haven't tested out its strength towing, but just looking at how it is built, im sure it could handle quite a bit. I'm planning on modding it for a swing out tire carrier. We'll so how it handles that.

Price: $325.00
Pros: Rated class 2.5 for towing
Cons: just a bumper
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Install was super simple, no issues with fitment. Looking back I should have either got a bumper/tire carrier combo that was rated for towing (smittybilt) or got a more flexible tire carrier that also carries jerry cans. Live and learn.

Price: $373.00
Pros: easy install - bolted right up. It took longer to remove the old bumper then it did to install the new one. Tow rated (legal) D-ring recovery points
Cons: none
Recommended? Yes

Comments: *Price is in Canukistani dollars*

I am extremely pleased with the bumper - the install was
20 minutes and it would have been half that with a helper,
I removed the bumper and tow-bar the day before as they
were damaged. The box was a little beat up from shipping
but it was well protected. The hardware was loose in the
box but all there - instructions were simple and self explanatory.
Nice welds, nice finish, very clean over all and very beefy -
this thing is solid. Over all I have to say I am extremely
pleased with the purchase - it's stout and tow rated the two
things I was looking for.

Price: $340.00
Pros: good looks, quick install, much better than factory
Cons: poorly packaged... had some scratches on one side right out of the box. Bolts were kinda thrown in the box loose
Recommended? Yes

Comments: It was kinda tricky getting the bolts to line up. Looks pretty solid and ties into the factory bumper holes (so not drilling). I didn't have any hitch issues as some have stated. I slid a Reese hitch right in and the pin lined up and locked in perfect.

Price: $263.00
Pros: Well Built, Good Looking, 2" Receiver
Cons: None
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This bumper was a much better alternative than keeping the stock bumper and adding a separate receiver hitch. Not that I was overly concerned about rear ground clearance, but it was a good excuse for replacing the factory bumper that I really didn't care for. I had no issues with bolt holes lining up or accepting receiver hitches as other reviewers mentioned. I was very impressed with how thick the finish is on the bumper, it seems like it should keep looking great for many years to come.

Price: $283.00
Pros: Looks sharp! Weighs 3 times more than stock. Has a class 2.5 hitch rated for towing.
Cons: None I can see
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I bought mine from JC Whitney with a 20% off email offer. With shipping I still saved over EVERY BODY ELSE who sell it. I read about bolts not lining up and let me tell you I was nervous about attempting the install. So it comes in 2 days after I ordered it and I took off the old bumper. Now using a floor jack to lift the 45 pound thing, I put in the two lower bolts loosely. Then the lower crossmember bolts. Still no problem. Upper crossmember bolts would not start. But guess what? Looking at it I see the lower frame tab on the bumper is bent slightly up, which holds the bumper a little low. Low enough to keep the bolts from starting. So I tightened the frame bolts and this brought the bumper right into perfect position. The upper bolts started so....NO PROBLEM!

Price: $325.00
Pros: Very stout bumper, integrated hitch
Cons: Towing capacity and tounge weight but that is really more of a wrangler limit then the bumper
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I installed it by myself and it wasn't too bad just required a little manuvering.

Price: $299.99
Pros: Rated 2" Receiver, Super Beefy D-Ring mounts
Cons: No Spare carrier
Recommended? Yes

Comments: if you get the optional slide-away carrier and have a slash cut aftermarket exhaust you will burn whatever you are carrying along with the tie-downs you're using. If you just get the bumper it's great

Price: $299.00
Pros: Strong, well built, nice paintjob
Cons: Puts the hitch high and if you have a bigger tire you might have to have a hitch extender to add some hitch accesories
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Overall a good product, might need a little twirking, but it's the nicest bumper without a tire carrier a TJ owner can get.
