Pros: Heavy duty, excellent welds and finishing, awesome design, price, 3/4" d-ring mounts, built in winch plate
Cons: Included hardware is only grade 5, included bolts are to big for CJ7 frame, no nuts or lock washers in hardware pack.
Comments: I ordered this bumper for my 86 CJ7 on new years day and it was on my door step in 8 days. Very impressed with build and shipping time. This bumper seems very heavy duty. All the welds look great and the corners are finished very well. I got the forward angled hoop, not the stinger, with light tabs and it looks great. This bumper is more custom looking than most of the others out there but still for a very good price. My only complaint is with the hardware pack they sent with it. They said it was straight bolt on but the bolts they sent are 1/2" and the frame holes for a CJ7 are 7/16". So I have to drill the frame. The bolts are only grade 5, I expected grade 8. They did not supply nuts or lock washers which may not be a big deal with newer Jeeps but on a CJ you ha e to have them. Over all this seems like an excellent product.
UPDATE: I sent an FYI email to JCR about the hardware pack, not expecting a new one because I just figured it was a standard pack that they sent with every bumper of that type. The next day a new hardware pack was shipped to me Priority mail. GREAT customer service.
