When you need the toughest, most durable bumper system ever created, look to the Smittybilt Rock Crawler Series. These heavy duty bumpers are designed for off road use and abuse. Durable powder coat painted 2" tubes or 1/4" steel plate protects your front end from those large rock out croppings. Each bumper has been designed for the off road enthusiast with sloping ends for greater tire travel and enhanced entry and exit. Available in both Textured Black and the New Titanium finish to match the Rock Crawler Rear Bumper Mount Tire Carrier.

Price: $250.00
Pros: Rugged look, perfect space for winch & convenient light mounts, Very Sturdy
Cons: without anything on it it looks very empty, very cool, just empty
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Got it as a present so im not sure if the price is correct but i love this bumper. Install was a little tough but i was able to do it alone with the help of a jack. Very, Very sturdy, you can jump on this thing, tow people with it and it wont move an inch. i just decked mine out with a LED light bar, KC fogs, and a winch and it makes the jeep look totally different. Perfect set up, couldnt be happier

Price: $280.00
Pros: Look good and does it job
Cons: A little bit of rust when the coating chips
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Bought this bumper when I wrecked the stock. Looks good and came with the black textured coating . Bought this bumper to hold a Warn 8274 winch, which it does with the Warn mount. Has 4 mounts for lighting, I use the bottom two for the stock fog lights, and 2 D-ring mounts. So far the welds have held up but haven't run into anything significant to test them. Has chipped a little and rusted but that was to be expected.

Price: $241.00
Pros: Heavy-Duty, light placement options
Cons: cheap powdercoat
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I bought this bumper to replace my 3" tube bumper for more protection on my 2.5L '98 Jeep. The bumper weighs about 70 lbs, so it was a little heavier than the tube bumpers I had... but hardly any sag. I like the 4 light tabs and the heavy-duty construction, but it's covered with cheap powdercoat that scratches easily. I don't have a winch, so instead, I put 2 8" lights in the middle which fits perfectly and fogs on top. Overall, a way better bumper than stock or tube bumpers.

Price: $250.00
Pros: strong, attractive poder coat, light mounts, strong winch mount, bullet-proof.
Cons: upper front light mounts not long enough(had to build brackets, easy) heavy(steel usually is, duh),
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This bumper fit perfectly with no mods. when lights are installed on the front top positions, it creates a visible absolute front of your jeep making it easier to know where your jeep ends. tech note and pet peeve when I see these installed with lights: please take to time to drill out the holes in the bars for the light wires. if you are careful, not retarded, and pay attention to what you are doing, you can run your wires inside the tubes so you dont have wires hanging everywhere. there are little holes on the under sides of the bars. drill them out large enough to run the wires and connectors, install a generic rubber grommet, and go. makes the install of lights much cleaner. it takes much more time, but definately worth the effort. recently was sandwiched on the freeway, and this bumper prevented any body damage on my jeep. powder coat came off a little, but didnt even tweak the metal. it is VERY solid.

Price: $230.00
Pros: Great Bumper, I love the look, bumper definitly looks better with a lifted jeep.
Cons: Not much beside looks kinda dumb on a stock jeep. I did take a little bit of hammering with a sledge hammer to get it to dit onto the frame. Normal procedure with a Jeep lol
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This bumper was the perfect fit for my jeep, i love the way it looks and is definitly and i get alot of completments, its availbale with D ring mounting points and winch plate and with 4 lights mounts. This bumper has it all, its really easy to put on all you need is a #55 torx bit, drill and mabey a sledehammer.

Pros: easy to install, strudy as hell, great price, great style lots of light tabs winch mounts up nicley great protection!
Cons: powdercoat is hard to duplicate after being severly scraped across rocks
Recommended? Yes

Comments: if your looking for good front end protection this is it. i stood my entire jeep on this front bumper (im pretty sure its the only thing that saved me from going on to my roof) and this thing didnt even scratch! its also a good investment to make if your friends are bad drivers and dont look when they back up that way you can just point at there tailgate and loaugh while your jeep gose unharmed!

Price: $250.00
Pros: Looks nice, Lightweight, protects my fenders
Cons: Only one top and one bottom bolt per side where it mounts...
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I need to weld an extension on to the mount so as to have more 'holding power' at the mounts. Was VERY well packaged when shipped. Looks really slick and the powdercoating looks really nice on it.

Price: $240.00
Pros: Nice agressive look, some fender protection, tabs for two sets of lights, good winch and grill protection, not as heavy as expected
Cons: Don't like smittybilt logo plate front and center Would prefer black powercoat so it could be easily touched up with rattle can paint
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This bumper was super easy to install. I had to do a little grinding on the top driver side bolt hole to make it accept the bolt. When installing with a winch plate, attach the bumper first using only the bottom two bolts then put winch plate on top. Need some spacer washers underneath the rear two bumper bolts to make it most solid on the frame.
