Pros: Looks Good, Cheap, Easy Install
Cons: Middle Light Tabs, Cheap Powder Coating
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Like the look a lot and was easy for me to install by myself. Can't mount lights on middle tabs without modification to the bolt on the lights. The powder coat is cheap and thin. I like the bumper and I knew what I was get for $215.

small amount of surface rust in a corner where the weld wasn't smoothed out. The tow holes don't fit the 1/2" smittybilt shackles.
The thing looks awesome though. Have yet to get some more lights for it. (two extra light tabs on top of it)

Pros: Heavy gauge, good welds
Cons: Sits far in front of jeep
Recommended? Yes

Comments: As I am familiar with smittybilts rep, I inspected the quality upon delivery. Good solid welds on this bumper, and powdercoat looked smooth and solid. For the money, this is a nice, good looking bumper.

Price: $219.00
Pros: Looks great, easy install
Cons: Pics from quadratec were slightly misleading, I expected it to be taller instead of deeper, just doesn't sit the way I expected.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Bought the package deal that included this bumper and the smittybilt xrc8 winch for a reasonable price. I am very pleased with my purchase, just wish I had time to really get out on the trails and put it to the test. Like I mentioned in the cons section, the pictures from quadratec are somewhat misleading in my opinion. I saw this bumper as a forward leaning bumper that was not angled far off of vertical, but I was mistaken it sticks out from the grille much farther then expected. Do not take that as a complaint though, just a warning, I still love the way it looks.

Pros: Looks good, plenty strong, good coverage.
Cons: Modifications to install, shipping dinged it up a bit.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Had to do some grinding on the frame mounts to get it to fit flush. Got a bit dinged up in shipping. Hardware wasn't in the box, but I bought stainless stuff to use anyways. Light mounts are in a good spot. Haven't mounted a winch yet.

Pros: looks good, solid
Cons: cutout for the winch fairlead was a little small
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Great bumper, winch is a pain to mount (which means its a pain to steal) went on extreamly easy, took longer to get the stock bumper off. i was backed into by a 5 ton truck that did 4 grand damage before the lower part of it hit my bumper and barely left a mark, another car brushed it wrecking their quarter panel, bumper and mirror, cant find a mark on it. ive smashed 3 old desks with it and cant find a mark. and i drove through an area offroading with trees that had a 4 inch diameter and still no damage. dragged myself out of a mudhole that burried my front tires and held up great. cant wait to get the side armour and rear bumper

Cons: No place to run wiring for aftermarket lights.

Pros: looks great, durable, winch mount...
Cons: None so far
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Bumper looks great and does the job. Installation was a little long because we stripped the bolts, so as long as you don't do that it shouldn't take more than an hour or 2.

Pros: Easy Install, Very Durable, Rough looking texture.
Cons: 4 mount points rather then the stock 6, tough to install off-road lights.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I love the bumper. Looks great on my jeep and any other jeep i have seen it on. It has a tough and rough feeling/looking texture. Very durable and looks like it can take a few hits. Its a little heavy but considering what it does I dont mind.

Price: $235.00
Pros: Easy Install, Great fit, nice black textured finish, cheap, great upgrade from stock. D-Ring mounts.
Cons: Fairly Weak
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Picked up the Smittybilt SRC bumper from 4Wheel Parts the other day for $235 after taxes, on sale. Easy install and looks great on the YJ. The only concern is the weak mounting. It has D-Ring mounts but with only 2 bolts supporting the bumper to the frame I dont think i want to be pulling my rig up with their help. I would still definitely recommend this product.
