Price: $599.00
Pros: Over all good craftsmanship and very appealing design.
Cons: The only con I can think of is that it sits about 1/8 of an inch close to my grill on one side. That could be the bumper or just the flimsy plastic grill being a little out of place.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Being a Welder and metal fabricator by trade I naturally notice and start critiquing any welds I see. The welds on this bumper are solid, smooth and full length welds, no starts and stops that I could find and very little undercut.

Price: $350.00
Pros: Nice look easy install
Cons: Need to drill hole if you mount fog light to bracket, otherwise you have to round wire in the plastic conduit and looks bad. I plan on getting right angle drill a drilling hole from below and routing wires thrum tube
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Good price, great look, easy install. Much easier to install than the XRC rear with tire carrier. Took me longer to loosen Todd bolts than it did to install

Price: $1,100.00
Pros: Look Great
Cons: Powder coat finish is horrible. Rust started two days after install and first rain. Customer service is horrible, giving me the run around on a return
Recommended? No

Comments: These bumpers look great but Smittybilt has some serious quality control and customer service issues. These were purchased summer 2012. Two days later they were rusting and the powder coat is bubbling off at several differnet locations. Front and rear.

Price: $369.99
Pros: great looking, sturdy light mount tabs, recovery shackle points, winch ready, fairlead ready
Cons: none so far!
Recommended? Yes

Comments: awesome powdercoat finish, i haven't put shackles on mine yet - but using a jerk strap to save the jeep from the river didn't affect the finish. winch ready, light ready, and at a reasonable price with easy installation.

Price: $399.99
Pros: Makes your jeep look thick, heavy, and tough.
Cons: when you look at the jeep from the front, the bumper really just sticks out, it doesn't fit in perfectly
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Really easy to install. Very difficult to screw in some of the bolts because a socket wrench typically won't fit between the bumper. (you need a normal wrench)

Price: $850.00
Pros: Rugged, cool shape
Cons: None
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I have the XRC front and back, with tire carrier on my YJ (paid $850 for all three). Initially looked at these for the tire carrier because my 33" spare was making my tailgate miserable. I wanted a finish to match the bestop highrock side rails. I just though the highrock line of bumpers looked a little cheesy. I glad I avoided the highrock because the finish already getting foggy. THese bumpers are super easy to install!

Price: $425.00
Pros: Looks great Already has place to mount winch easy installation
Cons: Mounting holes didn't line up with frame right.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The bumper looks great and rugged and is very strong. It mounts the exact same way the stock bumper did. The holes on the new bumper did not line up exactly with the factory holes in the frame but it only took an hour to fix that with some simple drilling. Overall it was a great buy and i'm very happy.

Pros: Seems tough
Cons: Powercoat is not that great and the insides of bolt holes rust
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I think this looks really great and feels tough. The powder coat is a bit weak and bolt holes will rust inside unless you hit them with a little rustoleum.
