Price: $250.00
Pros: Great design, shorty, tow hooks, winch mount
Cons: Cheap coating
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I didn't buy the Smittybilt XRC, but the Tuff Stuff "XRC Style". It's identical in design and at half the cost. Mounts in minutes, is functional, and really looks good on a TJ.

Price: $375.99
Pros: Everything... Integrated winch mount, light tabs, and easy to install
Cons: Lights mount about bull bar and not below
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This bumper looks as good as it functions. i have yet to use it to the extent it was designed for, but i will get there. But.... the winch mounted on with with ease (but for it to be easy, you must mount the winch before you install the bumper). and as for the light tabs, i wish they would allow for mounting the lights below the bull bar and not above. also, there is no channel to run the wire through the bumper. you either have to drill your own holes, or utilize the ever handy zip ties.

Price: $265.00
Pros: Nice welds, solid construction lower winch plate built in, built in fair lead mount.
Cons: textured finish
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I really like this bumper, no matter what other forum posters say about Smittybilt's products. I looked at different bumpers for about 2 months and I am glad I picked the XRC from Smittybilt.

Install was easy enough and the instructions we fine with the exception of one small point..no torque limits were given. A quick search on the net gave me anywhere from 65-75 Foot pounds, so I used 65. The Front top bolts were impossible to get a socket with a torque wrench on, so I used a normal wrench and ball parked the torque amount.

Winch mounting has to be done before the bumper is mounted.

I don't like textured finishes that much. They look great, but are a pain to touch up. I'd rather had black semi-gloss that is easy to touch up with a rattle can.

Other than that, I am very happy..

Price: $299.00
Pros: Great price, power coated Black
Cons: Bolt holes were off by .5 inch
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The bumper is well made and slid right on the front frame. I was impressed with the quality of the welding and fabrication. However, once I started bolting it on, I found the bolt pattern was off about .5 inch. So it was either welding it on or cutting holes. So I cut the holes out .375 inch on the outside of all six holes, it bolted in just fine. I've had a LOT of compliments in just a week... Great look, will post pictures soon...
