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.

Pros: Came with a xrc 8 winch
Cons: None
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The XRC Rock crawler bumper gives you everything you need. It is very easy to install, it lines up perfectly where the stock bumper was. Also has 2 spots ready for extra off road lighting. Textured finish takes abuse very well.

Price: $399.00
Pros: easy install, great look, solid quality!
Cons: none so far
Recommended? Yes

Comments: A solid bumper without breaking the bank! I did a lot of research on bumpers and read review after review. I started focusing in smittybuilt and right away my neighbor who has connections to Hanson "hanson bumpers" got all over me about the decision.. As soon as I pulled in to the drive way and did the install he zipped his lip. This bumper is soilid construction, mounts right up to the factory holes and maybe takes 20-30 min total time install. D ring tabs and a winch guard. Soild powder coat with a textured overcoat.

I have read a ton of reviews about the hardware SB includes with their products and I am keeping an eye to see if it rusts, other than that this thing rocks!!!!

Pros: good finish, good looks
Cons: non whatsoever
Recommended? Yes

Comments: nice and easy to install. Just the two front bolts kinda hard to get.
*when installing a winch, it is HARD to get to the front 2 bolts that hold the winch. If you are going to install a winch, do it with the bumper off... it will save a LOT of time

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 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..
