New Smittybilt SRC bumpers

4 Wheel Drive Hardware's home page is advertising these new Smittybilt "rock crawler" bumpers.
I was checking out the tire carrier/rear bumper.
It looks pretty nice, and the price is right.
Has anyone seen these? Any opinions good ,bad or otherwise?

I like the looks of the front and rear bumpers. Woulds like to see some reviews on these before any purchase though.

I was looking at the same rear bumper. I like the look of the Olympic A/T Slider Rear Bumper which is almost the same. Now I just have to see if either is rated so I can use the hitch for towing a trailer.

Hal,
I like the Olympic slider bumper also, but I'm not crazy about thier tire carrier.
I tried getting more info on the Smittybilt bumper on their web site , but it looks like it hasnt been updated in quite a while.

Mike,
Thanks for the reply. (I saw your thread on the SRC bumpers yesterday.)
After my original post I went ahead and ordered one and they told me it would not ship out till "late February". (This was a couple weeks ago).
A couple days later I changed my mind and canceled my order with 4wdHardware and ordered a Wilderness bumper/tire carrier from a diffrent site.
Jon

I love the look of these bumpers and am going to do some debating about whether or not I want to purchase. I just purchased Smittybilt tube bumpers about 1.5 years ago. I really want to upgrade to get the tire carrier so don't mess up my rear gate.

Decisions .. decisions...

I ordered the front and rear w/tire carrier two weeks ago from 4WDH at the intro price. They are on back order till 3-25. They look nice to me and protect the corners. I also have a Warn 9.5ti to mount. Will I need a mounting plate? I did notice that all the pics show D-ring mounts on the YJ but not on the TJ. Anyone know if the TJ front bumper has D-ring mounts? Also,what do you guys think of the side armor? It matches the bumpers and my wife would like the step. My concern is that it might hang too low!
