How well do the front hoops actually protect? I had a bolt on light hoop/winch guard that bent back pretty good into my winch. Shattered 2 lights, cracked my winch housing, and bent my grille a bit.

Have you done any testing to see what kind of impacts that front stinger/winch guard can actually take? Just curious.

Just wanted to share this post from one of our first bumper customers... he posted it on our original bumper post referenced above....

I am really happy with the way it came out and I just want to say thanks to Matson and Doug over at MetalCloak for all the help.
This is Ace's Build (as seen on our website HERE) which is the stainless steel frame-built base with our infinity scratch assimilating finish, crawler caps, mid stinger, T6 aluminum fairlead and T6 aluminum shackle mounts.

That Ace's build in the pic above looks fantastic Matson. I picked up a used front bumper and already installed it on my TJ project because I didn't want to dump any more dough into it, but the more I look at that picture, the more I think I might just have to step up. Fantastic job.

Here is our YJ with the Arched Tube Fender and our Frame-Built Bumper. I plan on adding the stinger to it and will re-post pics when I finish that mod.

I kind of liked the first one, but I also like the winch guard with this newer style.

Btw, I know I've asked before, but When in the hell are you going to make a rear bumper w/ swing out tire carrier? I'll be your first damned customer!

LOL! Its coming! We just don't want to come out with the same old stuff. R&D has some interesting tricks up their sleeves when it comes to the rear bumper. I looking forward to seeing what innovations they bring.

You guys have some really neat looking products. What sticks out most to me is the amount of time you put into trying to satisfy customers and get them involved in design. Keep it up!

I found this thread while researching tube fenders.

Firstly, I definitely appreciate a company that can take their customer's input (no matter the degree of flaming) in stride, then come out with something like this. You guys sure have Teflon skin.

Second, I like the idea of the modular bumper. There are many of us who can't drop the cash for a winch, bumper and stinger all at once. This system will let a customer build their bumper as their aftermarket parts and wheeling styles change.

All in all, I am impressed with your company.
