What is the difference between these two popular Frame-Built Bumper configurations? One weighs in at 40 lbs, and one is only 23 lbs.



The question for you is... how?

How possible is it to have the stubby bumper with it running up along the grill and up under the fender. This would help protect the grill and fender but leave the tire clear to get on an obstacle
I like the idea of the bumper being as narrow as possible. I planned on cutting my stock bumper down. I like being able to get my tire on an obstacle without out anything I the way but what concerns me is how vulnerable it makes my fender. I wouldn’t want a stinger sticking out any further than the bumper. Often for uphill pulls I will situate myself behind and up against a tree to keep myself anchored. Having a stinger sticking out would be in the way. I have armor on my jeep but never seen a front bumper worth buying. Seem they are all too big. If I want a stubby bumper I could just cut down the stock bumper or even remove it. By adding minimal but effective grill and fender protection that would be of value to me. As far as material, wouldn’t have to be aluminum and as far as finish don’t. Even with powder coating I will have to touch it up with a rattle can. Don’t need to waste money on powder coating.

How possible is it to have the stubby bumper head up along the grill and up under the fender. This would help protect the grill and fender but leave the tire clear to get on an obstacle. Lines show the bumper.

________OO _________ bumper is just below fenders

Sorry if this an obvious question but does a winch bolt DIRECTLY to the bumper? Do I need a winch plate? Is it also possible to get the bolts matte or powdercoated so they're not all shiny? I love the bumper but not the "WWII airplane wing rivet thing" going on. I've got a black jeep and want very little shiny things on it.

really nice work!!!

One thing I've learned in this industry... there are no obvious questions!

Yes, the base of the bumper is pre-drilled and designed to fit most winches.

As for the bolts, we are now offering Black Zinc Grade 8 Bolts as a standard with the Black Frame-Built Base. It will take a few days to get the website updated as well as the pics to show how the black bolts look, and we are about a week out on delivery of them, but you can order any bumper now and we will make sure you have the black bolts if you want them.
