Bull bar options

I've looked around on google to only find crappy ebay dealers selling poorly made bull bars for the lib.

Could someone point me in the direction of some quality bull bars?

Much appreciated

Okay.. my fault.

Called a few local stores, found westin, trail fx and aries bars for sale locally.

I believe the trail fx are the only ones that come with clips for lights.

Does anyone have any of these 3 installed on a 2012 lib? Any pictures?

If its just a bar/guard you want jeepinbyal.com has one for a kj that looks like it might work for a kk.
There's also the option to go to a full steel bumper but shipping to ontario might be pricey.

You really need to stop posting photos of your bumper creations, my will power is getting weaker everytime I see one. My wallet starts to twitch and then I get the itch.
I know you have done two different front bumper designs. And you post photos of each....just for looking at of course...I hope.

Have one sitting here waiting for a KK to test fit it on for JBA.
Just need for 30 minutes or so then we'll all know
I know it'll bolt up fine already, just have to see what may need to be cut and where it will sit

AttheHelm,

I love your bumper, I just wish it wasn't quite so narrow at the outer ends. I've been seriously considering ordering one from you this summer, but I'd like to keep the stock side turn lights installed (into the new bumper, of course).

I know that this is how MtnLuvr's bumper is:



However, it looks like he has had some life changes that preclude his ability to actually built his bumper for sale. That's understandable, we all go through that stuff. But for those of us that would like something similar to that there really isn't anything available. Your bumper is close, but is a bit too "hard core" for my tastes, even though I do think it is an awesome bumper.

Have you considered a second model with slightly less side clearance and a spot for the side lights, or are you sticking with the one model for now?

That's right, You drive a KJ don't you? Just waiting for a friend to bring one by?

EDIT: Too bad I don't live closer (I'm in Western New York, in the Buffalo/Niagara Falls area) Otherwise I'd volunteer my KK to test it out on. I don't suppose you could post some pics? (Don't know if you have to keep it secret or not)

I would also like to know when you get to try this out, Im wanting a bullbar type smaller bumper that has the d rings on it, but not the full heavy type pictured above.
