The LSR bumpers are out of production currently while he is sourcing a new company to do the fab work. I agree it's the best bumper available. If you have to have one now the ARB is a good bumper too, just not as clean looking as LSR

So if I have a 2.5" lift on my WJ and an LSR bumper, can i run 32" Rubicons without tearing off my washer bottle and rubbing or stuff like that?

Seriously, how many company names will Kennesaw Mountain Accessories go through. It seems like there is a new name each year. They are known for poor fitment, Require welding of the bumper itself (incomplete products), slow shipping time... That said, it is a good price for a fairly decent looking bumper. Hopefully things have improved, and the company is able to deliver products more effectively.

BUT...
6 posts and you registered in 2008...You have raised suspicion. My guess is you work for Blue Lake, Kennesaw, or whatever the company is calling themselves these days.

Dude, just started looking at bumpers for my WJ this week, The only ulterior motive I have is I live maybe 45 minutes from their shop and can save the $150 freight fee by picking up from them direct.

By all means, recommend and buy whatever you like...

Thanks for posting back to clarify, it just sounded like a plug. It is always good when vendors post as long as they ID themselves.

The bumpers look good, especially the f/r together. From what I have seen others post though, I would take your tools, arrive early in the day, and test fit while there.

After splitting the top of my front fascia with a 2 mph impact I decided to look for something stronger that will last. The bumper does look good, but I didn't know about their past history.
Still, to save the freight fee it might be worth a little extra hassle. I would be a complete newbie on this upgrade, but I can turn a bolt and drill a hole, so maybe it's do-able on my end...
