Wj KMA/TAG Bumper Picture Request

I've been looking at the KMA/TAG bumpers and I can't find any decent pictures of them. I'm looking for pictures of all the styles at different angles. I really want to see how far the front bumper overhangs and the difference between the winch and non-winch models.

Do yourself a favor and search for them on here and google. There are a lot of threads on how horrible their customer service is. The end product seems to be okay, but itll be months and months of lies and deception before you actually get it.

Yeah he just got them. They took over 3 months and are apparently quite poorly made. Nice welds but poor design. Definitely worth reading the thread posted above. Start to finish.

I'm sorry, but I've gotta say it...

Please don't ruin that beautiful Overland with those bumpers... It looks so good without all that garbage on there.

if you wan a bumper save your money and get an ARB







i think that you will be happy with it i know that i have.

heck mine saved my jeep when someone decided to try and cut me off one morning i ended up clipping them in there rear pass side 1/4 the ARB saved me at least 2000 if not more in damages.



this is all the damage i had the other guy had to get towed away

I really don't like the overhang on all of the after market bumpers.

My favorite bumper is the applehill 4x4 it fit tight up to the jeep doesn't overhang if you don't want a winch I'd say go for that one, but ah4x4 wants like 1300 to build the bumper, which is way over priced for what it is, I just printed pics of it and sent them to fab shops in my area and found a place to build it for around 400-500 and that's adding light tabs and d-rings to it

i just got an arb for mine, havent installed it yet though as im in the process of rebuilding my winch. But from what ive read, what ive seen, and the quality of the bumper i have sitting in the garage, its awesome. I only see 2 downfalls of it though and they are both easily taken care of. First being that the recovery points are very low (my plan is to weld in some d-ring mounts to the front), second it sticks out a little far into the fender on the side. If you were to trim your fenders, you will have to cut the bumper down too.

You won't be disappointed. I trimmed the **** out of mine. Functions a lot better, and looks seamless with my chopped fenders.
