Many people here will talk $#!+ about SmittyBilt, but for the price it's hard to complain.

I've had their front & rear bumpers, and side-steps / sliders for over 5 years and they've taken a lot of abuse and held up well.

You get what you pay for, so you have to go into it knowing that they're not perfect. But it was all I could afford when I started modifying my Jeep, and the bang-for-the-buck is pretty good.

Note: I had to modify the latch on my SmittyBilt tire carrier, as the one it came with was garbage and would open on the highway. But that's the only issue I've had.

Find the guy who sells bumpers on craigslist. Dirtworx. Hell work with you to make something that suited your needs I think. Both felt and rear

I don't know if you could fit an axe and a shovel with a winch on the front bumper. I can't imagine where you could put a cubby for those. Looking forward to seeing how that comes out as well as the prices Arts guy has

It want it like a mix between the engine where you can completely nicely sleep on the bumper, it's like a huge lip, and the medium rescue, usually a ford 350"hd diesel or something like that, with winch. I thing it could be reinforced with round steel tubes and leave some room in middle and lockable storage for my ax and shovel.

I thing it can be done, he s gonna be my hottie.....

For me, it's not entirely about quality of the product. It's more about outsourcing to China and other countries that is my problem. I know all to well what outsourcing jobs does, alot of my friends have had to move their families to other countries just to keep working because companies chase tax rebates, cheap labor, or other reasons to take work elsewhere. I'll gladly pay more for an item to keep jobs and products made here in the US.

Support local companies! Don't buy from China or other outsource countries Sometimes you can't help it, there's no other option but to buy foreign made products. But when ever you can, try to buy local. Not sure if an item is manufactured here in the US? Call them, and ask!

Look into metalcloak bumpers. You build it however you want with tons of options (lightbars, tow points, winch plates, various end caps, stingers etc). You can build a pretty basic Setup for pretty cheap, mine has quite a few add ons and i think I paid less than $600. And like buck said, made here locally.
