Aftermarket WJ Bumper Options

So a few weeks back someone backed into the front bumper on my wifes jeep wj. We just got approved to get it fixed and the bill is $550. The shop is willing to let us put that money toward an aftermarket bumper of our choice so that's where I need help. What are some options so I can show my wife?

She loved the Iceland bumper but of course that's a bust. I heard good things about a company named LSR? But from what I can tell they currently aren't in production?

I was going to recommend the LSR incline bumper, but like you said I'm not sure if they are in business still.

Good options so far. Keep them coming!

Side thought. Does anyone make a non winch bumper? I don't see a need to have the nose stick out that far since it will most likely never have a winch in it.

Not sure if you have seen this one yet, but it is a non winch option.

Thanks, I like that styling. I guess im confused. I thought behind the factory bumper was probably some foam and then a cross member right under the radiator. If that's so then why do these bumpers all stick out like a fat lip? Why no flat bumpers for maximum approach angle? I assume im missing something so school me.

Also the rear bumper on that site looks like Wills, is that correct?

Greg designed the front bumper while working at Lone Star Racing (LSR). I wheeled with him on 2011 in Moab, cool guy. Last I heard from him, he was going to move production to another location.

There are a few companies that sell the ProtoFab rear bumper. I bought mine directly from the manufacturer.

The bumpers all stick out so far and not flat because the front of a WJ is rounded. At least that is what I was told..

If I was to make my own, I would remove the center section between the rails and replace it with a winch plate. This would allow you to not have such a protruding bumper. Corbin was going to do this, not sure how far along he is with his plans.
