I will be buying some type of front end armor, for my WK, in two weeks. I am still undecided as to what I want. I don't really like the matrix or the keystone, but especially since they're both very close to the cost of the crawl offroad WK bumper.
My only hold back on the CO bumper is the lack of protection for the bottom area. A lot seems to hang down below the bumper with that design, are there options to add a slotted plate to cover the radiator/washer bottle that anybody has came up with? I'm not worried about hitting stuff on a trail, since my jeep is mostly a PP, but I drive in an area with lots of critters and deer. That's what i'm most concerned with in regards to the bottom of the radiator and washer bottle.
And i've yet again talked myself out of the matrix, I don't feel that it's worth the cost versus a whole bumper when I don't see any upside to decent front end protection. ARB bumper is basically out of the question, too expensive for my needs and it's just a big ugly SOB. If I could find a used one, then i'd consider it.
