Aspen Creek's prototype bumper was revealed... A lot of mix feelings but I like it.

If they rounded off/softened some of the lines I'd go for it. Not feeling the square stinger at all but I think stingers are ridiculous anyway.

I have been thinking about putting some washers on top of the belly skid plate to lower it some to solve the vibrating issue I have. Any opinions on this ?

Incorporate some rubber washers above and below the plate to isolate it from the frame.

I don't know... It has a lot of potential. I think if the curves were smoothed out, it would make a big difference. The bottom of it looks on point. I don't think it's as bad as everyone's dogging them on Facebook about. You have companies like these that try to make stuff not commonly produced, and all they receive is negative feedback. And we wonder why we don't have a big aftermarket support. Whoever is on Facebook should comment on the pictures and give them some more positive comments.

I'm on the fence with this bumper too, definitely needs to be smoothed out. I'm waiting for the finished product to make a decision.

Oh yeah, I'd take that stinger in a second. Jeep would look like a beast in someone's rear view mirror.

Looks like they already pulled it down off of FB. Lots of morons hating on them, I don't blame them. These will be the same guys whining that no one makes aftermarket bumpers too, guaranteed.

So annoying. I wouldn't even think about redesigning it if I were them.

I just said I was disappointed with it. I though their original design was sweet. Not necessarily worth the price tag I wanted to pay and unfortunately that's why they were discontinued.

That thing is hideous, especially the stinger...the whole thing needs smoothed out and then it could be sweet...I'm surprised they would even release that pic in that condition
