front/rear bumpers

Im interested in swapping out my stock front and rear bumpers for a set of new ones. What are you guys running these days? Whats out there that is strong, has tow hooks, winch capable(for a future upgrade), and just plain ole looks good. Thanks

Front bumber ? I threw on an ARB Bullbar on my TJ and it looks really nice. I also like it because it offers a lot of frontend protection, when a lot of models don't. There are some that think it probably is too heavy, but that is far from the truth, it actually is really light (I believe 60+ pounds). It offers a solid spot to hold a winch, and also has two good shackle mounting points. As well, there are two light tabs already pre fabed into the bumper. It's really nice, I'm glad I put one on!

JeepGallery doesn't have any pictures of the FABTECH front bumper...so here is a pic of mine:



I love the ARB bumper, but it was way too expensive as well as quite heavy...even without a winch on it. The FABTECH doesn't have tow hooks, but it does come with 2 D-Ring shackles. The bumper is also compatible with certain winch plates.

Does anyone have any of the Jeeperman bumpers? Front or Rear look really awesome. Does anyone have any feedback on their products?

Strong, light, radiator hoop, and stays out of the way.
Also allows a winch mounting point a couple of inches lower than most.













Here's why we need one that doesn't get in the way

Custom... I may end up making it into a shorty and will be adding a small hoop and maybe just maybe a stinger to it. It is made out of 1/4" rectangle tube.

here's a pic of my LoD shorty (44") front bumper with nose guard




best part, it only costs $129 for either a standard (54") or shorty bumper and the nose guard is a bolt on addition and sells for only $89.

Does that radiator guard have any bracing, or is it simply the tube bolted to the bumper. Can't see for sure from any of the photos.
