Hello, recently i smashed my front bumper and fender flare in on the drivers side. I eventually wanted to replace it with a nice bumper winch setup down the road. I was wondering what suggestions you guys might have, i would like it to have full frontal protection with a bull bar and capable of handling a winch down the road. I have a completely stock TJ, and don't plan on lifting it for awhile. Will weight be an issue for me, if i was to go with an arb or similar bumper? Figured i would ask the pro's before pulling the trigger. Thanks guys
Eautogrilles.com. Best product for the money hands down. Just swapped my poison spider front and rear for them. Great product!
I wouldn't say best product hands down. I like mine, but the coating sucks. I received my stinger bumper in decent shape though. Lacking in their description of including a winch plate. I went to harbor freight and bought a universal one and trimmed it up to fit.
But for the money its a decent bumper and mine weighed around 75 pounds according to fed ex. They ship pretty fast too.
Right now using it for mall crawling. After i finish school it will be lifted and upgraded. Looking to make the right decision now in order to avoid having to re-buy a bumper in the future. I like the body armor design, but cannot lift it now. I like the bull bar with light tabs, would probably do some kc's right in the middle and a winch eventually. Anybody run a winch on a stock tj, or is it just too much weight?
people throw winches on stock TJ [bumpers] all the time... Personally, if your mall crawlin right now, I would wait on the winch.
Agree. If still in school.... stay w/ stock for now. If needing another bumper.... go to junk yards.
But you can spruce it up a bit. Remove the milk jugs and the bumpers, angle cut the ends to your choice of length and repaint.
Gives it an off-road look ..... see mine below.
Add a winch if you want but why carry extra weight till you start off roading? I just bolted on an inexpensive light bar.
