There's probably umptying gazillion threads, but lack of time and 12 kbps dialup modem really tests my patience with computers in doing internet catelogue searches..
I've tried to order the SRC Rockcrawler front bumper but have become really frustrated and entirely lost patience after waiting for my order for 2 months.
So w/ that said, wanted to ask you boys what other bumpers out there have relatively the same design and features such as the 4 light tabs, 2 d-ring shackle points and good coverage of the front side of the jeep w/ a winch.
I know of the Fabtech one, but don't really fancy the size, but not sure, still considering it.
The FourReal one looked mighty interesting, but the price made its luster diminish to dim glow.
So yea, i have to jet, it'd be a lot of help, can maybe finally mount my winch to something serious aside the stockbumper...thanks in advance!
War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

You could get a Jeeprman with one of their two style light hoops. Jeeperman bumpers have an integrated winch mount. Their light hoops also come with provisions mount additional lighting. There two sizes 54" and 46". I'm running the 54". Well it doesn't look like the SRC bumper it is a great bumper and with the addition of their light bars looks really sharp.
Great site to read about and review Jeep related products.
OMG NOT THE ROAD ARMOR BUMPER....... RUNS AWAY just before it gets posted I would like to have this as a preemptive strike
LMAO, the same thing I thought. Whats worse is the poor guy is on dial up.
Akula47 monitor this thread, if you see a guy named Oman post don't even bother opening it back up. there will be many pictures of an ugly, overpriced bumper with some really crappy welds on it. it will just kill your connection until all the pictures load.
As for your original question, I side with Marine. JEEPERMAN bumpers are nice.
I have a modified Warrior rock bumper...but a wheelin' friend of mine has the Toys by Troy you might consider checking out. They are pretty tough, and offer some better stuff than the SRC bumper you originally were going to get.
It's a little different than many of the other suggestions, but the ARB bull bars offer a lot of coverage. This was one of the biggest factors in my decision b/c it is my DD and I figure that getting hit in one of the front corners by another vehicle would tear up more of the Jeep with a bumper that doesnt extend as far out.
They only have two light tabs, though, and they are costly (I got an insurance settlement from a drunk driver that hit my rear bumper (so i bought a new front bumper!)).
