Hanson bumper retailers...

I have pretty much decided that I like the look of both the Rubicon 60 and 52 model for the front of my Jeep. Also found out that they have the rear tire swingout like the LOD. Just wondering if there are any vendors that come to mind where I can get a decent deal on one.

I dont know whether I want the 60 or 52 at this point in time, nor do I know if I like the Hanson rear over the LOD unit, which I have seen in person and I like, alot.

If anybody has any input I would greatly appreciate it.

I ordered my 52" Hanson from 4wd Hardware. Had it less than a week after I placed the order. The Hanson and Jeeperman rears are much better than the LOD. The LOD is not bad just not in the league of the other 2.

I debated over all of the above. As for the 52" I liked the looks better and took into consideration that in the future I'll likely go with tube fenders and that would not look right with the 60". For the rear I liked the look better and the latch and hinge setup better. Both makes are top quality items. IMO you can't go wrong with any of either companies products

Do you remember any good comparison pictures for the 60 and 52 Hanson fronts? I just did a search and could not find any decent "comparable" shots. Also with the Jeeperman, could not find any nice close up detail shots, I have seen the LOD in person so I would be able to compare that.

Thanks

I have the 60, don't have pics right now. I have additional down tubes, but the 60 protects the fenders. They suck up pretty high so they dont hang low, but i can definately agree it would look funny with tube fenders. If you do not plan on going to tube fenders the 60 is a good choice in also protecting your fenders.

I orderd mine in jan, it took 6 weeks(christmas rush i guess.)

What kind of detail shots do you want of the Jeeperman rear? I have it and am willing to oblige.

I like the idea of having more protection for the fenders of the Jeep. What exactly are the tube fenders?

And man, that Jeeprman is clean. I am going to be picking that up for sure. About how much is this front and rear setup going to make my suspension sag? Just wondering if I should do them now, or when I do my 3.5RE lift and make sure to ask around what spacers I am going to need to make it sit right with the additional weight

The testamonials of the quality is what drew me to Jeeperman. There was one story in particular where a guy had an LOD carrier for a few years but had to get rid of it due to rust and rattling, he went with Jeeperman. I figure if I'm going to spend that much money, spend it once. After seeing the Jeeperman, I believe this will be the last bumper I buy for my Jeep.

Their customer service is also top notch. They are very responsive to emails and answer any questions thoroughly. Good communication goes a long way in my book.
