Stubby bumper vs. full length bumper??

What are the pros and cons of each, assuming the stock fenders are kept?

longer would prevent fender damage.
shorter helps with approach angles. but what damage could be done if there was an impact directly to one of the front tires?

just curious.

What do you mean exactly, like if the jeep slid slightly off a line and the tire made direct contact with a tree stump or rock? Could possibly damage the knuckle, axle, possible to rip a mount off the frame or axle if enough force was applied.

I build a set of front and back bumpers with structural steel tubing and made them full length. Keeps the brush down from hitting fenders and when sliding into trees they do not bend keeping the damage to a shaker can of paint for the bumpers. It is more a personal thing.

I like the looks of the shorter bumpers, but I like the added coverage and protection of full length bumpers.
