LOL! Thank you for the feedback.
Of course, the referenced post WAS about the cost of fenders and flares, not the bumper. The bumper needs work, which we are diligently working on, but really, comparing our fenders and flares with Genrights is like comparing a Kit Car with a Lexus. Sure you think you're saving money, but how much extra cost is there in the actual install and how long will they really last? On their own site they boast how their Hi-Line kit requires professional installation. Besides, it really just comes down to clearance, and we definitely are the all around winners in that race.
I don't think I would go so far as to say that Genright's stuff is Kit Car, they produce a very nice product. I'm also sorry to tell you but the Genright high clearence fenders give you 3/4" more clearence than your flares and that's info taken from your web site.
I also wouldn't go so far as to say they they boast about professional install, they say

Which I would take as if you can't do the work or pay someone to do it then don't buy them.
Now I will give you that your fenders offer more clereance with less modifictions as the typical high line fender. You also offer them in powder coat which I do not think that any high line fender kit offers. I also think you have a nice product. This thread is about the bumper so I will get back to that.
Like I said before the cost is an issue, also if I was designing the bupmer it would do a few things:
1) Tie into the current fenders to add strenght across the entire front of the jeep.
2) Have the same look and feel, and by that they should use the same size tubing, materials, coating and harware that the rest of your line does. Also they need to have the same look, angle and over all feel. If the rest of the line uses stainless then fine, but if not than loose it, I doubt stainless is a big selling point and that just adds to the cost.
If you can do both of those then I think you will have a real winner on your hands, if you can lower the price. Now when the new bumper comes out if you incorpote my ideas I expect compensation.
And please for the love of all that is holy; kill those gawd awful turn signals. They need to die with fire. Please in the name of eight pound baby Jesus.
