Body Armor High Clearance Front Bumper

Couldn't find this bumper on the reviews section so I figure I'll ask here....Anybody have or know somebody with the Body Armor front bumper for the JK? Looks solid and for $400, seems like a pretty good deal

Body Armor JK-19531 - Body Armor Front High Clearance Bumper in Textured Black for 07-10 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec

Thoughts??

I've seen other Body Armor products, not that one specifically. They do seem to be a little less well built than some of the other brands, but they are also a bit more affordable.

No dice on the bumper. I'm not an experienced Ebay-er, and was outbid by 5$ in the last min. Went for $315...not a bad deal


I've been looking at the Smittybilt SRC front bumpers and they're really growing on me. I'll have to look around and see if I can find a deal somewhere on one.

I must respectfully disagree. I have this bumper and it is absolutely top notch fit and finish. I yanked my brothers X out of a ravine (and I mean YANKED) with the d rings on it, without a hitch. I got mine through 4wheelparts at the show price at the truck and jeep show they put on. They still have one show left this year in Orlando, and I would try to call them and see if they will cut you the show price. I paid $350 for mine. They have been pretty good to me about working on prices. Also the Body Armor guys were super nice at the show. I almost bought the Smittybilt one that is similar but I'm glad I got the BA one because it's still small but it has just enough space on top to step.

Also nothing against quadratec, they in fact may do the same price. I have successfully negotiated with them on things too.

In my opinion, that's an awesome looking bumper!


So to anyone here who has this bumper, is it well built, strong and solid? Thickness of steel? Why is it only 400 bucks? That's the only thing that shy's me away from it. I am leary that the low price may mean they cut major corners in something or other, but not sure. I've been looking around the wed, but hardly any reviews on this bumper that I can find.
