Front Bumper Suggestions

Well I have been debating what will be my first mod on my JK for the past week or so, and well, last night someone else decided to make up my mind for me by backing into my front bumper. I can't say I was all that pissed since it solved a problem, but anyway...

I am wanting a full width front bumper w/winch mount and hoop. No tube bumpers and black in color. Prefferably $600 or less.

I really like the Rugged Ridge XHD bumpers, but they are about $100 more than what I would like to spend. The Smittybilt XRC bumpers look pretty good and in my price range. Anyone else have the XRC?

I am open to other suggestions as well, so throw them out. Pics would be great too.

As far as my JK, it's an '07 2dr silver hard top Sahara if that makes any difference in your recommendations.

Thanks guys

Another great front bumper is the Mopar one. Unlike the earlier version this latest one includes the fog light cut-outs. The winch sits low between the frame rails and has a hoop. I like the looks of them and have, oops, had one on my Jeep. The only thing that I donít like is that they wonít fit the PowerPlant if thatís what you want to use. Also the price is right. Last time I check they were around $500 straight from the dealer. No need to get it from the after market. That was several months ago though.

+1 on the Mopar Bumper.

You may be able to find it cheaper from a Dealer on Ebay, or

Thanks guys...$500 would be great for that bumper! I have a feeling it is probably more than that now, but I will see what I can find.

Bump once for any other suggestions

Very happy with the RR XHD. Agreed its pricey, but I love the look and the storage ends.
