Name that front/rear bumper

Fell in love with this jeep in Southport, NC. Tried looking at the bumpers but didnt' see any markings.

Can anyone help out? I think I'm convinced in the AEV wheels for my black jku as well!

Thanks!

I wouldn't trust that rear bumper. Other manufacturers use a heavy duty spindle that does not require that half assed bracket assembly they used there. It looks like an after thought. "Oh our spindle isn't strong enough." "Oh here, just bolt this strap on there. that'll hold'er."

It looks like they are using a spindle with brass bushings rather than roller bearings. They actually (in my opinion) did the right thing by reinforcing it. Without that, those type of bushings seem to wear out quickly and end up sagging. Not my style, but a good looking bumper.

I like to build stuff. Want to know what I build, you can google it HERE

That's kind of my point. Why did they not use a stronger roller bearing? It's MUCH cheaper than the Poison Spyder or the AEV so I'm guessing it was just to break into a lower price bracket. Maybe it they made an option to get the roller would be a nice idea.

The bumper itself is bad *** looking.
