I believe that Dr.Holliday has it and likes it a lot. I may be getting it eventually, but I haven't decided yet.

Seems sturdy as hell and it only weights like 39lbs, less weight is good for when you put a heavy *** winch on.

I have to admit. I was really committed to going with the Warn Stubby when the time came, but the price and the fact that it's modular really has me rethinking that decision.

I like the price point of both the hybrids but lack of being able to use a stinger or similar has me also looking at others as well. Also want to be able to "somewhat" match a rear bumper with tire carries cause the guys I ride with that have JK's are having issues with a 35" tire weight on their tailgates and dont see how the rear carrier they have on their site helps a JK at all, because the weight is still on the hinges.

I'm in the same boat man....saw this bumper and really liked it....but have since found out it doesant work with the 2012.
So its back to the Smittybilt Modular, Warn stubby, or JCR stubby.

rc stubby will work with 12s as long as you use the canister relcation kits. rc offers the kit just add 12.95 to the total.
• 2012 models REQUIRE part #1043 below.
Relocates brake pump canister on the frame rail.

from rc's website. i plan on running this bumper in the next week or so
