Off road animal?

Any experience with these parts?

My front lower fascia is all trashed and there are not many options for front bumpers.

This set up is light weight and looks good, I know it will not be as solid as a complete bumper but I do like the weight savings, plus it is definitely better than new plastic.

I "off" road to hunt/fish not just to go off road, my mostly stock 13 with off road adventure pkg. has been quite capable for what I need.

Only upgrades are sahara take offs, so 32 inch tires and Billsteins that too out the rake.

I like the look of it. I'd be tempted but have already invested in the Chief lower front guard. There is that option, and Chief is apparently working on something to improve the look if you leave the fascia off.

I think it was chief that I saw they had some stuff in the works, bumper maybe.

Off road animal has a few videos on youtube wheeling a wk2 and putiing all of their acc. on as well.

Looks like a quality product.

I pulled the trigger on the front bumper and bash plate a few weeks ago. They ship in batches, so itís due in Feb. Iím really excited about the looks & protection, plus their customer service has been outstanding.

I looked at the Chief bumper, but they werenít able to provide a release date or ship date. I also like the looks of the ORA bumper better. It looks more aggressive while still fitting the body design.

Update when you get everything, what did everything cost you?

Thanks

My wife is 5 foot nothing so I had the Mopar Side Steps on my Ď16 Limited.

I purchased my Ď19 HA with a new set as part of the deal but they would not fit due to the flared front quarter; the rear had clearance.

I really like the Chief Trek Eleven Rock Rails with the step. However the ORA one looks pretty nice too, ie a little less extrusive, and is about 50% less.

Awaiting your reviews and warmer weather.

I’ll definitely keep y’all updated. It was around $1500 all together. I didn’t have their tow hooks, which are required for install, plus I have the ACC and ordered the shroud for that. They include shipping in the price, as well, so I didn’t think that was too extremely high.

I received an email from the manager thanking me and offering me some swag while I waited on the bumper, which was cool.

I have the Mopar rock rails, so I haven’t really looked at anyone else’s. I’m sure I’ll need a new pair at some point, though. ��

I was happy with the prices of the ORA stuff. Not that Chief isn’t great, but they’re higher on some of their stuff. I also liked their lower guard, but hated the unfinished look w/o the front valance.

Hopefully the arrival of the bumper will match up to some of our warmer TX winter so I can get it installed ASAP.

Excited to hear your thoughts on the products, quality, and ease of install once you get them. I'm going to need a few items at some point and would love to see ORA comparison before deciding.

Good on you for going for it and happy to hear their customer service is legit already.
