Pros Strong, Easy install, Good Material, Universal winch Reciever,
Cons Weight
Recommended yes

Comments: I have the Custom 4x4 fabrication XJ Winch Bumper with tapered corners with the front grill guard and the shackles. This product took 2 people and 3 hours to install. It was a fairly quick install after we figured out how to take the old bumper off. This product has 8 massive bolts that it uses to bold onto your frame and it gives you that feeling of, "This sure as hell ain't going anywhere!" This bumper also fits basically any winch that you can throw at it and it holds onto them tight! This was a great investment and well worth the 3 hours to install it!

Pros more than enough front protection
Cons blocks a little bit of the headlights
Recommended yes

Comments: the bumper i made for my ZJ has 2x4 1/4" steel beams for mounts and mount very similarly to factory tow hooks. and the bumper was custom made for a 74 bronco and was perfect width for the zj, but a little too short. I can hit a deer at 60mph and be fine though, so thats a plus

Comments: Great rear bumper with tire carrier. I used 2x2 steel for the tire carrier portion and 2x4 for the base. Picked up a trailer spindle and bearings from Tractor Supply for the hinge and made a custom latch mechanisim. Hasn't failed yet. I currently have 35" on it with no noises at all.

Pros Solid Steel Construction, Beefy, well built
Cons rusting internally, poor powder coat, old style mounts without supports
Recommended yes

Comments: C4x4 rear xj bumper 97+

I will say that I am disappointed that this bumper is rusting internally quite bad, and im going to deal with that this summer, but even with that its pure beef. YOU DO NOT WANT TO BUMP THE BACK OF MY JEEP CAUSE THIS BUMPER IS NOT MOVING AND WILL DESTROY ANYTHING IT TOUCHES.

Pros mounts a winch, its solid, I made it
Cons I had to make it, made the wife mad. took a while.
Recommended yes

Comments: Fabbed it up using cardboard. Wasn't sure how the radius corners would turn out, but me and some friends made it all work. It uses 1/4" plate steel as the brackets. bolts through 7 holes on the passenger side and 7 on the drivers side. The winch mounting area is also 1/4" steel, as well as its angled supports, but the rest of the bumper is 3/16" steel, it has some sweet angles and nice radius corners. All coated in a smooth satin black finish.
The cost of taking the wife out every 3 nights really didn't make up for the money I saved building my own, but Its the way I want it to look.
