Thanks for the interest guys!
I realized in my original post I didn’t mention a price point. These will be sold for the same price as our current Pre-Runner Model - $599.95 + shipping.
I’d like to respond to a few comments below:
If I could make a couple suggestions though...It would be nice to have that wall thats behind the winch area in front of the winch instead. That way the winch could sit back farther, allowing the bumper to be shallower and you could use the wall to mount the fairlead too, and maybe some aftermarket lights
Right now the winch plate/fairlead holder looks like an after thought IMO
The wall behind the bumper is there to keep a nice flush fit against the grille. If we were to eliminate that, there would be a rather large, ugly gap between the bumper and grille. Furthermore there’s really no room to move the winch farther back, it’s pretty tight to the grille already.
The reason the fair lead mount is not welded to the bumper, is so the bumper doesn’t look too out of place if used without a winch. A customer may use the winch mounting bolts to mount a set of lights if their not using the winch mount, and it should look pretty good (we don’t have pictures of anyone who’s done this yet).
I like it a lot...3 conditions for me to consider...1-Has to be direct bolt on. 2-No winch option since I have no need for a winch. 3-Price...$400 range is OK, but when bumpers start getting in the $700+ range, I look the other way...absolutely ridiculous to come up with a bumper price, which in some cases is even 4 figures. Oh...before I forget, the cutouts for fog lamps should come standard with high quality reflectors for those who have JK's without fogs, or do not intend to install same. Looks like you have a winner.
The bumper certainly is a direct bolt on, and the winch mount is modular, however there’s no way we’d be able to sell this for $400 without taking production overseas which we’re not willing to do. We’re proud to say our products are made in the USA.
As I mentioned above we have set pricing at $599.95 + shipping, and the optional Blocker Beam Skid Plate runs an additional $75. We feel that’s very competitively priced.
On the same note, we can’t include lights without further raising the price of the bumper. We have a Mopar account with pretty good discounts and can certainly get the stock JK Fog Lights for those who don’t have the lights already. I’m really pretty happy with the performance of the stock fogs. If anyone is interested in purchasing lights with the bumper, please contact me and I’ll be glad to check into this further to see what we can resell those for.
Thanks again for the interest guys!
