I have been bumper shopping since I bought the Jeep. This is the longest I have ever left a truck stock! I have had the JK for a year and 4 months. It has not been the greatest year in the motorcycle industry and I am lucky to have even bought a new Jeep at all with the decrease in bike sales.
I know 500 is not much to spend on a bumper, and the reason I asked is I was hopping smeone with a used bumper, or a vendor with a scratch and dent or otherwise discounted bumper may speak up with "hey, I'll sell this for 500"
I think what I am going to get is the Poly Performance Bumper with the Rubicon skid plate. I will add the KOH or prerunner guard when I can afford to. I like the Poly because it looks light and I assume it is pretty light, and that the winch mount is an add on. On my last truck (95 Rover) I had a front winch. More ofen I needed to be pulled back out of something, not over it. So I am thinking on the JK that I would just have a rear winch. The on road handleing will be bettter with out another 100 pounds out front, and it will be easier to get the suspension right for the type of stuff I use the Jeep for. I have also used my winch to load busted up bikes into the trailer, with a rear winch, I can just drag the bike out of the ditch and into my trailer.
