Who has changed bumpers more then once?

How many of you have swapped your aftermarket bumpers for a different set down the road? I don't mean the stock plastic ones for aftermarket, but one aftermarket set for another.

I made my front and rear bumpers from scratch, and then changed 'em each a couple times. Does that count?

Are you looking to justify changing a bumper out?

If you wanna' do it, go for it!

I went from a genright front and rear to just a minimalist winch plate with EVO D ring tabs up front and no bumper in the rear - well an aluminum EVO fascia if you count that.

I think even the forum member who picked up my genright front bumper has since swapped it out.

The rear genright went to a forum member as well.

Went straight to the BFH in the front, so now the options are pretty limited there... Good thing that I love it. But, currently have a Smittybilt Atlas rear with carrier that is probably going to be sold next year and swapped for something lighter and smaller.

Owned my Jeep four years and I'm on my fourth aftermarket bumper.

Running the Swagg bumper now. It may stick around a while. I just had a fresh coat of powder baked on it

Started with AEV Gen 1 because I got a great deal on it. Two years later I got a deal on the ARB that I really wanted. 176,000 miles and rolling strong.

Yep, This is true. I went from your old Genright to a PSC.

On a side note I'm surprised you haven't seen it around as the guy I sold it to lives out by you. (San Ramon)

On the rear, i started with the Orfab tire carrier, then went to Red Rock fab, and eventually I just built my own.
The front I went with the Rugged Ridge to Poison Spider stinger.
Might change the front again some time.
