what do you guys think?

Hey guys I'm kinda on a budget, but I was looking at body armor front bumpers and skid plate. What do you guys think? I've got a lot of deer where I live and want that front full coverage.

Thanks for your help

Are you looking for recommendations?

If so, buy steel. Steel is great for four footer encounters.

If your are worried about Deer - Bumpers first.

Hell... I say Bumpers first either way.

need to be more clear

I'm sorry guys, yes I want the protection, but I wanted to know what you all thought of body armor as a company and they if make a good product. They look good I think. But will they stand up and how's thier customer service. I'm getting just the front bumper.



Thanks

this is the bumper in question.

looks nice and it was one of my choices when buying a bumper.
i ended up going with the rampage front bumper though, great deal at 4wheel parts.


its strong enough to take out a tree and total a crown vic at speeds less than 5 mph. with out a scratch on her. i love her!
difference in the hoops is the body armor is bolt on and the rampage is fully welded and i must say its stout and everything is welded nicely

If you're looking for a good bumper in our area, kchusky just put up his custom front bumper for sale (in your other thread). That thing is one of the most high-quality things I've seen on a Jeep.

If anything, at least take a look at it in person before you buy anything else.
