Rear Bumper HELP!

Saturday, I had a collision with a pole and I must change my rear bumper.
For my insurance, I have changed for Oem or valuable.
What do you think of this bumper.

http://www.jeep4x4center.com/jeep-bu...umber=11571.10

Are this good or not?
I already have a hitch with a shackle.

Do you have another suggestion in the same price range?

Thank you
Xander

Dude... Are you a leprachaun Just curious about the way you worded that. All in good fun man.

Now, about your question, IMO the one you posted looks better than the other two to me... I think it looks nicer because it covers up the entire area on the rear body rather then leaving spaces... The other two just look unfinished to me.... Have you thought about this bumper?http://www.quadratec.com/products/12148_200.htm

that was kinda funny

but anyway, it depends on what you need. ive never liked the tube bumpers, but i think the RR looks better than the other two below it. also, do you need a tire carrier or no. im guessing no since youre replacing the stocker, but it could be something to consider if you plan on getting bigger tires soon.

i just dont like the RR tube bumpers because from what ive read they dont hold up worth a damn if impacted. i could be wrong though.

Life's hard. It's harder if you're stupid.
