It is a nice bumper. I just wish there was no stinger and instead had a winch guard.

Love you brother and you will always be my hero!

I thought that was a decent episode of extreme. I hadnt seen genrights products before. I wonder if there is any disadvantage to running the alum flares?

I want them to make a rear tire carrier for the JK like they do for the TJ. And get rid of some of the tube work on the front bumper. Imagine trying to change a light bulb, taking the grill off. I'm wondering if you have to take the bumper off. That would be a huge PITA. But I defintiely want their fenders.

The JK was running a rear tire carrier like the TJ. At least that's what I saw watching the show.

It looks like there is plenty of room to pop the grill off from what I've seen in other peoples pictures.

they look similar but the TJ's hinges downward... like the hing is on the bumper and it swings back.

the JK's swings out like a typical tire carrier.

i agree though, i like the TJ design a lot more

The TJ version was way better. I remember seeing it now, and although the swing away design is nice and all i've wanted a swing down version for a while. I had actually contacted gen right over a year ago asking whether I could get the TJ version to fit the JK

Did you notice the Genright guy said the aluminum bumpers were $699 on the JKOTV episode 8, but the website shows $999?? Wowzer!
