Anybody have this e-Autogrilles bumper?

Anybody have this e-Autogrilles bumper? I know several people have bought it by trolling through their feedback, but I'll be damn if it can find a pic of it actually mounted on a JK.



Thx

True. But when you don't get paid much, you get what you can. Worst case scenerio; I'll modify it to what I want.

Darkhorse, I'll be looking for the pics.

Patiently waiting...two days to process and ship....now in transit. Six days from Cali to NY via Fedex ground. Patience is not always my strong suit. :-)

Looks exactly like the Smittybilt bumper for TJ’s and probably is the same one. Since Smittybilt outsources to China E-Autogrilles probably bought the same design. How many Smitty’s are out there and work?? Tons. it is formed steel and mounting bolts, what can go wrong? Especially if it's identical to one another company sells.

Sounds just like everything else I've read about these bumpers.

My bumper finally arrived. I have to say that I'm pretty happy with the quality of it. The fit and finish seem to be really good. Here's a few pic of it. Tomorrow I'll try to post a few pics of it on my Jeep.

I planned on posting some pics of it mounted but I started making a fog light mount that bolts to where the fairlead would bolt. When I finished and went outside it was already dark. I'll definitely get some pics up tommorow though. Here some more of the bumper before mounted.







A bit off topic but here the fog light mount.

When I bought mine they were listed at $299 and marked down to $269.99. I figured it was just a sales gimick and they were always that price. I guess not.

From what I am getting from the e-mails I got from them...they are raising the prices because they are out of inventory I am just guessing in an attempt that no one buys them but sees that these bumpers are available. Anyways I just installed mine last night:

You cant make that kind of a bold statement and not have anything to back it up...

I think it would be fine for recovery. I don't have any issues with it, and I've seen it first hand. When it comes time to replace the rear I'll probably buy it from them. I'm completely satisfied with the quality and fit of this one.
