Bumper advice

Hey guys, I'm currently in the market for upgrading to a front winch bumper and most likely a new rear as well. I like stubby's but I am open to suggestions so I figured I would see what advice people have. I know there area a range of prices but I don't want to break the bank getting the bumpers so I was hoping to hear some recommendations on some good bumpers that are reasonably priced. And please feel free to post pics so I can see how they look.

Sure. What options would you like it to have? Bull bar, fog lights, bare steel or powder coated?

There is a TON of different options. Let us know what your looking for and we can point you in the right direction.

Im open on options. I definitely want it to be a winch mount with a bull bar. If I could keep the fog lights it would be nice but not necessary if other auxillary lighting options are there. Im not locked into a stubby either so if someone has a full or mid width that they just love I will be open to hear about it.

If your not afraid of chopping your frame I highly recommend PSCs BFH bumpers, that's what I run and absolutely love them.

Let Jason know what you decide he's a great guy to work with!

i say rugged ridge xhd modular bumper, installed mine yesterday and i love it. plus side is you can order the middle and it will be a stubby bumper with winch mount and if you dont have the money right away you can order many different end caps later. also it has an optional stinger or bull bar. first pic is mine with stubby and 10k winch then today i went back and put on the locking storage end caps.

I went with the Rugged Ridge route and I really like it. It was easy to install and has a lot of options. Here is what mine looks like.

I like TnT Customs:



That is "tigger" in the picture. My T-Rex has one too.

I love Wheeling, it frees the mind

Been said but if you don't mind cutting your frame up a little, the Poison Spyder BFH is hard to beat.

Simple, small, clean, strong, functional. Love mine.


It's the one on the left
