Well, that narrows it down to about 30-50 fucking choices. :cwm13:
great advice !!:nono-1:If you do mild off roading, look into e-autogrilles on ebay and amazon.
They're a budget knock off bumper maker (supplier?) but cheap and seems to hold up pretty good so far. If you're building a custom v8 rock crawler or some other serious off roader obviously use the best parts possible.
Well aren't you a ray of sunshine. smh.great advice !!:nono-1:
how bout this; round here we like to recommend active members on this very site who are either fabricators or vendor, as opposed to recommend some cheap ass Chinese knock off shit through amazon.
If your requirements are the cheapest piece of shit bumper I can find, then yea go with the auto-grilles nonsense.
If you want quality parts, made by someone who you can talk to I would suggest starting at VKS Fab. If you are looking for any other possible brands I would suggest reaching out to Marcus at River City Offroad. You will be very pleased with the service and quality as well as options you have.
Marcus at RCO is of course awesome, as is Northridge 4xround here we like to recommend active members on this very site who are either fabricators or vendor, as opposed to .... cheap ass Chinese knock off shit through amazon.
for that amount of steel in form of handsome bumpers and a winch to boot , that special sale was one killer deal!I recently had my jeep in the body shop due to an accident. The insurance adjuster called me and asked to meet me at the body shop to see some NIB bumpers that jeep owner whose jeep was in the flood didn't want. The price was 0$ so I said hell yeah, put em on. They are pretty hefty and come from Extreme Terrain, Barricade mfg. They have a special today where you can buy the front and rear plus a 12000# winch for $1355.00 or just the front and rear for under $800.:surprise:

The issue is you're rewarding Chinese made knock offs. There's no innovation, no research and development, no customer service, no support of the off road industry, no support of local clubs and events, etc. And they're not creating US jobs.Well aren't you a ray of sunshine. smh.
I think my post was more than useful. OP was vague on what he wanted and what he needed it for. I clearly stated if he wanted heavy duty quality go with a known brand but if he was looking for something cheap go with a certain brand but explained what he's going to get for that price.
Theres not a single thing wrong with that. Some people (honestly most JKs I see on the road) do not need $2k worth of bumpers on their rigs. We don't know what OP does with his jeep. Any metal bumper out there will be more study then the stock bumpers so its not like the Chinese shit is dangerous in that sense.
I've winched from mine, landed on them and hit against trees with them so far. Nothing wrong. No dents, no broken welds nothing. Of course I don't think they'll hold up as well as other brands, I'm not an idiot but I'm confident they're more than worth the price I paid. I know people that have had them for years now with no issues as well.

I know it's hard to turn away from cheap products, but companies like GenRight, Savvy, and others do so much to produce products in the USA and to support the hobby that we all love. That's not inexpensive.
Have a great day! See ya on the trails!
umm...I'm all for supporting the country but when the products are twice as much (could very well be atleast twice as good quality wise as well) but you don't need that, well it make sense to me.
