I'm looking at getting some better bumpers. I don't like the idea of adding several hundred pounds, with Steel Bumpers. I figured the Aluminum ones would provide the protection I need, without the excessive weight. Anyone have Aluminum Bumpers?? Who makes them??

Really like my Rock Hard rear aluminum. Haven’t found a front bumper I like enough to replace my Mopar steel bumper yet.

I installed the Rock Hard full width aluminum over the summer. I liked the aluminum because it was only about a +2lb net weight gain from the plastic bumper that came off. As others have said, it is pricey, but the quality is good, and I got a good price from Northridge 4x4 that included shipping, so there's that.

Be sure to factor in shipping costs when you are looking.

Another vote for Rock Hard. I have the mid-width aluminum front bumper and it's awesome. The bottom edge has contacted a few limestone ledges at the corners on the trail while slowly climbing and there's no damage other than scratches in the powder coat. The bumper is unbelievably light.

I was hoping to scoop a full genright set since they have the high Clearance front bumpers. Thought I would go with their rear bumper and tire carrier as well. Called to see if they offered any deals right now since they had 10% during labor day. Nada. Asked if they could do anything shipping wise. Nada. so almost $4k out the door shipped to Florida was a no go for me. Could have managed just over $3k which would not be bad once I sold my current bumpers. Hoping there is a similar Black Friday deal but the person on the phone was insisting it would be like a free shirt or hat or something. Hopefully that is not the case. Have yet to find a dealer for Genright that has anything special going on.

MP concept one is pretty legit since I think the OEM bumpers look amazing.

Have you looked at the Savvy bumper for the JK? It is nice and minimal. It requires a little effort but looks the best in my opinion and still has a recessed winch mount.

Rock Hard. You can easily add a tow bar is why I bought mine. I ended up testing it with a 40mph deer hit and got ZERO damage. Highly recommend.

I can only imagine the shipping from Savvy.

I looked at the magnaflow exhaust from them and shipping was $130 to east coast.

over 1/3 the price of the exhaust.

Did you get this bumper? Any idea on the weight compared to the OEM steel bumper? How‘s the quality look? I like it but I‘d like to know how much weight difference there is... I couldn’t find it listed on the site.
would like to know that info also. I was debating getting the eBay knock off but I’m out on that. I think the MP has my vote now. There is one user review on it on the website.
