Fixing stupid....
+1 for the Rock Hard Patriot front bumper. I love it, and it works great for flat towing behind the RV.
If you do it, be sure to get the LOD frame tie in brackets.

I did not care for the rear bumper design though.

Since you weren't specific, has anyone had any experience with the Quadratec brute strength aluminum rear bumper?

I asked the Rockhard guys about the LOD brackets when I ordered my front bumper, and they said my rig ('21 Rubi) already had them. I haven't crawled under and removed the plastic to check, though. My bumper and winch are due tomorrow, so I guess I'll find out.

It was just posted by Savvy; their latest build of a JK bumper on a JL that was prepped for the EMC race next week.

Seeing my front drop 3/4” after a 10k Warn winch with synthetic line... I’m thinking I should’ve just saved my money for another mod. I’m more about weight savings than the aesthetic value of aluminum and I don’t think there was any weight saved that a bare minimum steel bumper would have saved, especially with an integrated winch plate.

I swapped my OEM plastic bumper for a RockHard mid-width aluminum bumper with a Warn EVO 10K winch with synthetic and some KC's. I was worried that it would drop my front end so much that I would have to add a lift. In reality, it dropped it about 1/8". Not worried about that at all.

Just saw another user picked up the MP and he claimed its an exact clone to the Mopar just obviously way lighter. He also stated the end caps do come off. For the price, I think this is impossible to beat.

Are they mounting a winch? The site says 41lbs shipped which is extremely light (id expect the winch plate to weigh 25lbs or so). Got a link to their post?
