Good morning people,

I was wondering if anyone has purchased the Fab Fours stubby bumper. I cant find any reviews on this. I really like the look and its alot cheaper than the oem rubi steel. Thanks in advance

It has a couple of different mounting options for foglights, i was able to hook up my inspired engineering fogs with no problems

I just had mine Line-Xed. The power coating on it was rough at best.

Do the outer bars cast a shadow in the headlight pattern? I like the look of it. Don't like the branding laser cut into it, but most companies do that these days.

it turned out really good! Can I ask what the coating cost?
It was $200 out the door for their top end Line-X Platinum that is suppose to be 300% stronger than their regular product, they also added their UV sealant. I am very happy with the results. I installed it last night along with a M.O.R.E. skid plate. The bumper install was fairly simple with the exception of the fog light bolts. I also would have liked to have been given torque specs. One thing to notice in the last pic is how close this bumper sits to the grill. It would have to be loosened to take off the grill.
For the M.O.R.E. skid plate to work I had to cut to 1/2" notches 1/2" deep about 5" into the top of either side. I knew that I would have to modify it before I purchased it so it wasn't a big deal. I also touched up the stainless bolts that were showing with undercoating to give everything a uniform appearance.

Yes, I installed my factory Rubi lights in it.

Just curious why you went with the M.O.R.E. skid plate instead of the Fab Fours sway bar cover?

I have used it previously and it is proven solid.

The Mountain Off Road sway bar skid is bulletproof. I can’t say the same of FabFours. I have previously used it and was very happy with it so I used it again.
