How does that winch hold up? Does the RR bumper accept factory fogs?
Yes, the bumper accepts the OEM fogs. The winch gets great reviews. Many have had theirs for years with no problem.

Rival 4x4 has a full length and stubby. I have the full length and love it.

It’s pricey but well with it... I have to recommend the GenRight!

I bought a MetalCloke. Since I don’t push trees or borders I wanted one that’s not too heavy. MC is a quality business. I like the fact that it’s bumper is modular. If I crunch one end, I can replace just that end. I was able to pick the stinger that worked for me and change it if I change my mind. Fit & finish is good. I’ve been happy with everything I bought from MC.

i have the same LOD bumper. I bought it used with a few pre installed scrapes. The finish is holding up wel. Not flaking off or anything. It appears tough as nails.

went on like butter. It was more difficult removing the stock bumper. The oem halogen fogs fit right in. You can tel when a company puts in extra effort to make sure the installation is trouble free. I love this bumper.

still shopping for a rear. Id love to find a used one but thats near impossible even here in LA. I dont know if i can pony up $1k for a bumper. The rear bumper is low priority for now.

LOD is high quality. High cost. But you get what you pay for
FYI: I just gave my old JL’s Fishbone Rear Bumper to Ron at Blackstone Jeep Shop in Santa Clarita. Scratched. It’s available if you’re interested.

Good morning jeepers,

I really want a nice front bumper /winch setup, but I just cant decide. I've seen the mopar steel with the Warn winch but I just cant pull the trigger with the high price tag. What do you guys have or think is the best setup for under 1500 dollars? Thanks in advance...
I saw this one on a JL this weekend. Not sure what brand it is. Can anybody identify.[GALLERY=]

I had the mid width LoD on my 4 door which was a nice bumper. Now I have the Rubi steel and have no reason to change.

How do you like those LP6s? I'm looking at buying some LP9 Pros. Could have used them driving back from Colorado Sunday night!

They are everything they say they are. Probably too bright for some instances, but I don't think you can have too much light. I can't imagine the LP9's. I just liked the size of the LP6 a tad better.

I ended up getting the Rugged Ridge Venator and Warn Evo 10S. The bumper includes the winch plate. Picked them both up at 4WParts for less than $1500. They always have 10% off orders over $500 and free shipping.

Being a heavy stamped steel, they're not for rock crawling. I like the way it looks, kinda factory-like but different.
