I like that a lot. It’s a perfect compromise between the Mopar and the Maximus.
Thanks. That is what I thought too. I didn't want it too low but didn't want it too high either, especially with a forward facing camera. The fit and finish are great and at $156, in-stock, and free shipping I felt it was a pretty good deal.

I just bookmarked it and will be ordering that as soon as my 2023 comes in

Anyone own the Mopar triple-hoop Grille/Winch Guard? P/N: 82216474AA

Wondering how it compares to the MAXIMUS-3 JL XLP HOOP?

The Maximus-3 XLP costs about $25 less, so not a big difference there. The biggest difference is that Maximus-3 uses 2.5" tubing for the main hoop and 2" for the outer hoops. It gives it a better overall look than the mopar version that is made entirely with 2" tubing. In my opinion, the larger tubing is more visually proportionate to the JL's. The 2" bumper bars sorta look like fence railing.

The fit and finish is awesome. The powder coating is a spot on match to the mopar steel bumper. And it still looks brand new woth zero signs of rust after over 3 years on the front of a Jeep that doesn't get washed. I've got the SLP bull bar, which is essentially the XLP without the outer hoops...

Warn low-height loop bar. I mounted the camera to the hoop itself. Gives me a good view out front. Not sure any of these pictures work, if needed I can take a close up picture later.

What camera set up is this? Can you turn it on while driving?

I have the Tazer from Z Automotive. I bought the camera from Amazon.

Tazer: https://www.zautomotive.com/product/z_tzr_jlm
Camera Input: https://www.zautomotive.com/product/z_vid/
Note, they sell complete kits, but I knew I was not going to put the camera in the grill

Camera: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07HNRYHZ6
I went with an ultra-wide frame of vision, good for seeing right in front on the bumper, but its a view that takes a little bit getting used to.

Yes I can enable it while driving, Tazer provides that override control.

Thanks for the info! I’m mainly interested in having the ability to quickly turn the front camera on when parking so I’m curious how you go about turning it on? Is it a button on the tazer or on the radio screen itself? I’d probably prefer a physical button but realize that’s likely not an option.

With the tazer, I have the mute button programmed for it (default option). Double tap the mute button quickly, brings up the cameras, shows rear by default, but an on screen button switches to front camera. It works good for quick access, and parking like you suggest.
