Will you have a JL version of “the hammer” down the road? I do a lot of longer trips on the highway, and hate to lose my fog lights. The Crusher is without a doubt the best looking bumper I have seen for the JL right now, and I love the way the winch is set between the frame rails but I need the fog lights. Seems like this is an issue across the board with the stubby bumpers. I am ok with the higher winch mounting with the hammer once it’s out.

I'm sure we will be coming out with several bumpers but I do not have an eta on those currently

I’ll keep my eyes peeled. The design of your bumpers really looks great with the grill of the JL.

Rubicon Axles with just our Motobilt Diff Covers
When we upgrade to the 42"s in Stage 3 we will swap in 1 tons with one of our kits

@motobuilt do you have any tutorials in regards to modifying the front fenders to the current condition showed in your pictures?

Sweet builds! I have seen one other guy on YouTube running 37s on stock JLUR (w/ MOPAR steel bumpers) and shocked it was only moderate rubbing on light trails. Can't wait to get my 2019 and throw on 2.5" lift and 37s.

Those Trepadors must sounds like a fleet of low flying helicopters driving down the freeway....lol.

Do you have plans to offer this bumper with a full stinger in the future? Thanks!
What do you consider a full stinger? We have one that will be offered that is about 3-4"s taller then this one

Sorry no I do not. We just flexed the jeep out and cut where it touched. We had to cut the ends down on the rubicon rails along with pinch seams on the lower part of the fender
Thanks,
Bobby

Took a couple of photo's to show how tight we were able to build the bumper to the winch.
