    I’m hoping to order ROAM rock rails for my JLUR, but now comes the challenge of finding bumpers / tire carrier with powder coat texture / color that matches. I know a lot of folks are running ROAM side steps and rails, so what bumpers are you running?

    Going to run rock hard 4x4 mid width for towing behind my RV. Love the one I have on my JK, and think it will look great with roam side steps!

    Kinda late to this game but I’d stick with roam for their front and rear bumpers. The rear bumper/tire carrier is awesome and they have several front bumper options

    That does look nice. Is that the mid or low brush guard? Wish it had factory light holes. I just upgrade mine to led, and hate the idea of losing them. Thanks for the post.

    Yeah
    Yeah I hear ya!! I got the mid bumper. It was a tough decision for me to get rid of the fog lights. I wanna go LED all around, but the JL’s have been out for a year. I’m going to slow it down on the mods and just let things improve overtime. My next investment is a bottom skid plate. After that I’m done for a while lol. I got this bumper for $450 which includes the skid plate, winch mount, d-ring mounts and the bumper itself. This is my first time owning a Wtangler and their just like buying legos, but instead of things coming in sets you pay for each one. So when I was all that stuff was included I kinda forgot the fact that I wanted fog lights. Also it stands out!!!

    I went with LOD Full width front bumper. I had it Line X coated . I am happy with it. I also love my Roam side steps I never was one to worry about all my brand names matching. I just see it and if I like it I buy it.

    Go take a look at Oracle Lighting. I bought the led upgrade bulbs for a budy on his birthday and then upgrade my entire front end for less than the cost of the moose LED headlights. They are high quality l and bright as heck.

    I would wait on the @ROAM rear. My wife has the production version that is single action, but I have been using the pre-production version for nearly a year(Doesn't hinge with the tailgate like my wife's) You will be hard pressed to find a non frame chop rear bumper with a better departure angle.
    I initially wasn't a fan of the non removable hitches, but after a lady in an Impala rear ended me at a low speed I am thankful they were there. Her bumper was severely damaged and the hood pushed up into the windshield shattering it as well. She asked if I wanted to call insurance, but after I wiped her paint off the hitch I realized a sharpie was all I needed to fix my damage....

    Installed @ROAM rear bumper today. Lights on the way to complete the look. Fitment is great and install was a breeze. Love the look.

    Jeep is looking great...do you think it would be worth adding the spare tire at a place like Moab?

    Chris, any chance you can post a top down pic and one parallel to the door on an angle? I’d like to see how that mechanism works with the door hinges. I think I like it as a better option than the nearly $700 hinge/carrier replacement.
