They painted the bumper :surprised::puke:. The wheels and grill are hideous. Also I don't get why the poor backlights have to be jailed inside a cage.

I love me some sting-gray (obviously) but there's such a thing as too much

I think I was too distracted by the imitation Trektop to notice the wheels...

The front bumper in a matte black color would be good. I'd go with something like that. Looks like good access to the sway bars for manual disconnections.

The more I look into these Jeeps the more I like the lower profile stock looking ones, or "moparized".

Jeeps lots of jeeps
Rugged Ridge appears to be coming out with some cool products.

I have their tire carrier kit and like it a lot. The bumpers look cool/stockish but different, fender flares are cool as well.

Remember when Rugged Ridge was the source of cheap crap?

Pepperidge Farms remembers.....


They’ve definitely improved. I’ll be buying several of their products in the coming year.

Looking at their JK and TJ all seems to be pretty decent. So not sure what you are referring to.

They used to have good design and poor QA/QC, but seems improving after they were bought by Truck Hero.

Smittybilt seems to have improved a lot to from what I remember when I had a JK. I remember when people referred to them as Shittybilt.
