Been trying to find a good looking stubby with recessed winch mount AND that takes the LED fogs from the factory. I’m coming up short finding a bumper that meets all of these. The LOD signature does but I’m not a fan. Really like the Roam, Motobilt, Warn, one of the Poison Spyders but again, none of them meet criteria. Surely there’s a bumper that meets the above. Anyone got anything?

Crazy timing -- I've been going over the options the past two days myself and my top choices are exactly what you posted, even the Motobuilt. The only one that fits most closely to what you're describing may be the Arctec Nighthawk w/ Mid-Stinger. There's a write up in the bumper thread that was pretty critical but the manufacturer apparently stepped up to help.

I'm leaning toward the ROAM now because they have some modular add-ons coming for their slimline model that will add the fogs.

There's also the Hauk Offroad which might fit the bill too.

The Arctec is my favorite but by the time I get it powder coated it ends up being a pretty pricey bumper. I may go that route, just not sure I want that much money in a bumper.

I’ve been meaning to email Anthony about the ROAM. Do you know for sure if the modular add-ons will take the LED fogs?

I’m really wanting to make a choice by Black Friday or so.

I believe the AEV bumper works with the LED Fogs:

Just confirmed it. See this video at 1:38 (), AEV rep says ALL of the factory fog lights are compatible.

Crazy that there aren't more options for this. I was looking at the Warn, Poison Spyder, and Smittybilt. But I think I like the LoD the most. Just waiting to see if there are any Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales before I actually pull the trigger.

The Smittybilt XRC Gen II Max 77807 meets your requirements. I just wasn't a huge fan of the styling.

I don't think the ROAM extensions will use the stock fogs. It looks more like they're something else, but Im not sure. There's some information in this post #634 which is part of a larger thread where the the topic arose. Go back a few posts from that one and you'll see more about it too. Yeah check this one: #628

I’ve always been a big AEV fan but I really don’t like their new JL bumpers. Just a styling issue with me.

I may just get away from the recessed winch requirement. That frees up more options such as the LOD Destroyer which I like and is reasonably priced. Would really like to catch the Arctec on a Black Friday deal.

Of course the Mopar bumper does all of this. I assume you don't like the style of it?
