Good to see another option for bumpers, front and rear at a decent price. I really like the sliders too! :) The front bumper looks a little tall, like it could be shorter on the bottom but that rear bumper and carrier is nice the way it is.

but yes the front needs a little more work

Don't like front bumper.

Like the back bumper.

Yep this is the third or fourth time they've come up... But I haven't heard of any members picking up any of their products though. Personally not a fan of either bumper. Do dig the sliders though, but would have to see the mounting before I could recommend them.

Dunno I guess the sliders are better than RRO's... But still no Skink though.

I like the Rear bumper and the sliders. The front bumper is too big for me.

x2
I woudl shave off a bit on that rear, it is too big...perhaps too tall...same as the front. It is not bad but not great by any means IMHO.
Good to see some additional options though :)

My judgements:

Front bumper: yow...I'll go with the majority on this one

Rear Bumper: It looks great in comparison to the front, but I still am not a fan. It probably works great for the money, I just don't like the looks of it. The blocky sides don't fit. I like the idea of copying the lines from the doors, instead of a big long flat plate.

Sliders: I don't know the cost of these, but honestly I'd just about rather run any othe kind on the market. RRO sliders are physically tons better than these, by the photos anyway. These don't seem to connect to the pinch weld! A few bolts in the frame going mount a strong enough cantilever to protect the pinch/rocker? Doubt it. Those stick out so far that I can actually see you coming down on the extremity and pivoting the sliders about the pinch weld and ripping the other end out of the frame. Judgement: throw a dart at the rest of the competition and you'll surely end up with a stronger design. Oh, and the burned out plate is just wasted weight and cost in my opinion.

All that said, I do like the fat front, tapering back design for looks. Kinda neat looking. Just drop the burned plate and throw a couple tubes in there to support the step.

I wouldnt normally bash a fellow builder, but those rock rails are suspect. The rest is just visual concerns, to each his own on the bumpers.

If you have to move the spar tire mount every time you get in the back, that would be a pain.

Rear swing away tire carriers that open separately from the rear door aren't a pain. You get used to opening them independently.

Yep and I have 2 carriers to open and it doesn't bother me at all,kinda second nature now.I actually get confused on a "normal" KJ without 2 carriers to open 1st.

Bumper is listed on the bumper sticky, I believe. I contacted the guy about the rear bumper as I was very interested (he believes you do have to have swing away carrier as there is no cutout for tire, but he was not sure) and he was helpful overall. However if you do a google search there are several complaints, but they are from several years ago. I am still interested but unable to take the plunge so I would be interested if anyone has any dealings with this company and their impressions.

I think the front might look diffrent with the;

Recessed 5" 55 watt halogen offroad lights - $115, pair
Recessed 5" 100 watt offroad lights - $150, pair

It looks like it was made specifically to look ascetically pleasing WITH the lights added. yeah i think it's ugly but w/o a photo with the lamps, well.

I like how low it goes, to protect the lower radiator hoses and so forth. i also think it may go to low? :P Or maby it's just right.

I don't mind the rear but i think they could do something about the area near the tail lamps. Also i question it as a good hitch.
Can i get one w/o a hitch and use my oem hitch? :P
