I'm not really feeling the whole stubby thing. I was thinking about a full or mid width...

I had not seen it, so I had to google it. Nice bumper. If that's your style, go for it.

I'm happy with my Shrockworks Mid-width. Plus they are local (here in Houston). So kept my money in TX Smile

I've been thinking about this since I got my newest jeep and IDK, It's been a back and forth kinda thing. Buy one, cut mine and install a winch... I got the one that went to SEMA, and it's a one-off build, not the production run. Its a little different than the production models, and thats a plus in my opinion. about as origional as one can get. Also ordered the third row seat for the munchkins...

They all look good imo, not a fan of full widths, especially with those flying nun bushwacker pocket fenders, but they're ok. I like my Shrocks stubby for now, it has better streamlining than the MBRP stubby which is just chopped on the ends. I'm considering giving mine to my wife and doing something custom with some kind of different stinger on mine down the road.

few JKO pics of MBRP bumpers, they look decent...

Hey long as you're happy that's all that matters really. The full width would at least look better in my humble opinion with the stock flares but that's just me. Good bumpers regardless.

I know I'm way the hell off from everyone... I figure, Its a BUMPER! How hard could it be?! I've installed a Ranchhand on my dads truck before, this cant be much harder than that.... Thanks, Jonsjeep, I'll keep yall posted on the exact ETA, they ship on Fri. If any of you guys and gals wanna show up when it gets here, You're more than welcome and I'll will even feed you and put you up for the night. (four bedroom house, extra couch, and a decent air matress)

My only worry is about the install of those Flying Nun Fenders (thats how I will forever refer to them now,,,Thanks Sasquach). Any tips?

The ETA is sometime around the middle of next week, so I'm probably going to take the old fenders off tomorrow or this weekend to save time just in case they dont arrive untill Friday. Maybe I wont be up all night installing them the night before we meet at Hidden Falls


Sascha, Call you tomorrow amigo.

I may take you up on that offer. I'm gonna start taking off the fenders today and If the stuff arrives on Wed or Thurs, I may not be able to wait. I have no patience. Just ask Twylla.

I've got a bag full of tools. if ya want, you can bring the bumper with ya to hidden falls and we can knock that out pretty quick with all hands on deck. fingure 4 of us can get it done in about 30 - 45min. maybe less, but i always like to estimate on teh high end. or jons on friday night. that's a good two hours off your drive to hidden falls.
