the one on the white jeep is cool because its a stubby good for climbing over rocks
however the one on the red jeep protects the winch more and looks a whole lot cooler and has a place for aux. lights id go with the red one

They are both very cool. I have never seen one like on the red jeep. Now remember I am a girl so, if you want to be different and have something that not everyone else has go with the holey one, if you are just thinking practical the other one is the norm. You might want to think the one on the white jeep would be easier to clean and wouldn't get brush or whatever stuck in it.

With all the holes is it as sturdy?

Can't say I would choose either for my Jeep, but of the two I would choose the second. I guess its the Poly Performance bumper judging by the speed holes.

Actually they allow for a thinner metal to be used, but still retain its strength. So a thinner metal is lighter and if some of that metal is removed it is lighter still. In offroad racing lighter equals faster.....thus the slang name speed holes.

Here's a big question. Wich one do You Like Better Terrahawk?
The Hanson is a nice stubby but doesn't protect the winch much, the one on red Jeep is longer across the front but covers the winch better . They are both nice, Tough Choice.

I like the 2nd- the tubing looks cool. And the visible welds give it a hardcore handmade look.

i think you should ask yourself what do you plan on doing with the bumper and what do you need it to protect..

I chose the purejeep based on three criteria:

1. needed to protect the vulnerable under rider bar
2. wanted a stubby for better approach angles
3. Wanted a winch platform that put the winch between the frame rails

Yeah, I know, just messing with you. The dimpled holes not only reduce weight, but make that plate much stronger. Kinda like putting an X break on a piece of sheet metal.

I got an expedition 1 basic DX for the front. Will get a Poly Performance rear when the are released and have the $$$$$. Like the Poly, if it was a little narrower I would have gone with it for the front.

Yet another company jumps into the bumper mix... found this over on the other forum


River Raider Rock Crawler Front and rear bumpers. These bumper are a 1/4" thick steel and both stubby. The First ever JK Rear bumper with a recessed winch, and the front Rock Crawler Bumper will have optional LED water proof side lights angled down for the night time rock crawler.

This is incorrect, technically, Jeeperman was the first, the remnants of which are now known as Red Rock Fab.
