Aftermarket bumpers that are built good with sick looks for a 05 KJ Renegade are over a grand easily. Now on the other hand if you were looking for bumpers for a JK, Rub, or TJ they like 150 to 450 an get both front and rear right. With me buying a aftermarket Bumper for one for those, that means breaking out plasma, grinder, brake, bender, and of course the tig mig welder! Which one would look similar with angle and kinda set with the KJ grill & fender flares?

To be honest
NONE
I have yet to see one that looked right on a KJ, was built as well as an ARB, that was bolted on good enough that you could actually hook to it
Rears will not match up at all , just basically straight
You would have to do a ton of modifying to both to look even close

NOW if you have a plasma cutter, grinder, brake, and a Tig , why would you not build your own from scratch ?
Lots better ( if you mount it like an ARB, ) cheaper and way stronger

I hope to someday have the necessary tools and equipment to build a good bumper, probably something similar to the matrix that was once available. My opinion is that the ARB bumper looks like donkey sweat, but maybe that's just me?

Just you, I used to say the same thing until I got one for 1/4 of the price of a new one, less than a year old
Wish I had never sold it and wish daily I had another one

Don't get me wrong, if I found one cheap I'd get it, but I sure don't like it anywhere near as much as the price says I should.

If I had the money today, one would be on my doorstep soon, no matter the price

I found one recently 1700bucks for the whole liberty with the aRB and all the upgrades recommended here, I believe I helped the guy fix his transmission issue (maybe) rather than buying it and his jeep lives on! Next time I'll grab it for ya Tommudd
