    I want steel bumpers on mine.

    I really don't want arb since i don't need winch and additional lights, and honestly quite expensive.

    Is there anyone who makes bumpers for 05 kj's?

    Hard to beat a ARB and any bumper will be in that price range

    Arb is the only reliable one so far. Rl doesnt look like he's in business, guy who might fabricate bumper is somewhere far (im in maryland).

    Only reason i want a new one is this.

    I put leds as turns and took old turns out. Grille looks a lot better than i thought it would but looks odd with old turn signals out.

    I want the look of either;

    1. Cover old turns with new bumper. Way liberties are supposed to look. (Arb/rl bumper etc)

    Or

    2. Make bumper look "separated" from like how wranglers look.



    Are there any companies that make bumpers besides arb/rl?

    Yes the ARB has a winch mount and is set up for lights - but a great advantage of the ARB or one like that is protection. I'm always worried about deer where I travel and the experience of several on here is that the ARB is great front end protection for deer, shopping carts, small cars, etc. Except for the deer none of those show up offroad :icon_lol:

    This is my wife bumper, built by that guy in "Liberty Texas" hahahaha

    But for any bumper worth its weight to even put on the KJ, your looking at $850+. Especially custom.

    This one is real sexy!! Check out those beads!![​IMG]
