    I think you meant to say bumper instead of number, I'll change the title to reflect bumper for you.

    Want an honest answer ?
    With some work you can mount one of course, anything can be thrown at the front, enough welding and steel it will work.
    BUT will it look good and be as strong as an ARB, never
    Have seen a bunch that tried to mount TJ bumpers but have not seen one that I would proudly say I owned due to looks

    Didn't Matrix make one? Or was that just a brush guard?

    Its not a bumper per se, good and solid with good tow points built in, I ran one on the 04 for a while and now on the 03 but not technically a bumper
