Bull bar brush guard or all new bumper????

Hey I could use some advise from anyone willing. I really want to beast up the front of my 08 wk. I really want regardless of final choice to be able to mount some D-rings for recovery purposes. If I get a bull bar or brush guard does anyone know if it would be strong enough if needed to be able to hook a tow strap too and yank someone out of a jam? Or should I just get a whole new bumper that already has the D-rings mounted to it? And does anyone have any suggestions on where to go to get a good deal on one?

You could just get these.http://www.saguaro4xcomponents.com/i...products_id=45

I would not want to try and pull somebody with my brush guard. It might hold up, but I wouldn't have the balls to test it.

Re: Bull bar brush guard or all new bumper????

I've seen these and that's one option I've thought about a lot. Will they still work in addition to a brush/bull bar? And I gotta admit I REALLY like the brush guard you have on yours. What kind is it if you don't mind me asking?

Re: Bull bar brush guard or all new bumper????

i wouldnt want to be in a collision with a bull bar installed on my vehicle. it would mess up your whole vehicle in a front end collision because of how they are attached.

Re: Bull bar brush guard or all new bumper????

Bull bars/ brush guards mount to the factory tow hook locations deleting the tow hooks if you have them or preventing them from being installed. Those d ring mounts won't work either. Brush guards and bull bars ooffer protection from only that brush and light bumps. They bend easily and actually do more damage to your vehicle in an accident and can end up costing you more in repairs or do more severe damage then with out.

What you need is the 4xguard matrix setup. Its built to take abuse. It has d ring moounts incorporated in to it and has plenty of other features you will like.

Re: Bull bar brush guard or all new bumper????

Thanks for the compliment, my brush guard is made by Hunter. I really have it to prevent parking lot dings. After having 3 bumpers (on my previous car) replaced from people driving like crap in local parking lots, I went to this. As far as taking more damage, that could happen, but it's a risk I'm willing to take. The likelyhood of a small lot fender bender is much greater for me. Plus that's what insurance is for.

Also the matrix bar is awesome and would be my top choice, but it's money.

Re: Bull bar brush guard or all new bumper????

Yeah I love the look and reviews of them but they are pricey for sure. Anyone have any pics of a matrix on their rig? Been looking a little bit but havn't been able to see a pic of an 08 with one installed?

Yeah I think that's the route I'm going to go. I saw a pic that looks very similar to the matrix but holds a winch hidden inside. Anyone know who makes it? Does matrix make one like that?
