Front bumper Ideas

Hey guys, i'm new to JG. I've had my WK for over a year now. A couple of weeks ago someone Reversed into my jeep at a walmart (of course), and i need to replace everything in the front end except for the hood. I currently have the whole front bumper off so it is free game to whatever i want to pick. The problem is i dont know what kind of front bumper, grille, and brush guard(incase someone decides to reverse into me again).

Ideas/Comments?

I can have pics up if needed. I also need new headlights due to all the mounts broke for my headlights. So throw some suggestions in there please.

Re: Front bumper Ideas

The OEM lights are plastic. Depending on what you like you have a few options, the 08 conversion is very nice, alot better the the previous years. And if you like the offroad/rugged look go that route. If you like the looks of the SRT you could do the SRT from bumper conversion. But be aware that a brush guard does little to nothing to protect you from an impact, they are mainly for looks, they tend to cause more damage in an impact cause they (depending on the size) will bend back and hit the hood.

Are there any pictures on this forum of someone who did this?

Of an 08' bumper or an SRT bumper? Lol just look at an 08' GC or an SRT... All you need is either bumper cover and any parts needed to get it on there, I know with the srt you need some rivets, bolts, struts and some other stuff.

Re: Front bumper Ideas

I'll probably stick with the 08 bumper the SRT seems like i'd need the body kit in order to look right too haha. Plus i go wheelin sometimes i dont want to mess the front end up some how.

Just be aware its not cheap, especially since you need the headlights. BUT if your doing it you can get the OEM hid lights which are sick
