Saguaro Front Bumper-Installed

How about the Saguaro bummer? New style has the ends match to the body lines and looks pretty slick imo but i think its still in testing along with the new rear bumper and tire carrier.

i like that 1 - but its an 05 - 07 that it is sitting on

that wouldn't work right w/ an 08+ and it doesn't seem to have winch capability which basically just makes it unneeded weight to me.

what i do like about it are the clean subtle lines

Re: Build a bumper for a WK

Have you guys heard of Iceland Offroad? Their bumpers are fiberglass but the designs look much nicer than ARB. They offer winch and non-winch bumpers.

I've already emailed them and they don't currently have plans to produce one for the WK. BUT, they said if the market wants one, they'll do their best to make one.

its definitely a huge improvement.

the fender lines were my biggest criticism but i still don't know if i can justify adding that kind of weight.

Bumper looks good but IMHO, id soften the face up a bit with less sharp corners, maybe make it styled a little more like an 08+ bumper. more rounded.
