Re: WK owners - we now have a new bumper option

this is only for 05 - 07

08+ is still on the drawing board.

if they can match up the fenders better and get that winch to sit lower i may consider it

The winch is sitting on top of the (sub)frame rail. To get the winch any lower you'd have to cut the rail or increase the depth of the bumper, options most people will find unacceptable.

Could you do better?

yup - that's what i am figuring out

personally i could accept an increase in the bumper depth to get that winch down even another inch.

I really want to run a winch on my rig at some point and i am still having a hard time accepting i will never have a hidden winch mount for my stock bumper so for all the nit picky things i dont like about this... it is very functional and i may buy 1 at some point...

still waiting to se how the 08 version turns out.

Why don't you tell them what you want for the 08+, maybe they will build it how you want it, or even ask for a custom one
