didn't know if you were or not, it sounded like you knew how one should be put together to incorporate the many aspects of what a winch bumper needs. Maybe you could draw up a design and have it built?

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

well, there seem to be mixed opinions on this bumper. I called and ordered mine today, I am not sure weather to color match or go black. I understand the look, it is an off road thing. It looks like some of the wj aftermarket bumpers, which I like. I don't plan on throwing a winch on any time soon, but if I do, There are winches that don't stand as tall.

Well When I get it in and on, I will have pics!!! So good luck to me.

I don't expect it to be "pretty", but for starters I would like to know why it would have been so difficult to have better matched the sides. Overall, it looks like it was designed for a totally different vehicle. How this design made it off paper is beyond me.

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

IMO i don't expect a show quality bumper since this is made for purpose and function.
I expect that anyone who gets one will put it to good use and not keep it waxed every 3 days and parked in the garage. I expect mine to get beat up and scratched to chit and that will bring a smile to my face.
This is what my wet dreams are when it comes to protection, i could care less about looks, i want people to get the hell out of my way if they see this thing coming down the road. Remember the DUEL movie about that crazy semi truck? that's what i want!

I like the overall look and can see myself possibly getting 1 in the near future but i have to agree w/ Milous here..

there is no reason those fender lines could not be matched

as a designer i tend to pic thongs apart and really tale a look at the details and I know looking at that will make me shake my head every time.

The winch height and my other nit picky gripes i can live w/

look at the way this bumper lines up w/ the commander in this thread...
Commander Off road Mods

thats what we are talking about
