Re: WK owners - we now have a new bumper option
 
my opinion is its OK

• I think they tried to get too much out of the approach angle - seems too pointy
• the winch sits way too high up
• i don't like how the fog lights are set in a bend
• i REALLY don't like the laser cut logos - all 3 of them
• the very sides don't match the fender lines

The logos are ugly as hell!

I hate those humps by the fogs, unnecessary labor IMO. but amazing price which includes powdercoating!

EDIT: There response..

The bumps are actually frame pockets. To maximize ground clearance and approach angles we designed it to hug the front cross member. Keep in mind this is a bolt - on bumper so there is no cutting of cross members.

Info is finally up on there website! 132lbs total without winch. Lucky guys that have silver or black WK's! we have to pay extra if we want it color matched.
Still not bad at all.

I think it looks a hell of a lot better than the other option - ARB.

I have been comparing the photos for hours. Neither fender seems to line up clean. I know the street guys will hate this but I love the look from the front. I am calling in the am to see about color match with powder coat or I will just go Black textured.

I think the black will match my other black add ons, Rola rack, 4x Guard hd side panels, Gobi Ladder.

I am baffled as to how such a glaring flaw was "overlooked". IMO, the whole bumper looks like a mess. It's like they just grabbed some random spare metal parts out of the corner of the warehouse and glued/welded them all together.
