Smittybilt Tubular Jeep Bumpers are custom crafted to fit your Jeep. They gain their strength from durable stainless steel and boast pre-cut vertical uprights for a little flair. And, these bumpers are robotically welded for extreme durability on the road or off. Plus, Smittybilt Tubular Jeep Bumpers are available for the front and rear.
I bought this bumper & hitch set for my 2005 TJ Wrangler. The material is nice and solid and the finish excellent. I expect it to last a long time.
There are a couple of things they *don't* tell you however. First, this is 2 pieces, not one unified piece (as it appears in the photos). Second, the end caps are plastic, though that's not a huge deal. Third, the instructions are basically crap. Because this is 2 pieces, they assume you are installing only one piece and thus there are no unified instructions for installation. Fourth, they omit the fact that you *must* remove your tow hook to install this and you cannot put it back on. Fifth, though this really is a minor concern, the finish on the hitch is smooth and the finish on the bumper is powder-coated. Finally, in order to install the 2 most central bolts (not the outside set, but the pair that goes closer to the center of the jeep), you *must* lower your gas tank. This fact is also omitted. They are clear about the holes you do need to drill, but other aspects of the installation are not mentioned. As I said, the instructions are basically crap.
Despite these issues, and because others might find this easier, I do recommend this product. The price is great and I think the materials will last a long time.
