    Both look good. I like to have 'D-rings' on the front bumper, with the attatching point tied into the frame horns.

    On the rear, the reciever makes a great tow point, just slide the strap hoop into the reciever, and pin it.

    I've only ran custom fabbed bumpers, but I've heard good things about Rusty's products. HB

    Usually can't go wrong with Rusty's as they make good products.

    FYI, there is a guy on here that does custom bumpers, screen name BEZERK. His work is nothing short of excellent, prices are great, and he lives in the VA BEach area so you could pick it up yourself. Tell him what you want and chances are he can do it.

    I've got the Procomp on the front of my CJ and have been happy with it.

    I agree! Contact Eddie (Beserk) at groundpounderfab.com. He is on this forum as well (He was in the Army) He is a small shop fabricator that makes each bumper like its going on his own Jeep.

    His front and rear bumpers have shackle mounts that go through the bumper and are welded on both sides. His rear swing aways are awesome and he can build the front plain or with a hoop or stinger. His welds are a work of art in and of themselves.

    I had him modify my Spyder Customs Ricochet Rockers and his welds were way better than thiers.........

    I am going to ask him to build my front cage when I can break loose the money.

    Only thing I can think of... if you're going to do a rear bumper, you might as well get one with a tire carrier on it.

    All my mods are Rusty's products. Good people and good service. I like the 2nd set better however I have to agree in going with one of our own. Let us know what you pick and show some pics when you get it.
