    Default WJ Front winch bumper

    I got a sneak peak at a new WJ front winch bumper from www.custom4x4fabrication.com. I run their stuff on my TJ front and rear and have no compalints over the last 9 years. They also give a military discount. I am thinking of doing a light mod (bumpers/winch/2inch lift) on the WJ so I can do a cross country camping/trail trip with my sons after retirement next year. Tough call. TJ with pack mule trailer or WJ...hmmm...like the top off idea of the TJ, but several 1000 highway miles in a WJ sounds better.

    Throw a trailer hitch on the WJ and use it to tow the TJ.

    I do not know about that bumper, I still kind of like my ARB better.
    I'm Mike, make sure you spell it right, because I do not want to get the wrong A$$hole in trouble.

    If you do not have time to do it right the first time, how do you have time do do it over?

    I have not been a big WJ fan in the past, but that is a nice looking bumper.

    Does it protect the underside of the radiator?
    That is the biggiest issue with the aftermarket bumpers for WJ's. Was talking to Frank (wjcando on Beltway and VaK) about this. He said that is the biggiest thing that has been holding him up in buying one for his WJ. Most fail to extend below the radiator to protect it as well.

    I really can't tell. From the picture it does not appear too, although I am sure they could make you something that would. This is not my WJ, but a friends who did not have the off-road package. Mine has the off-road package and the front skid plate provide protection for the radiator. The front skid and transfer case skids are easy add on and cheap from Mopar.
