Have you seen the TJM stubby bumper?Old thread, but...
Anyone have a good prospective on using this stubby bumper for an overlanding oriented JKUR?
The ARB and AEV full width bumpers look okay. But I'm not a huge fun of how the close the gap between the fenders and bumper to meet Euro-specifications. And most of the other bumpers seem too fab shopped for my tastes (flat steel plates welded together).
This seems like it solves a lot of front bumper problems.
Lighter weight (than full width)
low winch mount
includes license plate mount
multiple light and antenna mounts
solid recovery points
solid hi lift points
winch, radiator, coolant line protection
General wildlife strike protection
The only downsides I see are:
No airbag cans
Possibility of taking a full impact on the tire/wheel/axle.
