    If you still have your old bumper and are handy it might be an option. Follow the link if you’re interested:

    I just went to the Fab Fours web site to check out this grumper thing. Well, I noticed that they didn't reconnect the sway bar. That is all I have to say about it.
    I do how ever like my AEV bumper.

    Evo pro series front bumper with hoop.

    With a zeon as stated by wj you can remove the top for even cleaner look

    Looks super clean!! Out of the way. I have the rough country hybrid stubby which keeps the winch down as well but I am definitely liking the looks of Evo and other brands. Will change it one day..

    I have the AEV, which also has a recessed winch. I wasn't a fan of the full width, so I chopped it. Pictured below with my warn 10s

    I’ve been thinking about chopping my AEV Front. Can you shoot me a picture of the side of the bumper?

    How's this? It's 1/4" steel if I remember right. Then a spray can of bedliner did a good enough job to blend it. Or you can buy AEVs paint at $20 a can.

    Thank you. That looks really clean. I might have to added that to the winter project list.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
