            Great Bumper Add

            Really happy with the way this brush guard looks on my TJ! Had a really difficult time getting the bottom bumper bolts out due to weathering/rust, but eventually they I got them out. If you have the 2 stock bumper pads on your bumper already, you'll have to remove them, which requires you to take off the entire front bumper. Not difficult. My only REAL complaint with this product - and the reason I give it 4/5 stars instead of 5 - is that the photos shown on the website have the brush guard assembled incorrectly. The brush guard brackets that you mount to the bumper should face away from the center, not toward the middle. If you assemble as the photos show, the brackets will not match up with the bumper holes. The brush guard comes disassembled, and with no instructions - which is why the photos on the website should be corrected. Really happy with the way it adds a new look to my mostly factory TJ, especially for the price.

            Decent Value, quality could be better

            The kit came unassembled, which was not an issue, but the pictures on the WEB Site show the vertical supports reversed from what they actually need to be for matching up to the factory bumper bolts. the other thing was the bolts, washers and Locking washers were all standard zinc plated hardware, when the entire unit is powder coated black. if you do not want the hardware to stick out like a sore thumb, you have to paint the hardware black so it blends in withe the installation. also had to grind down some of the metal for the holes to match up to the factory mounting points.

            It’s decent

            The product itself it very nice looking, I love this style of grille guard. When it came however the box was busted open with parts falling out. The box wasn’t long enough to fit the parts so they just left one end open and taped bubble wrap all around it. Some hardware was missing including a couple washers, a lock washer and a bolt. I don’t know if it came with hardware to mount it to the bumper is it did I didn’t get it. Once I got all the hardware I needed it took about an hour to install. It looks very nice and is plenty sturdy. I can stand on it, or pull and push the Jeep on flat ground and it doesn’t budge. Nice product but bad experience.

            Fits perfectly

            This fits my 2000 Jeep Wrangler perfectly after removing the two bumper pads. It looks nice and I’m ready to hit the trails. Install is easy however I had to use the air drill to get the stock bolts off the front bumper. Below doesn’t allow me to pick the correct year but my jeep is a 2000.

            Great addition to stock bumper

            My TJ came with this from the previous owner. It's all stock cosmetically except for this brush guard. It gives it a distinctive look for little cost and install effort. I tow the TJ behind my motorhome with and A-frame tow bar. It won't flip up due to interference with the brush guard but I do wrap my safety cables around the brush guard and it works great for that.
