I have been debating which bumper I want to outfit my 2012 JKU with for some time now. I want the bumper to provide good front end protection (think deer), have a decent approach angle, and be able to house my Warn 9.5xp. I recently came across the Genright Trail Series bumper (see below) and am curios what you guys think. This bumper is made of aluminum but said to be very strong. I can mount my 9.5xp with minor modifications and the approach angle is great. I spoke with Genright yesterday and was told that the entire bumper only weighs 19 POUNDS!!!
My question for is this:
Can a 19 pound aluminum bumper stand the tests of time and provide the kind of durability and protection we need while traveling the backroads of America?
Thanks for your input.
