Default B. Lee's Off Road - Front XJ bumper

Hello everyone! Boy are we excited about being in our new shop, and we've got the time and space to bring you some new stuff!

How about we kick off our line of recovery bumpers for XJ's with the basic front bumper. It's a non-winch version, has 2 D-ring tabs, & full frame tie in brackets.

** edit **
This offer has expired, please find out newest Front Bumper thread in the vendor forum, thanks!

The website is close, but not ready for primetime yet.

Until then, PM me for ordering details.

More pics, this one with a 2" receiver tube added (+$30) ---

Looks good Brian.

What are the metal specs?

Any plans to add extended sides back up under the front fender?

Also I'd like to see a matching rear bumper that fits with a cut and fold of the rear lower quarter panel

All 3/16", the frame brackets are 1/4", the D-ring tabs are 3/4".

I toyed with bringing the corners back under the fenders, but didn't like the looks of it. I like simple, clean, tucked in nicely. I'd like it to be even more low-profile to get an even better approach angle, but I compromised a bit.

$259 shipped to your front door, you cannot beat that.

Seen this bumper in person, and also seen a prototype last night of one with an integrated hitch.
The approach angle this thing gives you is amazing.
For 259 SHIPPED?

If I had an Xj id be all over this.

Does have a nice approach angle incorporated.

Any plans for a winch bumper? I think the design would look great with one.

I think a winch would fit behind


But I don't think Brian has had the opportunity to do any testing

Yes, but I'm more inclined to do a hidden winch bumper first. I nkow not everyone is keen on cutting stuff out of their Jeeps, and might be a little hesitant to chop out the front crossmember, but it's far cooler! If you want a front porch to sit your winch on, that may be a little while coming.

I'd definitely buy a hidden winch version. I took my winch and hanson bumper off because I hated the look.

Wrapstar, its in the works! Some people like that look, some don't. There's not enough options for those of us who don't.

Plus, you could sell that catalog bumper and have enough left to buy a new B. Lee's Off Road bumper to replace it!

Keep your eyes here for updates.
