Yeah. I think a few of us have heard of them. They're made by Garvin.

Yeah, I looked at them a few years ago, but decided I didn't like the looks and it seems they were a bit pricey at the time.

I always liked the looks of the Wilderness bumpers/carrier. They were in my list of potential purchases for my TJ last year. Jeeperman won out. If I remember it was mainly due to the overall cost vs. what I got for my money. Jeeperman is hands down high quality as is Wilderness. The front bumper being the fianl decision point. Like the Warn bumper, Wilderness are purchased in seperate peices for add ons like lights or a winch. Jeeperman is one peice ready to go, everything is right there for 1 price.

I do like the look of that front bumper by Jeeperman. How much does it cost, and where can I order from?

Not sure if I commented, but last summer after I purchased my TJ, I did alot of investigation of rear bumpers, swing away tire carriers, and jamboree racks for the back of the jeep. It came down to Jeeperman and Bulletproof. But the latter went bankrupt, and I went with the Jeeperman setup in the rear. I think Bulletproof is up and running under new financing. The Jeeperman is really built well, and they also have a real good re-inforcement bracket from your frame to your bumper. My goal was to have nothing attached to the body of the jeep. I dont like the jamboree setups attached to the Jeep body as over time they can really potentally cause issues.

I feel like the jeeperman is the best of class right now for rear bumpers/swing away tire carriers, and jamboree racks.
