    Westin bumpers

    How are Westin bumpers for quality & ruggedness?

    I've been searching for a rear bumper for some time, looking for something tough that will protect the corners without being huge. Most of the low profile ones i like don't have the recess for the spare

    Here's the one I'm looking at:
    This ones on a JK but they have the same one for JL

    Heres what my stock steel bumper looked like before I pulled it today, pictures don't show the bend as bad as it looked in person

    Theyíve always made good truck bumpers and bull bars. Canít comment on stuff for jeeps though. Iíve never run a Jeep one. Only trucks.

    Im looking at westin stuff as well, at least they look cool. Btw, how is that license plate holder fixed to the factory steel bumper? Just clipped in?

    Iíve installed several front and rears on the JLs. They install pretty easily and seem really sturdy and solid. I wouldnít be scared to run one. It would definitely be an upgrade over the stock steel bumpers.
