Thinking about the AEV or maybe the Mopar modular from the RubiX but im not buying the chinese made one over an American made bumper.Aldo said:Here are all the Mopar bumpers http://www.mopar.com/jeep/wrangler/2014/shop/362258/269/4993/
I've seen Chinese bumpers fail while winching, rip completely off the frame, bolts pulled right through the metal bumper. Metal tore around the bolts leaving a small section still,securely bolted while the rest of the bumper and winch lays on the ground. (No ASTM in china even though it's supposed to be international now) for the extra few hundred dollars vs. my many thousands of dollars of Jeep, I'd spend more for the peace of mind.Jeepnut said:http://www.wranglerforum.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=1215257&d=1403044449

The problem being, the production runs are not always the prototype and test run parts.Aldo said:My Made in China Mopar bumper is as solid as they come.
I trust Mopar to require its suppliers to meet OE specifications, regardless of wherever they may be located, and I trust my CDJR dealer to sell me Mopar accessories that will fit my Jeep perfectly.
Well here there are a ton of Wranglers but alot of yuppies buy them so waves are rare it seems that only the hardcore guys wave. Non Wrangler buyers forget it they look at you like your crazy! Either way I will carry the wave torch and wave till my wrist gets tired!!!MoparNorm said:Ha! Ha! That's great.
In certain areas of the SoCal mountains, 3 out of 4 vehicles are Jeeps, you learn to just leave your hand up... :lol:
Your right I know I mised a few Jeeps yesterday when I picked it up because I was paying attention to traffic and getting used to the Jeep. I feel like I did something wrong but hey ill make it up to them lol! Now its a game with me to get a wave from the Street Jeeps. I was looking at the easter eggs on it with a buddy earlier today and I like the little grey MB's on the black wheels.MoparNorm said:Well, your observations are pretty accurate, newer Jeep drivers of the pavement Jeeps are consumers and not aware of the Jeep Wave, however the one time you decide not to wave and do get a wave too late to return it, you feel bad all day long!
That's funny. I don't think it's the Vehicle purely it's more the class of consumer Jeep brings in now. The only waves i get back are from Wrangler owners and even then its 90% two door 10% JKU. But i refuse to stop i just wave and smile like an idiot.MoparNorm said:I was having lunch with my daughter yesterday and I exchanged waves with another Wrangler and my daughter lamented, "I never get any waves..."
I didn't have the heart to tell her it's because she drives a Patriot... Some things are just too hard for a Dad to do...
