Just curious what you all are thinking... I am leaning towards custom as I want to mount some lights and an upright winch...
I would like to see a front bumper with the receiver trailer hitch and a lot of LED lights. I don't see the need to carry around the winch 24/7 (for weight and UV wear on the rope) and then I could the hitch mounted winch on the front or rear, depending on how much trouble I get myself into....

I am really hoping that aftermarket come out with some off road bumpers in the next year! If we can get as much aftermarket support as Jeep we will see plenty of winch bumpers to chose from

I have the same on my XJ.. hitch on the front and the back. and I have a winch, bike rack, and extra carrier extension all for it that I can mix and match 2 of the 3 as needed. I may go with the factory modular bumper, but if one comes out with a hitch... I may switch.

What I'd love is to have both in the front.. a built in winch and still have the hitch but probably asking for too much.

After seeing just the few things Ford put out on those two intro accessory videos........I'm sure they'll be an equivalent amount of god-knows-what to sell you for this thing.

From the pictures at the NYSE today, it looks like the Ford Warn option just mounts 'into' the standard Bronco steel bumper? This is not the same bumper on the First Edition?

Not a fan of that at all. It completely kills your approach angle, and looks like an afterthought designed by a person that has never used one in the real world.

I haven't seen any I like yet so I'll build my own or see what the aftermarket releases. I want it to sit up high such that it overlaps the lower grill a few inches. The grill not being straight across at the bottom bothers me for some reason. The fact that it doesn't say F-O-R-D is also annoying ;)

Do you think we could steal a bumper off a Rubicon? It's clean, it has fog lights, it has tow hooks and it hides the damn winch...Seriously how hard is it to design a bumper?
