    I have a 2014 Jeep Wrangler unlimited and have a western plow with it. I am looking for an aftermarket front bumper that will fit the OEM bumper. The aftermarket bumper must not stick lower or further out compare to the OEM bumper and the inside of the aftermarket bumper must not be closer to the frame compare to OEM. I've been shopping around on the web but do not want to get a bumper that will not work with my plow. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    The Pic below is the space between inside the bumper to the snow plow frame. Yea not too much space

    Build your own, it's about the only way you'll get what you want.

    Yea building my own would be a little tougher compare to just buying an aftermarket. But i will eave that as a last resort.

    So essentially you want an aftermarket bumper the exact same dimensions as the OEM bumper, right?

    Just checked the calendar... April 1st was 2 weeks ago.

    Yes that is correct. Most likely will not be able to use a bumper with a winch or crawl bar.

    So go to a used auto parts place and get an OEM bumper.

    Same size as your bumper. Problem solved :)

    It MIGHT help us if we knew WHY you want an after market bumper.

    how do you expect to get relevant answers when you ask pore questions? I asked 2 times why you want an after market bumper you never answered. all you said was after market but same as OEM? well get OEM... Why wont OEM work for you? I dont know you dont say. Where do you want the new bumper to perform better... I dont know you dont say. How does the OEM bumper fall short of what is needed.... I dont know you dont say. How the F can I help you when you give no info.

    I want an aftermarket bumper because I do not like the OEM bumper buddy.
