That was one thing about the JeepSteel bumper that jumped out at me when I looked at yours Pablo was how they chose to go about mounting the recovery points/shackles. I thought that might be an issue - and you confirmed that it definitely could be. That being said, I had my criticisms of WAM as well, which I documented here;Big Blue -
I would have to say that it is a good value, but I think the WAM is a better quality bumper overall.
It appears Jeepsteel is new to building for the Commander, and has been getting over some learning curves. I was one of the first to order from him and his first customer to fit the larger of the winches on the market.
I had some trouble fitting the WARN Zeon 12-S (a larger size winch) inside the hole in the bumper and I had to trim the hole larger; he has since changed his blueprint to accommodate this issue. The other problem I had was after testing the recovery points, the shackle plates bent from being pulled out of the snow/pulling others out; again, the manufacturer was responsive and sent out new shackle plates that are double the thickness as the original.
The only other (minor, nevertheless existing) gripes I have is the paint appeared to still be wet when it was wrapped up for shipping so there was some funny looking paint I had to touch up, and second, the pallet for shipping was smaller than the width of the bumper and the corners were packed w nothing but bubble wrap, and consequently the corners took a beating on the freight truck. The manufacturer did not offer to make any concessions, which was IMO unfortunate.
With that being said, I still think the Jeepsteel bumper is the best value out there for our rigs, but WAM appears to be better quality overall but is about 1.5-2 times the price (based on comments and further research/correspondence with owners of both brands).
All in all though, I'd say WAM might use a heavier gauge of steel and the overall build quality is probably a little more durable than the JeepSteel bumper; but then you have to take into consideration the price difference as well. Thanks for sharing your insight.
