Gotta find the picture but someone did a kind of prototype of that kind of bumper on JF some time ago. I think they used one of those Smittybuilt Rockcrawler tube bumpers, the one that has a kind of basket for the front fogs. Anyway the whomever did it outlined filling the space between the tubes with lexan or something clear than taking a piece and angling it back over the front of the the grille guard ending up at the bottom of the hood.

Similar to Vikings fast back top? Or do you plan on rebuilding the rear roll bar?

I've been debating doing 33 Engineerings Aluminum Belly Pan and ditching the stocker. Save most 40lbs or so on that skid alone. Would be cool if there can be someone or some company to put out more Aluminum skids for Wranglers. The KJs are the only Jeeps I know of with that kind of aftermarket.
