    What bumpers have you been looking at?
    Headlights - jw speaker is the best but expensive
    Trucklite - more cost effective still a pretty good pattern.

    Don't forget the Quadratec lights. From what I have seen, better output that the truck lights.

    How much many do you want to spend and how strong/heavy to you want to go?
    Everything is stronger than factory. Quadratech is a good place to start. Just Google JK bumpers and see what pops up.

    Smittybuilt has a good price but they are lighter than other aftermarket bumpers.

    Teraflex, Poison spyder, Genright, Metal Cloak, Throttle down Kustoms, Blue torch and others are all big name bumpers that are very trail worthy, but come with big name prices. You could probably find a Custom family owned fab shop that makes excellent bumpers for less.

    If you are going to run or plan on running 37s or bigger and some hard wheeling I suggest getting stubby bumpers front and back (Front no wider than the grill, and back no wider than the body).

    Or if you are looking for clean lines that retain somewhat of a factory look, look at AEV and Warn.
