Jeep Cherokee KL Bumper Design

I'm starting this thread to determine interest in a new bumper design for all 2014-2017 Cherokee KL variants. Last Fall I floated this idea past the wonderful folks at Expedition One. See attached files. Now, as the design is progressing, Sarah and James would like to know how much interest there is in the KL community. If you are interested, please send Sarah an email and encourage them to bring the new bumper to market. Please visit the Exp-One website for outstanding examples of their professional craftsmanship.

Happy Trails,
Snowhawk

If they make it with the ability to add a winch that would be great.

If they make it tech package compatible as well, it'll sell. The last survey I took via Facebook across several groups results in upwards of 150 people interested in a full bumper replacement.

isn't there a variant of this sold in australia? all someone really needs to do is get their hands on that design, or see if that company will ship internationally. but to be honest, i saw pictures of it on an actual car and wasn't a very big fan. to each their own.

The one in Australia is a giant roo bar (bull bar). It's an add-on over the original bumper. I'm hoping this design here is a full bumper replacement.

This design looks like it would add front recovery points to those without TH's as well. For ADI and ADII KLs that would be a big bonus.

I have a Latitude and this definitely grabbed my attention. That upgrade in clearance and approach angle is major. Is there a render of what this actually looks like? If it isn't absolutely hideous I'd certainly be interested.

Depending on price, I'd be interested.

Would there be options? Variances between versions?

I'll send her an e-mail tomorrow... I'd like to see something around $800 (or less, of course) but would certainly be willing to pay more if it's direct bolt-on. Shipping to Alaska will bite me in the butt but it would be worth it!

It looks like some significant trimming of the existing fascia and fenders will need to happen to make this work, unless the front is redesigned upwards to hold the headlights.
