Hey, what's up, guys? I'm Ryan, from Extreme Terrain. And today, I'm here with a Barricade Extreme HD Front Bumper, fitting your 2007 to 2018 Wrangler JK. This is gonna be for the JK owner that is looking for a unique and aggressive winch-compatible front bumper to upgrade their off-roading rig with. This bumper is gonna add a ton of strength to the front end and functionality with its aggressive angular design and heavy-duty construction. This is perfect for the nighttime adventure seeker as it allows you to switch over your factory fog lights and mount additional lighting. This is made from heavy-duty steel plating and tubing for strength and it has an aggressive black powder coating that's gonna protect your investment from the elements. This is a relatively easy to install bumper as it comes with everything needed and it even reuses the factory mounting points, making for a very easy install. This is reasonably priced on the site as far as these bumpers go of the same design and at just over $400, I think this is a great option to go with if you're looking for that full frontal protection, as well as some additional clearance. As far as install goes, I'm gonna give this one out of three wrenches since you can install this in about two hours using basic hand tools. Now with that being said, let's hop into the install.So the first thing we'll need to do is remove our factory bumper. And now if you have an untouched bumper, you'll have a frame cover up here. This is removed with two push pins. And you'll actually have a splash guard down there. There's just a couple of push pins to pull those out. We already have all those out so we're gonna start with unbolting our bumper. We're gonna use an 18-millimeter socket to take the eight nuts off the back. So once you get the outside nuts off, you can do the inside nuts. So, on some models, you're gonna have a canister here to access these two nuts on the inside of the driver side frame rail. It'd be a good idea to remove this frame cover, that way you can access them from the top. So, once you're getting this last nut off, you wanna keep a hand on the bumper as it's ready to come off and then we're gonna unplug our fog lights right before we remove it. So we've already extended our fog light wires, just so we can pull this bumper up and tilt it, and show you how to do this. However, there's gonna be a little tab on the back side of this. All you're gonna do is push that tab in and you can unplug these lights. Most likely, you'll have to do this before you remove the bumper as there won't be enough wire length. So we're gonna do the same thing on the other side. And once you get both of those disconnected, you're ready to remove your bumper. So before we get this bumper installed, I just wanna take a moment to tell you what this thing is made of, what it's gonna do for your Jeep, and how it compares to your stock one. Now the stock one is plastic. There's not really too much structural integrity there. It's pretty much for aesthetics. If you're looking for something that's a little more stronger, a more aggressive-looking and has more functionality, you wanna look at an aftermarket bumper such as this. This Barricade bumper is made from heavy-duty steel plating. It has a very aggressive angular design. This design allows for better approach angles as it has this high tapered ends, it's gonna clear up the wheel well and just allow you to drive that tire up on rocks or any obstacles that you may encounter on those tough trails. Now, just like your stock bumper, this bumper is a full-width bumper. So you're gonna get that full frontal protection as well as higher clearance. On top of it being a full-width bumper, you have this welded-in bullbar. This bar is going to add even more protection for your grille, whether you're driving through brush or anything that you may encounter on those trails.Not only that, but this bullbar has tabs on top you can mount extra lighting. Now, this bumper also has a built-in winch plate and this winch plate will allow you to run a variety of winches up to 12,000 pounds. And not only that, but it's a low rise mount. That means that the winch is gonna sit lower in the bumper and it's gonna provide more air flow through your grille, and not really gonna block too much, which is better for that trail riding. Now, on top of allowing you to add a winch, which is a great recovering point and a great thing to have when you're traveling through those trails, this also has welded D-ring mounts. This is another great recovery point, whether you're pulling someone out or you're getting pulled out of a sticky situation. Now, our new bumper does not come with fog lights, however, it does accept the factory fog lights. So that's gonna be an easy swap and it's gonna save you money from having to buy aftermarket fog lights. Now, this whole thing is powder coated black, not only for an aggressive look but for some additional corrosion protection. So like I said, we do need to switch over our fog lights so I'm gonna show you how to do that now, then we'll get this installed and show you what it looks like on the Jeep.So with our stock bumper on the table, the next thing we're gonna do is remove those factory fog lights. Now, you're gonna have four screws on each fog light. We're gonna use a Philips head screwdriver to get those out. So the next thing we're gonna do is install our factory fog lights into our new bumper and you're gonna get a series of little tiny hardware to install these, and I'll show you how to do that right now. So we're gonna insert our light into the new fog light holes and we're gonna place a little tiny bolt through. And then on the back side, we're gonna install a flat washer, a lock washer, and a little tiny nut. So, once you get all that hardware in, we're gonna use a 2.5-millimeter Allen key and a 7-millimeter wrench to tighten everything up. Now, we'll do the same thing on the other side. So, at this point in time, the next thing we're gonna do is install this bumper. I would recommend grabbing a friend and getting your hardware ready. So for the outside two, you're gonna have studs. They're gonna get a flat washer, a lock washer, and a nut. So the two inside are going to get bolts so you're gonna do a lock washer and then a washer on that. Make sure that the lock washer is in between the bolt head and the flat washer.Once you get all of your hardware installed, we're gonna go around tighten everything up with a 16-millimeter socket. So with our new bumper, we have moved our fog lights to the outside. Barricade provides you with extensions for earlier and later models. We have already extended our fog light harness so we're just gonna go ahead and plug these back in. Then we'll plug our other side in. So the last thing we'll need to do is install our D-rings. You're just gonna unscrew this center pin, place this over the D-ring mount and then just screw that pin back in. To make sure that these don't fall off, you can grab them with Channellocks and just tighten that down or you can actually stick a Phillips head screwdriver in here and tighten it down. So that's gonna wrap up my review and install. For more videos like this, check us out at extremeterrain.com.
