    Video Review & Installation

    Hey guys, I'm Kevin from Extreme Terrain and this is my review of the Barricade Extreme HD Stubby Front Bumper. Now, a stubby bumper is a dedicated hard core wheeling bumper, looks really cool and has a very distinct purpose in a wheeling application. Basically, it tucks the bumper in and allows full articulation in droop or compression for your front suspension along with giving you the protection of a hard-core front bumper with winch mount in this case.Now, a lot of guys will kind of trick their way into it. They'll take the stock bumpers, stuff them in. You can find these pictures on the internet but, it's plastic. Let's face it. It doesn't offer much protection but offers a cool look. So there's an alternative.Having said that, this bumper has all the features that you'd expect to find in a piece costing a lot more. But it's also got a few limitations. In order to really check them out we're going to throw it on the vehicle, take another look.Removing the stock bumper, if you've never done it before, can be a bit of a challenge. Mostly because it's hard seeing maybe find some of the fasteners that are tucked in tight. But you'll figure it out and it might take you an hour or so to remove the stock on if you've never done it before. To install the stubby, you'll need a metric socket set and possibly some combination wrenches. We use the 19 millimeter socket and the 19 as well as the swivel just to kind of speed things up.The cordless impact is a nice tool to have around but it's not absolutely necessary. This stubby bumper is heavy so unless you have a gef, get a buddy to install it. But it's really no trouble to assemble and bolt on.Our JK's missing the factory fog lights for some reason but if yours are still there, you can unplug the harnesses if you don't want to run them, or find a creative way to mount them under the bumper or just upgrade to aftermarket lights. But the stubby front bumper is designed for maximum protection while giving you maximum clearance. And here's what we're talking about. Right here, we are wide open for an unlimited wheel and tire choice and we're not going to ever interfere with the side of the bumper. So we really got a lot of options here, especially with an extended fender.We've got nice approach angles here, it's all trapezoid looking here. It's very, very cool and very stylish but the important thing is that it's out of the way of the wheel and tire while you're wheeling. Here you've got a built in recovery point with a D-Ring and a 7H tab that's fully welded in for good strength and the two inch DOM bar on top here can be used as a recovery point if you're very careful about where you pull. From here you may bend a thing if it's an extreme pull, but just know that going in.The lining tabs are designed to relocate your factory fog lights or install the racks in 21 and a half inch LED light bar. Both of which are good options if you want a fog light and we all want to accessorize and upgrade our lighting systems. But here's one of the coolest things; the recessed winch mount. It's fully plated in, it's a heavy duty recess winch mount and it doesn't interfere with air flow going into the radiator. Now, I wish they would have figured out a way to put the factory fog light mounts here, but they didn't. So we got what we got. And some 2012 models, you got a pump that you got to relocate and you can get that kit online as well. Now barricade has a nice warranty. They have a three-year limited warranty. So it's good to know that they stand behind what they sell. So if you've got an O7 to 16JK, you want to beef up the looks of the front end with a whole lot of function at not a crazy price, well the Extreme HD Stubby Front Bumper might be for you.Just make sure that you understand that you've got to do something about your factory fog lights, but you've got options for accessory lighting to round up this package. So that's my product review of the Barricade Extreme HD Stubby Front Bumper from Extreme Terrain.
