I'm Ryan from extremeterrain.com and this is my review of the Barricade Double Tubular Front Bumper with Winch Cutout, fitting all 1987 to 2006 Jeeps. This is available in both the textured black finish that you see here and a polished stainless finish. And the bumper's also available without the winch cutout if that's what you'd prefer. This bumper is for those of you who prefer the slightly old-school look of a tubular bumper and don't have the need for the additional protection and the additional features that a more heavy duty off road bumper provides. While this does have a cutout for a winch, it does not provide you with a winch plate, so that's something you're going to need to add. This bumper is fairly priced, in my opinion, for what it is, but it's also going to be a lot cheaper than other bumpers because it doesn't have quite as many features. This bumper is built with 3-inch tubular stainless steel that's going to do a good job of resisting both rust and corrosion. As I said before, it's available in two different finishes, either the textured black powdered coat finish that you see here or a polished stainless finish. So there's an option no matter what look you're going for on your Jeep. Like I said before, there are a few things that these bumpers don't offer when you compare it to a heavy duty off road bumper. This bumper does not have any recovery points on the front of it, it does not have any light mounts either for the factory fog lights or for auxiliary lighting, and it does not offer a lot of protection that a plate steel off road bumper would. So if this is what you're looking for, this is a nice option. However, if you need some of those other features and you're willing to pay for them, there are other options available. Getting this bumper installed on your Jeep is going to be pretty easy, although it will vary depending on whether you're installing it on a YJ or on a TJ. You'll have to remove the bolts holding your factory bumper in place and then this will pop right on. This has a couple of tabs that will slide right over the frame horns and you'll use your factory hardware to secure it onto the Jeep. Depending on the type and the style of winch plate you're using, you may have to install the winch plate before or after installing the bumper and some trimming may be necessary. The whole installation for the bumper shouldn't take you more than an hour and you won't need any specialty tools. However, an electric or air impact gun will speed things along. Taking a look at the quality of this bumper, I would say it's definitely worth the price you pay for it. The price is, of course, lower than some of those more heavy duty off road bumpers that offer additional features, but when you compare this to other tubular bumpers on the market, I think it's really fairly priced and really well constructed. So if you like the old school look provided by a tubular bumper, and you don't have the need or the budget for something that provides more protection and has additional features, this is a well priced and well fitting bumper.So that's my review of the Barricade Double Tubular Front Bumper with Winch Cutout, fitting all 1987 to 2006 Wranglers, that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.
