Merideth: If you're looking for an affordable winch and front bumper combo that will up the utility and protection of your 2020 or newer JT Gladiator, this Barricade Trail Force HD front bumper with the 9500-pound winch will be a great addition to your JT. Now, as you can see, this kit will come with a heavy-duty front bumper to offer solid protection for your off-road adventures, and a winch here for any recovery situation that you may come across while on the trail. This will also just be all around a great choice if you want more of an off-road appearance to your JT, and you want an all-in-one kit that's going to complete that look.The bumper will feature a mid-width yet high-clearance design, offering a good balance of coverage and maneuverability. Now, the front bumper will also feature a bull bar for grille protection, two welded D-ring mounts, and D-rings capable of 9,500 pounds as far as load capacity is concerned, and cutouts for the factory fog lights.Now, on top of the bumper will be the winch plate for the included winch in the kit. Now, the winch will have a 9,500-pound pulling capacity perfect for the lighter to moderately armored gladiator, a steel cable, and everything to mount it up, and operate it, including a 4-way roller fairlead, a hook, and a wired remote with a 12-foot lead for safe distance winching.When it comes to the construction of the bumper, this will be made of a 5.32-inch mild-steel plate construction and tubing that is 2 inches by 0.12 or 12 hundredth of an inch for reliable durability. Now, the bumper will also have a nice textured black powder coat finish on top to protect the steel underneath. Now, the winch will be durable as well with a steel construction that I mentioned before while featuring a three-stage planetary gearbox, a 195 to 4 to 1 gear ratio, and a two-way drum braking system for reliable operation.Like I mentioned before, this will be an affordable choice at about $850 for the entire kit. Now compared to other bumper and winch combos, these will be more of an entry-level option if you don't need all the additional bells and whistles that the other choices come with like auxiliary lighting, synthetic rope, or even wireless remotes. Now I think if you're just looking for an affordable choice, you want that solid utility, and a complete package for the front end of your JT, then this is going to be the kit for you.Now install will be a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter being pretty straightforward, but because this is a two-in-one kit, this is going to take you about three hours to get the job done with some basic hand tools. At this point, we can head over to the shop and check out the detailed breakdown of the install, and what that looks like step by step. So, that's going to wrap it up for me. Let's go ahead and get into it.Man: Tools required for this install include an impact gun, an electric ratchet, a couple different sized hand ratchets, a 14-millimeter, and 11/16 wrench, a 5/8 ratcheting wrench, a clip remover tool, flathead screwdriver, needle nose pliers, a couple different sized extensions, a swivel adapter, an 8, 12, 13, 14, 16, and18-millimeter socket, the included Allen wrench, a Phillips head drill bit, and a T20 Torx bit.What's up, guys? Today we're installing a front bumper on our Gladiator, so let's get started. So, our first step to uninstalling our factory bumper is to remove our splash guard, it's held in by 8 push clips and 2 8-millimeter bolts, so we'll grab an 8-millimeter socket for our bolts and a clip remover tool for our clips.So, our first step is to remove these 2 8-millimeter bolts, and now we can remove our push clips. Now coming back up top, right in between our bumper and our grille, we have two more push clips that we have to remove. So, once again, I'll grab that clip remover tool and pop these out. Next, we can come behind the bumper on the passenger side. We have to disconnect our connector for our fog lights. So, we'll press in back here, and disconnect our harness.So, now staying on the passenger side, right by where we disconnected our fog light harness, we can remove this 16-millimeter bolt as well as these two 18-millimeter nuts. Now for the top nut, we're going to leave that threaded on a few threads, and just to hold everything in place while we work on the other side. So, we'll take that 16-millimeter socket to remove our first bolt. And then we'll grab our 18-millimeter socket to remove our two nuts. And then once again, up top, we're gonna leave it on a few threads just to hold everything in place.Now coming to the inside of our passenger frame rail, we have the same setup with a 16-millimeter bolt and two 18-millimeter nuts. So, once again, we'll grab that 18 or 16-millimeter socket for the bolt, and then we'll swap out to our 18-millimeter socket for our nuts. And on the inside of our frame rail, we can fully remove both of our nuts since we have that one supporting the weight on the other side. And then we can slide our bracket out of the way.And once we're done with the passenger side, we can repeat those same steps on the driver's side. So, now we can go ahead and remove our two nuts that we have left supporting the bumper and fully remove it. I'll set our bracket off to the side. So, now with our factory bumper removed, we need to remove our fog lights as well as our fog light harness. Now to do that, we have two 13-millimeter bolts on each side here to remove this metal bracket. That'll expose our wire harness underneath. Then we can grab a clip remover tool to remove all of our clips, and then finally remove our fog light.So, now we can grab a 13-millimeter socket to get these bolts out. And once we have our four bolts removed, we can pull our bracket out of the way. So, now we can start by disconnecting our connector from our fog light. There's just a little tab on the top side that you press down and it'll pop right out. And then we'll grab a clip remover tool to pop out all of our clips. And this thing is free, so you can just slide that out of the way, and give yourself some more room. And then we'll just disconnect our other connector and our harness is free.Next, we can remove our fog light. We have three T20 screws holding this in. So, we'll grab a T20 Torx bit to take these out. And then we can do that same thing on the other side. So, now our first step is to install our fog lights into our new bumper. So, we're gonna lay it down in place, and then we're gonna be installing our button head screws, with our included Allen wrench. And then we can repeat that same process on the other side.Next, we can install our two mounting studs per side. These are what's gonna go through the frame horn to mount our bumper to the truck. So, we can slide them in this access hole. The stud's gonna go to the top, and the threaded hole is gonna be on the bottom. And then we can repeat that same process on the other side. So, now we're ready to install our front bumper. Now on the backside of our studs that we installed, we're going to be putting a flat washer, a lock washer, and a nut. And for the threaded holes, we're going to be inserting our M12 bolt with a lock washer and a flat washer.So, now once you got yourself a buddy, we can grab our bumper and lift it onto the truck, and get our hardware installed from the backside. So, now coming back behind the bumper, we have our bolt with our lock washer and flat washer going into our threaded hole, and then on the top stud, we have our flat washer, lock washer, and nut. These are both 19 millimeters, so I'm going to grab a 19-millimeter socket with a swivel adapter just to get more access in here to tighten these down.So, now we can come on the other side of the bolts we just tightened, and we have two more that we can tighten up with our 19-millimeter socket. And then we can repeat that same process on the other side. So, now we can begin to assemble our winch. The first thing we're gonna do is install our nuts. Now we have four holes on the bottom that our bolts are gonna come through the bottom up into our winch. So, we're gonna install these nuts into our little square holes here.And now we can lay the winch onto our bumper and start getting our bolts installed from the bottom. So, now we have our winch laid down onto our bumper. Now you don't have to worry about getting the holes perfectly lined up here, because once we go underneath to install our bolts, we can take a screwdriver, poke it up through that hole to straighten everything out.So, now coming back underneath the truck, we can line up our holes. Once again, if your nut isn't lining up, you can get a screwdriver up in there, just to kind of adjust it and get it sitting right. And then we can install our bolts with our lock washer and flat washer. And then we can tighten these up with a 16-millimeter socket. Now for the ones towards the front, I'm going to use a swivel socket, just because we can't get on there completely straight. So, now once we have our winch mounted, our next step is to install our fairlead.So, we have our bolt with our washer that's gonna be going through the front, and then we have a lock washer and a nut on through the backside. And then we can grab a 5/8 ratcheting wrench for our bolt side, and 11/16 wrench for our nut side. So, now our next step is to mount our control box. This is gonna sit right on top of our winch here. We have these two screws in the back that are gonna go underneath of this silver rod to tighten it down, clamp it into place. So, we'll hook the front on first. Slide the back over. Get our wires out of the way. And then we can go back, tighten these screws down by hand as much as we can. And then I'll grab a Philips head drill bit just to finish it off.So, now we can go in and hand tighten down our two screws. I'm just gonna grab Phillips head drill bit just to twist it in the rest of the way. So, now we can start the wiring for our winch. The first thing we're going to do is grab the shorter of our two red cables. That's going to go to this first terminal with the red little boot. So, we can twist off our nut, pull off one of our washers. And slide that on, put our washer back on, and then our nut. And then next we'll grab our black wire with our yellow boot. That's gonna go to the yellow terminal. Once again pull off one of those washers. Put that down on top, replace our washer, replace our nut.And then for our next terminal, we're going to be connecting our short black wire. Now we do have a very thin short black wire. This one is not going to go here. We're going to save that one for later. We'll pop that down once again and replace our washer, replace our nut. And then we can grab a 14-millimeter socket to tighten these up. Now we don't want to go super tight with these. We just want to snug them up a little bit. And then once that's done, we can slide our protective boot over top of our terminals.So, now we can come to our bottom terminal here. We're going to be installing our long black cable, as well as that skinny one that we mentioned earlier. So, I'm just gonna drape this over from the back of the bumper. And then we can spin off our nut and washer. Get our cables on there, and then we can reinstall our washer. And finally, reinstall our nut. So, now since we have a tight clearance under here, we're going to grab a 14-millimeter wrench to tighten this one up. Once again, you just want to get it snug. You don't want to over-tighten this.So, now we can run the longer power and ground wire up behind our grille and into our engine bay. To make that a little easier, I have a tube that we can shove down through this opening, and then we'll tape our two wires to the end and pull it back through. Once you have that through on the bottom, we can take our two wires, and we'll grab a piece of tape. The tape goes to our tube. Might be easier to do that one at a time, so we'll pull that ground up, and then go back down for our power wire.And now to neatly run these to our battery, we're going to go underneath of the air intake and around this rubber. And then we'll do the same thing with our negative. And next, we can connect these to our battery terminals. So, now we'll connect our positive and negative. So, we'll grab a 12-millimeter socket to remove one of our nuts. And then we'll get our nut threaded back on, and tighten that back down with that same 12-millimeter socket. And then we can switch to our 13 for our negative, so I'll add our negative onto our post. Thread our nut back on, and tighten that down with a 13-millimeter socket.And now once you have both of your wires connected, we can clean up our positive a little bit. Let's hook it down to keep it out of the way, and we can slide our boot back into place. And now over here, you can pull some slack to be able to tuck these under the fender to keep it out of the way. So, next up we can install our D-rings. Now we can just unscrew this piece here. Slide it over a hook. And I thread that in. And we'll just do that same thing on this side.Next, we can install our hook. So, this is gonna go right in between the cable here. We're gonna push that pin through. And then on the other side, we have a hole for a cotter pin. We'll slide that in. And then we can bend our edges backwards with a pair of needle-nosed pliers. So, now we can come back underneath the truck to reinstall our fog light harness. So, we're gonna run this over our frame to the other side, and then we can reconnect our main harness, then we can plug in our fog light. And then we can plug in our fog light the same way on the other side. So, that'll wrap up this review and install of the Barricade Trail Force HD Front Bumper with a 9500-pound winch for your 2020 and newer Jeep Gladiator JT.
