Nice bumper, not so nice fog light fitment.
I’m happy with the bumper. Solid, light weight, and looks great on the front of my Jeep. A couple of negatives though: First, the package was missing the recovery point plates. I was able to install everything but am waiting to get the missing items to complete the bumper. Second, the fog light fitment is really bad. For the JL they include some brackets but even without them it is clear that the tolerances for their welding are about 10mm off. Not a small amount. The fog lights don’t sit centered in the holes cut out of the bumper. Further, despite the instructions indicating that M6 bolts should be used to secure the fog lights, the kit only included M3 bolts with oversized washers so the bolt head doesn’t completely slip through the M6 hole. The M3 nuts were so small I eventually gave up and used zip ties instead. Much more secure than the included bolts. Other than that I’m a happy driver. Hoping to get the missing parts soon,Helpful (0)

Great bumper - easy install
Bumper looks great. Bumper is light weight with steel for the critical parts. Installation of the fog lights required a bit of creative interpretation because the instructions didn't match the interior lay out of the hole, but it was easy enough to figure out.Helpful (0)

Nice light bumper for basic protection
I received this for a Christmas present from my wife for my 2019 JL Sport. This is my 4th Wrangler (TJ, 2 JK, 1JL) and i have always wanted a bumper and a winch. The bumper is pretty light and easily put on with the help of an assistant to just get a couple of bolts lined up and started. After the bumper was off, it went on in about 45 minutes. The bumper removal video was from a JK so i just found a bumper removal from a 20XX JL. It was ok, i just had to figure out a few things. It took about 1.5 hrs between starting, looking at the videos and detaching the fog light wires. Speaking of which, if you put this bumper on a 2019 Sport S, you don't need the wire adapters. Next came the Barricade 9,500 lb. Winch w/ Synthetic Rope Item J100789 but that's in another reviewHelpful (3)

Extremely light weight and easy to install. 2019 JL Rubicon factory fog lights fit great with slight adjustments. Looks amazing on the Jeep. Followed the video instructions and had no issues with installation. Great addition to the RubiconHelpful (3)

Not so strong
I purchased this bumper thinking it would look great and provide support for a winch and not easily bend during off road activities. The winch is mounted, its a tight fit but the lower front slope is short, thin and bent during my first off road adventure, granted it was challenging with large rocks and other ares with deep mud but upon our successful arrival to the top of a mountain (11,665’) I found damage to the bumper and mud with shrub roots jammed in areas the bumper should have protected. Its an easy fix but I feel the bumper fell short of my expectations.Helpful (5)

Love the bumper!
Install was easy by myself. I do recommend having an adjustable height work stand ready to hold the bumper and winch plate up while you get the bolts in place. I also installed a SmittyBilt X20 winch and it fits, but is really close to the grille. Weight of the bumper is pretty low. Just wish they had a rear bumper that matches.Helpful (2)

Is there a skid plate for this bumper
With some modification, the Barricade skid plate(J123338-JL) will work with this item. The 4 way brackets would not be reused to get both items to work together.
What does the description mean by "excluding Rubicon models"? Will Rubicon LED fog lights not fit?
This Bumper is only compatible with the OEM LED Fog Lights, and Rubicon models fog lights will not fit.
Is it better to install first the winch on the bumper before installing the bumper on the Jeep, or is it better the install the winch after the bumper is installed on the Jeep?
I would recommend installing the bumper first then the winch.
