Simple installation for anyone.
Ryan: This DV8 Off-Road LFS-7 steel mid-width front bumper with LED lights is for those of you that have a 2007 to 2018 JK or 2018 JL that are looking for an aftermarket front bumper that's going to provide a lot more features, some protection, and also a completely different look to the front of your Jeep. This is gonna be a pretty easy bumper to install. However, the lights do require some wiring to get them hooked up so I'm gonna go with a two out of three wrenches for this installation and we'll talk more about that in just a second.Now, this bumper is going to provide some additional features like I mentioned before, some protection, some off-road-ready features, and of course these lights. Now, these lights are going to be more of a marker light than they are something that's going to project and throw a lot of light out in front of your Jeep, so just know that ahead of time. These aren't going to be the same as mounting a set of spot beam or flood beam aftermarket auxiliary lights on your Jeep. These are going to be a little bit more of a marker light, but that's okay, it adds to the style of this front bumper. Overall, I think that this is a fairly-priced bumper for all of the features that are packed into it.As it says in the name, this is a mid-width front bumper so this isn't going to be quite as wide as your factory front bumper or, of course, as wide as a full-width front bumper but it's also not as stubby as a stubby front bumper. So generally a stubby bumper will come out just past where the D-rings are on this and this one, of course, is gonna have a little bit of a wider wing to it, making it that mid-width bumper and that allows them to squeeze additional features into this, as well as offering a little bit more protection than a stubby bumper. Now, a lot of guys do wanna run a stubby bumper because they don't want any interference issues between a big 37-inch tire and their bumper. With a mid-width you may end up getting into some of that, so if you have a 37 just know that. If you're running 35s you shouldn't have any issue with this bumper or with any other steel mid-width bumper.As far as features goes, again steel bumper covered in a textured black powder coat finish to help it resist any sort of rust and corrosion. This does have two D-ring mounts and it does come with the D-rings which is a pretty nice feature. Right in the center here, you're going to have a winch mount that's going to hold any standard mounting winch, and of course, your fairlead mount here, and then you are going to have four LED lights that are going to be recessed right into this front bumper. And those are going to be a little bit more of a marker light, like I said before, and you are going to have to wire those up. Up here on top of the bumper, you're going to have this hoop and this does have two additional auxiliary light mounts on it, just regular light mount tabs that will accept any regular single post light mount, so you can add even additional lighting up on those tabs.This is going to come in at right around that $415 mark and there are some bumpers on the market that are going to look and function similar to this one that are a little bit less expensive. I do think you're getting a pretty high-quality of build with this bumper. So if you like this look, if you like these functions, I do think this is going to be worth the cost. Now, somebody from the install team will show you how to get this installed on your Jeep.Man: First thing you're gonna wanna do is unplug your factory fog lights. You're gonna wanna squeeze the tab on the back of your light and pull away from the vehicle. Now you're gonna remove the 8 18-millimeter nuts that are located four on each side of the Jeep. Once you have your factory fog lights disconnected and the 8 18-millimeter nuts off the back of your bumper, you're gonna go ahead and pull it away from the Jeep. Now that you have your bumper off, you're gonna go ahead and remove the frame cover, using a screwdriver or a removal tool.Now we're ready to do the wiring portion of the fog lights on your bumper. As you can see, our fog light harness has already been cut into, so we're just gonna put the corresponding connectors on the bumper. Now for you doing this at home, all you're gonna wanna do is cut your harness about two inches back from the plug and wire in whatever connector you would like to use.Now that you've made the appropriate electrical connections, you're ready to put your bumper on the Jeep. Using the provided hardware, you're gonna secure the three 19-millimeter nuts to the backside of the bumper as well as a 19-millimeter bolt that goes on the inside of the frame. When installing your hardware, you're gonna wanna leave it a little loose until you have the bolt in on the inside of the frame.Now you're gonna go ahead and put your bolt in directly above the nut we just installed on the inside of the frame. Once you have all four secured on the one side of your Jeep, you're gonna go ahead and do the same thing on the other side and then come back and tighten it all up. Once you have your six nuts and two bolts installed you're gonna go ahead and tighten everything up. Once you have your bumper secured to the frame, you're gonna go ahead and connect your fog lights. Once you have them connected you're gonna go ahead and wrap them in electrical tape as well as tuck them up out of the way from any potential hazards.Ryan: Now that we have our bumper mounted as well as the lights wired up, that wraps up our review and install.

DV8 Off-Road LFS-7
In the details this item doesn't explain that a JL adapter is required for installation. I disconnected my OEM bumper and the bolts in the DV8 bumber are about a 16th of an inch off. Ive order the adapter and still waiting on deliver for almost a week for the part to arrive. the quality of the bumper is excellent ... I just cant install it until the adapter plate arrives. On the box it states it is for a JK model. I've called for explanation and was told it would fit. NOT THE CASE.Helpful (0)

Fit pretty well out of the box, did have to drill out frame brackets one drill size as I recall. I did not need the extra cost spacer, 3 washes on each stud and its a perfect fit. It was very well packed for shipping. Install time was about 2 hours including the frame brackets and hillbilly engineering. The lights are very bright and throw a very wide beam, down low just where its needed. The only complaint I had was the round lights got scratched up during shipping but DV8 replaced them.Helpful (2)

1st of all this is a JK front bumper you will need The DV8 JK to JL bumper plate to install. 2nd thing is the L.E.D lights will not work without using a bigger fuse. Other than that I love the bumper!!! It’s different and I like itHelpful (5)

Do not recommend
The lights needed to be spliced and the bumper did not fit on my Jeep. The bolts for the bumper do not align to the holes on the frame. This bumper was the biggest waste of time.Helpful (8)

Does not fit 2018 JLU
The frame mounting bolts do not line up appropriately so I was unable to install. About a 1/4 too far in. They also expect you to use factory nuts on the bumper bolts, but they are the wrong thread, so even if the bumper fit, there is not the necessary hardware. The fog lights are not plug and play which is what I was told. You have to splice them in.Helpful (20)
I have a 2018 JL Rubicon Limited. Do I need the JK to JL Front Bumper Adapter Bracket?
DV8's JK to JL Adapter Bracket Kit is not required for your vehicle.
Is this product imported?
I use a blue ox tow bar with D Ring Adapters to tow my jeep behind my RV. Will I be able to hook this bumper up to my tow bar to tow my new 2019 Wrangler Unlimited?
The DV-8 bumpers have not been rated to be used in a flat tow situation.
Does this front bumper Item J105067-JL work with a base plate for a tow package? i.e. to tow behind an RV that requires a baseplate to be installed? Also, is there a version of this bupmper that does not have a bull bar?
This is not compatible with the base plate for a tow package. We do not have another version of this bumper without the bull bar at this time.
