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 want to run a stubby bumper because they don't want any interference issues between the 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 35's, 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 market light. Like I said before, 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. [inaudible 00:02:24] a light mount tab that will accept any regular single-post light mount, so you can add even additional lighting up on those tabs. This bumper is gonna run you $365. 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 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: The 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 eight 18-millimeter nuts that are located four on each side of the Jeep. Once you have your factory fog lights disconnected and the eight 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 2 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 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. Now that we have our bumper mounted, as well as the lights wired up, that wraps up our review and install. You can check out more at extremeterrain.com.
