    Review & Installation Video

    Review & Install Video

    I'm Ryan from extremeterrain.com, and this is my review and installation of the Off Camber Fabrications by MBRP Front Bumper Grill Guard and Light Bar, fitting all 1997 to 2006 TJs with a factory front bumper. Today we're gonna talk through the installation of this grill guard, which is a very simple one out of three wrenches, because this is designed to bolt directly onto your factory front bumper. So you can get this install done in under an hour. But we'll talk more about that in just a minute. We're also gonna talk through the construction and a few of the features of this light bar.This is for those of you who are interested in upgrading the factory front bumper on your TJ to one that has more aftermarket off-road accessories and benefits. If you don't need additional tow points, and lights, and the protection from a big, heavy plate steel front bumper, but you do wanna change up the look of the front of your Jeep and give you a spot to mount two lights, that's where this grill guard and light bar come in. This is going to be significantly less expensive than upgrading a front bumper. And as I said before, if you don't need all the other features of a front bumper, you might not wanna spend that money. And, again, that's where this comes in. It changes the look and gives you a spot to mount lights, while saving you money over buying a whole bumper.As for construction, this is three-inch round mandrel bent tubing that is covered in a textured black powder coat finish. The finish on this is a very nice finish. This is going to hold up really well over time. It's not going to rust or corrode, especially if you take care of it. Now, as I said before, this does have two light mount tabs welded right onto it, which allow you to run up to two eight-inch round lights. That's how they're spaced out. They'll let you run some fairly large lights, but, of course, you can also run some small LED cubes on here, or a light bar if you choose to. However you wanna set this up, you have the ability to. One of the things I really like about this grill guard is that it does have two holes drilled in the bottom of it, with two rubber grommets that allow you to run the wiring for your lights inside of your tube, down to your bumper, making the wiring really, really clean.As for the install, as I said before, this is a very simple one out of three wrench installation. This does come with all the hardware that you need to get it installed, and you can get it done in about an hour in your driveway. All you need to do is remove the four large Torx bolts that are attaching your factory front bumper to the frame rails. Those are the large bolts that are right on top of the bumper, going through the bumper and into the frame rails.Now, these might be a little bit difficult to remove, especially if you've never removed them before. But make sure you spray them with a good penetrating oil well before you get started, and they should break loose for you. If you have the factory tow hooks installed on your TJ, that's fine as well. Those bolts hold those tow hooks in place. Once you remove the bolts, remove the tow hooks as well, and then you can get to installing your new grill guard. Now, out of the box, you will have to attach the brackets onto your new grill guard. They are marked left and right, so make sure you get the right one in the right place. Once you have the grill guard completely assembled, you'll simply set it on top of your bumper, aligning the factory holes in the bumper with the brackets on the grill guard, and reinstall those four Torx bolts that you just removed, including your tow hooks if you have them and if you want to reinstall them. Then it's just a matter of tightening down those bolts, and you're done.While you're installing this, if you are going to be running lights, it is a good idea to run all of the wiring while your grill guard is on the ground. It just makes it a little bit easier to fish your wires through the grommet holes and down through the end of your grill guard. But other than that, again, under an hour. You won't need any specialty tools, just a Torx bit, and you can get this installed very easily.I think that this grill guard is appropriately priced. This comes in a little under $200 for a tubular grill guard, but this is a very well put together piece, and it is going to be completely bolt on. This includes the holes and the grommets for all of your wiring, so I do think that this is worth the price. And when you consider how much less expensive this is going to be than purchasing a full bumper, I think that this is absolutely worth it, and, obviously, a bumper is going to have some additional benefits, but if you're not looking for those benefits and all you want is a grill guard and a way to mount some lights, this is a way to do it in an inexpensive way.So if you're looking to add a grill guard with some light mounts onto your factory front TJ bumper, this is going to be a very easy to install way to do that, that is very well built and is gonna hold up well over time. So that's my review of the Off Camber Fabrications by MBRP Front Bumper Grill Guard and Light Mount, fitting all 1997 to 2006 TJs that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.

        Will this fit around a WARN winch center mounted on the front?

        • The Off Camber Fabrications by MBRP Black Front Bumper Grille Guard/Light Bar (97-06 Wrangler TJ) should allow for a winch to be installed, however, this unit does utilize the same holes as the winch plate. Some applications may require modification or additional hardware for a proper install with a winch.

            My new grill guard

            This was one of my best upgrades, it was an easy installation and nice upgrade. I really love how heavy duty this grill guard is and I can put on more lights later. Overall I am very satisfied and my 2005 Jeep Wrangler LJ looks great.

            Bolt threads don't match up.

            I purchased this and the first time the bolts did not screw in so I exchanged it. The second one still didn't screw in and ended up breaking the bolt off.

            Here’s the Bolt Size You Need

            This light bar looks great and is a nice option for adding additional lighting or a brush guard look if you want to keep the oem bumper like I did on my ‘97 TJ. The only problem is this ships with the wrong size bolts. It ships with SAE 1/2” coarse thread bolts. What it requires is M12x1.75x40. Hopefully this info helps make your trip to the hardware store a little quicker. Remember to use some liquid wrench on those tow hook bolts if you haven’t taken them off before!

            Easy install but the hardware that came with it wasn’t the right size. Quick trip to store solved that but just a pain. If it wasn’t for that I would have given it 5 stars

            Trip to Hardware Store Required

            This is a well made guard. It looks great on the TJ. Good blend of old school style with modern finishes. Only issue was the supplied bolts were too short to thread into the tube. They were not even long enough to touch the threads. Had to purchase and paint, one inch longer bolts.

            It’s good!

            Gave a 2 star on the fit because of the hardware issue. Bolts not long enough, this should be fixed by manufacturer. No huge deal as I knew this going in, just thought it would be rectified.

            Frustrating and time consuming

            The bolts they ship you to attach the mounting brackets to the light bar are too short. Extremely frustrating considering this cosmetic stock bumper attachment was almost $200. But no problem, the instructions said the bolts are 1/2 inch bolts so I go to Lowe’s to pick up longer 1/2 inch bolts. Come to find out, the bolt is not a 1/2 inch bolt. Seems to be a metric size. Outrageously frustrated with this product. Something that should take less than 30 minutes has taken an afternoon because the manufacturer sent inadequate hardware

            I should have read the other reviews!!

            I guess they don't take the reviews here serious- mine was shipped with bolts that are too short as well- look through the other reviews- has happened before and no one has corrected it yet!! Tired of spending money with extreme terrain and finding items shipped either have incorrect parts or missing parts!!!!

            OCF Grille Guard/Light bar

            Very well made, looks great. Didn't put light on mine yet but probably will down the road. The bolts provided are too short to reach the threads no matter what you tried (at least on the one I was shipped) so I wouldn't be surprised if you also have to look around your garage for two body bolts like the ones provided just longer. Otherwise very satisfied, just kinda ridiculous when you get such a nice product and they send you inadequate hardware.
