Ryan: The RedRock 4 by 4 Attack Stubby Front Bumper with the Winch Mount is for those of you that have a 2018 and up JL that are looking for a bumper that's going to add some functionality to your Jeep and also drastically change up the look. This is going to be a pretty simple one out of three wrenches for the install. It's gonna bolt right in place of your factory front bumper, and we're gonna show you how to do it in just a second.So when you're shopping for bumpers, you're going to find a lot of different options out there and all of them are going to change up the look of your Jeep, add or subtract functionality and add or subtract protection. So which bumper you choose is really up to how you're gonna use your Jeep and what look you're trying to get. And of course, budget is going to play a role in that as well.So what you're going to find here is a steel bumper. So, of course, that's going to be different from your factory bumper because the factory one is plastic. This is going to be a steel bumper so it is going to hold up better if you make contact with anything, whether it be on the road or off-road.This is also going to be a stubby bumper so it's going to be a little bit shorter. That gives your Jeep a little bit more of an aggressive off-road style and it also allows you to run a slightly larger tire without having any interference issues with the front bumper. Now even some mid-width and full-width bumpers will have provisions for large tires, so you're not going to have issues but with a stubby, you know you're not gonna have any problems because it really opens up that whole area. This is going to stick out only a little bit past the frame horns.This is also going to add some other functionality. This is going to add D-rings up front so while you're not going to have your factory tow hooks anymore, a D-ring is even more functional in my opinion. If you're using something like a snatch strap where you actually want the line to be a little bit loose before you get a bit of a running start, this is going to ensure that the line doesn't pop off the hook during that process, where with a hook sometimes it can move around a little bit.As far as recovery, you're going to get a winch plate that's built right into this, also with a mount for the fairlead, this is going to hold up to a 12,000-pound winch so you're going to have plenty of strength there for additional recovery options. And this is going to include two holes here for your factory fog lights, and that's something that I always look for in a bumper and not every stubby bumper is going to have. You already have those lights. It's wired, you have the switching. Why not purchase a bumper that allows you to keep those factory fog lights and this allows you to do that.On top of those features, you're also going to have this hoop here. So the hoop adds a little bit of protection if you're running a really narrow trail and there's brush and branches and stuff, this is going to help them brush them away from hitting the grille but this is really more of an aesthetic thing than it is anything else. However, this does have also a couple of light mount tabs up on it and of course, those are going to be functional. So if you want to mount some additional auxiliary lighting, you're gonna be able to use those light mountain tabs right up on top of the hoop.So you are gonna get a lot with this bumper, a lot of function, completely change up the look of Jeep, add protection as well and it's going to do all of that at what I think is a pretty fair price. This is going to be right around that $250 mark, which, again, for a bumper that adds as much function as this I do think is a good deal. So I mentioned before this bolts right in place of your factory bumper. This is gonna be pretty easy installation. Let's show you how to do it.Man: Tools used for this installation are as follows. We have a small impact driver and a ratchet, a couple of different Allen keys, an adjustable wrench, a 17-millimeter wrench, an 18, 17, 16 and 13-millimeter socket, a T20 Torx bit, a panel pry tool, and a small flathead screwdriver.All right, now let's get started with the installation of our new bumper, but first, we got to get our old bumper out of the way. Now to do that, there's quite a few clips we're gonna have to disconnect. There's a couple screws and a few bolts. Now let's go ahead and get started.All right, now to get our front bumper off, we're gonna have to go ahead and get our splash guard out of the way first. And to do that, we're gonna use an 8-millimeter socket on our small nut driver here. Now you can do this with a regular ratchet or even a handheld nut driver. I prefer the electric, works just a little bit quicker. You're going to have two screws, there's one over here, one over here on this side. After that, we're gonna use a panel removal tool and remove about 10 clips that are up here that connect the splash guard to the bumper itself. We'll get that out of the way, off to the side, save that, sell it at a swap meet or something. We don't need that anymore with our new front bumper. After that, we'll get the eight bolts that secure our bumper to our frame and a few more clips up top.Now with your panel removal tool, we're gonna remove the eight clips that are down here on the bottom. All right, now once all the clips are removed, we can go ahead and slide our splash shield down. Now when removing the clips, make sure you keep a good handle on this because it will just fall down on top of you. All right, now with the use an 18-millimeter socket on our ratchet, we're gonna remove the eight nuts that secure our bumper to our frame rails. Now they're up inside the bumper, we're gonna do our best to show you where they're at, but you'll get the gist of it. Now with your 18-mil, go ahead and remove your four nuts on each side.All right, now back here on the top of our bumper, we have a few clips to remove. Now I'm gonna use my small flathead pocket screwdriver to remove those because they happen to be countersunk and my panel removal tool really just doesn't fit in its place. Now once we get our bumper off, we'll put it on the table and I'll show you how to disassemble our bumper to go ahead and get our fog lights and our fog light wiring harness out of it. Now you just lift up on the center of our clip. Clip should pop right out.We can go ahead and just go ahead and lift our bumper out. Now let's go ahead and get this on the table and I'll show you how to disassemble it to get your fog lights and harness out.All right, now to get our fog lights and our fog light harness out of our bumper, we're gonna have to take off a few of these covers that are on it. To begin, we're gonna take off all these clips that are back here, two 7-millimeter screws. We'll get the centerpiece out of the way, then we'll go ahead and get our two side pieces out, pop our fog lights out, then there's a few more covers we got to remove and we can get our harness out.Now with our center splash guard out of the way, we can go ahead and get our two bumper extensions off and we're just gonna use the same 7-millimeter socket that we use already with our same nut driver.And we'll just go ahead, unplug our fog light and we're gonna use a T20 Torx bit and take out the three retaining screws that hold our fog light in place. Now our fog light is ready to transfer over to our new bumper. All right, now we just have to remove the four 13-millimeter bolts that attach our steel bumper brace inside of our plastic bumper cover.All right, now with our harness exposed, we can go ahead and pop it out of our bumper cover. Now we're just gonna use our panel pry tool to remove the Christmas tree clips that hold them in place.All right, now with our factory bumper apart, we have our fog lights and our harness out. We can go ahead and get them installed in our new RedRock bumper. Now to do that, we're gonna utilize the two holes that come. We have our two inner holes, they are pre-threaded for the hardware that comes in the kit. Now don't forget your washers. We're gonna use our lock washers and our flat washers. And then for our single outside hole, we're gonna use that center one. We're gonna use the same bolt but we're actually gonna add a small nut to that. I really don't know the wrench size, it is very tiny so I'm going to use an adjustable to tighten it up. Now the kit comes with an Allen key to tighten all these down. I'm gonna go ahead and use my own on my small impact gun. But when using a small impact driver, you're going to want to remember that your housings on your fog lights are plastic so you don't want to be too aggressive with them. You really just want to snug them tight. You don't want to crank down on them because you don't want to crack these.Line you fog light up with the three holes and insert your hardware. Now, these bolts are small, so you're gonna want to go ahead and make sure you always start them by hand first. Gonna use our small nut and washer on the back of this one. With your really small wrench or your adjustable and your Allen key, go ahead and tighten this one down. Now when you're done with this one, go ahead and move to your other side and do the exact same steps.Now we're gonna go ahead and get our fog light harness plugged in. Now you're gonna make sure that your harness that plugs into your Jeep itself is on the driver side of your bumper when laying this out. Go ahead and plug both of your fog lights in. Now once your fog lights are plugged in, we have all this extra wire. What are we gonna do to that? We're gonna go ahead and wind it up and we're gonna zip tie it out of the way. This way it doesn't get damaged in any way because the last thing you want is anything electrical grounding out to a steel part of your vehicle. That could cause a major electrical problem with the rest of your car. With a couple zip ties, we can go ahead and zip tie all our wiring nice and neatly and out of the away.All right, now we're gonna go ahead and get our auxiliary light bar mounted up to the top of our bumper. Now, this part is optional. The kit also comes with block off plates if you choose to use those instead, but we're gonna go ahead and get this bar mounted up and to do that we're gonna take the foam pads that come in the kit, we're gonna stick them to the bottom. There's a little bit of an isolator. There's not metal the metal on the bumper. This way, if it ever for whatever reason starts to come loose on the trail, you don't hear it rattling around and it causes less friction on the top of your bumper so it doesn't cause any damage. Now we're gonna use hardware that comes in kit. You're gonna have three nuts and bolts on each side, and don't forget to use your lock washers. Let's go ahead and get this installed.Go ahead and line that up on the bottom of your pad and then just punch out the little foam holes so you can get your nut and bolt through. Remember, repeat that on both sides and pay close attention to your foam pads when installing them because the holes are a little offset. Let's go ahead and line the holes up on the top of your bumper, get one of your bolts installed. Don't forget your washers. Now just go ahead and repeat that process for all six bolts that hold our light bar on. Then we'll get it all snugged down. After that, we can get our new bumper on our Jeep.Now with a 17-millimeter socket and a 17-millimeter wrench, we're gonna go ahead and tighten these down. Now with our bumper fully assembled, fog lights and our light bar is on, we can go ahead and get this on our Jeep. Now just take the hardware from your kit. Now your bolts with your washers are gonna go on the outside holes, while your nuts with your washers are going to go into your inner holes and you might need to lift the bumper and just, you know, move it around a little bit to line everything up. Once they're in, we're gonna tighten these down with a 16-millimeter.All right now on your inner studs, just go ahead and get your nuts put on there with your lock washers and your flat washers and we're gonna tighten those down with the same 16-millimeter we're gonna tighten down our bolts with. Now with our 16-millimeter socket, we're gonna go ahead and tighten our bumper down to our frame and we'll be complete with our install.All right. Now the icing on our cake is these D-rings and they just go right on front here, gonna screw in the pin. Remember to put one on each side. Now that completes the install of our new stubby bumper on the front of our JL Jeep Wrangler. Now don't forget to plug in your harness for your fog lights. It just plugs right back into your factory clip with no problem. After that, you're all done. Get out there on the trails and enjoy your new bumper with more tire clearance for getting over those rocks and obstacles.
