Hey guys. Today I'm here with the RedRock 4x4 Crawler-Max Full Width Front Bumper, fitting all 2007 to 2018 JK Wranglers. This front bumper is for the JK owner looking for a full width front bumper to add a ton of functionality to their JK, as well as a custom design compared to other heavy-duty front bumpers on the page. This will have a hybrid effect, with a stubby front bumper in the middle, with two D ring mounts for recovery, as well as a standard winch plate to add some utility to your JK. You're also getting some light mounting tabs on top, so you can add any accessories that you like, making a custom look. So, at the moment, this is gonna be a very affordable option at roughly $350 on the page. And compared to other standard width and full width front bumpers on the page, I think this is very uniquely designed and it adds a ton of functionality, making it good for the price. Plus, it comes with a three year limited warranty to keep a little peace of mind. Install's gonna be a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. Everything's gonna be completely bolt-on. You'll need a couple of hand tools and about an hour's worth of your time. So, speaking of the install, let's jump into that now. The tools that I used for my install were a ratchet, a Phillips head screwdriver, a flat head screwdriver, an 18 millimeter deep socket, and a 16 millimeter deep socket. So, the first step to removing our bumper is to remove the eight nuts that are holding our bumper on. So, I'm gonna be using an eight millimeter deep socket and a ratchet to get those off. So, the first step to taking our bumper off is to remove the top splash guard. It's gonna be held in by two pop clips. I am going to just remove those with a flat head screwdriver. You can also use a trim removal tool. All right. So, once those are out, you are gonna have to maneuver this splash guard out. If it's easier for you to take off the splash guard when you take your bumper off, you can do that. However, to give you a better visual on how we're taking the bumper off, I'm just going to remove this now. So, this step is gonna be a little bit difficult to see. But on the inner side of the frame rail, you are gonna have two more of those nuts on the...threaded onto the studs that are in the bumper. So, you're gonna use the same 18 millimeter deep socket to remove those. May be able to see the bottom one here. To make this a little bit easier, you can add an extension. I am not using one, because these are pretty easy to get off. Because this crash bar is curved over here, the top one will be a little bit harder to access than the bottom one. And really, accessing it is just all about the leverage. So, after all of your nuts are off the studs, make sure that you remove all of your nut plates as well. Because when you remove the bumper, those will fall if you don't remove them. Now the only thing that's holding the bumper on at this point is the fog lights, so now we can disconnect those. Now we're ready to pull our bumper off. So, like I mentioned, guys, this new front bumper will offer fuller and more solid front end protection than your factory, plastic front bumper would. So, this is gonna be made of a heavy-duty plated steel in the middle, and then you have heavy-duty steel tubing on the outside. This also has a two-stage black textured powder coat finish on it, so it's gonna resist any rust or corrosion on the bare steel. It's gonna give you a very off-road appearance, and an aggressive look to the front bumper. And it's gonna be very solid, so it's gonna be able to take any abuse off-road. With this new front bumper, you are getting a lot more coverage than your standard stock bumper that kind of just reached from tire to tire. So, you are getting the tubular ends that will protect the front of your tires, and you're also getting this over-rider feature for full-front grille protection. You're also getting some new recovery points with this. You are getting two welded D ring mounts for a solid recovery point, unlike the factory tow hooks, which are not that reliable. You also are getting, on the D ring mounts, an extra hoop. So if you didn't want to use the D rings and you just wanted to use a different recovery method, you also have this front area for a recovery point, which actually isn't even that common on a lot of aftermarket front bumpers. So, speaking of recovery, you do also get a drop-in winch plate in the front. This is gonna be reinforced, a solid recovery point, and it's able to hold up to a 12,000 pound winch, which will really come in handy for those sticky situations on the trail. And your stock front bumper is not gonna be there to get you out of those sticky situations, since it will not offer that. You're also getting two tabs on the top of the over-rider feature to mount any accessories up, to really customize your front bumper, which you really are limited when you have your stock front bumper. So, the only thing that is really transferable is the fog lights. This new front bumper will be able to accept any OEM fog lights, as well as any aftermarket fog lights that are the OEM size. So, enough about our stock front bumper, let's bolt up our new one. So, now we're ready to switch over our fog lights. You will need a Phillips head screwdriver to remove the four screws that are holding in each fog light. So, before we put our fog lights in, we do need to insert these little plates here. And this is just going to hold our screws in place. So, these are going to be pretty tight on the metal here, so I'm just gonna use a flat head screwdriver. Push it into place. There we go. Now we can repeat the same step with the other three. All right. So, after all those are in, you can take a Phillips head screwdriver and secure those down. So, after our fog lights are in, we're ready to mount up our bumper and secure it down with the provided hardware. Make sure that the bumper is fully on. And then we can take our hardware and attach that next. So, like I said before, after all of our hardware is attached, we're gonna go around and tighten everything down with a 16 millimeter deep socket. So, our last and final step is to plug in our fog lights. You can just take your harness and pop those into place. So, after you're finished plugging these in, you're all set to go. So, that's gonna wrap it up for my review and install on the RedRock 4x4 Crawler-Max Full Width Front Bumper, fitting all 2007 to 2018 JK Wranglers.
