This RedRock 4x4 full-width Rock Crawler front bumper with the winch mount is for those of you that have a 2007 to 2018 JK that are looking for an aftermarket bumper that's not only going to change up the look of your Jeep but also add a lot of on-road and especially off-road functionality. This bumper is going to be very, very easy to install on your Jeep, definitely a one out of three wrench bolt-on installation and I'm gonna show you exactly how to get it installed in just a second. So as I said, you're really gonna be looking at an aftermarket bumper if you're looking to change up the look and the function of your Jeep and this is going to do both of those things. I'm gonna talk about exactly what functionality this bumper adds in just a second when we have this side by side with that factory front bumper. Right off the bat, you can see that all these bars here are gonna add a lot of different look, you have some cutouts along the side here and the bottom so definitely a very drastic change over that factory plastic front bumper. This is gonna be a lot more off-roadable but also add some functionality on-road and of course that aesthetic change that we talked about. This bumper is going to be a pretty high-quality option for you. There are a couple of things I look at when I see a bumper like this. For instance, here on the end of these tubes, if it has just a plastic insert here or if these are welded, these are usually gonna be welded, this does have some gusseting, the finish on it is very nice so it is a pretty high-quality bumper and I think for the price tag of $330 it is gonna be a pretty good deal for you when you consider the quality and all the functionality that it adds. So let's go ahead and get into the installation and then when we have this bumper side by side with the factory one, we'll talk about a few more of those features. So like I said before, this is a very simple one out of three wrench installation, you just have to unbolt your factory bumper and bolt the new one up. The first step in removing this bumper is going to be removing the fog light harnesses, then we'll unbolt the bumper itself, and then remove the bumper cover so I'm gonna hop on the creeper, get underneath, and unplug those harnesses. Now the fog light harness is unplugged, we can remove the nuts that hold the bumper onto the Jeep with an 18-millimeter socket. We'll remove the same nuts on the other side. Now that we have all eight nuts removed from the factory bumper, we can simply remove the bumper from the Jeep. The last step in the uninstallation is removing this frame cover from right here on top of the frame. There are a couple of plastic clips that hold it in place. You can just use a screwdriver and/or a trim removal tool to pop those clips and get the cover removed. So it becomes very, very apparent when you put the factory bumper next to the RedRock bumper, what the differences are, but I wanna talk about a few of them and how they're going to be benefits to you. So right off the bat, this is going to be a steel bumper covered in a black powder coated finish where that factory bumper, while it has some metal in the underlaying form of it, it is overall a plastic bumper so it's not going to offer nearly the same protection that this can against some minor bumps and dings, whether it's on-road or off-road. A couple of the other things that you're gonna notice on this bumper is one, the aesthetics. It's a completely different looking bumper and these bars up top here, they're not really gonna add a ton of functionality, at least this one and the one on the other side. There are some clamps that you can get that will clamp on here and turn these into light mounts so if you chose to do that, that is gonna be an option for you. But overall, these are going to be more of an aesthetic thing than anything else. And that's really what takes this bumper from a normal run-of-the-mill aftermarket off-road style bumper to one that's a little bit more of a love it or hate it mod. Some people really enjoy these, some people not their cup of tea and that's for you to decide. The bar in the middle here, this one is going to be a little bit more functional. It has two light mount tabs up on the top of it. It's also going to offer a little bit of protection for the winch that you may or may not be running on the Jeep. With that being said, this does have a built-in winch mount. So you're gonna be able to mount a winch right onto this bumper without the need to purchase any additional hardware. There's no additional winch mount, just bolt it right up and go. And one of the things that I like about this is the winch mount sets the winch a little bit lower in the bumper. So, of course, here's your Fairlead mount, about half the winch or more is going to be seated below the top of the bumper just giving it a little bit of a cleaner look versus some of the other options where you just mount the winch right up on top of the bumper and the whole thing is just fully exposed. Over here, you have a D-ring mount and, of course, one on this side as well and this bumper does come with the D-rings. That's one of those things that it's just nice you don't have to think about purchasing them separately. They're gonna come right in the box with the bumper and these D-rings are going to be great for any sort of off-road recovery. Now you can see down here on the factory bumper, this does have some tow hooks. I prefer a D-ring mount because the D-ring ensures that your tow strap isn't going to come off. If you're using a snatch strap, a cell recovery strap on a hook like this like that, there's a chance that while the line is slacked, that it could pop off of that hook. So again, this is just going to be a little bit more secure for you. Now this bumper is also going to have some holes here and some cutouts along the corners here. Now those aren't going to specifically be light mounts in there although they look like they could be. These are really just there for aesthetics much like these bars up on top here. Now down here on the factory bumper, the holes are very functional. They're designed for those factory fog lights. This bumper is not going to accept your factory fog lights. So if that's something that you're looking for, I would steer you toward a different bumper. However, like we said, this does have some light mount tabs up top here, even some holes right here that you can mount lights if you chose to. So this bumper is going to be very different from the factory bumper when you look at it from the standpoint of aesthetics, from functionality on-road and off-road, and also protection. So now that we showed you the difference between these two bumpers, we're gonna go ahead and finish showing you how to get this bumper installed. Now that the factory bumper is completely removed, we can go ahead and install the RedRock bumper. This one just slides over the frame horns using all of the factory holes. This bumper comes with new hardware that you'll use to attach it onto the Jeep. It comes with flat washers, lock washers, and nuts. Once all of the hardware is tightened down, the last step is to install the D-rings on the D-ring mounts. I know a lot of you guys do like to run these all the time. They can make a little bit of noise and clank around a little bit so if you just want to throw them in your recovery bag and only install them when you need them, that's fine too. But again, a lot of people like to run them all the time so we're gonna pop them on. So if you are looking for a unique front bumper that's going to add some on-road and off-road functionality to your Jeep, I would recommend taking a look at this choice from RedRock 4x4 and you can find it right here at extremeterrain.com.
