    Review & Install Video

    I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com, and this is my review of the Rough Country Modular Front Winch Plate Bumper fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs. This item uses the term "bumper" really loosely. This is a winch plate that has the ability to add on some corners, either with or without the factory fog lights, and allows you to add some D-rings if you want to. This is much less of a bumper and more of a winch plate with some accessories that you can add. A lot of other modular bumpers on the market are modular in the sense that you can add different types of corners, different bumper hoops, different D-ring mounts, winch plates on top of them, a lot of other accessories that you can add or subtract to build yourself a custom bumper. This is modular in the sense that it comes in a few different pieces, and you assemble it, and it has a couple of accessories, like I mentioned, with and without light mounts for the corners and with D-ring mounts or without them, but it doesn't have a ton of accessories like some of those other bumpers do. Now, if you're looking for a simple stripped-down winch plate bumper, this is a really nice option that will keep your cost way down. However, if you're looking for a modular bumper that's going to give you the opportunity to add a bunch of different parts to it and really customize the function and the look, this is not going to be your item. This bumper comes out of the box in three different pieces. The main section is the winch plate that will attach to the Jeep in much the same way as your bumper would using the frame horns but also a couple of other locations a little further down the frame rail. I really like the sunken winch look that this provides. It hides about half of the winch body or more, which gives your Jeep a really finished look and a little bit of a stealthy look as well, especially if you relocate the winch solenoid pack. Some people will even argue that the sunken winch provides more airflow to the radiator because you don't have the winch sitting up in front of the grill. A lot of people will wheel in hot locations with the winch in a traditional location and not have any airflow issues, so I don't know if it actually helps, but overall, I really do like the look of a sunken winch. Aside from that center section, you have the two corners, and this comes with the corners that include a mount for your factory fog lights. That's a really nice feature, because it keeps you from having to buy additional auxiliary light, and that's pretty much it. You can add D-ring mounts if you want to, but there aren't a lot of other accessories you can add on to that. Because this bumper is so simple, it's also really inexpensive, especially compared to a lot of other stubby bumpers on the market. One thing that you will have to add to this package if you have a 2012 to 2016 JK is a vacuum pump relocation kit. The first step into installing this bumper is to install your winch onto the winch plate and install the fairlead. After that, you can mount the winch plate onto the Jeep using the rearmost mounting holes. From there, you'll remove your factory fog lights from your factory bumper, install them in the corners, and then install the corners on the Jeep. The bolts that hold the corners into place will also go through the winch place and right into the frame rail, giving you that really solid connection that you're after. If you're installing the optional D-ring mounts, you'll also install those at this time. The whole installation process shouldn't take you more than an hour, and you won't need any specialty tools, aside from a large Allen key for the button-head bolts on the front. Overall, this bumper is really heavy-duty, the finish is really nice, and it serves its purpose even though it is no-frills, and there aren't a lot of accessories that you can add on to it. If you're looking for a really simple stripped-down winch bumper, this is it, and in my opinion, it's priced really appropriately for what it is. So if you're looking for a no-frills modular winch bumper that'll save you a couple of dollars over the other options on the market, this is a nice bumper to take a look at. So that's my review of the Rough Country Modular Front Winch Plate Bumper fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.

    Sturdy Construction. The Rough Country Modular Front Winch Plate Bumper has a robust plate steel center that rests below the radiator and doesn't extend beyond your jeep's frame horns. It features an integrated winch mount as well as two steel end caps with fog light mounts for enhanced protection. The strong and heavy-duty build ensures reliable, long-term use.

    Simple Installation. This Jeep Wrangler JK winch bumper doesn't require any drilling or cutting as it fits right into the factory mounting points. The simple bolt-on installation needs only basic tools. The integrated fog light mounts are compatible with OEM fog lights on your jeep.

    Compatibility. This Rough Country Modular Front Winch Bumper is designed to fit JK Jeep Wrangler models from 2007-2018. The 2012-2018 models will require Rough Country's Brake Pump Relocation Bracket, part# 1043, for installation.

    Freight Notes. Freight items can only be shipped within the continental 48 states, no expedited methods.

    Is there a way to attach a license plate to this style bumper?

    TimothyC

    • Yes you can attach a license plate with the Rough Country Modular Front Winch Plate Bumper (07-17 Wrangler JK). If you have a roller fairlead attached to your bumper for the winch, a license bracket like this https://www.extremeterrain.com/rugged-ridge-roller-fairlead-1123805.html would work.

      Looks great and easy install

      I bought this partly due to the price but also because I wanted the recessed mount. This looks as good as any other bumpers I looked at that were 2 or 3x the price. Install was less than 2 hours including the relocation bracket. Very satisfied and would recommend it too anyone, you don’t need to spend $1000 on a bumper.

      I like the fact that it exposes the front tires fully so when you go to approach anything you have a lot of clearance! Clean look for an aggressive front end!

      Just right

      This bumper was just what I was looking for. I wanted a winch bumper that was not extremely heavy and modular. I especially like the low slung winch position in the bumper and the option to use the factory fog lights. I have not mounted this on my jeep yet so I can't comment on fit but do not foresee any issues.

      Great looking bumper for the Money

      Light weight and easy to install. Nothing fancy about this bumper. This is my second time purchasing the RCM bumper. The other was involved in a vehicle accident (not my fault) and held up well. It did not take a direct hit but held up. The other jeep was totaled.

      Awesome, BUT....

      First, this bumper looks amazing. I have a Warn 9,500lb winch that is too big for this bumper without modification. So, I had to drill 4 new holes to mount the winch about 2 inches to the driver side. Then I had to cut a corner from the bottom part to get the bumper to drop in with the winch mounted. Then I had to cut a corner off of the passenger side fog light attachment to accommodate the larger winch. Dude!, this 2 hour install took me 5. My wife was looking at me like "I thought you knew what you were doing...." But after a shower and some food I'm over it. The bumper looks amazing especially with a monster winch!

      Very satisfied

      Solid bumper for what it is. I've added D rings and an 8500lbs synthetic winch to it. I banged into a tree off-roading a few weeks ago and bent one edge of the bumper. I called Rough Country and they replaced the end cap for 50 bucks. That's the best part about this bumper, they said they get more orders for end cap replacement parts than actual bumpers if that tells you anything. Huge bonus. Installation is tricky due to the position of the fog lamps, you'll need to splice and add wire.

      Rough Country Modular Front Winch

      For the money, this is an excellent bumper/winch plate. I did research the installation for a while before installing. Everything fit perfectly but I did need to run out and get a breaker bar for the bolts on the stock bumper. Also, make sure and run your fog light wires behind the bumper and not through the bumper. I ended up ordering the extensions for the fog lights and I would now have to either remove the bumper or cut the fog light lines to run them correctly. Either way, I think this bumper is fantastic and shipping was super fast (2 days) and free!

      Best bumper Choice. By far

      Easy install. Make sure you have a cut off saw/ grinder. Most reviews don't talk about having to cut off the old brake vacuum pump bracket. It took all of 10 extra minutes. Not super hard but need a steady hand and a prybar. An extra person is very handy as well. Thanks Stu! D ring mounts were from smittybilt. Going to put a light bar on it I bought for my hood and never used. Tapping holes in the end caps and bolting it down. That shouldn't be too bad either. All said and done it took about 2.5 to 3 hours. I also have to go splice the wiring to the fog lights. The wires don't reach the new location. Its about 6 inches short on each side. I can get one side plugged in and the other doesn't reach. Not horrible but it didn't say anything about that gem either. Right now they are unplugged and I have the wiring zip tied inside the plate where the winch will sit eventually. Ya know. Built not bought. Overall I love the look and the build of the product. I would recommend this over a heavy overpriced tractor size bumper any day. As long as stubby is your thing. Thanks!

      Pretty solid little bumper.

      I have to give this credit for being his sturdy and solidly built as it is for the price that it is. Getting the front holes aligned with the and pieces that hold the fog lamps was a bit of a challenge, then again I was putting them on with recovery point mounts as well. The only downside to this bumper is you do need to get fog lamp wiring harness extensions, unless you want to cut open and resolder the wiring harness for the fog lights.

      I love this Bumper. Tight fit between the frame of jeep, but that's good. The Two Bolts on the bottom inside the frame was the hardest to get in and tighten. I got the relocation kit also. I have not done that one yet.

      I choose this bumper because I like the stubby look and it sits low with the winch so it doesn't block the grill. It's easy to install and looks really nice.

      Awesome Bumper

      I ordered the modular bumper because I I wanted the look of the stubby and still able to use my fog lights. Plus most of the other bumpers I found just seemed to make the bumper sticker out to far. But the modular bumper looks great, stays close to the body of the jeep also allows the winch to sit down inside the bumper rather than the entire winch being exposed on top.

      Great Bumper

      This is a great bumper for the money. Install was easy and straight forward. Brake pump has to be relocated, and old bracket removed. Took a few hours to install with winch, and fog light install. I would definitely recommend installing the winch when you put the bumper on or you'll have to remove it to install it at a later date.

      This is a great minimalist bumper and install was a breeze. I paired it with a mile marker winch and looks great. I like the fact that you get to keep the fog lights and that the rear winch bolts are in the crash bar and not accessible unless the bumper is removed.

      Great bumper for the money!

      This is a fantastic bumper for those that don't want to spend too much. Very light weight as far as aftermarket bumpers go. Instructions included were pretty terrible. I did have to extend the driver side fog light wiring to reach the new location on this bumper, but that wasn't much of a hassle. Hardest part about this install was just getting the stock bumper off. Installation is pretty self explanatory. Looks great with the smittybilt xrc winch and d rings I installed as well. I'm very happy with my purchase.
