Hey, guys. So today, I'm here with the Rugged Ridge Spartacus Overrider Bar fitting all 2007 to 2018 and up JK and JL Wranglers with the Rugged Ridge Spartacus front bumper already installed. So if you already have this aggressive front bumper by Rugged Ridge, and you're looking to build off of it, you're looking to give it a little upgrade, this overrider bar is definitely a great option to take a look at. Now, this just comes with the overrider bar in the package, but this is gonna provide you some strong and some good-looking grille protection with the durable aluminum and the satin black powder coat finish to match the front bumper. Now, this is gonna be roughly $175 on the page right now, and that is at a pretty average price point. All other options for separate bull bars that are specific to different front bumpers really go around that range. And I personally think for what this is, the durable aluminum, how it fits, and the fact that there is no drilling involved, I definitely think that it is worth that $170. So install is gonna be a very easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. You're gonna need a couple of hand tools a little bit of time to get this installed. So speaking of the install, let's jump into that now. The tools that I used for this install were an impact wrench and a 17-millimeter socket. So to kick off this install, I would recommend to uninstall your bumper from your Wrangler. It's just gonna be a lot easier to install the bull bar since we are bolting it up from the bottom. But you will need to grab your hardware, as well as a 17-millimeter socket, in order to start this. So what we're gonna do first is just start by mounting up one side, and then we can loosely install this and then loosely install the other side and go back to tighten everything down. You are gonna have a plastic washer that you will put on top. So what I'm gonna do is just place the washer there and place the bolts through that washer, and then we can line up our bull bar. It makes it a lot easier, instead of trying to stand back and line everything up. We're just going to start to thread that in. And why I say it may be a little bit easier to uninstall your bumper is because, right here, you're gonna have your frame rail. So picking a bolt and maneuvering it through there may be a little bit difficult. So once that is snugged up, we can move to the other side, and we can do the same thing. Once both sides are in position, we can take that 17-millimeter socket. You can use a ratchet or an impact gun. I'm gonna use my impact gun and we are gonna tighten that down. That should snap it in place. Same for the other side. And now, you're ready to reinstall your bumper.So that's gonna wrap it up for my quick review and install of the Rugged Ridge Spartacus Overrider Bar fitting all 2007 to 2018 and up JK and JL Wranglers.

Will this fit a 2018 wrangler jeep rubicon rincon
The Rugged Ridge Spartacus Overrider Bar is designed specifically to work with the Rugged Ridge Spartacus Front Bumper. As long as your 2018 Rubicon has the Spartacus Front bumper installed it will work!
Can I get a measurement from inner side of bars and outer side of the bars. I wanna see if I can make it fit my hardrock rubicon bumper. Thanks
The measurements of the Rugged Ridge Spartacus Overrider Bar are 31 1/4" center to center of tube mounting hole. The tube is 2 1/2" in diameter. The measurement inside space between the bars measures 28 3/4" and the outside edge to edge is 33 3/4". The Overrider Bar is also about 10 1/2" tall.
Your website says this fits the JL but on the website from rugged ridge it doesnt show that it fits the JL? Have you guys confirmed it works on both bumpers JK and JL Spartacus ? I messaged the guys at rugged ridge and they said the JL over rider bar will be released in 3 to 4 weeks and was still in development. Not sure it they meant a new style of over rider etc. I followed up to confirm and I am waiting on response.
This only works with the JK Spartacus bumper.
This able to fit on Jeep steel bumper that come with it??
