Solid Purchase for 2013 JKU
Bought this to replace stock and wanted to add a WARN Zeon 12 winch. Working on it today -- removal of stock bumper in tight garage was not easy but the new bumper seems to work. Now to integrate the winch. Note for the faint hearted -- had to unmount and move the vacuum pump assembly per the instructions. This involved cutting only the front mounting tab and bolt (don't cut the rear one as I almost did before reading the instructions). Dremel with metal blade took about 3 minutes and I polished and painted it with flat black rustoleum before mounting bumper again.Helpful (1)

Great Front Bumper Kit from Rugged Rige!
Great looking bumper. Got a lot of compliments right after it was put on. Heavy dut and very sturdy. It works well with my winch.Helpful (10)

Great looking sturdy bumper!
Sturdy and easy to install. The most time consuming part is cutting the vacuum pump bracket and relocating it with the included brackets. It is much easier to cut the bracket with a hand grinder if you have one available, but a hacksaw and some sweat will do the trick. Once the pump has been relocated, the installation of the bumper itself is easy. I recommend bumper ends such as the high clearance ends for a better look. Without any ends, the bumper is simply a block in the middle of the front end.Helpful (10)

Would be nice if it fit
I purchased this bumper because of the positive reviews and I liked how you can change parts if you ever want to modify it. I was really let down when attempting to install on a 2017 jku and found out it did not fit. The winch tray is too wide to fit in between the frame rails. Rugged Ridge customer service was subpar and did not help in anyway other than saying that they sell a lot of these and has never had anyone else report the problem. I can't speak about Extreme Terrains customer service because I am still waiting to hear back from them. Maybe I got a got a bad part or maybe jeep has changed dimensions on the frame rail horns. I will wait to hear back before I grind on the frame. Also the center bumper came with areas that are missing finish and one of the bumper ends had some deep gouges in the metal.Helpful (12)

Great quality, however, tough to put on. Before buying, I read all this stuff about putting it on in an hour or two.....no way. Set aside 4 hours at least. Had an issue with my winch. Will post additional photo when I get a new one installed. Holes line up, directions are OK, and it's a complete kit with everything you need. Buy it!Helpful (11)

this heavy front bumper definitely gave the Jeep the look I was going for. only issue I have had with it was a little piece of the textured paint flaking off, although it's painted underneath also It is not really an ordeal. another inconvience I ran into was having to move the vacuum pump permanently when installing this front bumper. if you know your way around a tool box somewhat, then this is an easy install. if not, just do yourself a favor and find someone who will get it put on right!Helpful (10)

The install was a piece of cake, can't beat the way high clearance bumper ends match the stock fender flares. The only minor hiccup was some missing M12-60 bolts and nuts, but the folks at ET handled that perfectly. I did a lot of shopping before I pulled the trigger on this setup and Extreme Terrain definitely had the best price and the shipping was very quick.Helpful (11)

This bumper is well made and fits together like a glove. Everything lined up spot on and the appearance looked great. I was sold a vaccum pump relocator kit and did not need it as Rugged Ridge incorporates an easy fix bracket to move it out of the way. Unfortunately I found out after removing my second horn and relocating it by rewiring and rerouting the vacuum lines. The only downside to my experience is is the bolts that secure the bumper and striker bar to the frame did not come with the packaging.Helpful (10)

Overall very pleased
Heavy duty and the line-up of the bolts was spot on for a 2016. There are a fe things you should know. You are going to have to move the vacuum pump and actually sever or cut back a part of the original frame to make it fit. It's actually in the instructions. Not everyone has access to a right-angle cutter. Two other minor issues: 1. This is not the best bumper for adding a lot of LEDs. Not may flat surfaces. 2. The winch fit is very tight but doable with a little creativity.Helpful (11)
Hello, any idea how this would hold up vs a deer? God willing it would never happen but unfortunately we live in deer country...
does the bumper come with a relocating pump bracket???
No, the Rugged Ridge XHD Front Bumper Kit w/ Striker Bar & High Clearance Bumper Ends will not include a Vacuum pump relocation bracket.
Is there a skid plate available for this bumper?
At this time we do not offer a skid plate for this bumper.
How much does this bumper weigh?
This bumper weighs approximately 120 lbs.
What License plate mount would be recommended for this bumper?
Rugged Ridge does not have a suggest license plate mount to be used with the Rugged Ridge XHD Front Bumper Kit w/ Striker Bar & High Clearance Bumper Ends. We would suggest using a license plate bracket that mounts to your winch fairlead. We have the Rugged Ridge Roller Fairlead License Plate Mounting Bracket found here: https://www.extremeterrain.com/rugged-ridge-roller-fairlead-1123805.html and for a hawse fairlead we have the Rugged Ridge License Plate Mounting Bracket for Hawse Fairlead found here: https://www.extremeterrain.com/rugged-ridge-license-plate-mounting-bracket-for-hawse-fairlead-8717-yj-tj-jk.html.
The Rugged Ridge XHD Front Bumper Kit would not have built in mounting for a front plate. A custom bracket would be required.
