I'm Ryan from extremeterrain.com, and this is my review and installation of the Rugged Ridge All Terrain Over-Rider Hoop, fitting your 2007 and up JK with an XHD Modular Bumper installed. This installation of this hoop is a very simple one out of three wrench install, and this isn't going to take you more than a half hour to get it bolted up.This is for those of you that have the XHD modular bumper base installed on your Jeep and are looking for a hoop to add a little bit of additional style, and some protection against some light brush when you're on the trail. This is going to go up over top of any winch that you might have mounted on your Jeep to help push branches and other brush out of the way of your grille, and from rubbing on the winch.Now, this is a piece, that's in my opinion, a little bit expensive for what it. However, when you buy a modular front bumper, you already know that you're gonna spend a little bit more money to build it up as you want it, and you're paying for the ability to really customize the bumper and change it as your build grows. So generally, these modular bumpers are a little bit more expensive and the pieces that go on them are as well.This hoop is made of a two point three-inch diameter steel tube, and it's covered in textured black powder coat finish, the same finish as that XHD bumper and a lot of other Rugged Ridge and other aftermarket parts, so this is going to match really well. Because this is designed to be bolted directly onto that bumper base, it's going to be pre-drilled, have all the feet, come with all the hardware, have everything you need to get it bolted up.So to get this installed on your Jeep again is a very simple one out of three wrenches, that shouldn't take you more than a half hour to complete. If you already have the XHD bumper base installed on your Jeep, chances are you have a couple of plugs in the threaded holes where this needs to get mounted, so you would go ahead and remove those plugs, hold this over top of the holes and use the included hardware to get it bolted down, again, very, very simple process. If you haven't yet installed the bumper base on your Jeep, you can bolt this onto the base without the bumper installed on the Jeep, and then install the whole thing on your vehicle. It really comes down to how you choose to do the install and what's easiest for you. Either way, you're just gonna need a socket set and about a half hour to get this bolted up.Like I said, this is going to be a little bit expensive for what it is in my opinion. You're gonna have to pay around $100 for this hoop, and that could be a third of the cost of some full bumpers out there. But when you buy a modular bumper, you have to know that you're gonna end up spending more money to get that thing customized exactly how you like it, versus buying an off the shelf bumper. You're paying for the convenience and the ability to modify the bumper and really customize it. So if you already have a modular bumper, chances are you're gonna be okay with the slightly higher cost of this hoop.So if you have a Rugged Ridge XHD modular front bumper already, you're looking to add a hoop, or you just bought the bumper and you're looking for the hoop as part of that complete build, to change up the style, and also add a little bit of protection to your winch, and/or your grille, this is really going to be the only option that will bolt directly onto your Jeep. While it is priced a little bit higher than I'd like it to be, unfortunately, the modular bumpers are just a little bit more expensive, and you are gonna have to pay a little bit more to get pieces for it.So that's my review of the Rugged Ridge All Terrain Over-Rider Hoop, fitting all 2007 and up JK's with the Rugged Ridge XHD Modular Front Bumper Base that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.
