Bumper Construction. This stubby tubular front bumper from Rugged Ridge is constructed out of 3 inch round steel tubing. The textured black powder coat finish and the interior pre-coat prevents rust from forming on any part of this bumper. The smooth welds contribute to this bumper's clean appearance. The ends are welded, so you won't have to worry about loosing plastic caps and getting dirt and mud inside the bumper tubes.
Bumper Specs. This bumper protects your Wrangler's front end from off-road and on-road hazards. An integrated winch mount makes recovery options easy, so you won't have to worry about getting stranded while exploring the trails.
Accessories & More. This bumper features cut outs so you can retain the use of your JK's stock fog lights.
Application. This textured black Rugged Ridge Stubby Tube Front Bumper with Winch Plate is designed to fit on the 2007-2018 JK Wranglers.

Pain to install but worth it.
Had problems getting the bumper seated all the way. Some reviews said it didn't fit, RR blames it on the frame. There is some truth to that, but the bumper wasn't faultless. Between grinding down the frame so it would fit and taking a rubber mallet to the screws to align them correctly, I finally was able to get it on. All in all, it was worth the time. Looks great and adds a unique look to the jeep.Helpful (8)

This is my first rugged ridge product. While the bumper looks well made, and has a great look. The bumper would not fit onto the stock bumper plates without me having to drill out the holes to make them fit. When I reached out to rugged ridge they said it was a manufacturing error by jeep and that the jeep plate was welded on Incorrectly at the jeep plant. Not sure who was right but the stock bumper fit on the frame fine, so I would have expected the same with the rugged ridge bumper.Helpful (10)

Fair fit with a great finish on the bumper. Had to enlarge 2 holes in the bumper mount plate no the Jeep to get all 8 holes lined up, other than that it was an easy install Looks great on the JK.Helpful (10)

Overall, easy install and looks great.
From start to finish, the install was pretty easy. I think the hardest part I had was getting the airdam out from underneath the original bumper. Also, once the winch plate is securely in, getting the bumper bolts to fit in securely into the bumper plate holes was tricky, but easily solved with a little strength and a rubber hammer. There was a dent that I noticed on the top of the bull bar and I'm not sure where it came from. However, I am pleased and now I just need to get the winch. AHelpful (9)

a great look, good price
Bumper arrived within a couple days and installed same day it arrived. The install was fairly easy in my opinion, but would have been alot easier with an extra set of hands and better lighting since it got dark pretty quick this time of year. Couldn't be happier with the bumper with the ease of install and reasonable price.Helpful (8)

How thick is the winch mounting plate? 1/4" or 1/8"? Cold rolled or hot rolled steel?
Unfortunately, Rugged Ridge has not made that information available, however we do know that this is meant to handle a 12,000 lb winch.
Can tow hooks be bolted/mounted onto the bumper?
The Rugged Ridge Stubby Tube Front Bumper w/ Winch Plate is not designed for tow hook installation, so that would be a custom modification that we would not be able to advise on.
Does this bumper install require relocating the stock vacuum pump?
Hello! Installing this bumper does not require relocation of the stock vacuum pump!
If I have a light cube fog light conversion kit (from rough country) that fits in the factory bumper, will it fit into this?
Hello, if the conversion kit you have fits in the factory bumper, then you shouldn't have any issues installing them on this bumper.
Does it matter what size winch with this bumper? Just wondering if this bumper can handle a 12,000 lb + winch?
Hello, yes, the Rugged Ridge Textured Black Stubby Tube Bumper w/ Winch Plate (07-17 Wrangler JK) can handle a 12,000 lb winch. We do have several to choose from, but one of our best sellers is the Barricade 12000lb Winch (87-17 Wrangler YJ, TJ & JK) and you can find it here: http://www.extremeterrain.com/barricade-12000lb-winch-j100205.html
