    Review & Installation Video

    I'm Ryan with extremeterrain.com, and this is my review of the Rugged Ridge front tube bumper fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs. This bumper is available on both the textured black finish you see here and also a stainless finish so you can really customize the look of your Jeep. This bumper is for those of you looking to swap out the front bumper on your JK either because it's damaged or just because you want a different look but you don't need the protection and additional features offered from an off road bumper. This tube bumper gives you that old school look that a lot of you guys are after without the additional cost and weight of an off road specific bumper. While this does offer a little more protection than your plastic factory bumper, it doesn't have a lot of those other off road specific features. This bumper doesn't have a winch mount or recovery points or mounts for additional off road lights. Although it does accept the factory fog lights, which is a nice feature. If you're looking for an off road bumper that has all those other features, I would suggest taking a look at one of the other bumpers on the website. But if you're looking for a stylish upgrade of your factory bumper that keeps both cost and weight down, this is a good option. This whole package weighs in at just 48 pounds even with the included frame cover. Installing a bumper on a JK is a pretty straightforward process. The first thing you'll need to do is remove your factory bumper and pop out those factory fog light housings. Those housings will get installed in this new bumper before installing the bumper back on the Jeep. This bumper includes eight studs on the back that will slide right into the factory frame horns, and everything gets bolted together with the hardware included in the kit. Once the bumper is bolted up, you'll be able to attach the included frame cover. The entire installation should take about two hours. You won't need any specialty tools, just some sockets, but some of the nuts are difficult to get to, so having a set of extensions and universals handy will make things easier. This bumper is priced fairly for what you get. It doesn't have a lot of the features of some of those off road specific bumpers, but if you're not going to be using that functionality, this is a good way to save a couple of dollars. If you're looking to change out the front bumper on your JK and you don't have the need for a lot of those off road specific features, this is a good bumper to take a look at. It offers that old school tubular bumper look all in a well-constructed lightweight package at an affordable price. That's my review of the Rugged Ridge front tube bumper fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.

    Bumper Construction. Rugged Ridge's bumper is made of high quality steel construction and a rugged textured black finish. Each bumper has an E-coating that prevents rusting and pitting for the life of your JK. Every weld spot is smooth ground to eliminate rough edges that leads to rust and deterioration. 

    Bumper Specs. The bumper weights about 48 lbs and is built for tough love. Each bumper includes a durable powder coated finish and two locations to add and mount aftermarket lighting. 

    Accessories & More. This bumper gives drivers the option of installing a pair of fog lights to help illuminate the way. The design allows the lights to be out of the way and protected from hazards.

    Application. This Rugged Ridge bumper is compatible on all 2007-2018 Wrangler JK models.

    What are my options to mount the license plate in between the fog lights? I'd like to avoid drilling in the bumper. I just received the bumper and using the bracket (Item J14553 MPN# 11503.80) doesnt look like it's going to work for where I want to mount it. Any suggestions?

Once I got the original off, this new tube bumper went on quick and without any issues. Good stuff!

      Rugged Ridge Tube Front Bumper

      I purchased this Jeep three years, my third one in 25 years. The product came well packaged with no defects, they are strong and solid. The front bumper went on with no issues, directions were straight forward. I had to utilize a cheater bar to get off one or two of the bolts, other than that basic garage tools did the trick. Adds a classic look that I have had on all my Jeeps. The tubes have welded ends and the textured coating is far superior to bumpers I have added in the past. previous brands had a painted on coating that flaked and peeled within a few months. this far more durable. The textured coating matches the Rugged Ridge rear bumper, Nerf-bar side steps and Smittybilt rocker rails that I installed as well. Pictured here with the follow modifications: - Rugged Ridge Tube Front Bumper, Textured Black - Rugged Ridge Rear Tube Bumper, Textured Black - Rugged Ridge Textured Black Side Armor Nerf Bars - Smittybilt SRC Classic Rock Rails (OEM Style) - Black Textured - Rough Country 1.25 in.

      Very easy to install, remove the 8 bolts off the old bumper and the bumper cover. For the inside left upper bolt it helps to have 18mm swivel socket. The new bumper is nuts are 19mm. The front really stand out now.

      Rugged Ridge Tube Front Bumper, Textured Black (07-15 Wrangler JK)

      My son and I replaced the stock bumper on my 2015 Jeep Sport Unlimited. It took almost 2 hours but getting the stock bumper took longer than putting the new one on. The stock fog lights on the original bumper fit perfectly on the new bumper. The quality of this bumper is excellent and I love the look of it as well, it really makes the front end of the Jeep stand out with a rugged look!

      Got the custom look I wanted with this bumper

      I wanted my 2015 Wrangler to stand out a little more from the crowd, so I decided to upgrade my stock bumpers. Although I was disappointed that I couldn't handle the installation myself (didn't have an impact wrench to undo bolts) I 'm very happy with the new and improved appearance of my Jeep. The Rugged Ridge bumper is solid (seems more sturdy and durable that the one I removed) and I really like the textured black powder coat. Right now, a satisfied customer!

      Took longer to remove the old bumper than it did to install the new. Install was basic and quick. Great, sturdy bumper... Love the look! If i had a complaint, it would be the panel covering the space between the grill and the bumper - it's pretty flimsy. The flexibility makes it easier to install, but I would have preferred a harder install to a flimsy panel. The bumper makes up for it... Overall, I'm happy with my purchase!

      Awesome beefy bumper

      This bumper brought my Jeep up to eye catching status. It's great quality and the textured black makes for a great rugged look. I also added the tubular back bumper to complete my Wrangler. Rugged Ridge has been my favorite accessory brand to date. I have and will continue to recommend them to all my fellow Jeepers!!

      Took some fitting.

      I bought a front and rear set for a 2017 2 door JK Sarhara. Both bumpers came with small "dimples" in the tubing. One on the front, and one on the back. They did NOT bolt on as per the directions and the installation videos. The rear bumper's right side mounting bracket was welded about a 1/8'' out of square, preventing it from sliding into the frame rails. That was fixed with an "adjustment" and all went fine after. The front bumper "box" that goes over the frame brackets was a 1/8' too small and some grinding of the mounts was required. Further, two of the mounting bolts on the bumper were not square when welded in and had to be "adjusted".

      Nice look but rusted after 2 years

      I purchased this front bumper and matching rear for my 2013 JK in May 2013 at a dealership because at the time I didn't have an area to do my own mods. I was looking for something inexpensive but cooler looking than a stock bumper. In hind sight I wish I choose better. Its a good, light bumper but if you live near the salt air, keep looking. I live on an east coast barrier island so rusting is a problem. I noticed some minimal spot rusting after year one winter. By year two, even though I hosed and/or washed my jeep on a weekly basis, there was wide spread surface rusting on the corner caps and where kicked up highway rocks had dinged the powder coating. By year 3, the powder coating was almost completely gone and large areas of rusting. The worst areas were on the corners of rear bumper and lower front tubes. So last spring 2016, the rusted areas and pox marks were very noticeable and unsightly. Each year since Year One, Rugged Ridge and the dealership denied a warranty return. I removed both bumpers, sanded the worst areas, applied a Rustoleum primer in hopes of slowing the spread of rusting. Then applied a rubber based rust-resistant textured painted to better the appearance. Its now year 4, I'm shopping for new bumpers because after all the work I did last year, the rust is coming through and more powder coating has come off. The underside of rear bumper corners are completely rusted through, as well as the welded bends of the front bumper.

      Great Bumper for the Price - Easy Install

      This bumper was a breeze to install. Looks great for what it cost. My only complaint would be the "optional" plastic cover piece, because it is plastic and I imagine it will need to be removed after a few years of wear and tear. I wish it were metal, but you can't really expect that for this price point. For plastic, it is pretty sturdy. All in all a very good bumper for the money. I'd recommend for someone looking to upgrade to this old school look on a budget.

      Great look to any jeep

      Just added the rear bumper and the front completes the look. Bushwhacked makes a great product. Fi sh is nice made really well and no flaws. Only had 1 problem installing, holes did not line up. One side needed to drill out the holes larger to make fit. Instructions do not tell that their other parts of the front you need to remove before installing. Still all in all worth it on my 2017 wrangler unlimited
