    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?

    • Hello, bracket Item J14553 would be the best way to mount the License Plate on that bumper.

      Looks great but license plate bracket doesn't fit

      I love this bumper but it doesn't work with the license bracket sold on this website. I now have to try to figure something out before I get a ticket. I also wasted $25 on the bracket since it's useless on this bumper.

      Nice addition

      This is super easy to install! The only thing that you have to figure out is where to attach your fog light wires so they don't hang down. (zip ties save the day)

      For looks only!

      Daughter damaged stock front bumper. Caught both the front and back bumpers on sale, both cost less than an OEM bumper replacement. They look good on my 2017 black Freedom Edition Jeep. One word of caution, as you may notice in the pictures you lose all the OEM Tow Hooks front and back. Problem with that is the Installation Directions plainly state these bumpers are not suitable for recovery. I am now investigating how to get Recovery Hooks installed back on my Jeep.

      Love the new front bumber! It took more time to take the old bumber off than to put the new one on, and it gave my Jeep a totally new look! Allowed me to upgrade without breaking my wallet!

      A great addition to our JKU.

      The hardest part was getting the old stock bumper off. That was 90 of the struggle but installing the Rugged Ridge Tube Front Bumper was easy and it looks much better that stock.

      I love the dramatic difference this clasic tubular bumper makes. Looks gr8 and functional to protect investment more then factory bumper. Husband installed after he saw YouTube video and he said it was easy.

      Love it

      Only thing that I did not like about it, is that I had to make a very small cut in the middle to add the front license plate mount. not a big deal with the right tool, but just something that I did not realize when I bought it.

      Front Bumper

      This product is easy to install after removal of old bumper. That being said it takes some doing to get all eight of the 18mm bolts holding the old bumper out. It would also be helpful if the new bumper included two clips to hold the new piece between the bumper and the front grill

      No problem

      You should allow 2 hours to install this but a friend and I removed the front bumper and installed the new bumper in less than an hour. It helped to have read the instructions first and to have had two sets of tools. I'm very happy with the finished product and ease of installation.

      Tube Bumper

      This was an easy install and looks great. I did watch a youtube video on how to take the factory bumper off. The plastic cover was a little difficult to get into place. Took about 2 hours to complete the job.

      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

      Love the look

      Shooting for the old beach-buggy look and this is it! Great quality bumper. Only drawbacks were I had to cut about an 1/8 strip off the outside edges of the number mount point on the jeep - tolerances were too tight to fit otherwise. Other thing is the plastic cover is a little flimsy. Wish it was metal (willing to pay for a metal one if they already have one fab’d). Love the look

      Really like the quality and the looks. Very nice product for the money. Will be replacing the plastic cover with a steel cover, but used the plastic one sent with the bumper for now.

      Great Looking Bumper

      Bought this for my 2015 Willys 2 door. Looks great! Getting lots of compliments on the textured black. Took me a few hours to install because the tools I had were not very sufficient to get into a few tough spots for original bumper removal. Once I got the original off, this new tube bumper went on quick and without any issues. Good stuff!
