    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.

        would this bumper interfere with a blue ox base plate

        Is this a 4” tube bumper? Looking to mount light brackets.

        Is there a light bar that will easily mount to the RR Tube Front Bumper? Something actually designed to work with this specific bumper.

        • At this time there is nothing specific to this bumper for a light bar.

            Easy to install and looks awesome.

            Solid, easy to install w just 8 bolts. Took about 2.5hrs. Looks awesome and maintains use of the factory fog lights. My girl is my daily driver, and although she sees a lot of dirt roads in back country, I don't take her anywhere too crazy. If you don't need a winch, this is a great choice.

            Matching front face . . .

            Finally finished installing this front bumper, and I love it! It has that old school Jeep look, and I'm not going to be rock climbing any time soon, so this is a perfect bumper for me. That said, the printed instructions suck!. hard to see detail in the diagrams, and several steps they don't bother to tell you about. My biggest challenge was getting the old bumper off. Not as simple as disconnect fog lights and take off the bolts. Once I got the old one off, putting the new one on was a breeze. Not thrilled about the plastic piece, but the same product in metal would be a bear to install. I love this bumper, and the matching rear bumper.

            Great for Blue Ox tow plate.

            Awesome bumper. Just installed front and back and looks fantastic. Works great with Blue Ox base late for towing behind motor home. Just enough clearance. Cover plates really hide the mess, including the blue ox cables. Easy to install.

            Nice Fit, great looks!

            Bumper install was very straightforward, old bumper came off, new one went on. The instructions were not very helpful but it was also a very simple install so instructions weren't really necessary. Looks great on the jeep, I love the look.

            Front bumper thing.

            These are actually wicked cool. Install was a piece of cake. And a bonus - after I tore off the stock bumper I didn't really have a good place to put the thing, but my neighbor asked if he could have it because his wife had just scratched the heck out of her jeep bumper that SAME DAY. How cool is that?

            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.

            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.

            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.

            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.
