I got this (11540.10) (w/winch mount) and a small bar over the winch, and the storage ends. Also put a Warn VR8000-S on it. Installation was pretty straight forward, but nothing is ever 100 as the you-tube vids or the printed instructions say. Took me most of all day, but I am not a mechanic and I was working completely by myself and I did add a Barricade massive skid plate which turned out not be compatible with the RR XHD so I had to remove it and that wasted a lot of time... Some people claim bolt-hole misalignment or diameter issues but I didn't have any of those problems.Minor fitment issue was that if I placed the bumper flush up against the frame then the Warn VR8000 winch power wires would just barely kiss the front fascia grill; I did not want that as vibration over the years would result in either pwoer cord insulation rubbing away of the front fascia would have been scuffed. So instead I reused the stock spacer pieces of metal that came with the stock bumper, they are maybe ~1/8" thick. This pushed the XHD forward an eighth which cleared the winch power cords away from the grill. That was great. HOWEVER, this meant one of the forward mounting holes for the over-winch (bull?)bar came to rest right over a small (1/8" high?) rise/imprfection in the frame. This means that when tightening the screws for the bar that its screw bottomed out (on the rise in the frame) before it was fully seated flush. Monday morning quarterback says I should just cut the screw short. Duh. But as that was one of the final things to do, at the end of a day, I just torqued it down hard. The result was it raised (warped) the bumper up about a sixteenth of an inch. Imperceptable to anyone except me who witnessed the sheet metal flex as I torqued the screw. Minor issue. But for the amount we pay for these things I would expect none issues! The bumper has been on for two weeks, daily-driver stuff for wife/daughter mall crawlers, and the powder coat has held up superbly to highway debris. Have yet to kill 1-3 inch saplings off-road so cannot report on that yet. But it feels solid, is heavy, and mounts tight and solidly. There is absolutely no bend nor flex anywhere in the system (bumper/ends/bar/mount) when I stand on it or lift up on it. The whole jeep moves, not the bumper. Seems very tough, very quality. No problems with the Warn VR series winch mounting. One more minor problem: relocating the vacuum pump. Seems like you have to decide between either the pump body contacting the cross-member, or the rubber hose contacting the cross-member. Neither are desirable from a long-term vibrations perspective. Seems the RR-provide relocating brackets are not "stiff" enough to prevent vibration such that one or the other will be subjected to long term rubbing/vibration in its new location inside the cross-member.Helpful (7)

Rugged Ridge XHD Bumber
I love the quality of this bumper but it was not easy install on my 2017 Jeep Willy. I had cut off a 1/4 inch from the Jeep bracket to make the bumper.Helpful (8)

Absolutely love this number. Yes it may be a little pricey, but it gives you so many options. We all know that as a jeep owner we're always changing thing's about our rigs, this bumper changes whenever you want to go in a different directionHelpful (11)

Amazing upgrade. Great product.
Very sturdy and strong. Do not feel like it will ever be dented. The stock ones were too ugly and plain for my style. I prefer these very much so and i am very happy with what i paid for.Helpful (11)

Great value and looks
Bumper fit perfectly on '13 Rubicon Unlimited. Winch mounted without any problems to the bumper. I love the look of the modular XHD front bumper as is but I also added the stubby ends to finish it out. Great product!Helpful (10)

Modular as it says!
As the base for all your options it gives you choices. I went with high clearance ends and a loop bar. Soon I will be adding a winch. All accessories fit with out any problems....I especially like the large over-sized pull rings.Helpful (12)

Super Heavy Duty
This bumper is unbelievably strong! I was in a collision about two weeks after my initial install and at a glance, you could not even tell anything was out of the ordinary with my bumper.... the other jeep's bumper on the other had was toast! this bumper does a great job protecting your winch from damage and is the sturdiest subby bumper I have ever seen. I am extremely pleasedHelpful (11)

Hardest part was taking off the factory bumper I also bought the brush guard and the 8500 pound winch the winch fits tight but the port is close to the brush guard so you need to use the side mount to get it to fit other than that it's amazingHelpful (11)

definite good buy!
I have to agree with everyone else. This is a nice bumper and easy install. I could have put it on faster, but I took a lot of pictures and started out with a manual rachet. Use an air rachet and you can cut it to a quarter of the time. I had put the ends on before mounting which made it a little difficult to get to the mounting nuts, but this wasn't a big deal once I pulled out the air rachet. Thanks to Extreme Terrain for a quick delivery!Helpful (11)

Great bumper--easy install--heavy duty metal
Great bumper is well made and a sinch to install. The ports for the lights are supposed to have four studs on which you screw nuts to hold on the lights. One of them only had two but seems to hold the light fine. Great finish, winch fits well, now I just need to order the pre-runner tubes to add on.Helpful (11)
