Strong and Easy to Customize
I was looking for a non-winch bumper, and there are a lack of good choices. I paired this with XHD Bar purchased here and High Clearance Ends elsewhere. I was surprised how sturdy this is. Heavy, but lighter than some other bumpers. My bumper, bar, and ends probably come in about 75lbs. Installation was pretty easy, direct bolt on. The package arrived in perfect condition. My box did include an extra set of bolts. Don't know why. There are limited instructions, but this is not really hard to figure out. I installed this without help. The one bolt behind the vacuum pump is hard to get to, but that is not the fault of this bumper. All together about an hour and a half install. I would have preferred standard D-ring mount with this, but that is a small complaint. Quadratec LED fog lights (OEM fit) worked fine in this bumper and took about 5 minutes to install. The only real quality issue was that one of the bolts on the ends had a bad burr on the thread. I had to spend some time with a file to get the nut to thread on properly.Helpful (1)

Great, strong bumper. Easy to install. Small lesson learned. If you going to buy any of the modular ends, go ahead and attach them prior. Also look at the vacuum pump relocation kit as its a little trick to fit it back in there. Otherwise, strong, good looking replacement bumper to the plastic.Helpful (16)

Love it, looks awesome!
I absolutely love this bumper..the fact that it's a stubby and has the inserts for the fog lights had me sold! Took my husband about 2 hours to install. Makes my jeep look even more aggressive since it's gives full view of my 35's on both sides.. definitely recommend!Helpful (16)

Greatly Increases Front End Protection
This is a solid bumper. Fit was perfect once I figured out the D-Ring mounting blocks. Make sure you put the wider spaced holes on top as the instructions indicate or you will be unbolting everything to correct it. Jeep make it difficult to get into the tight space to tighten it down, but it can be done. I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting a stubby or ability to add optional ends later. I still haven't decided, but will probably go with the storage ends at a later time to secure tow ropes.Helpful (17)
Is it possible to install a winch plate on it if I ever need to?
We would not recommend installing a winch on this bumper, as it is not designed to handle that.
do they make a front skid plate that can be added to this bumper?
We do offer this skid plate which is designed for the Rugged Ridge front bumpers: https://www.extremeterrain.com/rugged-ridge-skid-plate-jk-180033.html.
Does this bumper require vacuum pump relocation bracket for install on 2017 Rubicon?
This bumper will not require a vacuum pump relocation bracket for installation.
