      Review & Installation Video

      I'm Ryan from, and this is my review and installation of the Smittybilt SRC Stinger Front Bumper with Winch Plate, fitting all 2007 and up JKs. Today we're gonna talk through the installation of this bumper, which I would give a very simple one out of three wrenches because this is designed to bolt directly onto your JK without the need to drill or cut anything. We're also going to talk through the construction and a few of the features of this bumper.A stubby bumper like this is really designed for those of you who are running a big 37-inch tire on your JK and need some additional clearance so that the tire doesn't contact the bumper when you're making turns or when you're flexing off road. However, a lot of you just like this stubby-bumper look because it does make your JK look a lot more like an off-road vehicle. That, combined with the stinger sticking off the front, gives your Jeep a really tough and rugged look. This bumper combines that look with a few other features as far as recovery points and winch mounts that make this a very functional and good-looking bumper. This stinger bumper is made of three-sixteenth-inch cold rolled steel that's covered in a textured-black powder coat finish, and the stinger is made of two-inch round tubing. Now, the main purpose of a stinger originally was for when you're doing some really hardcore off-roading and coming down a ledge, that if you start to flip forward, the stinger would hit the ground and kick you to one side or the other, keeping you on your tires. Now, I know a lot of us aren't doing that type of wheeling, but a lot of you are still interested in the look. So, this stinger will definitely give you that look. However, I wouldn't expect it to be strong enough to really hold up to the type of abuse that it would have to go through if you were about to roll over your Jeep. This does have a couple of gussets built into it, but again it's not going to be the strongest stinger possible.As far as other features of this bumper, right in the name it says that this does have a winch plate built into it, which is a great feature because you don't need to purchase any additional hardware to get a winch mounted on your bumper. Simply bolt it up to the existing winch plate and you're good to go. The bumper also has a couple of recovery points right up on the front that bolt through the bumper onto the frame horns, giving you really strong recovery points. Now, even though this has a winch, those recovery points are gonna be really helpful because you can use a snatch block to a tree, to double the pulling power of your winch, or use another strap, depending on your recovery situation. Because this is a stubby front bumper, it does not retain the factory fog lights. There just isn't enough room on the bumper. However, Smittybilt does provide you with a couple of holes up on the top of the bumper so you can mount some auxiliary lights that have a standard single-post mount. Like I said before, this is a very simple one out of three wrench installation because this is designed to bolt directly onto your Jeep. So the first step in the installation process is removing your factory front bumper which you'll do by first removing the splash shield, then removing the frame cover and finally removing the eight nuts that are holding your factory bumper in place. Don't forget to unclip your fog light wiring harness and your fog light bulbs themselves, before removing the bumper from the Jeep. After that, it's a simple matter of setting the new bumper over the frame horns and using the included hardware to attach it to the vehicle. Now, if you are going to be installing a winch on this bumper, I do recommend bolting the winch to the bumper while it's on the ground and then putting the bumper-winch combination onto the Jeep. It is going to be a lot heavier. However, it can be very difficult to get to the winch mounting bolts once the bumper is already bolted onto the vehicle. One nice thing about this stubby bumper is that even though it has the winch plate built into it, you do not need to relocate your vacuum pump. This does have a small notch cut out of the winch plate, so no need to relocate that vacuum pump. This will bolt right in place. The whole installation shouldn't take you more than an hour to get finished, and you won't need any specialty tools, just some hand tools. Smittybilt is known for making armor products that fit into a lot of budgets. This is not going to be a bumper that's at the top of the price range, but it's also not going to have all of the features or the build quality that warrants that price either. This is going to be a well-built product that also looks good, but it'll leave some money in your pocket for some other mods. So if you need a stubby front bumper for the additional tire clearance and you like to have a stinger for the looks, this is going to be a really nice package that also integrates a winch mount and won't break the bank. So that's my review of the Smittybilt SRC Stubby Front Bumper with Winch Plate, fitting all 2007 and up JKs, that you can find right here at

        Smittybuilt section front stinger

        This bumper is built tough and looks great. Customer service was great came quicker than showed. Easy installation. My opinion smittybuilt is hard to beat and extreme terrain is a great company to do business with.

        Easy install but make sure you attach the plate first, otherwise you're stuck in some funny angles. Looks great!

        Awesome, super easy install,

        install the skid plate before you bolt on. I made the mistake of installing the bumper then the skid plate, not fun. 3 holes need to be drilled into the frame to connect the bottom of the skid plate. overall super easy install. hardest part was removing the stock bumper. took an hour to remove the bumper, 20 min to get the new bumper on, and an hour to get the skid plate on (had to remove bumper, install skid, reinstall bumper). overall super easy. I zipped my license plate onto the hole for the fairlead since I don't have winch yet,

        Solid Setup

        The whole thing looks great and feels great. I've seen other rides in the area with this "bumper" as well and I can say it looks good on a variety of Jeeps. The installation went very smooth, but I would recommend having a second person to help lift it onto the frame and get the first couple of bolts in. Along with this, make sure you attach the small skid plate to the winch plate before you mount it as it will save you trouble when drilling the three holes and attaching it to the frame. In short its a very good substitution for the stock bumper even though it sadly does not have a place for fog lights. I can't wait to add a winch and have things looking and operating even better.

        It'll work

        The bumper is well made and bolted on easily,there was a half dollar size dent on the corner of the bumper,deep enough to have blister the finish to bare metal,but I wasn't gonna go through the hastle and expense of returning it.i thought the top of the bumper should have had more coverage.looks unfinished when complete.all in all I'd buy this bumper again

        whistles going down the road like you wouldn’t believe. I bought three racket balls and crammed them in the 3 holes. Fixed the problem but would be nice if they weren’t needed.

        Fits Great

        Fit great and the instructions were very clear. If you get a winch mount it and get the wiring harness hooked up before mounting bumper or else you will be taking it back off

      What Smittybilt rear bumper would match this one ?

      I currently have the VERY well made Barricade HD with front skid plate on my 2018 JK. If I decided to buy this Stinger bumper, can the skid plate be used?

      • No, that skid plate will not be compatible with this bumper.

      Is there a way i could put my license plate on here somehow?

      • This will not have a front license plate mounting location. We would recommend a fairlead license plate mount for the best results.

      I just want to confirm this fits the JL, as other sites state that it does not.

      • We have had customers install on the JL with no drilling needed.
