Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

I'm Ryan from extremeterrain.com and this is my review of the Smittybilt SRC Front Grille Guard Bumper, fitting all 1987 to 2006 Wranglers. Now, this is called a grille guard front bumper, but don't be fooled. It is a full front bumper that replaces your factory bumper. It's not an add-on. This is for any of you who like the look of this particular grille guard style bumper and don't need the added protection of a heavy-duty plate steel off-road bumper. If you're just looking for something to change up the look at the front of your Jeep and something that has a couple of light mount tabs on it for some aftermarket lighting or for even some factory fog lights that you wanna relocate, this is a nice option. This isn't going to provide quite as much protection as one of those more heavy-duty off-road bumpers, but it's also going to be a little bit less expensive. This bumper is built from two-inch-diameter, 0.12-inch wall thickness steel tubing. The whole thing is covered in a textured black powder coat finish that'll match a lot of the other aftermarket accessories that you may have on your Jeep. Now, this bumper does have a couple of features that I do like. One is that it has these D-ring mounts right up front. I really like using D-rings for a recovery point because it's a very secure connection, as opposed to a tow hook, which the strap could always pop off of. This bumper also has, not just two, but actually four total light mount tabs, two down here and two up on the top, so you can relocate any factory fog lights you may have or add some auxiliary lighting onto the bumper as well. This bumper doesn't have a winch mount built into it. However, it is designed to allow you to add a winch mount and winch onto the Jeep with this bumper in place. That's why this area is so large in the front here, it'll allow you to have full access to your winch. Getting this bumper installed on your Jeep is a really simple process because this is designed to be completely bolt-on, so you don't have to drill any holes, and in fact, it uses all of your factory hardware for installation. The first step in the process is to remove your factory front bumper, and in order to do that, if you have a TJ, you'll be removing the six-torx bolts that are holding it in place. There are going to be two on the top and one on the bottom of each frame rail for a total of six bolts. Once you have that factory bumper removed, you'll simply slide this over the frame rails and reinstall that factory hardware. It's a very, very simple process. If you are going to be installing a winch plate and a winch, you'll do that after this bumper is installed. The whole installation shouldn't take you more than an hour, and the only tools you'll need are a socket set and some large torx bits. I think this bumper is priced fairly for what it is. It doesn't have quite as many features or offer quite as much protection as a more heavy-duty plate steel bumper, but it's also a little bit less expensive. So if this is the look you're after and you're good with the light mounts and the recovery points, but not having a built-in winch plate or some of the other features that some other, more heavy-duty, more expensive bumpers have, I would definitely recommend taking a look at this bumper. So if you like the look of this front grille guard bumper, it's a really solidly built piece that I think is definitely worth a look. So that's my review of the Smittybilt SRC Front Grille Guard Bumper, fitting all 1987 to 2006 Wranglers, that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.

Durable Construction and Finish. The Smittybilt SRC Front Bumper is constructed from high-quality steel tubing and is robotically welded to offer a durable performance. It features textured black powder-coat finish with zinc undercoating.

Functional Design. The front bumper has high-degree approach angles and flared corners for high ground and tire clearance. The tube and steel plates of this bumper protect the front end of your vehicle from damage. This front bumper has four tabs to mount lights.

Installation. This front bumper can be mounted directly to your vehicle without any drilling.

Fitment. The Smittybilt SRC front bumper is compatible with 1987-2006 Jeep Wrangler YJ and TJ models.

Note: Requires a winch plate in order to use a winch on this bumper.

What Winch Plate do I need to use with this bumper and do I need to use the raised plate or reg plate?

JustinE

  • For the Smittybilt SRC Front Grille Guard Bumper you would want to use the Smittybilt Winch Plate for mounting a winch. You would want to utilize the raised style with this bumper for most winches.

When installed on the Jeep can someone tell me how many inches the stinger bar causes the bumper to stick out beyond the factory bumper? Thanks

AndrewH

Any chance it will fit on my 86 cj7 ?

EdS

  • We only sale items for the YJ's and up for now, but if you want to try and fit this bumper on the CJ, you would need to re-drill the holes to mount this bumper and use spacers since the CJ frames are a bit smaller than the YJ.

    Unlike others I ran into no issues with the mounting holes not lining up. The bumper works perfect with the smittybilt winch and winch plate. Ive used the bumper to winch a couple times and so far so good!

    Budget Bumper, bring out your drill

    Removed stock unit and installed this one in less than an hour. One bolt hole on bottom was off and had to be redrilled. Looks great with HiLites, but i had to make spacers and longer bolts because the mounts are too low on the bar so the lights cant be aimed down or straight forward, only slightly upward. All in all, not bad for the money and looks great.

    WOW!!!

    This bumper is great. The look it adds to my jeep is awesome. Its extremely well built and extremely easy to install. Removed 4 bolts, remove old bumper, slide new bumper on, tighten 4 bolts, DONE! My buddies are jealous now of the price I spent for a tough bumper that looks and is built just as well as their $300-$400 bumpers.

    WHOA!

    this bumper has completely changed the look of my jeep i love it hands down. installing this bad boy went really easy using the factory bolts that held my old bumper you just remove those slip on this bad boy and tighten 4 bolts and your done! if your planning on mounting a winch be sure you have a winch mounting plate! the only other thing is the 4 light mounts that come installed on the bumper are a little small for my 6 inch KC lights bolt it was an easy fix drilled them a little big touched up using some truck bed liner and pow lights are mounted!

    Stoked

    I'm pretty happy with this bumper. It was an easy install. My only complaint is that the bumper only utilized 4 of 6 bumper mounting bolts. I had to go get 2 washers to insert in the gap between the mounting threads at the bumper due to extra play between the two. Smittybilt provided "spacers" but did not give any direction on their application. They were too thick to take the place of my washers. Ended up bolting them onto the upper rear empty mounting locations. They did fit in cut out slots on the bumper up top. But why not just have the bumper deeper to utilize all 6 bolts for strength. This was for my wife's DD TJ so I'm not concerned. I got her this bumper because she wrecked my 00 Cherokee into an ice wall going 45. My fat bumper saved my jeep and only burned out one dog light bulb. So she wanted a bumper. Good light mounts and overall finish and quality.
