    Review & Installation Video

    Review & Install Video

    I'm Ryan from extremeterrain.com and this is my review of the Smittybilt SRC Gen2 Front Bumper, fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs. Swapping out your factory front bumper for an aftermarket one is a great way to add features, style, and protection to the front of your Jeep, and a bumper like this one will provide all three of those. And this bumper, in particular, will be something that's a little bit unique because it is one of Smittybilt's newer offerings. This bumper is designed to go all the way from the crash bar, up to the frame horns. It gives you full-width coverage and, as I mentioned, a ton of different features. This bumper is built from three-sixteenths-inch steel that's covered in a textured black powder coat finish, which means it's going to hold up and resist rust and corrosion for a good long time, and it's going to be very, very strong. This bumper is heavy. And along with being really well built and really solid, as I mentioned, it does have quite a few features. The first thing you'll notice are these tubular corners, and that's something that makes this SRC bumper different from Smittybilt's XRC Gen2 Bumpers. This is a little bit wider and it has a little bit more protection, as well as the additional styling that's offered from these tubes. Both bumpers have D-ring mounts that are solidly welded and bolt directly into the frame horns, giving you plenty of strength for recovery points. They have spots for your OEM fog lights to bolt right into your new bumper, which is something I always look for in an aftermarket bumper for a JK. You already have the fog lights, they're already wired for it, it has the switch right in the cab. It's really nice to be able to just bolt your factory lights right in your aftermarket bumper, and this bumper allows you to do that. If you do want to add some additional lighting, you have the option to do that right up on top of this hoop. These light mount tabs are not your traditional tabs that just have one round hole in them. They're actually three separate oblong holes, which give you a lot of different options for different size light bars, as well as light pods. You're gonna have a lot more options with a setup like this than with a more traditional light mount tab. The bumper, of course, has a winch plate built right into it, good for up to a 12,000-pound winch, and it does have a little bit of that lower mounting point, which gives you a bit more of a sunken winch look. It's a little bit sleeker and, in my opinion, I like it a little bit better. Now, something that really sets this bumper apart from a lot of others on the market are these plastic panels that are on the front of it. Now, they are an ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene, which means they're going to be a very strong plastic and they're not going to fade in the UV light. However, if you do end up making contact with a rock on the plastic, they may get marred a little bit. Now, those are not covering up holes in the bumper. They're solid steel behind those, so you still have plenty of strength with the bumper, so in my opinion, those are going to be more of a styling cue than anything else, and it is something that really makes this bumper unique. So if you decide to install this bumper on your JK by itself or with the XRC Gen2 Rear Bumper, this is going to look good. Because this bumper does go all the way from the bottom of the crash bar up to your traditional mounting points on the frame horns, the installation for this is a little bit different. Smittybilt does ask you to drill a couple of holes in your Jeep and open up a couple of holes that are already to make them a bit larger. Now, this bumper does have a winch mount and it is incredibly heavy, so adding some additional mounting points isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it does make the install a little more involved and it will take a little bit more time. Of course, the first step in the installation is to remove your factory front bumper, and you'll do that by removing the eight nuts that hold it onto the frame rails. Once the factory bumper is removed, you can remove the factory fog lights and bolt them into your new bumper. At this time, if you're going to be installing a winch on your new bumper, I would recommend bolting it onto the winch plate. Now, that's gonna make this already heavy bumper even heavier, and you'll definitely need an extra set of hands to get it installed. However, bolting the winch to the bumper ahead of time makes it a lot easier to get to the winch mounting bolts than if you already have the bumper bolted onto the Jeep. Now that you have the bumper prepped for installation, you can go ahead and drill out those holes. There are four holes on each frame horn and Smittybilt asks you to open up one on either side. Just follow the instructions, and this is a pretty easy task. You want to have a half-inch drill bit or a five-eighths if you want to open up that hole a little bit more to give you a little bit of wiggle room. Once you have that hole drilled out on either side you can put the bumper in place and loosely bolt it up. At that point, you can use the holes that are in the bottom of the bumper as a guide to mark your crash bar and go ahead and drill those holes out as well. All of the hardware you need to get this bolted to the Jeep is included, so once you have everything in place just make sure it's all torqued down and tight, and you're good to go. And all the installation process should take you right around two hours because you do have to drill a couple of holes and you won't need any specialty tools, just a good socket set, a drill with a good sharp drill bit. This bumper is going to be a little bit more expensive than some of the other bumpers offered by Smittybilt and the other bumpers on the market in general. But to be honest with you, I do think it's actually worth it for this bumper. Now, it's incredibly well built, it does have a lot of features, even some that other bumpers don't have. And if you like the styling of this bumper, which is a little bit different than some of the other offerings available, I think that this is a great option to go with. Now, this is going to be very, very heavy, so you will have to worry about front end sag. Adding this much weight to the front of the Jeep can cause your front springs to sag a bit, especially if you have factory springs. If you already have a lift kit, those spring rates are usually a little bit higher and will help to hold up this weight. But because this is so heavy and especially if you're installing a winch, I wouldn't be surprised if you would need to add some spacers or some stiffer or longer springs to level out the Jeep. So if you're looking for a bumper that has unique styling, is packed full of features, and looks a little bit different than a lot of the other aftermarket bumpers on the market, especially because of the plastic plates on the front, this is a great bumper to take a look at. It is going to be a little bit expensive and it is very heavy, but it is a unique bumper, and if you like the looks, it's a good option. That's my review of the Smittybilt SRC Gen2 Front Bumper, fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs, that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.

    When We Say Redesign. You say Smittybilt SRC Front Bumper! It may not catch on as a pom-pom-worthy cheer, but it’s true and worthy of excitement. Smittybilt has completely redesigned the SRC Front Bumper so now it offers even greater defense in extreme rock crawling situations and adds more aggressive styling to boot for your 2007-2018 Wrangler JK.

    Smart Features. This Gen2 Front Bumper from Smittybilt includes an integrated winch mount that is capable of holding up to a 12,000-pound winch. The winch plate on the front bumper has been redesigned so now it sits lower, giving increased airflow to the radiator. You’ll also appreciate the D-ring mounts that are welded on both the inside and outside of the bumper and the light tabs that can hold a pair of 9" lights.

    Fender to Fender Protection. With the highest impact strength of any thermoplastic currently available, ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMW) provides superb abrasion-resistant protection. The corners extend to match factory fender points and the raised corners give better ground clearance, as well as improved entry and exit angles for even the most punishing situations.

    High-Quality Construction. To ensure optimal front-end protection, the center section of the bumper is constructed with a 3/16" cold rolled steel and the over rider and wings are made from 2" diameter, 0.120" wall tubing. Finished in a two-stage textured matte black powder coating, the unit won’t chip, fade or rust. A 5-year limited warranty backs this claim.

    Installation. Included with this Gen2 SRC Front Bumper is all of the necessary hardware, as well as easy-to-follow instructions. It’s a fairly simple bolt-on installation process with minimal modification required.

    Application. The redesigned Smittybilt SRC Gen2 Front Bumper is an ideal upgrade for all 2007-2018 Jeep Wrangler JK.

    Where would the license plate mount on this bumper?

    • Smittybilt does not offer a license plate mount specific to their Smittybilt SRC Gen2 Front Bumper. We would suggest using a license plate bracket that mounts to the winch fairlead, which you can purchase and install without having a winch or if you already have a winch it can mount there! We have the Rugged Ridge Roller Fairlead License Plate Mounting Bracket found here: https://www.extremeterrain.com/rugged-ridge-roller-fairlead-1123805.html and for a hawse fairlead we have the Rugged Ridge License Plate Mounting Bracket for Hawse Fairlead found here: https://www.extremeterrain.com/rugged-ridge-license-plate-mounting-bracket-for-hawse-fairlead-8717-yj-tj-jk.html.

      Great Bumper

      Heavy duty, will cause a little more rake in the front when installed with the Smittybilt XRC 9500lb. winch. Make sure to place the fog lights in before the winch. Took about 1.5 hours with a friend to install. Overall very easy to install with minimal tools.

      A little disappointed due to challenging install.

      Chose this front bumper for its coverage, protection, and looks. It is HEAVY, especially with a winch. Shipping was amazingly fast - turns out it was shipped from the same city I'm in. Instructions were ok, but not as good as I expected. The bumper needed spacers (washers) to offset it far enough from the grill to accommodate the Smittybilt X-20 Comp winch. I would have expected that this would not need to be done given both the bumper and winch were Smittybilt. Alignment and angle of two of the threaded mounting holes were off. It caused the bolts to strip and the threads inside the bumper to strip. Bolts are a metric size and thread pitch, so your local big box store probably doesn't stock replacements. I ended up having to tap the holes in the bumper using a standard 1/2"-13 size tap and get new standard 1/2" bolts. Tightening up the bottom inside nuts was difficult with the winch already mounted, but the holes in the bumper don't allow you direct access to the winch bolts (great for security, but a pain otherwise) so installing the winch after the bumper wasn't a good option. It took quite a bit longer to install than I expected and it really helps to have at least one other person to help lift it into place - it's heavy enough BEFORE you add the winch.

      Great Bumper For The Price

      I got the bumper mounted and it was everything I expected. Installation was simple, but requires some drilling. It's very sturdy and durable. Best to install with two people as the bumper has some weight to it and holding it up while trying to mount it is tough. It's the perfect bumper for those who don't like stubby bumpers, but want that extra clearance that a full length bumper won't give you.

      Solid bumper and easy install

      I was very pleased with how the product arrived, unphased by any banging around during shipping. Comes with more hardware then you will ever need to install it, especially if you reuse the stock spacers instead of using the washers SMITTYBILT provides. Fits my 10 inch black oak light bar perfectly and still provided space above the bully bar for the amber pods. Fits the SMITTYBUILT X20 10,000 winch very well. Only reason I cannot give a 4 star for fit is because getting the OEM lights in would require modifying the brackets, it is not a simple 1-1 plug and play as alluded to by the instructions. if someone has insight on how to make them fit, I would love to hear. But for now I am rolling around with no fog lights.
