After replacing the original tires, the next modification for many off-roading enthusiasts do is replace the factory bumper with a more capable Jeep Wrangler front bumper. This necessary upgrade performs a number of different tasks, depending on how they are used. First and foremost, they protect the front end from natural off-road obstacles like rocks, stumps, and boulders. The front bumper of your Wrangler should also be used to support a winch mount
and the recovery gear
that is needed to pull your vehicle to safe ground when it gets stuck. Some Wrangler bumpers
will also accommodate light bars and auxiliary lighting systems that can be essential if you travel at night.
