As tough as they may be, a standard Jeep JK is not designed to withstand all the rigors of off-roading. Natural obstacles like mud, snow and rocks will invariably get in your way. Because of this, most off-roading veterans have had the unpleasant experience of getting stuck in the mud. To extricate the JK, you must have towing and recovery equipment
, also known as the fifth wheel for any off-roader. A standard Jeep JK bumper, however, may not be able to withstand the thousands of pounds of force that are required to pull a vehicle to solid ground. The recovery equipment can only be operated if they are attached to a sturdy, aftermarket front bumper. Stubby bumpers are not only strong enough to hold up to a winch, but won't get hung up on obstacles on the trail.
