Manufactured from 3/16" steel plate, sculpted to enhance the styling of the JK platform, stubby design does not over power the front of the Jeep. Integrated winch plate with fairlead mounts, integrated shackle mounts for recovery points and grill guard are included. Includes reinforced wings for additional strength and a braced hoop. 3 Light mounting tabs on hoop for auxiliary lights. 2 4" light pockets under winch plate with laser cut steel screen. Retains factory vacuum pump location. Easy bolt installation, no drilling required. Black textured power coat finish. Shown with optional JK-5123 skid plate.
This is an OK bumper, but not what I expected. Takes 2 to install, a 3rd is very helpful. MUST drill out frame horn holes to 1/2" TO allow for adjustment (THIS IS A MUST). Caution to be used, bumper mount bolts easy to strip. Very difficult to install center hoop, cannot use ratchet, need 2 box/open end wrenches, very tight working area. MUST INSTALL CENTER HOOP FIRST BEFORE BUMPER. DO NOT MAKE THIS MISTAKE!! Bumper sticks out significantly further than stock (Hence the reason you do not need to re locate the Vacuum canister) DO NOT throw away the OEM plastic gap/frame cover from the OEM bumper, YOU WILL NEED THIS (This is not noted on the instructions) so use caution you do not damage it during OEM bumper removal.You will want to re-cover the gap after install of this bumper. Now I know why in all of the pictures of this product, it is always a straight on photo or just slightly off angle, never a complete photo from the side. Due to the design of this bumper and the design of the OEM frame rails, there is a cross-member just under the frame horns. This is now completely visible when looking at this bumper from the side. This makes it look like the new bumper is unfinished and something is missing. I can live with it, but I would have figured the Mfgr would have done something about this as well as advised about the OEM gap plastic cover. This does not fit the contour of the new bumper very well and it looks even worse without covering the gap. ALSO, you should order the SKID PLATE at the same time. The Cross-Member is very visible with-out looking at it straight on, again, without the skid plate, it makes it look like something is missing. Considering the price, I got what I paid for and with the bumper and skid plate, I am still under a grand. So all things said, I would recommend this bumper for the price range. It is well built and a serious hunk of metal. I pity the person that hits my bumper in a parking lot..If you want something with a little more fit and finish, you may want to look at another bumper.
