Modeled after our XHD Bumper System, but with the more budget-oriented consumer in mind, Rugged Ridge set out to create an affordable yet strong and functional bumper system. The All Terrain Modular Bumper System is built from black powder coated steel and has a renewed focus on design and functionality. This 3mm thick steel front bumper has a low profile, modular design, and allows you to mount a winch plate. For use with aluminum accessories only.
I bought this because I wanted the back bumper to match the front "stubby" bumper that I also purchased. I was a little disappointed because I could not keep my factory tow hook installed, but I'm getting around that by purchasing a draw bar for the tow hitch with a d-ring.
The hitch bolts on my factory hitch were too long for the bumper to be installed. I could not push the bumper in far enough for the frame bolts to align The solution was to put 4 washers between the tow hitch bolt heads and the frame to shorten the bolt length on the other side. That allowed enough travel for the install. The install instructions say you will have enough travel to customize the position for the look you want. That's not possible if you want to keep your factory tow hitch.

So far it looks like a good value
My son bought this bumper for his Jeep when he was rear-ended. It was easy to install and looks good. When my daughter backed into a post this was a cheaper replacement than a stock bumper. Since they haven't had anything happen to them yet, I can't say how good the construction is. I took a star off since they don't include the eight bolts for the brackets to connect to the frame, I had to re-use the stock bolts.
