Rugged Ridge took the radical off-road look of our popular JL Arcus bumper and made it available for all devoted 2007-2018 Wrangler JK guys & gals. This patented design utilizes a high-strength 11-gauge steel shell surrounding a 1/4-inch thick steel winch plate, capable of holding most model winches up to a 12.5k lb. rating. We made sure the Arcus is no lightweight when it comes all those cool options you find on pricier bumpers either, only the Arcus Stubby Bumper Set makes them standard equipment. Take our massive 1-inch thick recovery hooks that literally scream HARDCOREeach hook is dual cross-drilled so they accept both 7/8 and 3/4-inch D-rings giving you a recovery option for any situation. Clever recesses in the bumper offer direct frame access for effective lifting of the Jeep with a hi-lift jack. Built-in fog light pockets accent the overall appearance and accept factory fog light assemblies. The Arcus Stubby Front Bumper features a high-quality satin black powder coat finish with a fine texture, because nobody said brawny can't be beautiful. Patent Pending.
Great stamped steel bumper. Know what you are getting with a stamped bumper. The tow hooks and winch plate are heavy duty. I would say the stamped part of the bumper is more of a cover which probably won't be able to take heavy abuse. However, the quality is great and the design looks awesome. Install was pretty easy with a second person helping get the bumper lined up to the mounts. Other than that, it was a breeze, I did this in my apartment drive way and took a couple hours to get the oem bumper off and this assembled and on.
