The Rugged Ridge Arcus Front Stubby Bumper for Wrangler JL and Gladiator JT is anything but your typical budget-minded bumper. The Arcus represents a daring design departure from the typical, with an alluring stamped-steel body usually reserved for bumpers costing twice the price. 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 (accepts Hawse or roller-style fairleads). 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 the massive 1-inch thick recovery hooks that literally scream HARDCORE…each hook is dual cross-drilled so they accept both 7/8 and 3/4-inch D-rings. 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 both factory Sport & Sahara fog light assemblies with no modification. Of course, LED lighting can be fitted using available mounting brackets (11232.23/11232.24). 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.
Instructions were clear to read and with illustrations. It’s well worth the price! Great looking bumper looks like a tough OEM product.
Nice stubby bumper, light weight, hardcore hooks and nice recessed winch placement
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.
Great style and improvement over stock bumper, easy enough to install. You need to splce into the fog lights to lenghthen the harness to reach the location on this bumper but being able to keep fog lights and recess the winch without being a huge bumper was what we wanted. Ordered two, one for my wifes Jeep and one for mine, the only concern I have is if it holds up to my kind of off road use, or will it crumple. This isn't armor but it does feel pretty tuff.
