Make sure that your Jeep is as tough as any trail you’re likely to tackle. Plastic bumpers might look good, but run into anything more than bug guts and you’ll see why you need the strength of steel on your rig. That’s why we recommend you keep the flimsy plastic in the picnic basket, not on your Jeep. Rugged Ridge HD Series Bumpers are trail-tested, proven designs that pack a serious punch. Whether you prefer the narrow, agile angles of our HD Stubby Front Bumper or the burly look of the Full-Width, you will love the aggressive off-road presence they provide. Engineered to mount most any aftermarket winch for greater versatility and well-equipped to perform in the clutch with built-in jack lifting points at every corner and massive recovery hooks, each one dual-drilled to work with both 3/4 and 7/8-inch shackles (shackles not included). We’ve even designed an HD Rear Bumper to go out back, for a highly-functional, total bumper package. Add a beautiful satin black powder coat finish and the confidence of our Limited 5 Year Warranty and the choice becomes clear. Rugged Ridge HD Bumpers are the best-built bumpers in their price class…or any class.
Looks great. Obviously as a bolt-on addition to the bumper, it's not really structural. But it does look good. I just wish they had left a little more clearance between the bull bar and the tow hook on the bumper. It is difficult to get the loop of my kinetic rope over the tow hook. But it's OK for my soft shackle.
4.08/10 difficult to install but looks amazing
When I factory ordered my ‘22 jlur I optioned for the front camera. So I was looking for a stubby bumper that sits the winch down inside and keeps my factory fog light. This fit the bill perfect!! When I got to install the bumper it gave me some trouble, the “bolts” that hold the bumper to the frame are biggest pain in the rear I’ve ever had!! But after 4 or so hrs it finally came together and now I can’t be more happy!

5.0Excellent addition to my JK
I was looking for a solid front bumper and I purchased the Rugged Ridge XD Stubby and I saw that they had an option of a Bull bar or the X Striker bar. After looking at the X Striker bar I thought it added to the looks. Glad I got it; it really finishes off the front-end of 2015 JK Rubicon.

1.0Bumper not fitting
It does not fit a 2021 Gladiator, after doing more research on other sites they do not list this as fitting a 21 model JT. Rugged Ridge customer service sucked never returned call or multiple emails. Bumper sent back.

5.0Got rid of Plastic Jeep Bumper
I bought my jeep last year with the intention of installing a bumper of my choice. First priority it must accept a Hi-lift jack to raise the vehicle. Must accept shackles (most after market bumpers do). An of course, accept a winch without extra plates. This one has everything I needed in a bumper. I had 4WD install the bumper and a real nice Smittybilt Gen3 12k Comp Series Winch with Synthetic Cable. Gave me a great price for install and parts. 4wd had my jeep for 1 day everything installed correctly and cables tucked away nicely. Great service.
I did have a one concern. Someone stated that electronic sway bar disconnect would have problem with this bumper. Tried it out works great. Would I have this bumper and winch combo installed again... Yep! The Jeep is a 2021 Unlimited Rubicon. Oh, why did I get that winch when one that would pull 8-9k would work just as well? If I need the extra pulling power... I've got it.
Fit was perfect, and factory fog lights fit without any issues. However, installation was very difficult. Trying to keep the bolts in place during mounting was difficult. The hole tolerance and bolt diameter are too tight, one little misalignment and it drives the bolt back again, and again, and again.
Bumper looks awesome!
