The new XRC Gen2 bumpers have been completely redesigned with more aggressive styling and heavy duty features, giving you the ultimate performance for rock crawling. These stubby bumpers provide increased clearance and have angled corners for more aggressive approach angles in extreme conditions - perfect for vehicles running oversized tires. The redesigned solid D-ring and jack point mounts are welded on the inside and out, and feature an integrated recovery point for easy access. This new bumper also allows the use of most OE fog lights. The winch plate has been placed lower for greater airflow to the radiator, while the new overrider is 2" diameter and has integrated mounts for additional lighting. The XRC Gen2 is available in the new Light Texture finish.
Great Bumper, had one on my TJ too. Solid Bumper!!
Compact, great wheel clearance, really durable, excellent design, and top notch build quality. This bumper is going to outlast the Jeep.
Ordered this somewhat last minute as a Christmas gift. They received it and were able to install it 2 days before Christmas! What a pleasant surprise! All the sales people I dealt with were kind, nice and patient. Highly recommend this establishment!
I thought the quality was excellent. I thought the instructions could have been more specific to a Gladiator Rubicon. The installation of the fog lights could be made easier with different hardware. All in all it’s a good bumper and would buy it again and recommend it to others.
I bought the Smittybilt Gen 2 XRC front bumper for my Gladiator. It looks good. It is really well built. I also mounted a 12,000 lb. winch to it. When off road I noticed I need to increase the spring rate in the front, as it bottoms out quicker now with all the weight.
Love the bumper and winch. I didn't have time to inspect the bumper at the the 4W parts shop but once I got home I realized that there was a dent in it. I was not happy that they didn't notice it when it was being installed. Other than that I am happy with it
I would say a very heavy bumper with marginally acceptable install instruction. Many parts left over making you wonder what you forgot. The lower frame mount brackets had me stumped but finally figured it out. The tiny Allen screws for the fog lights are horrible for guys with big mitts. I also think the top bar would have been way cleaner without light brackets.
This bumper is fantastic! Looks so much better in person, I would definitely recommend. The staff at 4 Wheel Parts did a outstanding job installing.

Q: Will this bumper fit a 2021 gladiator? Answer this question
A: I installed this bumper on my Gladiator. It is very heavy. You need two people to lift and line up with the frame bolts. Put the winch on first before you install the bumper. I used a 12K synthetic rope winch. My Gladiator is a diesel. The Gladiator bottoms out on every little bump after. I have since installed a 2.5 Teraflex lift. After the Teraflex lift it rides awesome.

Q: How much does this bumper weigh? Answer this question
A: I am new to off roading and at the time I bought the bumper I didnt consider weight. This bumper is heavy around 100lbs.then add the winch and it makes a big difference. OEM shocks could not handle the weight for seious off roading. Last the approach angle is not the best. BUT I dont thing youll find a stronger bumper at this price.

Q: Will the Badlands Apex 12000 winch fit on this bumper? Answer this question
A: Yes, I installed one on my Gladiator Rubicon Ecodiesel. Just for the record my Badlands winch has the synthetic rope. The weight add of both the bumper and the winch. Is causing my Gladiator to bottom out easily when off road.
Answered by Dave from Lake Forest California on 06/03/2021
A: It should. These bumpers have the standard winch mounting footprint found on most winches in the industry.

Q: Will the factory LED fog lights fit this bumper off a 2022 Unlimited Sport JLU? Answer this question
A: As far as i know. With my 2021 Gladiator the fog lights were a direct swap. So far as i knoe Jeep has not changed anything with the design.
