When you need the toughest, most durable bumper system ever created, look to the Smittybilt Classic Rock Crawler Series. These heavy duty bumpers are designed for off road use and abuse. Zinc under-coated, Dual Stage durable powder coat painted 1/4 inch steel plate for long life and protects your front end from those large rock out croppings. Each bumper has been designed for the off road enthusiast with sloping ends for greater tire travel and enhanced entry and exit. Available in Textured Black only.
This is a great bumper. The problem is that even after posting a question asking if it is a bolt on item and having a specialist state "this is a bolt on part…" it is not. Copied from the instructions-"Step 2: Drill out the top outer hole in the front frame mounting plates to ½' (Fig A, B). Step 4: Using the four square holes on the bottom of the front bumper as a guide, center punch and drill through the factory cross member using a ½" drill bit." You also have to cut about ¼" from the frame crossmember (at least on my 2014 JK) in order for the bumper to fit. All of the listed steps above are not "Bolt On" in my book. Granted, they are not major modifications if you have a Dremel and drill with a ½" metal bit, but they are modifications so this is NOT a bolt on product. Again, once the modifications are done, and the bumper is mounted…it is a great product!! Another issue though is that they loosely package an 80# bumper in a cardboard box. Obviously the box will not hold up during shipping so in my case there were several holes in the box and all of the hardware (bolts, nuts, washers, etc…) were missing. Customer service was great and contacted Smittybuilt to have the hardware shipped out, but it is a few more days before the mounting could be done.

A little more work than bolt on...
Requires some drilling and cutting of the frame cross member...

Good bumper for running the back roads
Nice bumper for the price, although it didn't fit my TJ very well at first, because there's only one hole on top of each side to put a bolt through, instead of the two holes on each side like the stock bumper has. But I did order a light bar to go with it and that bracket had the two holes on each side, so I took the washer that came with the bumper, ground down one side a bit and used it as a spacer on top, mounted the light bar and tightened down all four bolts. Worked pretty well. The bumper was also small enough that it wouldn't obstruct the spade end of a shovel, so I took the two inside bolts, cut them down an inch and that gave me enough space to slide a shovel through the frame tube.

The Power coat is cool textured, the holes to mont for the tj were good for the off road light and no drilling

With a Winch Plate
The 76741 is pictured, but will not work on the 2012 without moving the vacuum pump. The same with the 76742. The 76743 has been re-engineered to work with the 2012 without moving the vacuum pump! It just bolts right in. The skid plate doesn't line up very well with the crossmember that it is supposed to bolt to, but it is easily fixed.

Great Basic Bumper
Installed one of these on the front of my YJ to replace the stock bumper that was bent when I got it. Mounted easily and looks like it'll do the job. I added tow hooks 'cause I like the look and because it was cheaper than getting the bumper with D-rings. I'd get the rear bumper with D-rings, though.
I have a stock 2014 Jeep unlimited sport, will this bolt on or will I need to modify?

I have a smittybilt #76741 on my 2008 JK. I purchased a Harbor Freight" Badlands" 12,000 Lbs winch. What is recomended to mount that winch on that bumper? Thanks
no from on
Hello no and thank you for your question! Smittybilt Classic Rock Crawler Front Bumper with D-ring Mounts in Textured Black Powder Coat could use the winch plate S/B2804 to mount the winch to your bumper.
