The XRC Bumpers have high degree approach angles and raised corners to maximize ground clearance. Manufactured from 3/16 cold rolled steel and then robotically welded to the exact specifications. Welds are ground down and smoothed out, then a two stage textured matte black powder coat is applied for the ultimate look. The front stinger is 1.75 tubing and has two light tabs that can hold up to two 9 lights. it is unique design is capable of mounting up to a 10,000 lb. winch with the option of running an aluminum or roller fairlead. Each bumper is developed to be a complete bolt on and requires no modifications to the vehicle.
I purchased the Smittybilt XRC Rock Crawler, Bumper from 4 Wheel Parts in Vegas, for my 1988 YJ Wrangler a couple of months ago and I love it.
Although I did have some trouble mounting it up.
Apparently if your jeep was assembled in Canada (like mine was) the bolt pattern is different.
The bottom bolts went right in but I fought the top bolts for about a hour before realizing they were never going to fit and calling the Smittybilt teck.
After he told me about the specifications being different for Jeeps assembled in Canada, I decided I was going about this the wrong way.
first I mounted the Smittybilt 9,500 winch to the bumper before even starting the bumper install.
then I bolted up the bottom bolts. I then used a 2x3x1/4" inch steel plate on the top of each frame rail and welded both sides up solid.
The bumper turned out beautiful and is about as solid as it gets. Granted I wouldn't look forward to having to take it off at this point, but because I like the looks and the workmanship of the XRC bumper I never plan on changing it.
By the Way. I'd love to see somebody try to steal the bumper or the wench now that it's on. JUST SAYING

I had a small accident and needed to replace my front bumper, I found I got a great product and extremely simple to install. Great overall fit and I am getting ready to buy a smittybilt rear bumper and I hope to add a winch as soon as possible as well. I also received the bumper the day after placing my order. Great customer service.

Looks good on 2005 rubicon
Went on easy if adding winch,assemble winch first,no way to mount winch when bumper is on, was able to use all 6 bolts with no problem,
By Rubicon1081 from Tampa
need to tell about what you need
does not fit 99 tj wrangler without modifications and you cannot use existing bolts because they are too big to fit in the small space provided and the bolt holes do not line up properly

Nice Looking Bumper
I have been wanting to get this bumper since I got my Rubicon almost 3 years ago. Just came back after being stationed in Japan for 2 years. I replaced the stock bumper and this is worth every penny. FYI if you're getting this bumper with a winch PLEASE MAKE SURE you install the winch to the bumper before installing the bumper to the Jeep. There is no way you'll be able to fit you hand to put the screws in!!! Highly recommended A+++

Bumper looks and performs great. Fits a winch and lights perfectly. Awesome buy
By Epp from San Diego, CA
Untested yet, but appearance is amazing
The XRC front bumper is even more intimidating than it seems on the screen. This is a head turner and you have no fear of crumpling your front end with this beast on the front. Easy install. Winch fits perfect, holds lights. Sturdy and beautiful!

As Advertised, Does Not Disappoint
The weight of the bumper alone lets you know this is one bad (!) sweet piece of awesomeness you are going to add to your vehicle. Holes line up perfecct, more than ample hardware to install, and great attractive cosmetics lead to a product well designed and produced.

Nice finish on this bumper, good hardware comes with it, fits perfect and is durable.
Will the XRC work with my 2004 Jeep Unlimited & can I use my existing stock running lights and them fit the tabs with no extra work. Thanks, Chris ><>

2000 Jeep Wrangler TJ Sahara. Jeep currently has a Bestop HighRock 4x4 front winch bumper w/ D-ring attachment points. I just purchased the Smittybilt Tow Bar Kit #87450 thinking I could tow my Jeep by the D-ring mounts on the HighRock bumper, however, I've been informed that the HighRock bumper is not suitable for towing from the D-ring mounts. Is this XRC bumper #S/B76800 suitable for towing - FROM THE D-RING MOUNTS?
The Ricksta! from Castro Valley, Ca. on
The S/B76800 is tow rated and can be towed from the d-ring mounts.
