One of the many wonders of Jeep is the plethora of replacement bumper options available.
While your Jeep came with a bumper to satisfy the U.S. Governments Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) Part 581, we all look to replace our Jeep bumpers for other purposes.
Optimal winch mounting & improved off-road clearance
Jeep stepped up with the JK Rubicon Hard Rock Steel Bumper option. This bumper allows for a low and centered winch mounting location, as well as removable end caps to allow for optimal approach angle when off-road.
American Expedition Vehicles (AEV) offers a great JK full-width front bumper solution for the JK, with some special edition JK’s coming with AEV’s Tubeless Front Bumper from the Jeep factory!
Motor City Aftermarket now offers replacement Jeep JK/JL bumpers built with tank DNA!
If your JK has the standard OE front bumper like mine, you can, of course, mount a winch on top of the bumper, and Vertically Driven Products offers a VDP 31550 Stubby Bumper End Cap kit that can give you better off-road clearance
A Jeep replacement front bumper can also help to overcome certain obstacles, and actually improve your Jeeps ability in certain off-road situations if you choose a Stinger type front bumper.
A stinger may also help during your daily commute!
Other advantages of replacing your Jeep’s front bumper include additional auxiliary lightning locations, ORV flag mounting, and additional recovery points.
Ideal tire carrier, Hi-Lift Jack/Tool Carrier and additional recovery points
When you get to the rear of your Jeep, a bumper upgrade can make a tremendous difference!
Upgrading your rear bumper to incorporate a tire carrier takes a tremendous load off of your tailgate. A rear bumper upgrade can also offer you Hi-Lift Jack, tool storage options, and additional recovery points.
Upgrading the rear bumper of your Jeep also gives you the opportunity to add auxiliary/off-road lighting as well, for those times when you need to back up on a dark trail.
Complete a solid perimeter of your Jeep
Upgrading your front and rear bumpers can complete a solid protection perimeter of your Jeep, incorporating rock rails, that will make you Jeep even more capable, durable and enjoyable.
