Jeep JK Stubby Rock Crawler Front Bumper
Are you tired of all the bulky and ugly JK Wrangler bumpers on the market that weigh too much and make your JK look like the front of a semi?!
Dave's Customs has your answer. Our JK stubby rock crawler front bumper is a functional, simple styling, low profile, and high clearance design.
The bumper is fabricated from CNC cut and CNC formed 3/16" and 1/4" thick HRP&O steel. Our bumper design is lightweight, but incredibly strong with the formed lip behind the winch mounting area and an internal gusset inside the bumper.
These bumpers are crafted by professional welders and fabricators, so overall fit and attention to detail are second to none.
These bumpers are designed to be a factory replacement on the 2007-2014 with a simple bolt on design. No cutting or altering of the Jeep frame like some competitors.
Bumper can be purchased with gusseted, low profile front hoop (DCUJKFBMW) designed to protect the winch, grill, and radiator area, which is made from heavy-duty 1 3/4" x .120 wall DOM tubing.
Our heavy-duty front JK bumper also includes two 1" thick recovery shackle tabs welded inside and out, and angled to provide maximum clearance and approach angle.
The JK rock crawler front bumper includes a gusseted fairlead winch mount, which is designed to accept most popular winch brands.
Why do we mount our winches on top rather than recess into the bumper?
Our bumpers are engineered to be the strongest, highest clearance, and lightest of its kind. Most of the integral strength comes from the way it's formed and the internal gusseting that is welded to the inside of the bumper, directly under the winch mount.
When the winch is recessed into the bumper and bolted directly to the bottom plate of the bumper, there is no extra support or internal gusseting to give structural integrity to the bumper. Also, those not running a winch yet, there is no unsightly hole in the middle of the bumper.
Dave's Customs JK front bumper also includes built in, recessed fog lamp mounts designed to accept your factory fog lamps. Heavy-duty mounts include threaded inserts and mounting hardware to give you a simple, no drill install.
- Overall width of the bumper is 44".
- Bumper ships bare steel and will need to be painted or powder-coated prior to final installation.
NOTE: Bumper does not require relocation of factory vacuum pump on 2012 on up JK's!
