Rugged Ridge Front XHD Bumper Base with Winch Mount for Select Jeep Wrangler JK Models
Well we bought this Rugged Ridge bumper for the Jeep Wrangler JK long before it was really popular and there were only a few years under the belt of the Jeep JK. Since then it has been installed on it for about five to six years or so. I cannot remember how long to be sure it could be even longer.
But to date it is probably the longest lasting accessory we have bought and the toughest. It was super easy to install once you get the stock bumper off, and you can probably sell the front bumper to cover half the cost of the new bumper (that’s what we did).
THIS JUST IN WE REVIEW THE STUBBY ENDS FOR THIS BUMPER.
It has cut outs for the bottom fog lights, with two metal guards to prevent rocks or large objects from damaging them and so far our lights are fine. Two huge front D-Rings that still dont squeak and are beefy.
A winch mounting plate and the ability to add modular accessories like bumper ends, bull bar, other mounting bars, and some other cool features that can give your bumper a unique look.
So you can get a brand new bumper for about $400.00 and keep adding to it when the budget allows ending up with a beefy bumper for the most hardcore JK enthusiast.So here is a video we did of the bumper after about 6 years of use. You will see that it has weathered and lasted through the years very well.
Disclaimer: We purchased this bumper at the full price from a local off-road parts retailer.
You can purchase your own XHD bumper for your Jeep Wrangler JK on Amazon for around $450.00 shipped.

We give this item a 4 out of 5 lug nut rating. This product is awesome and it holds up. After many years the coating on the bumper still looks good and believe me I do not wash the Jeep much. The ability to add even more items and upgrade it makes it even better.
There is an install curve here and it will take some time to install it, but if you take your time the novice can do it. There are more heavy duty bumpers like the ARB ones but for the price and upgrade-ability you cant really beat this bumper.
