The XHD Short Base comes in two designs;Integrated Winch Mount for use with almost any aftermarket winch (including the new Warn Power Plant with optional mounting blocks #11540.15) and Light Mount Base with two light mounting locations. The Short Base attaches quickly to the frame with two enclosed D-Ring mounting brackets. This four bolt frame mount design provides the toughest bumper attachment found anywhere while creating two overbuilt pull points. This bumper mounts close in on the frame rails, drawing the bumper closer to the body and increasing the approach angle. The narrow overall width gives enormous clearance for the front tires. Each Short Base includes two protected cut outs for your JK's factory fog lamps. Built in euro-guards protect the fog lamps from the elements while creating an easy mount point. Each Short Base includes side filler plates to close off the ends for a finished look.

I was very happy with this bumper. The install was very easy, the extra accessories are available and it has a very nice coating on it. I am kind of disappointed that the skid plate is so much and I don't think I will be buying the matching rear bumper as the price is crazy because you have to buy the bumper and tire holder. I really like the expand-ability of this bumper. Depending on what I am o

 

Would buy this product again for sure!

Love this bumper for my Jeep. Works well with all brands of winches and has held up in many hard pulls. The finish on it is great, and holds up awesome in northern Minnesota's weather. I also like the idea that you can add parts and take them off as you please with no issues at all. The only issue that I have with this bumper is that I wish it had a place to my plate on it, other than that I love

I just wanted everyone to know that this bumper will fit a 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon. Most places sell a bracket allowing you to relocate the transmission cooling pump. It is no big deal. So if you have a 2012 wrangler buy this bumper if you like it because it will fit. I have the front and back bumper and it works great for rock crawling.

 

Love it

The modular design of this bumper is a great option if you live in a state with annual safety inspections. I can attach the ends for inspection then remove them. The protection for the stock fog lamps is great. It looks great. Mounted an XRC8 winch with this for installation which was a breeze.

  • Q:

    "Product states it will not fit the 2012 model JK because of a Transmission cooler pump. This applies to only Automatic Transmissions, correct?"
