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 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 the whole system.
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 off to have fun in, I can add different accessories.
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.
