This design has been adapted especially for the new JK Wrangler. The back side of the tube has been laser cut to "inset" the tube towards the vehicle. All other tube designs for the JK sit farther out creating an unsightly awkward look. Each Tube bumper includes two fog lamp cut-outs as well as a welded filler plate for a great look. As with all Rugged Ridge Tube Bumpers, all the welds have been ground smooth and feature welded end caps. Non winch mount versions include dual light tabs. Textured black finish complements the finish on the JK flares.
The tube bumper was a perfect fit. Everything was going great till I started installing the fog lights. The mounting bolts for the fog lights were too small and they snapped off. What I did was finish snapping off the remaining bolts and drilled them out. Then I installed my fog lights with self tapping screws. Other than the fog light mounting bolts, I am very happy with the tube bumper. It has changed the looks of my Jeep! I would recommend this bumper to my Jeep friends. .
I recently purchased the tube bumper with fog light cutouts. I was very impressed with the construction of the product. The fitment was great and made my Jeep look totally different. My only complaint was the fog light mounting screws. The screws were painted and I could not get a bolt started on them. After I got a screw started, I had to use a wrench to tighten them down. The screws were very small and several of them snapped off. I will have to drill them out and install bigger screws if I am going to use my fog lights. Overall, I am happy with the tube bumper and would recommend it to anybody.
Would it be possible to add a wench to this bumper at a later time?

Josh- Thanks for the question. You can add a winch plate to your Jeep Wrangler JK which will allow you to run a winch with the Rugged Ridge Front 3 Inch Tube Bumper
