When you need the toughest, most durable bumper system out there, look to the Smittybilt Rock Crawler Series! These heavy-duty bumpers are designed for off road use and abuse! Durable powder coat painted 2 inch tubes and 1/4 inch steel plate protects your front end from large rocks. Each bumper has been designed with sloping ends for greater tire travel and enhanced entry and exit.
Looks great and great price! Sticks out further then I thought. Save your top bumper cover and cut it to fill gap between bumper and grill. Need to extend the fog light harness to reach new location. One of the corners arrived dinged (missing some paint/powder coat). No reply from 4wd.com about the damage. Instructions said to redrill but didn't need to on my 2014 jku rubicon. Did I mention it is heavy? It is! I have a leveling kit and it dropped the front 1/2 inch which will help rear brake wear vs front. No need to relocate the vac pump. Inside mounting bolts can be reached from underneath with a box wrench. Did it solo and had no problems.
Bought the SRC Carbine Mid Front Bumper on a Tuesday and had it delivered, free shipping, on Thursday (thank you 4wd.com). When delivered the box was slightly opened at the corner, which exposed the end corner of the bumper with minor scuffing, but nothing a touch up of bedlinen can't fix. This was most likely due to UPS shipping and the weight of the bumper. Once opened, I was hesitant about the powder coat, but it is by far much superior to Barricade brand (friend has a similar mid front bumper by Barricade, which he had to have re-powder coated due to rusting within 2 months). I do have Smittybilt side rails also, 2 years, which are holding up perfectly from northeast winters. The bumper itself was easy install, hardest part was take OEM bumper off and accessing the bolts. Defiantly worth the purchase, especially for the price!
I went off-roading this past month and hit a tree pretty solid after sliding down a muddy hill. This bumper took the brutal impact and saved my jeep. If I was still running the stock bumper, my whole passenger side front end would have been wrecked. This a very durable bumper and I would highly recommend you replace your flimsy front stock bumper with this one.
Is this bumper adequate to attach a tow bar to pull the Jeep behind a truck? What other parts do I need to tow the Jeep? Tow Bar, lights, adaptors?
Asked by Suzy from Wickenburg Arizona on
Suzy, Yes, the SRC Carbine Front Bumper is more than adequate for towing. May I suggest the JK Wrangler Towing PAK Part Number: 4WDJKTOWPK, it has everything that you will need in one complete package

Asked by mike from mars on
Mike, the SRC Carbine Front Bumper is so durable that you would be able to drive through a brick wall, however I'm not sure how your steering set up and tires would like that, so we don't recommend it. Thanks for the question!
