As a result, these bumpers are stylishly chiseled as well as being extremely strong and functional. These bumpers allow impressive ground clearance and can accommodate up to 37 inch tires.
Great bumper and looks good. no issues getting holes lined up. The instructions and photos need to be updated. It would've ben nice to have a wiring extenstion for the fog lights. A list of the tools needed would also be a great help. wasted a lot trying to find the correct tools.
Installed on a 2010 Sport S Unlimited. Dropped my front almost 2" over stock bumper You'll need to be assembly inclined as the proper order for some of the directions are not clear. The added weight over stock front bumpers will require a front spring upgrade (lift not required). Fog lights are moved out six inches from stock placement; you'll need to splice and add wiring as no harness extension is provided. One bolt on the Air guide wouldn't line up with the bottom of the bumper (absolutely a quality control issue), but it's still functional.
Bumper went on fine, fitment was good, instructions were ok and could have been better with clearer photos. Bumper is very heavy-duty and looks great
Good looking winch when installed, mine was shipped with metric bolts, instructions were for SAE bolts. Had to go to hardware store and buy grade eight bolts 5" long for the lower mount on each side. Had to modify for good fit on 2014 JK Unlimited.
The winch plate comes with 4 studs attached and two larger bolts you bolt to the frame outside to the inside. On the passenger side the large bolt fit with no problem, the driver side however I had to enlarge the hole with a reamer. Locate the Vacuum pump on a 2012 where that mounts to the frame the hole in front of that needs to be enlarged. Do this before you install the winch plate. If you have problems locating this hole just allign the winch plate and you will see it.
I've had two JK's and a few different bumpers. The Atlas bumper is a very nice bumper with easy installation, it took me the better part of a Saturday, but I did it by myself. Great finish and good hardware. There is some confusion regarding the vacuum pump relocation. On my 2013 Rubicon I did not need to relocate the pump. The base plate for the winch is notched in the pump area. Also you'll be asked to cut part of the frame rail. The direction were a bit vague and some of the pictures are not really helpful. The portion of frame they ask you to cut is the bottom corner of the horizontal frame across the front. You are only trimming the corners to allow the skid plate to sit flush against the horizontal front member of the the frame. The skid plate will still bolt on even if you do not trim the bit that hangs below the front member. The kit comes with a "bumperette" and although it doesn't say anything in my opinion this option is if you are using steel cable on your winch with rollers. The bumperette will give you added protect the rollers. I have rope so i left the bumperette off. If I didn't my rope would rub on the edges of the bumperette. Also the clevis mounts are very low which is the only thing i don't like about the bumper.
I have a 2016 Rubicon. I'm putting in a 2" lift and 35" tires. Will there be an interference issue with this bumper?
