"Like all Smittybilt Jeep parts, the Smittybilt XRC Bumper line was engineered to provide maximum clearance for rock crawling. Each bumper has high degree approach angles and raised corners to maximize ground clearance, with 3/16" cold rolled steel bars robotically welded to the exact specifications. A two stage textured matte black powder coat is then applied for the ultimate look. The front stinger is manufactured from 1.75" tubing and has 2 light tabs that could accommodate up to two 9" lights. Its unique design is capable of mounting up to 10,000 lb winch with the option of running an aluminum or roller fairlead. Each bumper was developed to be a complete bolt on and requires no modifications to your vehicle."
Installation was super easy, I had the bumper on in about 15 min after getting the factory one off. The bumper looks great too. I put KC 6" fog lights on it which bolted right up with no problems. I did have to follow the instructions and drill out one of the factory bumper mount holes to get it to line up correctly. I would definatly have no problem ordering this again.
I purchased this bumper 2 years ago for my 2007 JKU and the 9K Smittybilt winch. This bumper is awesome and takes a beating. 2 years later and it still looks almost brand new. I love this bumper so much that when I traded my 2007 JKU in for a 2014 JKU I took that bumper off my 07 and installed it on my 2014. I also customized my by installing 2 1/2" amber LED lights in the 5 holes and wired the to the fog light switch..
Love the look and function of the bumper. Only took a small modification to the frame to get bumper to sit flush.
Installed on 2010 Rubicon. I had some trouble lining the bolts up until my wife pointed out that the bottom of the crash bar was preventing the bumper from lining up. I trimmed the extra metal and the bumper went on perfectly. It's the best looking JK bumper for the price!
The bumper looks great and is very solid. It is a huge improvement over the stock bumper which provides no protection at all. Instructions were poor, badly written, and very incomplete. On my jeep there was about 1/2 of extra material on the frame. This prevented the new bumper from sitting flush on the mounting plates. After I cut all the material away the new bumper slid right in place. However, the bottom flange did not overlap the frame nearly enough to get the last four bolts into the frame. It is short about an inch I would say. Other issues I noticed is the welds were not filed down and is rather rough. In spite of this I feel it was worth the upgrade.
i am trying to get an outside dimension for the d ring attachments. I called Smittybuilt but they said they dont have any of those bumbers (XRC Front Bumper) anymore because they are discontinued. I have a custom tow bar that was made to fit my XRC stringer bumper and i need to know if it will fit this bumper 27.5 " from outside edge to outside edge.

Can you attach a tow bar to pull the jeep behind a rv? Jeep 2010 wrangler sport. I have this bumper wtench combo on it.
Asked by Geno from Oregon on
Hi Geno, Most tow bars require a flat surface front to properly mount them, however this grill guard bumper from Smittybilt does not have room for tow bar mounts. Thanks for the inquiry!
