Heavy Duty Construction. Barricade Off-Road manufactures their Extreme HD Front Bumpers to precise specifications from 3/16″ thick mild steel plating for superior strength and rigidity.

The D-Ring mounts are welded both inside and outside for extra strength.

Fog Light Technical Note. If you have a Jeep Wrangler JL with OEM LED Fog Lights, they will not fit properly with this bumper. This Bumper is only compatible with OEM Halogen Fog Lights.

Very well build, gives a good look to the front end and a solid mount for a winch. I marked it a 4 for fit, here is why. Its advertised as having a 12,000lb winch capacity. However, I had to grind the opening to get it to fit a 10,000lb Smitty Built winch. That is my only complaint, it mounted up just fine and is very solid.

This Bumper is great for the $$. Watch those Halogen fog lamps on the 2018 JLU sport S though. They wont really fit. But for the price, treat yourself to the LED fogs.

Bumper looks great. Very solid construction. Easy installation on my new Wrangler JLU. It adds some weight to front end of car. I have a winch on mine and that puts about an extra 150lbs on front of car. Looks like suspension upgrade is in my future.

First off, this bumper WILL NOT fit a 12,500lb winch without modification. At the very least I can attest to the fact that the rugged ridge winches (and similar designs) are too wide. The motor sticks out on the passenger side, and doesn’t allow the mounting holes to line up. That said, the problem was fixed with an angle grinder with a cutoff wheel.
The other problem I encountered was a mounting bolt that was a different different thread pitch than the rest of the bolts, which was also welded on at an odd angle. A trip to Home Depot, and a little convincing with a 5lb sledge corrected both of those issues.
Overall, the bumper looks good, but quality control is lacking. If you’ve got the skills to install the bumper, you’ll probably be able to tackle these other issues if they happen to you.

The barricade front bumper was very easy to install and provides an aggressive look. Comes with winch mounting plate which fits most winches up to 12,000 ibs. The only negative about the bumper is there wasn’t connectors for the fog wiring harness. However, a couple of zip ties later and u would never know the harness is being held in place by ties.
