Product Information

Average Price: $328.66
Manufacturer: Smittybilt
Recommended?
Yes: 8 / No: 0

Solid bumper! Looks great too. Winch plate was included but oddly enough it was not readily compatible for the winch of the same name(XRC 8). Installation of the winch required positioning the control box in a way other than that suggested by the manufacturer.

Price: $500.00
Pros: Looks great and offers a lot of articulation
Cons: Install. Fronts are easier then the rear's but these are not simple bolt on.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Take 4 days for the front/rear and body cadding. Also, buy a rivet nut tool first. Napa sells them for $80 and then another $12 for the specific insert. This will save a day of install.

Comments: I installed this bumper on my 2005 Rubicon along with an XRC-8 winch kit. It was very easy to install. I think it took about 45 minutes to remove the old bumper, mount the winch on the new bumper, install the new bumper with the winch, extend the wires for my factory fog lights and connect the winch to the battery. The XRC line of products is as high quality as some of the other name brands, but at a much more affordable price. I also added some 3/4" d-rings in black and a license plate bracket that clips onto the roller fairlead.

Pros: I actually bought a Smittybilt SRC Front Bumper, I liked it better for the YJ.
Cons: None
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I actually bought a Smittybilt SRC Front Bumper, I liked it better for the YJ. Easy to install. I had to cut a few small sections out to get the bumper to slide over the existing tube mounts. See my build thread for pics.

NOTES: The SRC Front Bumper does not have any good points to use a high jack lift on when your flat/in the garage.....not that I can see or find. If anyone has a good point let me know asap!
