Aftermarket Bumpers

I am now waiting for a train to bring my Wk2 to Utah. So I am really getting antsy to start doing some aftermarket things to my rig.

Are there any aftermarket bumpers that are available for this car yet. I got one with the Auto Cruise Control so I am sure anything out will need to be highly modified to work with it. But is there even anything out there that works on these new Jeeps?

Please chime in. I like complete replacement bumpers.

Are you looking for aftermarket off road bumpers or street? I don't think there are lots of opitions yet as it's still new.

Find a welder and some steel and pioneer my friend

I was actually thinking of how to create a set earlier. If I had steel, a welder, time, and my mom would let me touch her WK2 like that, I would build a set.

I guess if you end up with a free bumper out of it, it may be worth it but I'm not too overly impressed with their design work.

TAG Bumpers

Personally, I don't see the need for a bolting up a heavy a$$ steel bumper on the WK2 unless you're planning on doing some hardcore rock crawling.

I started going down that road with my JK and was not in the least pleased with the ride characteristics, fuel economy loss or even the loss of ride height due to the extra weight.

To each their own though. I would be interested to see what ARB comes out with since they are ONLY company in that market to make sure their bumpers meet or exceed factory crash test ratings.

ARB being an Australian based company, I have been chasing them for an time frame for a wk2 bumper (bull-bar here). But they say they have nothing in the planing stage.
Until they get enough enquiries it will not happen. Go to www.arb.com.au and make a enquiry. The more the better.

I wonder how well aftermarket front or rear for that matter will play along with ACC and park-assist.

I was wondering the same thing. Shouldn't be that hard to mount them in there if you build your own bumpers. Production bumpers built with jigs would be much easier make for custom builders than bumpers like the ones made by BERSRK which are all fully hand welded.

I was thinking Black Horse grill and rear bumper guards just to protect the paint. Light weight and would offer some help without hanging 500+ lbs of bumpers on rig, which would really play hell with the handling. Has anybody seem these?

I have been debating the arb bumper and the rro full kit. I got in pdf for the installs. The arb you literaly cut yourbumper in 3 pieces. So you trash your oem bumper. I was considering it untill I read that. Ithe rro one is a g less and I can buy a new bumper for that after I trash the one I got. For resale I mean. I think selling a overland summit with thr rro bumper winch would be easier then the arb bumper. any thoughts on which is the better buy? I trail every weekend and I am not scared to get into some ****. I dont mind pulling the acc and air dam off to instLl the preskid plate from rro for the weekends. Thanks to all and hello seeing how I am new here. I am in the mitten also if there are any trail folks out there looking to trail it up. Lol I know htere are clubs and plan on maybe getting into one but untill then..

Wk2 2012 overland summit 5.7
I will list mods

I have llokes at them both. Arb can fit a zeon 10k winch where the rro only 8k. Pulleys and such help but what if you only have one hook up and far away. I usually go out with the wife and dogs. I just am afraid of not having enough power. Also the arb protects alot of vitals on the air lift. Pluse you relocate the acc. I almost dont care about the acc though. Always find my self behind slow people and not realizing I am going 10 under also. Lol

It takes some customizing but I got a Quadratec 9000s to fit with my RRO bumper mount.
