What did i get myself into. A new guy here with a question.
Last week we bought our first jeep. Wasn't even looking, just driving home from dinner and saw this jeep on a lot and the next day went in and ended up bring her home.
This is what i know, its a 2010 Jeep Rubicon 2d. Has a little lift from rough country with 315 or 35 tires on it. When i bought it, i noticed that it had the death wobble in the steering wheel. I got that fixed, and while i was under there, i ended up installing 4 new Rancho 9000 shocks. Replaced the ball joints and had the front end realigned. With all that done, it drives pretty good. Hopefully you guys don't bash on me too bad for what i have already done. Now on to my front bumper. The lights aren't working and i have pulled them and can't get them to power up with 12v. I have power at the plug, so i am thinking the lights aren't working. I can't find the lights to replace them. So i took a picture of the front bumper. Everything on the jeep is Rough Country, but i don't think that the front bumper is Rough Country.
Here is a picture of it. I am hoping that some of you guys can recognize it and let me know what it is.
Thanks for your time.
Everyone has their own style and that's what makes Jeep building so fun. You build it the way YOU like it and to hell with what others think.
Congrats on the new Jeep and have a blast building it the way you like it.

That bumper has a better approach than my Garvin (or could be the camera angle)!
The LEDs may be toasted - if they do not have diodes already build in and were wired without diodes - field collapse takes it toll. sPOD includes diodes in the source just for that reason.
Follow the link above - it IS the barricade Trail Force - on the product page a chat dialog will pop up where you can ask about testing/replacement and probably even get them to send you their install data...

The wagon should, of course, be as light as possible, but strength should not be sacrificed to lightness, for on any but the regularly traveled roads, the wagon will get many a hard knock...
Once you fill it with a winch it will look better. Im more about practicality than looks. If it gets you from point A and point B and its not a parking lot then thats all that matters. Enjoy your new rig!
I think that bumper looks just fine. There are some god awful looking bumpers out there but yours is definitely not one of them. I donít particularly like the finish but then a lot of people probably donít care for my flat black painted one either. Maybe a bit silly but the eyebrows look kind of cool to me. Nice color (Jeep) too.
