Rugged Ridge XHD Bumpers

Okay so I have been looking around to replace my factory bumpers with after market for about a month now. I like the idea and looks (on paper) of the XHD bumpers. Just wanted to know if anyone has them on already and could post some pictures. Also really want to see the back one too.

As far as the quality of them that is something I could use help on too. I like Rugged Ridge but don't know much about there bumpers. Anything would be great

It's a good bumper. It's sustained an F150 backing into it, and recently a tree I recommend it highly. It's a little heavy, but it gets the job done well.

Mine is already cut and drilled from the factory for a winch too.

If you'd like any more pics just hollar. I'll snap some more. I'm outside working on my Jeep right now

Some closer shots of the rear bumper would be great!

Thanks!

without tire carrier



The front end-caps will get bumped off and fly to kingdom-come if you wheel with 35s, by the way. A friend of mine found that out the hard way. Ballistic, they were. Boing.

i havent hit them. my close spot is the rear where i cut the seam off. it missed by about 1/2 inch. i tried though getting stuff to hit driving all over my ramps and turning the wheels around. i got over 3" though of actual lift.

i've been thinking about adding the bumper's stinger, and if i do that i'll ditch those end caps. stingers don't look right IMHO without a stubby. i'm thinking of cutting the caps of the stock rear too

I got mine off 4wd.com. I don't know if it was cheaper or not. I always order their crap because I have 2 4wd hardware shops near me, and they ship to the store free

Same here. The free store shipping gets me every time.

Nice....

There's a store in my area that sells 4x4 equipment and they have RR listed on their website.
I should give them a call and see if they can have the bumpers shipped to them, if they can give them to me for a good price that is!

Makes me feel good too that I'm supporting the local guys too you know. I like them. They're pretty knowledgeable and hook me up with tshirts and stickers and sh*t. I went to the Cleveland store today and got 4 free shirts,2 free hotdogs,free chips, free soda, and a superchip shipped free. Cost me 1/4 tank of gas to get there though but the weather was bangin' today so I loved the hour drive to Cleveland with no top.

4WheelParts will be the least expensive all the time; go to a local store and just ask them.
They aren't gloss; just wet sometimes.
