Rugged Ridge XHD Front Bumper

Hey All - Just wanted to share a few pics. Got my first 'real' Mod on Blue today, we took off the stock bumper and put on a XHD with Stainless D-rings and stainless hoop. My locking storage ends are on the way, they were on back order. I just wanted to give some props to Wrangler JK Accessories - Wrangler JK Parts - AllJeepStuff.com, I ordered on Wednesday and the gear was on my doorstep Friday when I got off work. They have some great prices too, cheaper than anywhere else and I got free shipping. Here is the proof....





It was an easy install, the toughest part was getting the stock stuff off. The plastic fasteners suck! Thank goodness for the heated garage, as you can see the weather in southern indiana was cold and nasty today.

Now I have to start shopping for a winch!!! Any suggestions/recommendations would be appreciated...

very nice touch.. i was going to chop my oem bumper and put end caps to make it a stubby bumper. But I like how yours looks, you can add a winch too. very nice !
i hate how the stock bumper catches all the road crap from the tires..

Is that your neighbor's yellow wrangler behind yours, or do you have two in the family?!

I know what ya mean! I bought and installed the end caps on my XHD, then took them back off for the winter. Don't need the extra weight with them filling up with ice and snow and crap. They might just stay off!
