Rugged Ridge XHD w/ Bushwacker Flatties

Try to narrow down my choices for a new front bumper and I'm contemplating the RR XHD w/ the angled end caps.

Is anyone w/ bushwacker flat flares running this setup? If so, I would love a pic from the front.

I'm not 100% sure I want the angled end caps but a pic will help me decide. If it's not what I want, I'm also considering going w/ the XHD w/ the prerunner guard.

I don't have many recent pics but here you go minus the end caps. I can't see paying the amount of money they want for them to purchase them myself. I can try and get differnt pic if you want, but it's raining right now.

Thanks. Good lookin' rig.

I've been running w/ the stubby mod on my factory front and I've gotten used to the width. The ends are about 1" longer than the inside of the tires. I've just gotten used to that look so I'm trying to stay the same, which is why i'd have to get the end caps.

I personally don't like the "full" stubbies as they just seem to narrow to me. Not hatin' on your setup, looks sweet. Just not what I prefer.

Every bumper I look at either seems to wide or too narrow. I feel like frikkin' Goldie Locks over here.

I have the XHD with stubby end caps and Bushwackers but not the angled end caps. I think the stubby end caps give a finished look to the XHD in stubby form

Well, while we're on the subject, I guess I should have also included another question.....

How do you guys like the bumper in terms of design, quality, durability, etc?

I'm looking at the lockable end caps as extra storage is always a great idea.

Here is mine with stubby end caps

Yeah. Too me that's just too wide. Maybe if I keep staring at it I'll get past it.

^ Looks like it's ready to take off and fly away.


OP, sorry, I didn't know you were looking for the full sized end caps. I mis read and thought you ment the smaller ones.

Not a prob. I was using the builder tool on Quadratec and the pic angle didn't show how wide the bumper was w/ the full end caps.

Appreciate the pictures from all. I still like the bumper, just need to get my head around the width.
