Stubby bumper and winch

Got a Rugged Ridge stubby bumper and Quadratec 9500lb winch with Dyneema synthetic rope. Can't wait to try her out!

I've been looking at that bumper in Aluminum. How do you like it? Fit and finish? I'm just skeptical with the "made in China" thing

The finish is high quality. Textured powder coating. The fit is great. The only big surprise that I had to pull the grill up and out to get the winch plate set it in behind the frame flanges. Of course getting some of the nuts started on the bolts would help if I had much smaller hands. The winch install was very easy. I did have a fit issue. The winch motor was hitting the over rider bar of the bumper and would not allow the winch mounting holes to align with the mounting holes in the winch plate. I drilled four new holes in the winch plate exactly 1 inch to the drivers side and she mounted right up. Hope this helps anyone looking at this bumper.

Haha! Thanks man. I love them and they drive awesome. I was looking at my Jeep yesterday and started thinking 38's sure would look nice. No, I am really happy with the 37's and have no plans on going any bigger in the near future. I was pleasantly surprised that both of my girls can climb in the Jeep on their own. One of them is just tall enough to reach the door handle and can open it on her own.

I think I got somewhere around 14.7 MPG on my first tank of gas with the 37's. That was probably 80% city driving.

Hi guys and gals!

I'm super excited, I just ordered a 2014 JKU Rubicon in the only color worth buying - Granite Crystal Metallic! I'm super excited, it's my first Jeep purchase (my folks owned a Grand Cherokee when I was in high school, but that was a lifetime ago). I don't know how I'm going to hold up with the wait, but I intend to! Here's how I specced her out:

2014 JKU Rubicon in Granite Crystal Metallic
Dark Saddle Leather Interior
Uconnect 130 radio - I was going to go aftermarket with a radio but I've been reading a thread regarding RBZ radio replacement with the connectivity group and I think I'm going to go that route.
6 speed manual transmission
Air Conditioning with ATC
Dual top Group
Body-color Hard top
Body-color Fender Flares
Engine block heater
Max tow Package
the aforementioned Connectivity group

I think that covers it. Man I'm excited. Looking through the forums, this looks like a great community, and I'm glad to be here! Jeep on!

-Aero out.

Thanks fellas. Definitely makes it a lot more fun when the whole family can enjoy it. Can't wait to hit some trails here in the next couple of weeks. The girls keep asking me to take their doors off.

Looking good Squirrel ops.

Yes, it was posted in the 2014 information thread that granite was closing. I can't remember the exact date, but you could go search for it.

Dang! Sorry to hear that guys. I bet Granite will be available on the 2015's, but you probably don't want to wait that long. Maybe try to find one on a dealer lot?

Good luck!

Patrick said that granite had been a strong seller and he expected it to make a comeback in 2015, but they did close it for this year. I wonder if they'll hold it for late release again like they did this year...
