Hi Buana,
I was wondering difficult was it to install the guard? Time, effort etc?
Thanks.

Fscottkennedy If you have a stock bumber on. 2012 and add the MBRP grill guard can you still add a winch plate and winch? Thanks so much, first post...

sclui56 If you are using the Mopar/RR bar on 2012, then you do not need to do anything to the vac pump. The instructions said to use the allen key to hold the nuts when threading the bolts through the side brackets because of the narrow clearance in the bumper support, I couldn't do it, ended up using a wire hanger and wrapped the nut, dropped it in the narrow slot, and threaded the bolt through, PITA.

damndirtydog I had the Rugged Ridge light bar before I changed bumpers and liked it a lot. Installs in about 20 minutes.

Not without relocating the vaccuum pump/bracket. I tried to install one on a friend's '12 and it's a no-go without the relocation

CreepyJeeper I also did the Rugged Ridge Light bar with the 3 Rugged Ridge 100w lights. Install was quick and easy. Love the way it looks and the lights throw enough beam to cover the ditches and light up beyond the head lights. (now I just need to get the stubby bumpers)!

MuddyBruce With the bar and 3 giant round lights directly in front of the grill, would airflow to the radiator be reduced, especially in hot slow off road driving? Does anyone notice temps going up?
03-24-2012 07:11 PM
JKLIVIN I am subscribed to this thread, what's the scoop on installing a MBRP along with a Rubicon? Can it be done without modifying the sway bar disco?

Not too bad. Easier if you leave off the bottom plastic air dam piece. Good to have someone to help hold it too!

Will do.

From what I hear, the hoop is a little harder to install if you have a Rubicon with the sway bar disco motor in the way

If my jeep was any other color it would be Bed lined for sure.
