So the Barricade went on with the vacuum pump and bracket in the stock location? That would be nice. I'm relocating the pump itself to get it up and out of the way of the elements, I just don't feel like cutting/grinding the bracket off this time.

It seems the reviews on the Barricade are very good. At the price how can you go wrong. I will order it in the next few weeks (Traveling on business). Now, if only there is a winch mega thread.....Hmmmm....

The OEM fog lights were 24W each, so 48W total - these are 5x10W, so 50W total, and about a thousand times brighter. (I actually had to put diffusers on the lights, to keep them from being overwhelming to other drivers. DOT certified? Of course they are, officer. What? No, I've lost the paperwork... you'll just have to take my word for it...)
That looks awesome!

Cozmik I have skimmed this thread and some of these bumpers look awesome.

Now rather than start a new thread, I have a question pertaining to front bumpers and 2012+ JK's. Does anyone make a bumper that does NOT require cutting/grinding the brake booster pump bracket off? I have a Rough Country Hybrid stubby. Fit my '07 no problem. Fit my '13 after a lot of cutting/grinding/swearing. Went to install it on my '14 today and aborted mission when I realized I needed the grinder again. I am relocating the pump with an Or-Fab kit, but if possible I'd like to leave the factory bracket be.

Thanks guys.

Great looking bumper!

cprsac Looking at a full width bumper like the one Hansen has (Or-Fab). Does anyone know if the bottom plate covers the electric sway disconnect motor on a Rubicon?

Attachment 1239994

Just installed my new Body Armor 4x4 stubby bumper.
Love it.

bonedr Disregard above post . . decided on the AEV JK Premium front bumper instead.

bonedr Hi all . .

Just ordered the 2015 Rubicon "X" Unlimited. I'm looking for a front "bumper hoop" that I can attach to the steel Rubicon X bumper.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

OReilly's has round lights for $29 that fit perfect. If you have a welder you can make the stock hitch work.

I think Body Armor's rear bumper matches pretty well. The rear bumper's ends have similar angles as the Rampage. At least I have that set up, except that I have the stubby.
