New Rugged Ridge Jeep JK XHD Aluminum Front Winch Bumper
 
Front bumpers in stock and shipping, rear bumper pods and center step shipping in late November available for pre-order.



Rugged Ridge Jeep JK XHD Front Aluminum Bumpers

Designed to be a whole new look while being extremely light weight. Save on fuel and the environment. The Bumper is all Aluminum but uses the current steel XHD D-rings. Each bumper comes with a built in top filler plate. Each new XHD has cutouts and mounting points for the factory fog lights and a great looking “Jeep® Style” front slat look that will make this bumper stand out.

The XHD Aluminum bumper is approximately 80lbs+ lighter than the average steel off road bumper. Government studies show a fuel economy benefit of 2% for every 100lbs of weight savings (http://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/driveHabits.shtml).

Just How Light is the Aluminum XHD Bumper?
  • Aluminum XHD - Standard Configuration 26.9lbs (bumper base, filler plate & d-rings). The optional hoop over-rider, stubby ends & winch plate make the maximum overall weight of the bumper 62.6lbs.
  • OE Bumper 35.7lbs
  • Brand X Off Road Bumper 110lbs & Up

This system is modular just like the XHD steel bumper system. Right now there are 8 available configurations which will most lightly grow like the steel version.
  • XHD Aluminum Front Bumper - Non-Winch - Bumper base, filler plate & d-rings.
  • XHD Aluminum Front Bumper - Non-Winch - Bumper base, filler plate, d-rings & stubby ends.

Rugged Ridge Jeep JK XHD Rear Aluminum Bumper Pods

Taking the light weight theme further, we have developed steel inner framed Aluminum Rear Bumper Pods. These new lightweight Pods still allow for over sized tires but take a huge chunk of weight out of the bumper. (The picture shows the rear pods installed with the enclosed steel D rings for the XHD Rear Tire Carrier). Each Pod can be used with XHD tire carrier part #11546.20 to hang those 35”+ tires, shown in picture with the optional center step. The XHD Aluminum bumper pods are approximately 40lbs+ lighter than the average steel off road bumper. Government studies show a fuel economy benefit of 2% for every 100lbs of weight savings (http://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/driveHabits.shtml).

Just How Light is the Aluminum XHD Rear Bumper?
  • Rear Bumper Weight*Aluminum XHD - Standard Configuration 43.45lbs (Pods, Brackets & D-Rings. The optional Step adds an additional 6lbs)
  • OE Plastic Bumper Cover 16.5lbs
  • Brand X Off Road Bumper 85lbs & Up

There are 8 configurations so it depends. Check the link and PM me if you are interested. I can work on the pricing if you see them for less. When I listed these I priced them below anything I could find on Google.

I'm ready for a front bumper but not the wrench yet! Whats it look like without the wrench? Does the plate give it a finished looked?

SCfan1 11-02-2011 09:25 PM

I like the ones you have in the photos above. That's what I'm interested in.

I don't have a picture of the non winch version, they only just came out. The bumper is designed as both a winch and non winch bumper. The filler plate in the non winch version covers the hole for the winch to give it a finished look.

How long are you planning on running w/out a winch? If it were me I'd order the one with the winch plate to save a few $ and live with it like that for a while. It won't look "finished" as such but won't look that horrible and saves you money in the long run.

The picture of the front bumper has all the options, XHD Aluminum Front Bumper - Bumper base, winch plate, d-rings, stubby ends & over-rider hoop.

$884.85 plus $45.99 shipping. If you can find that same combo for less I'll match it but it's a pretty aggressive price.


I can get you one shipped tomorrow.


Are you looking at the rear also?

sneck 11-03-2011 10:00 AM

i like the look of that rear, do you happen to have a copy of the install instructions? i bent a couple peices on the factory bumper mounts, so I need to see if I have to replace anything. Also, wouldnt mind a quote for the rear with step and tire carrier

daggo66 11-03-2011 11:02 AM

How much for the rear, including the center step?

EAD Offroad 11-03-2011 04:07 PM

I can't seem to find the install instructions for the pods but did find the center step instructions. http://www.omix-ada.com/instructions/11547.10.pdf. I've emailed my rep for them, it takes RR a while sometimes to get the instructions on-line.

The rear pods and step are not available to ship until late November.


I'll send you both a PM with some pricing.

EAD Offroad 11-03-2011 04:12 PM

Before I forget. Don't forget about the Omix/RR/Alloy Holiday Payday rebates going on right now. http://www.eadoffroad.com/image/data...day-payday.pdf

You have to jump through a couple of hoops, mail in UPC off the boxes and wait a few weeks. On a $500+ bumper you can get $50 mailed back to you from the manufacturer which will for the most part cover the shipping cost.

Do these fit the 2012 rubi?

The winch special is over but we can still give great forum prices on these lightweight XHD bumper systems.
