Extreme Terrains Bumpers?

Does anyone have any experience with these? I'm just wondering if it's a good buy. It'll be my first addition to my 04 tj. Specifically the Barricade Trail Force HD bumper. Thanks a lot!

I've been looking into getting that bumper to within the next month. Would love to see any feedback.

I have the Barricade Front and rear bumpers on my TJ and have no complaints. I've used my Jeep to recover myself and a couple of JKU's with the winch.

The front bumper did take a little effort to get on, there's one lower tab that had to be wallowed out a little but other than that I am extremely happy.

I have the Trail Force HD, great bumper for the price. Install required slight reaming of the bottom hole passenger side to line up. I have received numerous compliments on the bumper. I feel it was a great purchase.

Contact XTRyan on this site, he will take care of you.

I have the front one waiting to be put on, now I'm just waiting for the rear to get in stock so I can order it.

X2. Good value did the trick for me. Ditto on the hole lining up, just took some time to make larger. Don't use he supplied bolts, go to somewhere like Ace Hardware and get a set of Grade 8 bolts instead. If you running fogs you can easily run wires within the bar.

PapaBean, I was considering running the wires through the bar to clean things up, but, I was wondering about weakening the bar. Is there a hole at the end of the bar or did you have to drill that? How was the access for the drill if you had to do that?

Also, where did you find the accessories for your d-rings?

Nice looking rig.

Nice looking rig.

The shackle accessories look like the Daystar Isolators.

Extreme Terrain carries the lower part in Black, but I think you can get a Kit that has those and the washers for on the pin from Daystar.

PS: Ive had no problems with my barricade bumpers, only mounting issue I ran in to was with one of the lower bolt tabs, it got bent up a lil so I stuck a pry bar in an straightened it out.

As the prior poster said, Daystar Isolators. I found on the bumper there was more play in the D Ring moving around than i liked even after the Daystars, so i went to Ace Hardware and added some 1/16" thick 2" diameter rubber washers.

As for the bar, there is actually a hole on each side of the center inside portion of the bumper (facing grille) where the tube was welded on. Just widen that as you need to. I did have to drill two (2) holes on the underside of the tube on the outside at the top of the bar so I could route the wiring thru to my lights. All in all not too bad. Easier than widening the passenger side mount hold of the bumper itself thats for sure!

I can post pics when I have some daylight, happy to help.

Here is where i drilled a hole under the bumper's fog light tab. Also inserted a grommet to help guard the wires:

Hardermods what is the wiring coming out of your gate to the tire mount? Is there a way to run a brake light to this set up? Your recommendation?

I picked up a 2" LED light at Autozone and cut out the center of one of my center caps and put the light in there. I drilled a hole through the mounting plate for the tire carrier. Wrapped the wiring in some wire loom and ran it down along the carrier. I used zipties to hold it to the carrier.



Works pretty good.
