When you want to go rock crawling with your Jeep, you know you have to replace your stock front bumper. It was made to satisfy highway regulations and it's fine for cruising the boulevard, but off-road it's only going to get in the way, not provide much protection, and won't mount most off-road accessories. For maximum rock crawling ground clearance, maximum protection, and maximum accessory mounting capability you can't do better than the Smittybilt XRC Front Bumper.
The XRC is designed with raised corners and high-degree approach angles for greater tire travel and enhanced entry and exit points. With the XRC you'll never have to worry about getting hung up. But even though the XRC is smaller than your stock bumper, it's much tougher. Constructed from thick 3/16" cold rolled steel, all joints are robotically welded to the exact design specifications.
Besides its ruggedness and rock crawling creds, the XRC has a built-in winch plate that can accommodate up to a 15,000 lb. winch, with the option of running an aluminum or roller fairlead. It includes solid D-ring mounts and built-in jacking points. And for the best appearance and long-term durability, all welds are ground down and smoothed, the bumper is acid dipped to remove impurities, a special "E-Coat" is applied inside and out, and finally a dual stage textured black powder coat finish is applied.
Designed to be an easy bolt-on installation, the XRC comes with all necessary mounting hardware and detailed instructions. For additional protection a 1.75" diameter 0.120" wall thickness bull bar is available (sold separately). It includes 2 light tabs that can accommodate up to a 9" light. The XRC Front Bumper is covered by a 5-year limited warranty against finish defects and a Smittybilt Advantage limited lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.
SmittyBilt®, located in Compton, California, is the leader in the off-road parts and accessories market because they were there at its inception. Founder Basil Smith, also known as "Smitty", was one of the original Southern California 4WD enthusiasts. He started a business called Rock-ett Products, making specialized equipment for trucks and Jeeps, in his garage/machine shop in 1956. Smitty's son Tom began working at Rock-ett at an early age and became head of the ever-expanding enterprise when it became Smittybilt in the 1970s. Under Tom's leadership, the company created innovative products like the original "Nerf Bar" side step, and tubular front and rear bumpers for Jeeps. Today, thanks to their continued involvement in off-roading at all levels of the staff, which enables them to keep abreast of the latest trends and needs in the off-road market, Smittybilt remains the industry leader with a selection of over 2000 different products for trucks and SUVs.
