ShrockWorks Jeep JK Winch Bumper / Front Bumper
Smooth, clean and brutally strong, the Shrockworks "Stubby" front
bumper for the Jeep JK packs a lot of features and functionality into a compact
package that allows maximum approach angle off-road and blends in naturally
with the lines of the new JK Wrangler.
- Constructed of high strength 3/16" plate steel, laser cut, CNC formed
and meticulously welded and finished by skilled craftsman in the USA!
First, let's deal with a frequently asked question, "What about my FACTORY FOG LIGHTS?
All ShrockWorks bumpers are designed with one thing as the foremost priority: FUNCTION & PERFORMANCE! The point of a stubby bumper is to protect what needs protection and stay out of the way to maximize your approach angle and let you get up and over rocks and obstacles. The factory fog lights are almost 5" deep. Some competitor's "Stubby" bumpers put these fog's in front of the winch. So guess what? The bumper hangs out there FIVE INCHES further from the Jeep. That is A LOT and will really affect where you can and can't go in your Jeep.
The other approach some take is to put the lights under the winch and set the winch on top of the bumper which blocks a lot of airflow to the radiator. Have you ever seen a Warn PowerPlant in one of these types of bumpers? Yikes!
We think both approaches are...ahhh..."mentally challenged" and are great examples, "features," you will never find on a Shrockworks product... because they sacrifice function for form.
If you are intent on keeping the factory fogs, looks at our Mid-Width bumper. If you want fogs and driving lights with a Stubby, get the PIAA 525 dual mode fog and driving light. You can also ask to have light tabs added to the winch hoop and run whatever else you want.
- STANDARD: A removable SKID PLATE that wraps underneath is
included as a std feature! This skid plate wraps far enough under that it will
also protect the sway bar disconnect motor found on all JK Rubicon's and some
other 2007+ Jeep JK's. Since the skid is removable, it can be easily replaced
if damaged, although it's not likely to happen. The skid is formed specifically
for strength. The edges are bent up on the sides. It has welded gussets on the
back side, and it's made from the same high-tensile 3/16" steel plate as
the bumper itself. This is probably the most damage-prone area on a Jeep. Many
bumpers have a flimsy flat piece of flat plate in this area. One good hit there,
and the whole bumper is bent & toast. Others charge you extra for a skid
plate. We consider it a necessity and include it as a std. feature.
- STANDARD: Shackle / Recovery points are included as a std
feature. They are made from massive 1" thick plate steel. They are welded
front & back, and they are designed in such a way that even if the welds
were to fail, the recovery points themselves are still held in the bumper (see
CAD pic on right)
- STANDARD: There is nothing else needed to mount a winch.
Just bolt it on and go! Accommodates most winches up to 9500 lbs, including
hard to fit winches like the new Warn Power Plant HP winch.
- Built-in light tabs for aftermarket driving or fog lights.
- Optional winch opening cover for a clean look w/o a winch. This plate will
also accommodate an additional set of off-road lights on top of the bumper.
A license plate will cover the fairlead opening.
- Three versions are available: no top tubing, a low profile winch height hoop
and one with a grill hoop.
- Finish options are: bare steel, semi-gloss black powder coat, and a semi-matt
finish textured black powder coat. The text-black has a rough texture. It looks
similar to the non-Sahara fender flares.
Most of the pics here are of a bumper that was done in a custom Anthracite
Metallic it is also listed below.
Winch compatibility: All of the winches listed on our www site will fit. MOST
winches b/t 8000 & 9500 will fit. Known exceptions: Warn 8275, Superwinch
EP & EPi, any worm gear style winch (these are typically industrial winches
such as the ramsey RE 12000 and look very different from normal winches). The Tmax short drum comp winch and the Warn 9.0RC will require re-drilling some holes. The Ramsey short drum comp winch will bolt up w/o any mods.
