Rugged Ridge took the radical off-road look of our popular JL Arcus bumper and made it available for all devoted 2007-2018 Wrangler JK guys & gals. This patented design utilizes a high-strength 11-gauge steel shell surrounding a ¼-inch thick steel winch plate, capable of holding most model winches up to a 12.5k lb. rating. We made sure the Arcus is no lightweight when it comes all those cool options you find on pricier bumpers either, only the Arcus Stubby Bumper Set makes them standard equipment. Take our massive 1-inch thick recovery hooks that literally scream HARDCORE…each hook is dual cross-drilled so they accept both 7/8 and ¾-inch D-rings giving you a recovery option for any situation. Clever recesses in the bumper offer direct frame access for effective lifting of the Jeep with a hi-lift jack. Built-in fog light pockets accent the overall appearance and accept factory fog light assemblies. The Arcus Stubby Front Bumper features a high-quality satin black powder coat finish with a fine texture, because nobody said brawny can't be beautiful. Patent Pending.
