The JL Crawler Front Bumper is a grille-width and combines tough off-road performance with cutting edge styling in a full featured premium bumper. Fabricated entirely of high strength 3/16 inch plate steel, special proprietary tooling gives these bumpers their signature large-radius-bend features.
The ends of the bumper extend far enough to protect the lower corner of the JL grille, but not far enough to hinder tire clearance or tire access to vertical obstacles. This product is finished in black with Poison Spyder's proprietary SpyderShell Armor Coat process.
Plate Steel Crawler series bumpers are fabricated from 3/16 inch plate steel, CNC laser-cut and precision brake-formed into a low profile, high clearance design. The ends of the bumper extend far enough to protect the lower corner of the JK grille, but not far enough to hinder tire clearance or tire access to vertical obstacles.
The Crawler's top-mounted, integrated winch mount is part of the fully boxed, internally gusseted bumper shell. This bumper is designed to accept most Warn and other brand winches that use the popular 10 inch x 4.5 inch mounting pattern, with a few small exceptions. Mounting Warn Zeon series winches require our Zeon Winch Spacer Plates.
The Brawler Bar is modeled after the bar found on the RockBrawler front bumper. It is a low-profile stinger designed to provide protection to the winch, grille and radiator area. The Brawler Bar is made of CNC laser-notched, NC-bent 1-3/4 inch diameter .120 inch wall DOM tubing.
The complex laser-cut notch allows the Brawler Bar to be welded to multiple planes on the surface of the bumper, providing incredible strength. The Brawler Bar is supported by a pair of beefy gussets, CNC laser cut from 1/4 inch thick plate steel. The Crawler Front Bumper is installed without cutting or altering the Jeep's frame rails. The faceted design provides the best ground clearance and approach angle possible in a bumper that doesn't require frame modifications.
The factory Crash Bar requires minor trimming, but may be left otherwise intact or removed for a sleek appearance and high clearance. If keeping the crash bar, Poison Spyder recommends adding the JL Crawler Front Skid (sold separately), which conceals the crash bar and protects the electronic sway bar disconnect. The skid is sold as a separate piece for those who would prefer to cut away the crash bar and run without the skid, in favor of increased clearance on the trail.
The Crawler Front Bumper comes with built-in, recessed fog lamp mounts that are designed to easily accept your stock fog lamps. And these aren't just simple light tabs placed behind a hole in the bumper - they are recessed in a bucket made of a full tubular section to encircle the lamp and keep light from annoyingly leaking behind and around the bumper. Adding further convenience are mounting holes for re-installing the harness retainer clips for the factory wiring, to keep the wiring neatly secured.
Important: The stock fog lamps used on the Jeep Wrangler 10th Anniversary Rubicon do Not fit into the fog lamp buckets on this bumper.
These Extreme Duty Recovery Shackle Tabs are CNC machined from 1 inch thick steel billet, and pass through the shell of the bumper and are welded on both sides. These tabs are specifically designed to accept Poison Spyder's Heavy Duty 3/4 inch Recovery Shackles. These tabs are designed to match the high clearance aspects of the rest of the bumper and minimized hang-ups.
