Mid-Width Aluminum Front Bumper for 07-10 Jeep Wrangler JK Under Cover Fab

The UCF Mid-Width Aluminum Front Bumper for Jeep JK is a great option for those that want more protection than most other companies offer. This bumper is 60 inch wide and weighs less than 50 lbs. including the tow points and winch tray.

We were able to keep the weight to a minimum with intelligent material selections. The winch mounting system is made from fully supported (reinforced with welded flanges and bends) 3/16 inch carbon steel plate. The d-ring mounts are 3/4 inch thick and welded to 3/8 inch mounting plates.

The bumper body is made from 3/16 inch 6061-T6 aluminum hard plate. We used large radius tooling to make all the bends on the bumper body for added strength and style. Any manufacturer using 6061-T6 aluminum must use large radius tooling to avoid material fracture during the bending process. We have seen several companies that make this claim, yet they bend their parts with sharp tooling. This simply isn't possible.

The bumper extends and is fastened to the lower cross-member to provide protection for the factory electric sway-bar disconnect on the Rubicon model. The bumper is held onto the frame with 16 bolts. Our bumper holds the winch very close to the grill. It's only about 1/2 inch forward of the grill itself. Every effort was made to ensure that approach angles were as great as possible.

The grill air openings are unobstructed by the winch. The winch is mounted off-center so that larger winches like the Warn 9.5TI will fit.
