A 11/23/2020, 10:29:08 AM It does not. Please contact us for shipping to Canada:
Q Mikey • 11/30/2020, 11:11:28 AM Will this fit with 3/16" frame stiffeners installed, or will brackets need to be modified before welding?
A 11/30/2020, 4:18:13 PM The kit comes with stiffeners, so if you already have them installed, you would just skip that part of the install.
Q Matt • 12/28/2020, 11:16:09 PM Does it come with mounting hardware
A 12/30/2020, 4:42:59 PM It does not, you would need to source your own, or order the full UNF kit with the steering box spacer (
Q Warren, S • 02/17/2021, 9:36:03 PM Does this DIY front bumper come 1/4” thick?
A 03/01/2021, 2:33:46 PM It is 3/16
Q Pat McBride • 03/15/2021, 5:57:26 PM I would like to use the DYI front bumper on a 1991 Comanche. Does this fit without any cutting on the fenders?
A 03/16/2021, 3:15:09 PM You will have to cut the fenders.
Q Rowan CP • 03/17/2021, 5:32:39 PM I have frame stiffers on my xj so the mounts need go be about half an inch out from stock on each side, is there something yall will do to adapt to that or do I just weld the brackets where I need them? Thanks in advance!
A 03/22/2021, 6:12:20 PM Our mounts are designed for fit over .188" thick UNF brackets. That is likely the same as your stiffeners. We'd tack weld the mounts per the instructions and test fit it on your Jeep. The mounts can be moved out if needed.
Q Matt Hackmann • 04/06/2021, 6:51:35 PM I have a Warn VR EVO 8-S Winch And it doesn't fit between the inside the front of the bumper and the back plate that is 90°. The only way it is going to fit is if I cut the back plate off. What is the purpose of the back plate is it structural or is it just there the looks?
A 04/12/2021, 2:38:55 PM The back plate strengthens the winch plate, you may be able to bend it down instead of up for more room.
Q Austin • 04/11/2021, 8:22:21 PM What are the dimensions of the winch unit cutout?
A 04/12/2021, 3:20:52 PM The winch plate itself is 33.5" x 7". There is a bent flange on the face of the bumper that protrudes 1" back into the winch area. The bumper face is 5" tall.
Q Nick • 04/14/2021, 2:27:37 AM Will the bull bar mount fit this ?
A 04/21/2021, 3:38:02 PM We have many weld-on options, search "DIY Jeep Bumper Hoop" in the search box.
Q Wyatt McManus • 12/09/2021, 11:05:45 PM Does it come with d ring holders as well as d rings
A 12/14/2021, 5:35:57 PM It does not include the d-rings themselves, but it does include the tabs.
Q Elijah Jewell • 03/17/2022, 8:28:47 AM Will this fit a Badlands Apex 12,000lbs winch? I've seen other questions referencing some winches not fitting without modification
A 04/06/2022, 12:43:58 PM Yes it will fit.
Q Drew • 03/26/2022, 3:59:09 PM How will i know what hardware to get with this kit?

DIY Winch Bumper
(San Luis Valley, Co.) | May 23rd, 2021
Was pretty easy to build and looks really good. Everyone that has seen it has a favorable comment. Would recommend to anyone interested.
DIY front winch bumper
(Canada bc) | November 22nd, 2020
Super easy to put together was a good welding project. Bumper seems pretty strong. Only thing I would beef up are the front mounting plates with the 3 bolt holes. That area needs to be thicker it will bend if your ruff on it. I added a 2” receiver on the bottom that ties in to the original front cross member which holds it in three different points.
Diy xj winch bumper
(California) | June 2nd, 2020
Everything came on time. It seems very easy to get together. Only thing I wish was included were written directions on what to do or what sequence to do them in. I did find a video on YouTube that will help. And no hardware comes with this kit. I am a beginner at all this and have a mechanic for a spouse to help me figure things out.
(GA) | May 6th, 2020
I'm absolutely love this bumper. Fits well and looks great.
Great bumper with a bit of lacking
(Spokane WA) | March 6th, 2020
Bumper came in with no issues or damages. Everything was cut and easy to match up. Only complaints are: there was no hardware in the kit, didn’t come with instructions (had to find them on the website), and the plate the winch sits on should be a little thicker. It bends a little more than i would like when I’ve got a load on the winch, so i had To weld is some more metal to fix that. Other than that it’s awesome for the price!

This bumper is awesome. the instructions were very easy to follow and it fits nice and snug against the body of the jeep. It also looks tuff and feels super strong. my only complaint is that it should come with the steering box spacer, even if the price goes up. ofcourse the stock one broke when I undid the bolts. it would have saved me the time waiting for the new one to arrive considering I live in Canada. I still give this 5 out of 5 for quality and craftsmanship, definetly recommend this if you have the skills to weld. thanks JCR!!

Very easy to assemble is one of the big advantages of this product. Fit and looks good on the jeep. Will fit a warn 9.5ti winch easily and not rub the front grille. When it's time to weld it, it's very easy to make the edges smooth for a good finish. The instruction are very well explained. I only had one question that I called them about and they help me resolve the problem I had. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a diy xj bumper.

Well, what can I say. Total BADASS! The parts are very well machined. The instructions very clear and the setup and welding straightforward. I added a couple tie-in angle brackets to the front along will a custom "bull bar". Let me tell ya, the BEST investment I made so far! This should always be your first upgrade. I installed a Harbor Freight "Badlands" 12K winch. I have been stuck several times and this bumper has always bailed me out along with some of my other wheeling buddies. Just buy it! You will not be disappointed.
Imported Review

This bumper is easy to build, looks great and seems to be very strong. The only concern I had with the bumper is the instructions stated the d rings should have had 3/8" sticking inside the bumper after taping them in from inside but when I stuck them in they fell all the way through. They did get some extra welding because of this. I hope they hold. I'm rating this a four only because of this. If you can weld don't be afraid to buy this.
