I ordered and installed this bumper with the tube work. I loved the look of it and the placement of the fog lights. It went on pretty easy and I was doing it solo. It was more work getting the old one off and foglights out of it. I also got the lower front skid that goes with this bumper, that was a pretty easy install as well. So far I have installed the following jcr parts: front bumper with tube work, front lower skid, classic slider steps, overhead molle panel, and the center console molle panels, oh and a sasquatch decal. Love their products so far. 10/10 would recommend.

I bought this bumper with the tube work and it is awesome. I did skip out on the powder coat and get it line-x. The amount of work they put into their stuff is awesome. I will be a long time customer.

I installed the Crusader Bumper on my wife's 2015 Jeep Wrangler JKU. The install was pretty easy. I thought the pictures looked good online, they didn't do it any justice. This bumper makes the front of my Jeep look mean, and my wife loves it. I will be doing more upgrades in the future and am looking at more parts from JCR Offroad. Thanks for a great day spending family time building our Jeep.

I have had this bumper on for at least two years. Perfect fit and function. I have the skid plate that acts like a slider when going up tall ledges. Just pull up to the ledge and touch the skid to it and give it a little gas and it slides right up it. Again another "home run" from JCR...Thanks Guys!!

Great Bumper and I love it. Really like that it doesn't look like a "cow catcher" on a locomotive. Proportions are perfect on my 2007 Rubicon JK. Had to drill new mounting holes for my Warn 9.5 CTI-S because of the extreme motor offset on that winch, but that just served to confirm the quality of the steel used by JCR.
Fred Wagner (Galveston) | September 19th, 2020
The bumper itself is well built and the install was easy to follow. I used the You Tube video and written instructions and everything fit perfectly. I did have to drill new holes for my winch mount, but that was an issue with the Quadratec Q9000 winch and not the pre-drilled holes. I cannot give five stars as I felt the powder coating was sub-par versus what I had on a Smittybilt bumper in the past that was very durable. The JCR powder coat chipped very easily and I had to touch up several areas with Rustoleum black rust primer as I did not want to leave metal exposed in the Gulf Coast environment. I feel that I will be constantly checking the coating to ensure that I keep it protected. I did touch up one area over this past weekend that had chipped. Would I buy it again? Probably not unfortunately solely due to that issue; not the build quality or design..

Had the bumper on for a couple years now, and it has held up very well. Decided on this particular bumper because of the jacking points, no other front bumper had them at the time of the purchase. The "slots" hold the jack in a position so you have no worries of it coming out to the side. makes jacking your vehicle much safer. I also like the mounting of the winch, and locations for the fog lights. Install was easy, well as much as I can remember. I also have the skid plate which has held up very well to all the abuse including when using as a "slider" to get up on to a ledge. JCR continues to build great products for protection of our jeeps. Thanks JCR!

2018 JLU. This bumper is a big improvement over the stock bumper, looks like a proper Jeep now. Very well built and easy install, did it myself without help. No instructions but just watch the video’s like another reviewer stated. I used the stock fog lights and needed a different bracket which is covered in one of the videos. I also installed the JCR skid plate which gives it a nice finished look and adds protection. Used a floor jack to hold the skid plate in place while installing the bolts. Overall, very happy with the looks and quality of my new JCR bumper. I’ll be adding some more JCR products to my Jeep in the near future!

Very solid bumper and not hard to install with standard tools. Watch the videos and you will have no problems. The LED fog lights are a vast improvement from stock fog lights. Glenchandler42
