Q David Stuart • 07/07/2020, 3:55:05 PM I'm told that you do not have a skid plate compatible with the Dagger Stubby Front Bumper JL/JT/JK. I installed the Dagger Stubby on a JK, which looks like it can still accommodate a skid plate to replace the plastic cover that used to be there. And the pictures here https://www.jcroffroad.com/product/JSFD.html show a skid plate. Is there really no skid plate that will work with the Dagger Stubby Front Bumper on a JK?
A 07/10/2020, 11:10:29 AM We currently don't offer a JK skid plate for this bumper, no.
Q Walt • 09/05/2020, 10:35:38 AM How accessible are the holes for the winch once the bumper is installed? Can a winch be installed or removed by accessing the holes/nuts in the bottom of the bumper without having to remove the bumper?
A 09/09/2020, 1:49:58 PM Yes, the winch can be installed or removed with the bumper installed.
Q Karol • 01/05/2021, 11:04:28 AM Can this bumper be installed while retaining the factory JK 10th Anniversary Rubicon skid plate without modification?
A 01/07/2021, 1:01:36 PM It's not compatible with the 10A skid plate.
Q John Zolman • 01/07/2021, 8:48:53 PM Can you tell us how far the stinger tube sits ahead of the front of the bumper itself? I ask because I will be parking this in my garage and want to make sure I have enough space. Thanks
A 01/25/2021, 12:14:23 PM Around 7" in front of the bumper face.
Q Jim Gray • 02/22/2021, 10:40:19 AM How much does the bumper weigh?

Q Christine • 03/01/2021, 7:42:56 PM Does this fit the 2021 Willys (not sport) fog lights?
A 03/08/2021, 12:17:01 PM We haven't had a Willys in the shop yet, but if it's a plastic bumper you should be good. Worst case you have to purchase a pair of (68298651AA) from Jeep for your light to fit.
Q edward capiak • 04/28/2021, 7:25:20 PM Will this bumper work on my 21 Gladiator Mohave as it seems to have different skid plate?
A 05/05/2021, 2:11:36 PM Should fit fine. The Mojave skid is not attached to the factory bumper.
Q matt alfermann • 05/11/2021, 8:44:10 PM I have a 2021 Gladiator Mojave, will this bumper work and cover up the shock reservoirs that are located under the factory skid plate. Also is this bumper rated to allow flat towing behind an RV.
A 05/12/2021, 1:41:43 PM This bumper will work with your factory skid plate yes. We don't officially rate these bumper for flat towing, but we have plenty of customers that do it using d-ring adapters for their tow bars.
Q matt alfermann • 05/12/2021, 8:34:08 PM A few more questions, If I wanted to remove the factory skid plate, would your Lower skid plate work also. Is there any cutting of the frame work to install the bumper, some of the manufactures state his in their videos and I did not want to do this. Can you get the bumper powder coated in other colors besides black, I have a stingray gray Gladiator.
A 05/21/2021, 11:22:51 AM We have not tested our skid with the Mojave coil over reservoirs, but we recommend keeping that skid. There is no cutting, although you may need to drill the front bumper mounting holes larger depending on your vehicle, we only offer black.
Q Chad B. • 06/06/2021, 3:11:06 PM Can the prerunner hoop for the Dagger bumper be purchased separately?

Angela Bozman (MD) | August 11th, 2021
Installed this last year on my 2017 wrangler and have had alot of compliments. Install isn't hard with 2 people. Takes a bit of time but it isn't too bad. Nice and sturdy bumper and it sure stands out from everyone elses bumpers. I loved it so much I bought the back one to match!
Clint Hutchison (ID) | February 21st, 2020
I installed this on my 2012 JK Rubicon, awesome fit, easy install, the powder coat was damaged in shipping 😒 but their customer service made it more than right! I'm a very pleased customer! 👍👍
Mike (PA) | February 5th, 2020
As the other reviewer wrote, had to oversize a couple holes to get the bumper to slip on. I also put 1/4" nuts on the fog light studs before putting the fog lights in to set them back a bit. They were riding snug on the bottom of the bumper and I figured that would lead to them cracking if left that way. I might weld the push bar on at some point. Otherwise the bumper was exactly what I was looking for. (JT Rubicon)
ryan (PA) | January 24th, 2020
I needed to wallow out holes on my frame horns of my JT to make this bumper fit. the studs that were welded on the bumper were roughly 8th in off. would not be a big deal if the customer service would respond to my emails. As well i was quite irritated to find out the winch ready bumper does not ship with a fair lead mount. Also would have been fine, if somewhere on the bumper page it stated that.
