Jim (Minneapolis, MN) | April 29th, 2020
This was part of an larger order, front, rear, skid plate and tire carrier. There is no doubt that the craftsmen that physically built this bumper have pride in ownership. Welds are clean as they come, with a nice balance of non-perfection that hand welding provides. Finish was good, but not as durable as one sees in other manufactured baked finishes. The bumper is somewhat of a large steel torpedo in it's shipping box, so keeping it from projecting out one end or the other is likely a challenge. The JCR Offroad bumper came wrapped in plastic, then inserted in a foam injected box. In the case of this particular shipment, the bumper did indeed work through the box, leaving the points of the bumper banged up and finish chipped. But it is a heavy steel bumper, so I was OK with the overall condition when received. The front bumper with the bull bar is a great looking product on my JL. I was able to fit a Zeon 10K Platinum in there with some frame modification (as per the video). The winch exit holes lined up well, and worked. There was no accommodations for license plate, so one needs to think that through before hand, or get one for the front of the winch fairlead. A major oversight was providing a method to mount good lights on this product. From a lighting perspective, there was a lot of missed opportunity on how one can mount various lights. I ended up fabricating my own 20" bar light brackets to set a comfortable light in there without blocking additional airflow. All in all, it's a heavy duty bumper, and checks the 'quality' box as an A+. Well thought out box a 'C''. Finish a 'B+', packaging a 'C'.
