When I was shopping
for a new front
bumper I wanted one that functioned as well as it looks...after awhile
I discovered Jeeperman bumpers.....A bumper with all the extras in the
base price.....winch plate, roller fairlead mount, d-ring mounts, and
light tabs for mounting lights...not to mention how well built it is.
Step one to removing stock bumper:
Remove the 4 bolts at the top of the bumper where the tow hooks mount. After that remove the 2 bolts on the underside of the bumper and pull stocker bumper off.....
Step two installing Jeeperman bumper:
Because of the weight and size of this bumper it might help to have milk crates or even some buckets to set the bumper on to help with ease of installation....I didn't have either and got by without any probs....insert bumper in place of stocker and bolt back up....this bumper requires no modification to install....perfect fit....I even have a steering box skid and it fit perfect with that....I was very pleased to discover that fact.
After the bumper is on, bolt all the bolts back up and take a step back to look at your new Jeeperman bumper.
Showing winch plate...also notice I switched the tow hooks around so that they could still be used with this bumper
I don't have a winch yet so I decided to modify the little plastic swaybar cover to work with this bumper....I cut away any parts that would keep the cover from laying flat
Here's how it looks with the cover:
Here's a before and after pic:
