Each Jeep Gladiator Front Bumper is designed to fit a specific vehicle and offers superior protection against the elements. If you have a Jeep Gladiator, there are several different types of front bumpers to choose from. Some popular styles include full-width, stubby, and mid-width bumpers. Stubby bumpers are narrower than full or mid-width models and offer better approach angles and tire clearance when off-roading.
The DBJL-02 is a trail-tested design refined with new features and improvements over the years. It even has a stubby center section that will fit up to a 12,000-pound winch and a welded stinger for extra protection while hauling cargo. It also has a patented recessed fog light hole that can accommodate factory fog lights or a couple of DV8’s own LED fog lights. Basically, this is the perfect stubby bumper for a Jeep Wrangler JK or Gladiator.
I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a high quality stubby bumper that will keep you on the trails and look good doing it! Some of the most impressive features include a large stubby center section that will accommodate up to a 12,000 pound winch, a recessed fog light hole and a blingtastic LED light bar cut out that is compatible with our BS20E100W5W (P/N BS20E100W5W) which is a good thing because you can have a lot of fun wheeling at night! Unfortunately, the DBJL-02 is not without its flaws. It is a bit difficult to install due to the fact that it does not sit flat on the frame and the nuts do not line up right. Plus, the blingtastic LED light bar is not very visible because it is located behind the stinger and not in view when you’re on the trail.
The bumper has a number of other features like redesigned solid D-ring mounts, an integrated recovery point and a winch plate that’s lowered for better airflow to your radiator. It also comes with a 1.75 over-rider bar that can be swiveled to increase ground clearance and allow you to mount a winch. Another feature is the fact that this bumper has a spot for your factory fog lights. This is something that I like, because it allows me to use my stock fog lights and keep the bumper as close to the factory look as possible.
This bumper is also designed with replaceable PP+TPO slip strips to protect your Jeep from rock chips and other debris. These are designed to be thicker than most of the other slip strips on the market, so they’re sure to last. The bumper also has an over-rider bar that matches your factory fender lines, which means it will cover many of your Jeep’s fenders and suspension area. The bumper has redesigned solid D-ring mounts that are welded on the inside and outside, and it also features an integrated recovery point for easy access.
It is also winch-ready with incorporated D-ring mounts and can support up to 12,000 lbs. It features integrated fog and turn lights that are designed to illuminate the road when necessary, as well as a tubular guard that protects the grille and provides more tire clearance for minimizing tire rub.
No matter your style, the Matrix series will give your Jeep a more aggressive look without sacrificing safety. Each bumper has a spot to mount a 30″ single-row light bar and two cube lights on each side, so you can customize your look to suit your personality and style.
This bumper also has a tubular guard that provides additional protection for the grille and helps reduce tire rub, which is especially important when you are running bigger tires. It also includes 90mm fog and 60mm turn indicators, so you can easily show off your rig when needed. It is backed by a manufacturer warranty and is designed to hold up against the most demanding off-road conditions.
Designed with the off-roader in mind, this bumper is ideal for both on and off road use. It has a built-in winch plate that can support 12,000 lbs of winch, an incorporated grille guard hoop, and two high-strength D-ring mounts with 9,500 lb. rated D-rings used for both a winch and fog lights.
This bumper is built with 3/16 inch cold rolled steel and has a durable two-stage textured black powder coat that takes on the toughest conditions. It also has a stinger bar directly welded to the bumper and is equipped with two tabs for additional light attachments.
If you are a dedicated off-roader, this bumper will be perfect for your Jeep Gladiator. This bumper has a great stance that will allow you to get up to speed quickly when off-roading, and it has been specifically designed to be strong enough to hold a winch while protecting your vehicle.
