Rock Hard 4x4 is very proud to offer the heaviest duty and highest quality "expedition style" front bumper for the Jeep CJ, YJ, TJ, and LJ.
PRODUCTION UPDATE: Light tabs are now OPTIONAL on straight up hoop. If welded light tabs are included, larger bodied winches like the Warn Zeon and PowerPlant will no longer fit.
OPTIONAL WARN 8274 WINCH MOUNT: We now offer an additional winch mount for the Warn 8274.
Our 46" wide "expedition" narrow width bumper is part of our wide / extreme duty armor upgrade line. It looks as good as it performs and when you see one installed on a stranger's Jeep you want to walk over and touch it. Clean lines, exact fitment, and included features make it the undisputed leader in narrow width width offerings.
Not all bumpers can tackle all trails. Sometimes it takes a full width, tire covering, fender protecting, 3/16" thick plate steel bumper to survive your toughest adventures. This is that bumper. It's the big kid on the block with a look that's all it's own. Winch ready and installs in minutes - our full width is a healthy does of bolt on armor that will cure what ails ya'.
Bumper weight: 74 lbs.
It's one thing to be Made in USA. It's another to be given the time, quality, and craftsmanship only RH4x4 offers. Each front bumper is laser cut from 3/16" thick steel to live up to it's lifetime guarantee and give you precise fitment. It's then bent and formed into it's shape, hand welded, and ground down for a look no other manufacturer (overseas or domestic) can offer. Each bumper is then powder coated in house, by hand, individually - so every nook and cranny is protected. We sleep soundly at night knowing RH4x4 customers can play off road, winch recover, tow, and do-all with our armor installed, then rinse and repeat.
Our bumper is more than a plate of steel, it's a fully loaded road armor upgrade bolted to the front of your Jeep. With standard included upgrades like a winch guard tube, double welded recovery shackle tabs, pre-drilled winch mounting holes, and straight to the frame horn mounting - our bumpers scream Premium. Each bumper also includes a laser cut winch winch fairlead mount. Maybe that's why they are such head turners. When you see a RH4x4 front bumper on the trail - you just get it.
This bumper uniquely positions your winch on TOP of your frame rails, not lowered. This makes all winches compatible with our bumper with zero trimming required.
Ease of Installation
It's been known to take longer to uninstall your OEM front bumper than it takes to install our front bumper. This is achieved through our unique "DTF" or Direct-to-Frame mounting method. This gives us not only a precise mounting location to your frame horns it also makes for the most secure way to mount your bumper. Plus, unlike overseas produced bumpers with a "one size misfits all" approach, we don't cut any corners when it comes to one of the most important upgrades you can add to your Jeep.
RH4x4 Front Bumpers are very recognizable for two major reasons: owners bragging about how strong it is and it's innovative features that come standard. What makes up a RH4x4 bumper is what makes them so strong.
Pre drilled laser cut winch mounting plate with fairlead mount.
Double welded recovery tabs. We go a step further than competitors by not only welding the front of our recovery tabs to your bumper skin, but then also spin the bumper around and weld the backside as well. Strength and confidence only found in a RH4x4 bumper. Our heavy duty Recovery Shackles can be found here.
Winch guard protects expensive recovery tools from damage and trail debris.
