ARIES (2156002): TrailCrusher® Front Bumper for Jeep Wrangler JL and Gladiator

The TrailCrusher® front bumper from ARIES is designed, tested, and built to work hard on the trail and give your Jeep Wrangler JL or Gladiator the functional advantage you need when it comes to winches and shackles. It’s also no accident that its tough look has been completely customized for your trail-ready rig, with angular lines that sit high and tight against the front of your Jeep to ensure plenty of ground clearance.

The 2156002 TrailCrusher® front bumper features a one-piece design with 3/16” thick steel plate, with a winch-and-shackle rating of 12.5K pounds (straight-line pull). Predrilled slotted holes create a universal and secure winch-mounting platform, whild additional predrilled holes accept a hawse or roller fairlead (winches and fairleads not included). An optional stinger brush guard can be installed to both help protect the winch and add an extra-aggressive profile.

ARIES TrailCrusher® front bumpers go on with no drilling and comes with a durable carbide powdercoat atop a durable e-coat to protect from hazards seen and unseen. Rear bumper also available (#2157002). Includes bumper and all necessary hardware.
