The stubby bar front bumper is an excellent front bumper upgrade option that is made of heavy duty steel and aluminum construction ensuring maximum durability. If you are looking for a winch platform that maintains maximum clearance for larger diameter tires (35" or more), this is the perfect product. Unlike most brush guards and bumpers, the ARB front stubby bumper incorporates a fully engineered mounting system which completely replaces the factory bumper. It fits the JK's grille panel and eliminates issues of interference when mounting large diameter tires. The ARB front stubby winch bumper has exceptional features aimed at making travel in the remote area safe while offering a high degree of vehicle integration, protection and functionality.
The JK stubby bar is very compact and has a full SRS compatibility. Its black powder-coated finish gives it a refined look while preventing corrosion. Both wing sections feature reinforced cut-outs providing suitable hi-lift jacking points to prevent distortion or damage. Central on each outer wing section is 20mm, .787 inches thick, 350-grade steel. The integrated recovery points pass through the front face of the stubby bar, attaching to the chassis mount for structural integrity. Another distinctive feature of the stubby front bar bumper is the license plate kit that offers a stress-free mounting solution for customers residing in states that require a front license plate and want a winch installed in their ARB front bumper. Two front license plates that are specially designed for a roller or a hawse style fairlead are provided to ensure a quick installation that requires no modifications to the ARB front bumper or fairlead.
Having been manufactured for maximum strength and reliability, the ARB front stubby bar is a complete off-road bumper that gives value for your money. The stubby bumper allows the mounting of low mount style winches as well as narrow mount winches, thanks to its solid mounting platform that is designed for mid-framed low mount winch models.
