Here's a better shot of where I trimmed the bumper.

FYI, I found if you simply notched the bumper as Mojave1 did there are no modifications/relocations required on the brackets. Fits like original. Thank you Mojave1 for the suggestion. This seems to be the simplest approach.

I was using a factory Rubicon steel bumper by the way.

Anyone completed this swap and installed the Warn Winch Mount. I believe it has a spacer bracket which moves the bumper forward about 1/4" or so. Was wonder if that was enough to not require any trimming of the bumper for the Mojave skid to be installed with out issues

This looks amazing! I will be doing this exact modification in the near future! Thanks for the motivating pictures!
Is the eBay version, or Mopar. If eBay, are you happy with fit and finish.

Does it come with a license plate mount? Sorry for all the questions.
Its no problem whatsoever, but no it does not. I put this on it yesterday. Its a license plate relocation bracket that I flipped so I can run a whip flag for the dunes .

I apologize if I missed a link but what specifically is the “eBay bumper” that’s being referenced ?

I’ve infrequently seen both JTR and JLR steel bumpers show up in the FOR SALE section but they go awfully fast and so far I’ve only placed 2nd.

Is eBay just the sale arena or an actual category of Rubicon Steel Bumper easily found ?

Thanks for the info

There are some “knock off” bumpers sold on eBay. Some think they are exactly the same as the Mopar ones (made in the same factory). They all have bumper sensor holes in them. They sell for about $430.
