Spartacus Stamped Steel Bumpers

Rugged Ridge, a leading manufacturer of high-quality Jeep parts and accessories, today announced the availability of its new Spartacus Stamped Steel Front and Rear Bumpers for 2007-2016 Jeep Wrangler (JK).

Designed with the European consumer in mind, the soft contours of the Spartacus Stamped Steel Bumpers produce some of the most advanced styling in the industry. The stamping process also creates a high strength 11-gauge steel bumper that’s lighter than most aftermarket bumpers. Both front and rear bumpers utilize an adaptable design that can be easily changed between wide or narrow configurations, providing Jeep owners with two different appearances to accommodate larger wheels and tires as well as improved approach and departure angles.

Rugged Ridge Spartacus Stamped Steel Bumpers also feature specially designed injection-molded crush-can covers to complement the bumper’s styling while simultaneously helping to retain Jeep’s factory crash rating. Each Rugged Ridge bumper comes powder coated with a durable textured black finish to withstand years of on and off-road use.

“Our newest bumper features an aggressive off-road look that Jeep enthusiasts will love,” said Alain Eboli, Engineering Manager at Omix-ADA. “We took extra steps to strengthen the bumper – like stamping knuckles into its bottom edge – but were still able to retain a lightweight design that works with all popular winch models.”

The Spartacus Bumper is also available with an optional black overrider hoop for a more aggressive look and extra protection. Jeep owners can also mount a winch to this new stamped steel bumper by using a specially designed Winch Plate from Rugged Ridge.

Rugged Ridge Spartacus Stamped Steel Front and Rear Bumpers are backed by Rugged Ridge’s 5-year limited warranty and will be available in fall 2015 with retail pricing starting at $699.99 (front) and $749.99 (rear).

Top Ten Ways to Spend Your Tax Refund

It’s that time of year. The time when hard working tax payers saunter out to their mail boxes, and find a tax bill rebate check waiting for them. If you’re lucky, and you happen to find it before your significant other, you can start plotting and planning on sinking the money into your rig. Here is the Top Ten items that made our Tax Refund Wish List:

10.)  Winch Recovery Gear Kit

If you don’t already own one, then buy it today. Only a tool goes off road without decent first aid and recovery gear kits.

9.)  Cold Air Intake / Performance Filter

Invest in parts that will earn an extra return. Cold Air Intakes and Performance Filters increase horsepower and fuel economy, and put money back where it belongs: in your wallet.

8.)  GPS

A nice GPS with both Road and Topo maps will cost around $150-400. With it you can record your favorite trails, find the next peak and keep from getting lost.

7.)  Off Road Seats

Nothing is worse than a day on the trail in a worn out seat… it is like every rock is personally kicking you in the seat of your pants. Replace your worn and weathered seats with a set custom made for off-road use for a difference you can feel.

6.)  Off Road Lights

Don’t let night fall on your adventure. Create your own daylight long after the sun has gone down. From ultra bright HIDs to traditional halogen lights, there is a light kit to fit your budget.

5.)  Dual Battery Tray

Don’t let your battery die during your next recovery operation. A dual battery tray gives you extra piece of mind, and two batteries to power all your accessories.

4.)  Heavy Duty Winch

You can pick up a heavy duty 8500 LB winch for less than $350 bucks, or you can fork over the same amount to Hillbilly & Son’s Wrecker Service the next time you get stuck.

3.)  XHD Modular Bumper

It’s the only bumper system that allows you to pick and choose from a series of interchangeable components to build the bumper of your choice.

2.)  Lift Kit

Let’s face it: Its not a Jeep until its lifted.

1.)  Take a Jeep Trip.

It may not be cost effective to drive your Jeep across the county, but for just a few hundred dollars you can rent a Jeep in places like Moab, Telluride, Hawaii or Costa Rica.
