Rugged Ridge’s Spartan line of bumpers offer a variety of off-road styles to suit any taste and budget.

The new Spartan Front and Rear Bumpers are engineered to give the new Wrangler JL a rugged off-road appearance while providing high-quality construction in an affordable package.

Rugged Ridge Spartan Bumpers are assembled using high-strength steel plates featuring fold and weld construction. Then they are finished with a tough satin black powder coat to protect against hazards regardless of where the trails may lead.

The Rugged Ridge Spartan Bumpers are direct bolt-on replacements for the stock JL bumpers, engineered to provide a uniform fitment and trouble-free installation. They also utilize the original factory fog lights into the design to minimize the expense of a pricey lighting upgrade.

There are two front bumper variations available to suit a range of tastes, including models with standard ends or muscular high-clearance ends for a more aggressive look. Each bumper can be fitted with an off-road winch using the included winch mounting plate and can be accented with an optional tubular over rider. The Spartan Rear Bumper is compatible with all factory towing equipment.

Each Rugged Ridge Spartan Bumper utilizes a pair of D-ring mounting plates and includes all necessary installation hardware as well as detailed instructions for the do-it-yourself enthusiast.

The Spartan Series of bumpers from Rugged Ridge are backed by an industry-leading five-year limited warranty and are available online and through select Jeep® and off-road parts and accessories retailers nationwide.
