What basics do you need when going off-road?

You need the ability to protect the front end of your Jeep. It's clear that this is a huge upgrade in Jeep protection compared to the stock bumper, and let's face it, the stock bumper is really a basic minimalist bumper. It's a thin metal frame covered in plastic that basically does the job. But this bumper from HookeRoad is 11-gauge (1/8") steel covered with a two-stage powder coat that's extremely durable and provides ample front-end protection for your Jeep. This bumper is capable of accepting a winch up to a 12,000-pound pull rating.You also have these heavy duty welded D-ring brackets that basically attach where your bumper attaches to the jeep frame rails, they are welded directly to your jeep frame rails. This will give you a firmer pull if someone else pulls you out, or if you pull the winch over the pulley and back onto your own jeep. Either way, this bumper will help you out when you need it.This bumper is a few inches shorter from end to end, and it's tapered. This will allow for better terrain and obstacle clearance on the trails. Plus, it protects your grill and radiator from any branches or other stick obstacles you might encounter on the trail.
