I have a 2020 Rubicon with a steel bumper that I want to add a brush guard to. I have seen some that have a space for a 20" LED light bar but it looks like it is one whole new bumper. Does anyone know a place to get just the bar that will fit to my factory steel bumper?

Thanks!

Welcome!! Personally, for me, I don't like the look as much of the lights on the bar but that's me. I mounted my lights on the winch plate since it came with tabs on it for lights or you can just tack on some tabs on the bar for lights if you're able to. Then the question arises of whether to just put that money towards a whole new bumper that has a bullbar/stinger after spending what you would on all of the add ons. Up to you and what you plan to do (add a winch or other things to it). Let's see what other come up with as well :) Here is something to look into though! https://www.morris4x4center.com/warn-stinger-grille-guard-tube-for-jl-oe-rubicon-bumper.html

I have the Mopar grille guard. I like it due to it's low profile so that it does not interfere with the trail camera (much).

I put the Mopar winch guard on the factory steel bumper and then added a 10" light bar Rigid, mounted using the Mopar brackets and it works good is protected.

I went with the WARN mid bar and my own bracket for lights.

I'm partial to the Maximus-3 SLP bull bar. It's 2.5" thick vs the 2" used by most all other companies. It looks more proportionate to the Jeep. This particular bar leaves exactly 6" of space between it and the top of the steel bumper. I believe they also carry light bar mounts that use the 3 center top bumper bolts.

Did you mount light on the guard? I was wondering whether it obstructs the Camera view.

Yes and yes. My camera is now obstructed. So I will have to do something different. I think I will mount my off road lights directly to my steel bumper and I am considering removing my grill guard so I can use my camera.

Thanks.

Please let me know how the view is after relocating the lights. Are you using Mopar lights?

Yes. They are the 7" Mopar LED off road lights. They were expensive but I am very happy with the light out put. I just have to find a better location for them so I can use my front camera.

Rockhard winch guard. Works well.
