    The new Motor City Aftermarket Stubby Bumper for the JL is now available!

    Take a look at our new stubby bumper for the JL. It’s not flashy, it’s not going to win any beauty contests. But what it will do is add clean, well-powder coated beef to the front of your JL. Set it up with a fairlead mount and a pair of LEDS and you’re ready for the trail.

    https://mcaftermarket.com/jeep-wrangler-jl-front-stubby-bumper-m1/

    Material Specs:
    • Outer Shell .19” Thick A36
    • D-Ring 1” Thick A36
    • Bull Bar 2” X .065" Tube
    • Winch Plate .25” A36

    We haven't installed our stubby bumper yet, but we did get our rock sliders put on. The tube offer's a nice step and It supports me at 240 lbs. Very well constructed. No need to remove the body bolts just loosen them enough to slide the slotted mount between the washer and body mount.

    Do you guys plan to look into any hoops that bolt to the factory steel JL bumper? If you had a hoop that looked just like the one on your stubby bumper (same height, tube not to small in diameter, etc.) I'd be ordering right now!

    Hi Garrett, we have kicked that idea around. Don't be surprised if you see something like that come down the pipe from us. Thanks for the feedback!

    Wow! I really like that front Stubby bumper and its design. That looks like it could take a hit from a "Tank" and keep going. I already chatted online with Chris from https://mcaftermarket.com/jeep-wrangler-jl-front-stubby-bumper-m1/ and he advised it will handle a #12000- winch. I'm waiting for information about the bumper being rated for flat towing as well. If it can handle #12000 winch pulls, I'm sure towing it behind a truck or motorhome would not be an issue?

    I love the fenders on the JL they have in there bumper ad as well, wonder if that's their product or another manufacturer? Hope Motor City Aftermarket is following this thread...

    Hey Steve! It was nice chatting with you last night. Those are the factory, color match fenders with the liners removed. They look pretty darn good don't they???

    Let me know if I can answer any more questions!

    Does the bumper come with mount for lights above the fairlead?

    Hi Jeff, not typically. It's $59 shipped and powder coated.

    Shoot me a pm and I think we can work something out. Thanks for checking us out!

    I recently purchased an M1 bumper and Motor City Aftermarket did well by me on two counts:
    1. They make a quality product
    2. They responded to issues to my satisfaction

    I had some packaging/shipping problems with my bumper. Through MCA website chat and a phone conversation with Chris, my issue was resolved.

    I had much the same install experience as @EagleJL wrote up except I also had the skid plate to install. By trial-n-error I found that the skid plate goes on after the winch mount core, but before sliding on the bumper cover.

    A small thing I was impressed with: the tag on the bumper is in a similar style to the Jeep data plate - this looks very classy, especially compared to other vendors that laser cut their logo into the bumper.

    Update: back-ordered items from other vendors arrived today so I was able to put the finishing touches on my bumper install.
