The JL Bruizer front bumper for JL is a grille-width, high clearance bumper with recessed winch mounting. This bumper is fabricated from 3/16 inch plate steel, CNC laser-cut and precision brake-formed into a low profile, high clearance design for optimum off-road performance. The ends of the bumper extend far enough to protect the lower corner of the JL grille, but not far enough to hinder tire clearance or tire access to vertical obstacles. This product is finished in black with Poison Spyder's proprietary SpyderShell Armor Coat process.
Bruizer series bumpers are fabricated from 3/16 inch plate steel, CNC laser-cut and precision brake-formed into a low profile, high clearance design. The ends of the bumper extend far enough to protect the lower corner of the JL grille, but not far enough to hinder tire clearance or tire access to vertical obstacles.
A Winch may be installed into a heavy-duty winch mount cradle that is separate from the structure of the Bruizer bumper shell. This provides maximum mounting strength for the winch, while also locating it as low as possible within the bumper shell.
The recessed winch provides unimpeded airflow through the Jeep's radiator at highway speeds, and keeps the weight of the winch as low as possible to achieve a Low Center Of Gravity. Your winch fairlead mounts directly to the integrated fairlead mount on the front of the bumper, eliminating the need to purchase a separate fairlead mount.
The Bruizer bumper is compatible with most Warn, Smittybilt, and other brand winches that use the popular 10 inch x 4.5 inch mounting pattern, including Warn Zeon series winches up to model 10S. (Poison Spyder Zeon Winch Spacers are not necessary with this bumper).
The Brawler Bar is modeled after the bar found on the RockBrawler front bumper. It is a low-profile stinger designed to provide protection to the winch, grille and radiator area. The Brawler Bar is made of CNC laser-notched, NC-bent 1-3/4 inch diameter .120 inch wall DOM tubing. The complex laser-cut notch allows the Brawler Bar to be welded to two different planes on the surface of the bumper, providing incredible strength. CNC laser notched DOM tube gussets strengthen the Brawler Bar.
The Bruizer Front Bumper is installed without cutting or altering the Jeep's frame rails. The faceted design of the Brawler Lite provides the best ground clearance and approach angle possible in a bumper that doesn't require frame modifications. The factory Crash Bar requires minor trimming, but may be left otherwise intact or removed for a sleek appearance and high clearance.
If keeping the crash bar, Poison Spyder recommends adding the JL Bruizer Front Skid (sold separately), which conceals the crash bar and protects the electronic sway bar disconnect. The skid is sold as a separate piece for those who would prefer to cut away the crash bar and run without the skid, in favor of increased clearance on the trail.
The Bruizer Front Bumper includes provisions for mounting a pair of LED pod lights for use as fog lamps or auxiliary off-road lights. These light mounts are recessed, fully protecting the LED light fixtures from rocks and trail hazards.
Mounts are compatible with most 2x2 LED cube lights. Important: Note that the LED Lamps do Not come with this bumper, they must be purchased separately.
These Extreme Duty Recovery Shackle Tabs are CNC machined from 1 inch thick steel billet, and pass through the shell of the bumper and are welded on both sides. These tabs are specifically designed to accept Poison Spyder's Heavy Duty 3/4 inch Recovery Shackles. These tabs are designed to match the high clearance aspects of the rest of the bumper and minimized hang-ups.
