Best-Bump? Bestop Jeep Bumpers

Posted in How To: Body Chassis on March 1, 2011

Bestop is famous for its high-quality convertible tops for Jeeps and also makes a line of truck bed covers. Now Bestop has a new line of bumpers for real trail use. The High Rock 4x4 bumpers for Jeep YJs, TJs, and JKs offer a plethora of options from winch and light mounts to rear tire carriers and tow points.

It's a fact that choosing a bumper mostly comes down to personal aesthetics, and we find that the High Rock bumpers we installed on a TJ Wrangler give it a brawny approach while protecting fenders and supporting a winch.

We ordered front and rear High Rock bumpers for our '98 TJ. Both were equipped with a recovery shackle and rollers. The bumpers are made of 3/16-inch plate and are bolt-on replacements.

Is It A Gimmick?
Is the roller cool or dumb? In the front it would have hung down lower than the bumper, but we can't deny it protects the fuel tank in the rear. We wouldn't be surprised if the exhaust took a beating now that the tank is sheltered. Even if you decide against the rollers, the Bestop High Rock 4x4 bumpers still have the thick flanges that will add some protection and can serve as recovery points.
