The V-Bumper is lightweight and will help keep the front of the CJ light for better off-road performance. We also like that the bumper is 45 inches long and extends out over the tires a bit. This should help keep the Jeep somewhat street-legal compared to other stubby front rock bumpers. The Warn 9.5ti is a top-of-the-line winch that will give us years of dependable service. Stay tuned for the full installation of the bumper and winch in future chapters of the Scratch-Built Scrambler build.
