Our new flares served to highlight the hideousness of the stock front road-clearing device. The bumper—we’re talking about the bumper. Rather than using part of our budget for a new aftermarket unit, we took a blade to the stocker. It gives the JK a better approach angle at the tire, and although this look may not be for everyone, we like it. A touch of flat-black paint on the ends and we were done. Rough Country sells aesthetically pleasing bumper ends and winch mounts for this nearly free modification.
