The new Shorty V3 was designed for the Jeep JK owner that is tired of their front bumper being a limiting-factor when it comes to approach angle as well as overall weight. It offers a sunken winch plate to keep your winch out of harms way along with promoting airflow to the engine bay. When it comes to form and function, the Shorty is a front-runner in both categories, it is also completely BOLT-ON, no welding required (frame cutting however is necessary). It is built from High Strength .190″ Aluminum, 3/16″ and 3/4” A36 steel and is CNC cut, formed and TIG/MIG welded to perfection in-house. The base model in aluminum comes in at an extremely light weight 26 lbs. We offer two bolt-on hoop options; the winch hoop (two bend lower profile) and a stinger (single bend taller hoop) that is fully welded and gusseted out of 1 3/4″ tubing and 3/16″ steel plate. All Shorty V3 Front Winch Bumpers include d-ring tabs at no extra charge. The bumper body is also offered in steel for those who prefer the durability.
The Shorty does require the crash bar and also a section of the front frame rails to be cut/removed.
The Shorty fits all 2007-2015 Jeep Wrangler’s. The 2012+ JK’s require relocation of the factory vacuum pump.
