The AEV 2018 Jeep Wrangler/Gladiator RX Front Bumper raises the bar for front end protection with a host of innovating design features and manufacturing processes that truly set it apart from the rest – even the factory steel winch bumper. Designed, tested, and manufactured in the USA, the AEV RX Front Bumper provides an unrivaled level of functionality, style, and protection for your Jeep.
The AEV 2018 Jeep Wrangler/Gladiator RX Front Bumper has all the same core features as our EX Front Bumper, but it includes short corners instead of the full-width corners for a more aggressive look and maximum tire clearance. This is a great option for anyone running aftermarket fender flares with tires over 40” tall. Additionally, the AEV RX Front Bumper itself sits both higher and tighter to the body and with a better approach angle than the factory winch bumper. If you are looking for a bumper without limitations, this is it!
The AEV 2018 Jeep Wrangler/Gladiator RX Front Bumper is manufactured out of Hot Stamped Boron Steel (HSBS) and features an OE-quality, multi-stage E-coat/powder coat finish for maximum corrosion and UV resistance. Hot Stamped Boron Steel is an ultra-high strength, press hardened steel that is commonly used in automotive applications for passenger impact protection because it is lightweight with an extremely high yield strength. The complete RX Front Bumper weighs approximately 90 pounds, yet it is stronger than a bumper weighing twice as much.
What good is a winch bumper if it is difficult to use? The factory winch bumper allows mounting a winch to your vehicle, but the clutch handle can be difficult to access and the winch line visibility when spooling your winch is very poor. The carefully thought-out profile of the RX Front Bumper solves both of these issues, offering plenty of accessibility to the clutch and a better view of your winch line during recovery operations – even with hoop mounted lights!
Lighting is a critical component to traveling safely through remote backcountry, so the RX Front Bumper allows for the installation of AEV 7000 Series LED Off-Road Lights underneath the center hoop with the use of the optional Off-Road Light Brackets (sold separately). This allows easy access to the winch and its components. All various OEM fog light options are compatible with the RX Front Bumper and install seamlessly with the supplied brackets and bezel.
If you are looking to maximize light output to illuminate the ground in front of you and help cut through fog, snow, or heavy dust and silt, you can add a 20” light bar behind our optional Front Bumper Skid Plate (sold separately) using the optional Front Bumper Skid Plate Light Mount (sold separately).
Additionally, a Trail Cam Relocation Kit is available to relocate the camera to underneath the center hoop for an unobstructed view of the trail head.
The AEV 2018 Wrangler/Gladiator RX Front Bumper is up for any recovery task that may present itself, with two Hi-Lift Jack guides and a pair of heavy duty, chassis-mounted recovery points that are tested to meet all OE load specifications and are appropriately sized for ¾” anchor shackles. A 10,000lb Warn Zeon 10-S winch (or other similarly sized winches) can be added to the RX Front Bumper with the use of our optional Winch Mount. An Optional Non-Winch Cover Plate is available for customers who don’t plan on installing a winch and wish to cover up the winch opening.
AEV is committed to US manufacturing to bring you the best quality, materials, and craftmanship. The RX Front Bumper is proudly designed, tested, and manufactured right here in the USA and carries a lifetime structural warranty and a 1-year warranty against corrosion – both applicable to the original purchaser and from the original date of purchase.
