As the Jeep Gladiator comes with a fairly standard front bumper (with the only premium choice being the winch-ready option for the Rubicon), it’s no secret that many enthusiasts will be looking to upgrade soon after they drive off the dealership lot. If you want to give your JT a new off-road-focused bumper that will add capability and rugged style, check out CJ’s selection today. If you're not quite sure where to start, check out our Gladiator bumper guide.
You can also find all of the towing and recovery accessories for your bumper that you could ever want to add to your bumper. Products like hitch receivers, D-rings, hitch covers, and bumper lighting can help pull together your build and give your Jeep Gladiator the customized experience you want. The best thing about any Jeep product is how it lends itself to customization, and we’re excited to see the Gladiator builds that people are able to put together. It may actually make sense to choose the smaller bits first, as the choice of trailer hitch may impact your rear bumper selection. For serious off-roaders, a winch kit is considered all but essential and will make a great addition to your front bumper.
There are a wide range of different bumper styles that you can select based on what will work best for your Gladiator. Stubby bumpers are some of the best bumpers available for rock crawling both because of the strength of their design as well as their incredible approach angles. Rock crawling bumpers are great for traversing rough terrain. Whether you really do hardcore rock crawls or just drive on some rocky roads and tall hills, you’ll want something that’s designed with serious clearance. Bumpers and accessories from Rigid Industries, Road Armor, and Smittybilt will give your Gladiator extra utility and a killer look.
One of the simpler choices, the double tube front bumper, is a great choice for Jeep fans that appreciate a simply understated exterior. These bumpers are perfect for off-roaders that also need to park in a reasonably sized parking space at your office.
Tube bumpers are available for the rear as well, so if you’re looking for a simple, refined look, steel tube bumpers on the front and rear can be a great and cohesive look but don’t be afraid to mix it up a bit. You’ll also want to think seriously about how often you’re planning to use your Gladiator to tow. No matter what bumpers and accessories will work best for your 4x4, count on CJ’s to provide everything on your list.
