The factory bumper on your JK is great for the highway, but if you wanna make it perform better on the trails, then today we're looking at this Smittybilt SRC Stinger bumper fitting your 2017 and 2018 Jeep Wrangler. This Smittybilt SRC Stinger bumper is constructed of a durable three-sixteenth inch plate steel, with a two inch DOM tubing, on the stinger portion. It's powder coated in a textured black that will last a long time. It features mounts for your winch, extra lights, and the fair lead, and even some mounts for some shackles. Today, we're gonna get it installed on our 2008 Jeep Wrangler.
Tools needed for this installation, a three-eighth inch ratchet, five-eighth inch socket, 17 millimeter socket, a half-inch ratchet, three-quarter inch socket, a six inch extension, 17 millimeter box wrench, trim removal tool, a drill, an eighth inch pilot drill bit, and a half-inch drill bit.
Before we can get our Smittybilt Stinger installed, we gotta get rid of this factory eye-sore that's left on our Wrangler. To get the front bumper removed, you have to pull out eight bolts. Now there's four on this side, two on the outside of the frame rail, and two on the inside, here. We're gonna start with these outside ones, and use a three-quarter inch socket. To get the nuts removed from inside the frame rail, we're gonna remove this filler plate, here. We're gonna go right underneath the push-pin, and just pop it up.
With the filler plate removed, you now have easy access to the inside of the frame rail, and you can get to those two nuts. Repeat the same process on the other side of the Jeep. With all the nuts removed, you can remove your factory bumper. Before we mount up the new bumper, we're going to attach the skid plate that Smittybilt provides. It simply goes right underneath, like such, and uses inch-and-a-quarter hardware, which is provided. We're gonna put the bolt through, this way, and put a washer and the lock-nut on the backside. Grab an extra pair of hands, and you can put on your new bumper.
With the bumper on, you're now ready to install the hardware. You actually get a bolt, and then three nuts, and washers. This bolt, you put a washer on, and then it goes to this upper left-hand corner, and threads into the bumper. And it's the same like that on the other side. Then the other three just get nuts on the back of them with washers. There's two more nuts and washers that need to go on, on the outside of the frame rail. There's one up top here that's pretty hard to see. Put a washer on it first, then put a lock-nut on there, then put another washer on the lower one, and a lock-nut. Then we'll get these tightened up with a three-quarter-inch socket.
Once you get all this tightened down, repeat the same process on the other side. We've got the Jeep up in the air, just to show you guys a little bit better of the last three holes that you need to drill. The lower skid-plate has these three square notches. You're gonna drill up through your cross-member. And we're gonna start with a pilot hole, and then drill it out to a half-inch. Now you're ready for your half-inch final drill bit size. With the holes drilled, we can now install our new hardware, up under the cross-member.
Then we'll go back and tighten these up. Once you get all three of these tightened down, your installation is complete.
We just finished up the install of this Smittybilt SRC Stinger bumper, and it looks really great on the front end of our JK. Really gave us that aggressive look, plus this stinger's gonna come in handy when we take it off-road. This bumper has provisions for light mounts, plus you can mount a winch onto it. Now it's installed in about two hours, using basic hand tools, and you could find it, as well as many other great bumpers, right here at CJPonyParts.com.
