does anyone know of any bumpers that will replace the front bumper of a 02 Rubi? my factory rack and bumper combo arebent to **** and back and one of the welds on the bumper behind the plastic "gaurd" is broke, and would like to just remove that whole thing and put a stronger type bumper on there with maybe some type of stronger bash plate and get rid of the plastic

good luck tring to find one, for the whole time i had my rubicon (3 years) i never found one. i remember there was one but it looked really bad and i didnt like it at all, i cant remember what it was though. my bumper was destroyed too, i just rewelded and bent it back in place. it didnt look to good but it was better than it was.

Would the one that Warn makes for the Foreman not fit the Rubi?

The Warn ones are great, don't see why they wouldn't fit a Rubi, some don't like the look of the double bumper, I think it looks fine and the added protection is great, mine has taken a beating and still holding strong.

yeah i do love the Warn bumpers and believe that's what i may end up going with but i just wanted to check and see if there was any direct replacement so i could just throw out the facotry front .... since it does have welds broke and is bent pretty bad, but i guess i can just take it off find someone with a welder and weld piece back together and then heat up to straighten out some what and then cover it all with the Warn ..... thanks guys!

I have been lookin at rear bumbers BUT I have seen some front ones. Try lookin at Kimpex. I am goin to get it for my rear for the rubi and one for my husbands Rancher. They do make front ones too though. The ones I have been lookin at run around 69 dollars

Desert Hawk, you need to do some marketing! Nice work, looks good.

Rubi Girl, i have looked at the Kimpex and really like their back bumpers; which i may get also, but their front bumpers for an 02 come to a point in the front, and it is everything i can to get mine in the bed of my truck (when not using my trailer) w/o hitting the back glass, because i have a 01 F150 Supercrew so the bed is only 5.5 ft long ...... guess i could back it up the ramps that might be a little scary!!!!!!!!!! i've been looking at Ebay trying to find a front bumper and maybe rack that someone is parting out .... ran across a few but they are still selling for almost what you could buy a brand new one for ... guess i could do that and then make sure i put a warn or kimpes or some stronger bumper to cover it up

Replacement front bumpers

So does the moose front bumper replace the factory one or just go over top like the warn bumpers? I need a complete new front bumper because mine is wrecked. The replacement oem one sucks and I don't really want to get it||!

i know what you mean with the supercrew we got and 01 supercrew also and our foremans back tires wont go into the bed of our stuck since we have the bed extender and that takes about 4 inches out of the opening for the catch on it so we just leave the back tires on the tailgate and have enough room up front so that we dont have to worry about the window. but we now have a trailer now so we dont put it in the bed anymore
