VKS Fab Enforcer Front Winch Bumper

VKS Fab Enforcer Front Winch Bumper




The Enforcer Front Bumper is a fully loaded option for the Jeep JK. We built this bumper with the intention to pack in all the options Jeep owners are looking for in a light, compact, grill-width bumper. It features mounts for the OEM fog lights, sunken winch mount to promote airflow, integrated fairlead mount, as well as aggressive styling. This bumper is also completely bolt-on with NO frame modification necessary with the “crash bar” staying fully intact. It is built from 3/16″ and ¾” A36 American made steel and is CNC cut, formed and MIG/TIG welded to perfection in-house. The base model comes in at light weight 45 lbs. We are offering two hoop options, Stinger (tall one bend hoop) and Winch Hoop (lower profile two bend hoop). Both are constructed from 2” x .120” tubing and are fully gusseted. We also offer custom end-user designed hoop options (call/email for more information).


For more information or to place an order click HERE




We recommend our Enforcer lower skid plate if you plan on keeping the “crash bar” intact. It can be found HERE


The Enforcer fits all 2007-2015 Jeep Wrangler’s. The 2012+ JK’s may require relocation of the factory vacuum pump dependent upon winch used.

A lot of guys have asked to see one with the winch hoop. Here are some pictures of the renderings. The tube gussets are not shown, but they are included and used on all of our hoops. We will have a real life model put together in the next day or so.

A couple guys inquired to see about the Warn Zeon fitting. It fits without issue. You also do not need to run any type of spacers and you do not have to relocate the vacuum pump either!!

I cancelled my order for a competitors bumper and placed my order for this one. Ordered it two months ago, before this one was available, and still no idea when it was going to be made or shipped. I hope you have enough in the first batch to send mine. Looking forward to it.

We appreciate the order! The base model's are built and in stock, they just need hoops. Your bumper will be headed you way in the next couple days.

Bumper arrived Friday. Test fit today. I love the look of this bumper! Going to get it powder-coated sometime this week.

I did have a small issue with the bolts on the backside of the bumper not lining up with the mounting holes on the frame horns. The bolt spacing on the bumper was approx 1/8"-1/4" narrower than the holes on the frame end. I ended up using a round file to elongate the medial side of all 8 bolt holes. After about 15 minutes, I was able to clearance the bolt holes enough for the mounts to line up.

Also, if you are keeping the vacuum pump in the stock location, and you are using the bumper with the fog light cut-outs, you will need to install the drivers side fog light before you bolt on the bumper.

As usual Vic, beautiful design and excellent welds. Form and function to a T. That bumper should be in an art exhibit.

We're glad you like it!!

We apologize about the fitment issue. The problem is Jeep decided to make one of the holes on each side of the front fame horns an odd size. In the past we have used a slightly undersized 7/16" studs to accommodate this. However on this bumper we want to use the larger 1/2" studs. We fit a couple of these bumpers on different JK's and on one of them we had to enlarge the odd size hole to 1/2" using a drill bit. It is a tight fit however.

The upper left hole in the pic is the issue.

Looks great! Do you have any pics from the top or side? Want to see how far it sticks out from the grill. Thanks!

Here is a side shot. I don't see how it could be any closer and still fit a winch in there.
