ARIES has released a new bumper for the Jeep Wrangler JK: the TrailChaser. This replacement JK bumper is built for easy installation and customization, featuring a modular design, according to the company.
The ARIES TrailChaser bumper is constructed from modular pieces, allowing it to provide a different look for different styles of Jeep Wrangler JKs. It is available in 20 configurations for the front and two for the rear. Each bumper is available in aluminum or steel, and all are covered in the company’s highly durable textured black powder coat finish, according to ARIES.
The modular pieces of the TrailChaser are designed to fit together with tight seams for a professional-looking build.
The TrailChaser is also designed for a vehicle-specific fit on the Jeep JK. It uses pre-existing factory mounting points for no drilling required. There is also no need to relocate the vacuum pump during the installation process, according to the company.
In addition to 20 different configuration options, the TrailChaser is built to be customized with a number of accessories. Each bumper center section features a 22-1/2-inch by 7-3/4-inch universal winch housing to accept most types of winches. It is also compatible with a new winch adapter plate No. 2072100 with slotted holes to accept larger winches.
To protect the winch, ARIES said it offers two different brush guard styles: round brush guards or a stinger-style angular brush guard.
Something completely unique to the TrailChaser line is its LED-equipped end caps, according to ARIES. These end caps feature our new 2-inch flush-mount LED work lights No. 1501250 with Cree bulbs, IP68 and IP69K waterproof ratings and 2,200-lumen beams. The lights come with waterproof wiring harnesses and a switch.
Some of the other accessories available for the TrailChaser bumper include the new anti-rattle D-rings No. 2081300 by ARIES, which include a 9,000-pound. workload limit, an aluminum hawse fairlead (No. 2156070) for nylon rope and a roller fairlead No. 2156071 for heavier-duty winch applications.
