A newly redesigned bumper allows the Wrangler to take on rocks, ruts, divots and other obstacles with a head on approach. The bumper is also winch capable with removable end caps which are part of the reason why they Rubicon can get over tougher terrain. The package also allows for taller tires with sizes up to 265/70R17. The new Wrangler Rubicon also sits about ½” taller than the previous models.
