ICI: Magnum Grille Guard Bumpers

Proving the “innovative creations” part of its name is no gimmick, ICI is adding a grille guard to its Magnum Series bumper line. Unlike other bumpers, which use one or two bend angles to try to keep up with a truck’s profile, the Magnum grille guard bumper uses a “roll form” process to identically match the radius of the hood and grille to your vehicle. In addition to a better blend, this one-piece design allows for custom stand-off location for headlight tubes and better structural integrity in case of collisions.

Features

  • Radial roll–formed tube identically matches the radius of the hood and grille of the truck.
  • Custom standoffs accommodate headlight tubes for more open clearance and cleaner look.
  • 75” diameter tubing.
  • 25” uprights tied directly to mounting/frame brackets for one-piece construction.
  • 3-stage coating process with matte-black powdercoat (raw finish optional).
  • 3-piece bracket assembly.
  • Made in the USA.

ARIES (1053): Grille Guard for Jeep Wrangler JL

ARIES grille guards take your custom Jeep Wrangler JL to the next level, whether you’re challenging the off-road trail, lighting up the town, or just getting the job done. ARIES grille guards offer an aggressive aftermarket look, extra front-end protection, and plenty of customization opportunities—along with two finish options, a vehicle-specific design, and a no-drill installation.

The wraparound brush guard, wire headlight cages, horizontal crossbars, and rubber-coated vertical risers all work together to not only enhance front-end protection but also to promote an aggressive, customized feel. 1-1/2” heavy-wall tubes are welded together to the vertical risers, creating a one-piece frame for maximum strength and rigidity. The 1053 grille enjoys a smooth black powdercoat, but a polished stainless steel version is also available.

ARIES has also made it easy for you to make these grille guards your own. A customizable center crossbar lets you add LED lights, while the wire headlight cages protect headlights from brush and debris. The cages can be removed if you want a sleeker aftermarket look.

These vehicle-specific grille guards are built just for your new Wrangler JL and come with mounting brackets that bolt on to your rig’s frame using existing mounting points.

Note: Grille guard may interfere with forward-facing cameras/sensors.

Features

  • One-piece, 1.5” diameter, heavy-wall tubing in high-strength carbon steel.
  • Durable semi-gloss black powdercoat.
  • Two predrilled holes in the crossbar for mounting LED light bars or work lights (lights not included).
  • Removable headlight cages for extra protection and a customizable look.
  • Vertical rubber stripping along the risers help maintain a clean finish.
  • Installation: no-drill, vehicle-specific for a custom fit.
  • Warranty: limited lifetime (3-year finish, 1-year parts).
