Ford Bronco owners already have their fair share of aftermarket bumper upgrades available, including Fab Fours’ new Grumper, DV8’s unit with a built-in winch, another integrated winch bumper from Bay Area Metal Fabrication, and a full lineup of offerings from ARB 4×4 Fabrication. Now, after debuting a custom Ford Bronco Sport and a one-off Bronco build at the 2021 SEMA Show, Baja Forged is getting into the game with its new Crawler front bumper for the rugged off-road SUV.
The Baja Forged Crawler bumper fits all 2021-2022 Ford Bronco models and is designed to fit the SUV’s body lines perfectly, yet seriously beef up its appearance as well. Constructed from mandrel bent .090 wall 1.5-inch steel tubing, the Crawler bumper comes with grade 8 mounting hardware and is finished in black satin powder coating to make it extra durable.
The new Crawler bumper features a pair of D-Ring mounts and a front bash bar, as well as an integrated winch mounting plate that conceals that useful tool for a super sanitary look. There’s plenty of space for additional accessories as well, including proximity sensors, lights, and an aluminum skid plate, and the Crawler is also designed to provide more clearance – up to 32-38 degrees – for an improved approach angle when compared to the OEM unit.
Baja Forged also notes that the Crawler front bumper is easy to install using factory holes and integrated skid plate mounting brackets, though a little trimming is necessary. A variety of accessories designed to fit the new piece are coming soon – including an add-on skid plate with either no logo or a Baja Forged logo, pod light mounts, sensors, and an adaptive cruise control relocation bracket, but for now, the Crawler bumper retails for $2,510 and is available to pre-order.
