About Our Company and Our Jeep Wrangler JK® Alluminum Bumper

Lange Originals® have been making automotive accessories for Jeep* Wrangler®, Jeep® CJ-5 CJ-7, Jeep Wrangler® YJ, Jeep Wrangler® TJ, Jeep Wrangler® JK 4 door, 2 door Jeeps®. Lange Originals® has made Jeep Wrangler® bumpers for 20 years. We love our robust steel mount bumpers, but they weighed down the front end of the Jeep, causing it to lower fuel economy. We started developing an economical aluminum bumper in 2014 that would carry a winch. The aluminum bumper we ended up with is the “27 Special”™ featured on this website! Aluminum Jeep® bumpers are hard to come by, especially ones that won’t break the bank, and have all the capabilities that steel have. We take our Jeeps seriously here at Lange Originals® and the “27 Special”™ Aluminum Jeep® bumper is no exception. Why is the name “27 Special”™? The base aluminum Jeep bumper weighs in at just under 27 lbs. It has incredible takeaway angles that are much better than stock for tackling rocks that would rip off stock Jeep Wrangler JK® bumpers Lange Originals® has been serving the Jeep® and automotive community for over 20 years. Our most popular product, the Hoist-A-Top® has been a Jeep® enthusiast favorite for years. Lange Originals® specializes in quality products that remove Jeep® hardtops and increase garage space. Lange Originals® has a manufacturing facility in Salt Lake City, Utah.

    Introducing an all new Jeep** JK Bumper, the "27 Special". An aluminum, rugged and light weight design from Lange Originals®. Whether you rock crawl or stick to the pavement, this aluminum bumper fits all uses. Weighing in at only 27pounds, you will feel the better steering response and improved handling. The 27 Special is texture powder coated black for durability, appearance, and extended life. Aluminum ringed light guards offer additional protection and allow installation of your stock Jeep fog lights. High-clearance design allows for aggressive approach angles, and the use of larger tires, while providing corner protection from branches and brush. The tubular steel Grill Guard gives additional protection and has welded tabs for lighting options. The Winch Plate fits most 9000 pound winches mount the winch, between the frame rails, without relocating the vacuum pump. This means a lower center of gravity which further improves handling and pull angle. Optional Heavy duty CNC machined aluminum clevis tabs and D-Rings complete the off-road package.
