Warrior Front Bumper Update

Warrior Front Bumper FJ CruiserI have had the Warrior Products FJC front bumper installed for a little over a year now with no issues at all. The bumper has held up really well: zero rattles, zero problems with the powder coat, and of course it looks great.

About two weeks ago I added the Warrior Products Filler Plate to my bumper in order to protect the vulnerable area between the bumper and skid plates.

Up until the filler plate install there was zero rust on the bumper, however since the filler plate was installed rust has been showing up around the top 5 screws. Unfortunately the filler plate was not direct bolt on and a little modification was needed. Out of 7 bolts only 3 were able to be installed without drilling. The top outside screws were blocked by an angled support piece of the bumper and the screw would not fit through the hole.

Also, the bottom two mounting tabs did not line up with the factory skid plate mounting holes which looks like what Warrior had in mind. Drilling and tapping was required to mount the bottom to bolts. I’m still thinking about the best way to deal with the rust issues that have cropped up, I’ll update the FJC Magazine Facebook Page when I figure out a solution.
