    Evo Quarter Pounder

    Well I wanted to see if the quarter pounder for the JK would fit the JL since I just bought the bumper and Evo's website has the quarter pounder listed for the JK, JL and the JT but it doesn't fit. Not with out cutting this lip off the bumper 20190526_111447.jpeg20190526_111703.jpeg

    You have to cut it, get the sawz-all and an angle grinder with a flap wheel out.

    Might as well modify it to make it work, certainly cheaper than buying another if thats the route you want to go for a bumper

    There’s no way to run that bumper without cutting away that part of the frame horn. Once you commit, there is no return obviously.

    I just checked it again and you are going to have to cut 3" off the bumper at the lip or cut the frame

    The last picture from that point you still have a 3" gap between the bumper and frame to get it flush to get the bolts in

    Just so there is no confusion here:

    - You are not supposed to cut on the 1/4 pounder bumper!

    - You cut the FRAME HORNS that hang below the bottom of the new 1/4 pounder. Then the bumper will slide onto the ends of the frame.

    The design of the bumper is to have a thin profile and sit as close to the vehicle’s grill as possible, thereby provide better approach angles. I don’t have any install photos of when I did mine on my JKU, but if you are not cool with cutting on your frame (this is the no going back part) you should go a different route for a bumper.

    Only photo of mine before I added a stinger to it

    You have to cut more off of the JL than you do on the JK
