Expedition One Basics

I know it’s been a long time coming for all you Expedition One fans out there but after reading through this press release, I think you’ll agree that the wait was totally worth it.  Over the next few weeks, Expedition One will be releasing a series of new bumpers and accessories for the new Jeep JK Wrangler, the first of which includes a line of products that focuses on what Jeepers really need and nothing more…. the Basics.

At the top of the list is the all new, no frills Expedition One JK Basic Winch Mount.  Constructed of high-grade, precision cut 3/16″ steel, this winch mount, which also happens to double as the ultimate shorty front bumper, is intended to be used with the factory Jeep JK Wrangler recovery hooks and work with most WARN and Superwinch winches that have a load rating of up to 9,500 lbs.  Truly, this front bumper/winch mount has been designed with one purpose and one purpose alone – function on the trail.  And, with it being that it’s available in a satin black powder coat for $189.95 or in bare steel for only $169.95, it is also one of the most affordable ones available on the market today.*

Next up is the Expedition One JK Basic DX Bumper.  Similar in its design and function to the standard JK Basic Winch Mount, the DX Bumper has been developed with a more profiled look and also comes equipped with two integrated recover points built out of ½” thick plate and gusseted with 3/16″ steel.  Another great feature of the DX Bumper is that it can be purchased in a super durable textured black powder coat finish for $289.95 or in bare steel for only $229.95.

Last but not least in the line up is the super beefy, rock tough Expedition One JK Rubi Skid.  This heavy duty skid plate is designed specifically for the Rubicon model Jeep JK Wrangler and is intended to replace the low hanging factory plastic airdam and subsequent lower cross member that is hidden underneath it.  It’s specific purpose is to protect the Rubicon (as well as some newer X or Sahara models that come equipped with one) electronic sway bar disconnect motor but it can be used regardless if your Jeep has one or not.  In addition to being made out of beefy 3/16″ thick steel, the JK Rubi Skid offers an added benefit in its unique design which allows the electronic sway bar disconnect motor to be rotated upward providing greater clearance from boulders and obstacles on the trail.  Available in a black powder coat satin finish for $198.95 or in bare steel for only $159.95, the Rubi Skid can be used with all the Expedition One bumpers including the JK Basic Winch Mount (only $369.95 for everything if purchased as a package) and Basic DX Bumper (only $459.95 as a package), as well as the factory Jeep JK Wrangler bumper and even some after market bumpers made by other manufacturers.

  1. Eddy–you rock! …this site rocks! You have the scoop on the Expedition One bumpers before Expedition One has even updated their web site.

    This is the bumper I’ve been waiting for!

  2. yeah these are the bumpers i have been waiting of aswell! simple and to the point: form follows function…been looking for a simple bumper with the ablity to 1)retain my factory hooks. 2)equip a winch sunk down into the rails. and 3) add clevis brackets. this has met all my expectations and made it as simple as possible and at a very affordable price! heck for roughly the price of Warns winch plate i get all i wanted! great job: james, excelent!


  3. Great bumpers, but I am thoroughly impressed by the simplicity of the design for the skid! And the prices are good, too! Finally, someone was thinking of making a product for real wheelers that didn’t break the bank or weigh down the front of the rig!

  4. I like the look of these bumpers, but they look nothing like the bumper displayed on their web site since November of last year. Any chance of a bumper which can utilize the factory fog lights or add another set of lights?!


  5. Hi Tom, so far as I know, you cannot reuse the factory fogs with this bumper and I’m not sure if you can add another set of lights to it. I will try to find out from Expedition One and let you know.
