Demand for the Atlas bumpers has been high and has outstripped our production, but we’re stepping up production by adding tooling and weld fixtures.

4WD, leading provider of aftermarket Jeep parts and accessories, has started selling Smittybilt Atlas bumpers for Jeeps. The front and rear bumpers are designed for Jeep JKs from 2007 and up. The bumpers feature firsts including being truly contoured and employing a four-piece design.
“Demand for the Atlas bumpers has been high and has outstripped our production, but we’re stepping up production by adding tooling and weld fixtures,” says Glen Kukula, Smittybilt brand manager. At last year’s SEMA show in Las Vegas, Smittybilt showcased an Overlander Jeep JK outfitted with Atlas front and rear bumpers.
The Atlas front bumpers are truly contoured for fender to fender protection. There’s a four-piece design for easy installation. Smittybilt took pedestrian ADR (Australian Design Rules) into consideration for safety measures, meaning the bumpers can sell internationally. The front bumpers retain factory OE lights and have a low sitting recessed winch plate. There’s a shroud that covers the roller fairlead removable bull bar in front.
The rear Atlas bumper has double shear strength on the pivot point for the tire carrier and the carrier is easy to open using one hand. With the new design, the tire sits lower with a better center of gravity and the carrier is integrated with the bumper, creating less stress. Spare gas cans are mounted on the inside.
“The Atlas bumpers will quickly be one of our best-selling bumpers,” says Brandon Hood, 4WD Merchandising and Product Manager. “Smittybilt has really raised the bar with their new design.”
