In 1999, Jeep released the Jeep Grand Cherokee nicknamed the WJ. The Grand Cherokee (WJ) for multiple reasons, has been somewhat neglected when it comes to aftermarket support. There are several companies who have made a few things, but nobody truly embraced the WJ. At Olympus Offroad, we offer quality products that jeepers truly want and will not break the bank. Most WJ owners are a younger generation, possibly first time jeepers, who wants their rig to not only be functional but look good as well.
A WJ is known for being a bit more “Luxurious” as it offers leather seats, a comfortable ride, and higher-end styling. People want comfort and functionality and the WJ is the best of both worlds. However, there can be a few improvements such as the “A arm” TRE style setup. Overall, the geometry is spot on, and the WJ is ready hit a big boy trail. Olympus decided that it was time to show some love in the WJ world. The idea was to develop a product, price it at a point that the average consumer can afford, and give a quality product previously not offered. The first item Olympus Offroad decided was a WJ Stubby Bumper. WJ winch bumpers are known to be a bit steep in price, reaching around $1000. WJ stubby bumpers were a little cheaper at around $500, but still expensive for the average consumer.While there can be a few improvements such as the rear “A arm” TRE style setup, the geometry is spot on and read to setup to take on the big boy trail.

The first item Olympus Offroad decided on was a WJ Stubby Bumper. WJ winch bumpers are known to be a bit pricey and around $1000 on average with a few Stubby bumpers coming in around the $500 price range. Daniel and Cory sat down and made a decision that Olympus was going to hit the $300 mark, for a quality WJ Stubby Winch Bumper designed as a Baja Pre-runner
The bumper uses 3/16” plate for the winch bolt on support. The Lower skid section uses Dimple-died 10 gauge steel. The tubing consists of 1.5” Tube for the main section and pre runner bars. This base has proven to be an acceptable design in the market and feedback has been tremendously for the overall style. Customer have the option to build a bumper nearly ala cart in that they can select the pre-runner style, rock crawler stinger style, they can choose to add additional D-ring shackle mounts an optional style with radiator skid support and more. Olympus has a long list of items coming to market for the WJ world and is poised to take on the market by storm.
