Smittybilt XRC rear w/ tire carrier

Comments about SmittybiltXRC Armor Rear Bumper with Hitch and Tire Carrier:

The product is not a bad product, it looks sharp and was easy to install. It is solid and feels like it will last for quite some time. It comes with a fixed class 3 hitch so that is a perk as well. I was not impressed with the 3rd brake light attachment as I would have to run an additional wire to run it. In order to fix that problem I had to purchase another bracket that attached to my door and u

Tire carrier spindle cover is not needed or easy to install. I left it off and it works fine without it.

Comments about SmittybiltXRC Armor Rear Bumper with Hitch and Tire Carrier:

This XRC rear bumper/carrier looks fantastic! It was a pretty simple install. As I've heard before, the hardest part is getting it lifted to the bolts. I actually used my high lift jack thru the trailer receiver and jacked it up to get the bolts started. Good solution, but be careful since it may squash your toes it if falls off the jack. Everything lined up perfectly and the instructions were dec

Comments about SmittybiltXRC Armor Rear Bumper with Hitch and Tire Carrier:

This is a hard core solid bumper that looks and feels like you are bolting on military armor. High quality, good looks, and easy install. What more could you ask for?

Comments about SmittybiltXRC Armor Rear Bumper with Hitch and Tire Carrier:

I was a little reluctant to review this product until I lived with it for a couple of weeks. The bumper is attractive and was easy to install. Unfortunately the tire carrier is not as advertised on the 4 wheel parts site. There are no bearings on the tire carrier. it is a basic pinch clamp with metal riding on metal and at the base on a small plastic bushing. There is no adjustability contrar

 

Just plain AWFUL!

Comments about SmittybiltXRC Armor Rear Bumper with Hitch and Tire Carrier:

Though the Rear Bumper looks great, vibrations from the road cause the handle to slip out of the lock position and cause the swing gate to unlatch. The swing gate that holds my 35" tire has swung open on the highway on numerous occasions. This could cause a terrible accident. The metal that holds the latch has worn away and now the gate NEVER locks! I am using twist ties to keep the gate shut.

 

Poorly designed brake light and carrier.

Comments about SmittybiltXRC Armor Rear Bumper with Hitch and Tire Carrier:

Rugged looking bumper and convenient receiver built into the bumper. The bracket for the brake light had broken 4 times in 3 years. It is too thin and flimsy. It vibrates and will eventually break leaving your light and bracket dangling by the wires. The bracket will scratch your paint. The tire carrier lacks adjustability. The roll pin doesn't align with the keyhole. It requires great effort t
