Jeep Wrangler Swing ARM and Body Armor 4 x 4 rear bumper
My wife and I installed the rear bumper and swing arm ourselves so if we can do it, any shop should be able to with no problems. Everything lined up on my 2011 JK wrangler sport. I have had no issues with latches and truthfully have not noticed any abnormalities. Bit I am also not an avid off roader but I due take it off road occasionally.

Great Product, Great Price
Very easy to install, instructions could have had more detail. Looks great, no rattles and very sturdy!

Good but not great for the money
A good product but not great. The powder coat satin wrinkle finish looks great. The bumper itself looks stylish, increased clearance and narrow appearance. Good lines that match the rear of the jeep. The anchor points for the D-Rings are oddly placed high on the bumper with a welded bracket with an odd angle, so when you install the D-Rings, due to the angle, the D-Rings rest on the bracket and rub and rattle. (Use of D-Ring isolators required)The Tire carrier has a very heavy Cam set up that appears to work very well and is very sturdy, however, there is an issue with the tire carrier. It is in a triangle configuration, but it is not equal on both sides. The left side has a steeper angle than the right. The tire, when mounted, is centered, however, when you look at the tire carrier close, it does look a little odd as it is not symmetrical. The other concern is the Latch to hold the tire carrier closed on the bumper. It has no lock (Not a big deal for me, by maybe others) but this seems very flimsy to me. It is not very sturdy and instead if using a stainless steel cam or rod configuration mounted on the bracket, they have used a flange type with a small steel rod (I mean small) rod welded between the flange set up for the tire carrier latch. The powder coat has already chipped off and the rod is already bent (This really concerns me !!!) I have only had the bumper for two weeks. I have not gone off-roading yet with this new tire carrier, but I have a major concern this latch is going to break !!! If I did this again, I think I would change to the Smittybilt Atlas rear bumper...

Perfect fit. Awesome value!!
Added this tire swing when we installed the bumper (JK-2394), went together perfectly. If you can't make this work, you didn't follow the directions. Installed in about 30 min. Hardest part was lifting the spare tire up at the end, lol!!!

Buy it. Stupidly simple to install, looks great, good quality paint finish. Way better than some tire carriers i've seen. wont block your license plate so no need to relocate it. Bumper and tire carrier can be done in two hours even if you got a couple beers in ya. instructions weren't fantastically detailed but still easy enough.

Lets see if this one is deleted. Do not buy Body Armor and if you do, do not be surprised if it will not fit up as required. The mechanics at 4 Wheel Parts did their best, absolute best to fit all parts together. They tried 2 different bumpers and 4 different swing arms to get them to fit. Spindles on the bumpers were either too large for the bearings or the ID on the bearings were too small. The swing arm tire carriers were built on an angle so it would not seat on the end of bumper. Body Amor just kept sending out new parts or shims (to solve the bent swing arm) Just a word to the wise

Dont go anywhere close to Body Armor.
2012 Rubicon- 3rd swing arm ordered is NOT built square. Cant support on bumper. Spacer kit BA sent lifts the arm so high you cant get cotter pin through castle nut. I had a BA front winch and rear bumper on my 2004 TJ, no problem. But today, BA is not customer-centric by any stretch of the imagination. The guys at 4 Wheel Parts, Phoenix, have been in constant contact with BA. Results- To No Avail!
And I cant say enough about 4 Wheel Pts. They have been working their butts off to rectify the situation. You can buy from 4WPts but just don't anything that's Body Armor. And if you do, don't be surprised that it does not fit and the Body Armors' reaction is, who cares, we got paid, and we do not care how many times you drive across Phoenix (4) . If the 4th swing arm we just ordered today does not work then everything I bought, bumper, swing arm, gas can carriers, high lift jack carrier goes back. No excuses!!!!!!!!
Is the stock 2011 Toyota Tacoma tailgate mounted backup camera still capable of viewing the ground when backing up? I will have a 275x75x16 mounted for a spare.

The backup camera will be blocked with this unit installed. Thank you for the question.

I have this carrier currently. I am looking for a bearing replacement kit. I was told you carry it by the people at Body Armor - the part number I was told was "5294-BRNG KIT". That doesn't seem to show any results. Any ideas?

Thanks for the inquiry Josh, the Body Armor 4x4 Toyota Tacoma Tire/Can Swing Arm Carrier in Textured Black part # B/ATC-5293 you can only order by phone 800-421-1050, that is a good part #.
Will this work with a 2014 Rubicon Unlimited Stock bumper?
