Our TJ is 17 years old now and has had the old classic tube bumpers on it since new. With a 31" spare hanging on the tailgate it has just about destroyed the latch and hinges on the gate. Now with a new lift and 35's I knew we would need to upgrade to a bumper mounted spare and this was the one we chose.
I have a local powder coat company that offers PolyArmor Thermoplastic coatings so we went with this type of coating and it came out very nice.
Installation was pretty easy, but it is a challenge to access the rear of the frame box to tighten the bolts. I tried dropping the gas tank but this bumper extends down to cover the gas tank shield, so I had to re-install the shield before tightening all of the bumper hardware.
After mounting the 35" spare on the carrier it is rock solid and does not shake or squeak. I definitely recommend using the bottom corner bolts though, as they give it a lot of stability.
All said, we are very happy with the bumper and definitely would buy it again, although it is very expensive it is worth the price.

"Poison Spyder enough said....."
Poison Spyder is first class. The bumper is well built and welds are flawless. The Powder Coater was just as impressed. The bumper fits nicely with the Jeep's lines. My only complaint was with 4Wheel Parts for the 6 weeks it took to be delivered. Not real impressed with the customer service. But all in all I'm sure I'll buy here again...

Is the customer supposed to go out and get this painted or powder coated? Just wondering why bare steel?
