Smittybilt's M1 Rear Truck Bumpers will set the standard for all truck bumpers. Each M1 is manufactured out of 3/16 inch cold rolled steel with 1/4 inch mounting plates and powder coated in Smittybilt's signature series two stage powder coat. Each M1 comes standard with 7/8 inch solid D-Ring mounts and completely bolts on and requires no drilling. When you're looking for the very best in bumper technology look to Smittybilt to set the standard for everyone.
Bought for 2014 FJ. I have a competitor's front winch bumper and was going to get the rear to match however I liked the look of the M1 better, my mistake. The build was good quality, the fit was very poor. On both sides there is a large gap and on the driver side the cut is wavey instead of following the contour of the side panels. The back door when open has major gap all along where bumper should meet the vehicle. The square light on the bumper looks like a design flaw as well, don't fit well.
Product is built well, powder coating texture isn’t good though. Dealing with 4wp was the worst part. Waited an entire week and half with multiple calls and emails for updates when part was being shipped with no help. They kept saying we will get back to you and never did. Took 4 emails and 4 calls to get a response from them.

This bumper is sturdy adorable. What I like most about it is that it follows the OEM bumper. So it actually looks Factory. My only downside is that the step plate does not meet the back of the vehicle flush oh, like the OEM bumper so there is a visible Gap of about 1" that you can see when you open the rear door. I will be filling that Gap with ABS plastic. However it would not have cost Smittybilt all that much material can make the bumper meet the back of the vehicle flush. The backup lighting is a welcome addition

Love this bumper! Not too hard to install, I was able to do it by myself. I've already used it for one extraction just a week after installation.

4.0Good looking bumper
First off I had some trouble with the shipping, it was listed as tires with the freight company and they were unable to deliver it to my house because it was on a full size semi.
As for the installation, it really needs color instructions. When you have to make cuts to the rear plastic body panels its impossible to see a white line on a silver part with a black and white photo. Also the entire bumper needs to be able to be adjusted left and right, there is a 1/2" gap on the passenger side and its flush on the other side.
Overall I am happy with this bumper, great price, solid mounting, and good paint.

This a great looking bumper and it is very easy to install with the right tools.
Just means it doesn’t come with a hitch, but with a designed shape to support the oem hitch underneath.
I like it, strong nice and not too expensive. Instructions could be better (I cut the oem bumper in a different way, to better hide the apace between the body and the bumper).

Because of the mounting location my aftermarket hitch had to be removed. The factory hitch has different mounting locations.

Do you have to cut the bumper cover where the side panel is below tail light for install?
Answer this question
Yes, the side panels are attached to the bumper and need to be cut. Directions are pretty clear to where you cut.
