3.0 Good but lacks quality control on small stuff

First off this product is built thick!! It went on fairly easy and the powder coating is really nice. They packaged it great with lots of protection. BUT, one of the tabs is welded on crooked at a vertical angle so it’s very obvious. The instructions we next to useless and the bolts have me a bit worried. Unfortunately they are some metric size and I couldn’t find them at my local hardware store. The swing arm seems super solid but not the cam that adjusts the arm and definitely not the bolt to lock the cam in place. I’m just going to be ready to modify it when it needs it.

2.0 Didn’t work out

Bumper looks awesome but so poorly machined that I can’t hang the tire carrier on it at all. Seems very sturdy and quality materials but the build quality is just unacceptable.

4.0 Great add to my XJ!

This is a great add to my jeep. It's not lightweight but it's not too heavy either. The jeep rides a little smoother as the back end doesn't bounce around as much either. It would've been great if they could've added a way to run light wires from the bottom left corner to wheel mount location and with the amount of complaints about the gas can size restriction, I would think it would've been addressed already.

5.0 Can fit a ZJ

It does not bolt in directly to a zj but it can be made to fit if you have time to drill a bunch of holes, cut some of the brackets and buy new bolts. Looks great on mine once it was done!

4.0 10/10 if your worried about weight dont buy

super nice bumper , beware it does weigh a good bit (without adding the spare) so if your trynna save weight u prob dont wanna get this kit. install went as most xj work , normal rusted bolts that came from factory no big deal just slow down an take ur time. Ive towed dirtbikes and 4 wheelers with this and it handles it no problem. swing gate is greasable so thats always good. overall a great bumper very solid and doesnt bounce around even with a 35 in mud tire as a spare no rattles or annoying noises.



Question & Answers

26 Answered questions

Q: Is there a spot for a license plate since the tire carrier would be covering the stock location? Answer this question

A: There’s not but Smittybilt has a relocation license plate bracket to put in the middle of your spare tire

Answered by JaviXJ from Albuquerque, NM on 07/01/2022

A: The license plate relocation bracket is separate. It doesn't not have a dedicated license plate mounting point

Answered by Petersaurus Rex from Illinois on 07/01/2022

A: NO, there is not. However, with relative ease I used some thin stock aluminum bars found at any home improvement store, and added extensions from the existing license plate holes to shoot the plate out to the drivers side, beyond the spare tire. A couple pieces of sticky felt on the back keeps it from rattling on the door. Looks totally fine.

Answered by XJMATT from Temecula on 06/30/2022

Q: Can this bumper be used with shackle relocation brackets?  Answer this question

A: Depends on design of brackets. If relocation brackets have a flange that mates with bottom surface of “frame” rails, it won’t just bolt up. Bumper brackets will have to be modified to accommodate thickness of shackle brackets. A minor fab job if you have a welder. 

Answered by XJwillikers from West coast on 06/05/2022

A: Yes I have the taboo customs shackle relocation bracket installed with this bumper

Answered by Nickyg from Charlotte nc on 06/05/2022

A: Yes. I believe that most relocation brackets should work.

Answered by Petersaurus Rex from Illinois on 06/05/2022

Q: Does this bumper come with all screws and bolts needed for installing it? Answer this question

A: Yes.

Answered by Petersaurus Rex from Illinois on 03/20/2022

A: Yes... All I purchased was the bumper kit and loctite. No specialty tools required. Lubricate hinge points per instructions. Instructions should be read first.

Answered by Daddyawesome from Fresno, CA on 03/20/2022

Q: Bolt patterns available on the tire plate besides 5 on 4.5? Answer this question

A: There are multiple holes on the plate so they may possibly line with other hole patterns. There is also enough room on the plate to drill additional holes as needed to line up with your bolt pattern. The Rustoleum black wrinkle finish paint works great to touch up the parts after drilling or to cover scratches.

Answered by .... on 09/03/2021

A: It can be 5x4.5, 5x5, or 5x5.5

Answered by Kelly from 4WP Corporate Headquarters on 09/02/2021

Q: Where do you find a Jerry can that will actually fit in the Jerry can holder? Because a real Jerry can does not. Answer this question

A: I got my can from Harbor freight. I think it's a Midwest Industry can. It fits perfectly.

Answered by 96 JeepXJ from Albemarle NC on 05/11/2021

A: Harbor Freight 5 gallon jerry can fits perfect.
