The rear bumper is manufactured out of 3/16" cold rolled steel and comes standard with a built in class III receiver hitch and two solid d-ring mounts that are welded on the inside and out for maximum strength. Bumper is designed to accept the Smittybilt Swing Away Tire Carrier #76654.The swing away tire carrier can be added to the bumper at any time.
Love the product, absolutely zero complaints. It’s exceeded my expectations so far. I’m pretty capable when it comes to DIY Jeep projects. The instructions could use some clarification and better designation between the various pieces of hardware. It required some educated guess work and a re-do steps but nothing that would deter me from advocating for this product. I towed a trailer 1,100 miles the day after I installed it. Checked the hardware, everything stayed tight. Honestly couldn’t be happier with it.
I love it Really good and strong material , looks amazing
What a great looking bumper. Put it on in about 5 hours but I am slow and detailed. Do yourself a favor and use a 5/8" bit to drill the 4 holes that are called for. The 7/16" is too small as the templates are not exact and the slightly larger hole will make it much easier to line up the bolts with hole in the limited space you will have. The 4WP tech confirmed this is what they do as well. On the 04-06 Unlimited models it is not necessary to drop tank as I was warned I guess due to the longer frame.....but definitely made my job easier. There is a little more hardware than you will use but I saved mine for a "just in case" later. There are brackets for both the TJ and the YJ you will use depending on your model. Install bracket as you are putting the two outside bolts in each end (TJ model) and save yourself a little time. Also, don't tighten or torque "anything" down until you have every bolt in place. You will need to move the bumper around to get each bolt in place. I used the center punch to line up holes. I think the finished product with the tire carrier looks great and well worth the money spent. Easily carries the weight of my 33 x 12.50. I am super pleased with the way mine turned out.
This is one stout bumper that mounts to the stock location on my LJ. Very easy to install as well. I towed my enclosed trailer with it and it did an outstanding job. Have a 35" tire mounted on the carrier and it works and works well. Smittybilt's customer service was outstanding as well. I called to confirm that I did not need to use the additional brackets that came with it and they answered on the first call.
Perfect beumper to compliment the front XRC bumper. Holes you will drill are a tad difficult to get the bolts into, but upon completion you will definately feel as you accomplished something big. Great purchase.
Great bumper very heavy duty. You need to drop the fuel tank to put 2 bolts on the driverside crossmember. You will also need to cut the reese hitch about a inch to allow the gas tank down.
