The RH4x4 Rear Bumper and Tire Carrier is one of our favorite products. Not only does it have the strongest mounting system on the market, it's also the easiest to live with. We've seen people struggle to open or close their tire carrier cage and thought, "that's not the way it has to be". Our proprietary dual-stage latching mechanism and "pre-load" design prevent vibration and wobbling to help ensure whether you are on the toughest off road trail or loading gear into the back of your Jeep. Our Rear Bumpers are full width to protect your vulnerable corner panels and tail gates including protrusions below your tail lights. With end plates designed to provide maximum departure angle and clearance, our design prevents you from getting "hung up" on tough trails and sharp, off camber turns. Plus, with oversized tires, rubbing and tire gouging is never a concern. Our rear bumper is finished off with an overhang under your tub for a clean look that also provides a skid surface when reversing over an obstacle. The rear bumper features frame tie-in's that extend the full length along the sides of your fuel tank. This replaces your factory receiver for the strongest Cherokee rear bumper mounting system on the market. Your rear bumper has the potential to take more abuse than any other body armor on your Jeep. Whether its on road traffic collisions or off road rock damage, you need some serious armor to keep you safe. 1/4" thick plate steel corner guards with 3/16" x 2" x 4" thick tubing center sections combine to offer what is truly the strongest bumper you can install. High clearance corners, user friendly "1-finger operation" latch, and a weather resistance finish make this rear bumper combo a no brainer. The secret to the tire carrier's success is in house designed and constructed hub assembly. Instead of a single bearing system like competing models, we use a dual bearing and race combo for smooth and consistently reliable operation. See our components section below for complete details. All this strength adds up to one of the best spare tire size carrying capacities on the market: a massive 38" tire!
