The XRC Bumpers have high degree approach angles and raised corners to maximize ground clearance. Manufactured from 3/16 cold rolled steel and then robotically welded to the exact specifications. Solid mount D-rings that are welded on the inside and outside. Welds are ground down and smoothed out, then a two stage textured matte black powder coat is applied for the ultimate look. Features a 2 receiver hitch and two D-ring mounts. Each bumper is developed to be a complete bolt on and requires no modifications to the vehicle.
Easy to install and instructions were 'ok'. Pictures on instructions could have been better and made the installation easier
It recommends no bigger then a 40" tire but I have 42.5 boggers and it works fine.at first when I closed the tailgate it did not latch but once 2 of us picked that HEAVY tire up and installed it then the gate latched perfect.only problem I had was the bolt that holds the handle on fell out sometime while I was driving.
After junk handle falls off they make u pay to get a new one and tell you your bolts should be checked daily.. 47$
Tire Carrier when installed per instructions would not line up with the factory welded latch. The pivot for the tire carrier was not welded pefectly, causing me to have to install tire carrier and us a come-a-long to bend carrier down to line up with the factory latch assymbly.
The bumper has been on my Jeep about 5 months so far and I'm pretty happy with it. It looks awesome and so far no rattles. When it shipped it was missing the bolts for the third brake light bracket and the lanyard they say comes with it. Sent Smittybilt an e-mail about it and got no response,kind of a bummer.Overall I really like it,now let's hope it holds up to time ,weather and abuse
I have this bumper installed on my 2015 Jeep Rubicon Unlimited. Do you have a mount, other than the center tire mount, where I can add Rotopax gas cans to either side of the spare tire. Thank you, Larry Aitchison
Asked by Larry from Salida, Ca. on
Larry, the Smittybilt XRC Armor Rear Bumper with Hitch and Tire Carrier doesn't have a mount for Rotopax, you will have to either get the: http://www.4wd.com/Exterior-Parts-Car-Care/Spare-Tire-Rotopax-Mounting-System.aspx?t_c=3&t_s=188&t_pt=11104&t_pn=OLY991-404 or fab up a mount. Hope this helps!
