If you're running big-dog tires on your Wrangler, the factory tire carrier on the tailgate will not be up to the job. Even 33 inch tires can stress out that factory carrier. This rear bumper/tire carrier combo is the solution. Built to take up to 40 inch tires, it takes all the load off the tailgate and puts it on the bumper via our Mega-Duty Spindle design.
The reviews pointing out the difficulty with installation and fit didn't sway my purchase and I expected some bumps along the way yet experienced none. Installed this is less than 2 hours. Only disappointment is that there is no provision for mounting a wiring connection for trailer lights.
Great reliable bumper.
well needless to say I got stuck in deep snow and we got out by tugging on the bumper and dragging me 50 yards it is everything they say and more best on the market and tested tough for shure
I'm enjoying the bumper. My 35 inch tire has no problem on the tire carrier. No rattles what so ever. Only complaint I have is the 4wd.com description is not correct, this bumper is not "Textured" black powder coat. It is smooth and shiny black. I painted it with Rustoleum bed liner to get the look I wanted. Still worth it. FYI there is a black powder coat offered by Bestop, just not this one.
put front and rear high rocks on my 2006 tj rubicon when new they have saved the body from rock and tree damage many times and still look great. I wish the tj frame had this tough of finish. 2" hitch square tube hitch fit perfect will not take the 2" solid square stock hitch but the jeep isn't built to tow 10,000lbs
2" receiver hole is only 1 7/8", regular 2" receiver will NOT go in.
I had this bumper/tire carrier installed a couple months ago, and I couldn't be happier with it. It easily handles my 35" spare tire while driving over bumpy roads and rock trails. The spindle that takes the spare tire weight is huge! I have no rattle or other such noises from this bumper, plus it is designed to let you open the tailgate door just as if the spare wasn't there. Also, Very price competitive with all other tire carriers.
