Developed specifically for the hard core rock crawler, the HighRock 4x4 Rear Jeep Bumper features one hand operation to open both the tailgate and tire carrier at the same time. Can hold up to a 40 inch tire. Tire carrier mounts through bumper on a Mega-Duty spindle, which is adjustable and greaseable. MIG welded steel bracket with heim joints and the gate. Brake light relocation bracket included. All bumpers are E-coated and are finished in black powder coat.
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.
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.
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.

Is the Tire mount spacing a 5x5? The instructions and specs don't specify. It only mentions the extra holes are for 8x6.5.

Will it fit the original hitch on my 2012 Rubicon?

Hi there! In order to install and use this HighRock 4x4 rear bumper, you would need to remove your factory hitch from your JK Wrangler. This bumper has an integrated hitch that can be used once installed.
