Body Armor's new sculpted design is compact to the body to maximize departure angles. 3/16 inch steel plate for strength. Machined pivot shaft for the swing arm. Reinforced gusseted mounting plates enhance the strength of the bumper. Double D- ring mounting points for recovery points. The bumper is notched to retain the factory trailer hitch preserving the Jeep's towing capability. Easy bolt on installation. Requires the purchase of part number B/A5294 swing arm tire carrier.
I installed this bumper 1 year ago and the finish is lifting off near the shackle. The original finish looked great, but is obviously was too thin to last more than a year. I am disappointed that I will have to take this bumper off and refinish it already. There has been no damage inflicted on this part since installation. It is a simple failure of quality control or a cheap finishing process.
i have owned this bumper for over a year and i can say its not that bad but right away experienced alignments with swing arm and would open up on highway!!! after getting a new part from body armor still run into issues. ps learn to use your side mirrors visuals out the back are minimal
a very good replacement for oem bumper, solid built, preforms well
Very well constructed and looks great on my Red Jk. Poor Instruction where I had many screws and bolts with no place to put them. I called the factory in Corona, CA and they were very willing to discuss my challenges. The instructions dictate one thing about use of exist bolts but the factory said not to pay any attention to that??? IMHO; Care should be given so that what you ship is appropriate for the year, make & model with out leading the consumer down a dark path. The instructions are very brief with not enough illustrations. More pictures would have saved me, I think... I had to purchase bolts to fit the lug nuts in order to mount the spare tire.
Bought this to replace the stock JK rear after tearing it mostly off on a stump. New B/A is solid and tight to the body which leaves much less bumper to smash down on rocks and yes... stumps. Only issue is it is real tight against the stock plate holder. Doesn't mention anything in the directions about modifying the plate holder so used a jack to lift the bumper to get the final bolt in. Awaiting the swing arm which is currently on back order. Overall very happy with the purchase.
my winch mounted great and it inhanced my jeeps looks
Simple & inexpensive bumper with a clean design. Feels sturdy but still quite light - weighs in around 60 lbs. Install took 45 minutes and was a direct bolt-on and perfect fit. I've only had it a couple of days so can't talk to how well it holds up yet. The description above says it has a pivot arm but it does not - this is a bumper-only setup; if you need bumper which works with tire carrier combo, get JK-2394 instead. I don't like the textured finish or shininess of the finish - the photos & sales person gave me the impression it would have more of a matte black finish... just looks cheap to me. I'll sand & repaint it matte black at some point to better match my front bumper. The stock photos shows a Body Armor logo on it but I was happy to happy it wasn't on there. If you just want a simple bumper without spending a lot of money, I think this is a good choice... deserves 3.5 stars.
Once OEM bumper was removed, the previously hidden areas of the body are now exposed. Bumper should come with some sort of facia to cover the now exposed body.
I am fixing to order this bumper but I need to know if it effects my factory trailer hitch and trailer light

Charlie, The Rear Bumper B/AJK-2961 will work with your factory trailer hitch and trailer lights. It will not interfere with the hitch and your wiring will hook up as normal. As you can see, it even has a notch in the bottom of the bumper just for that purpose

I have a factory installed tow package on my JK 2015 Willys 2 door. This bumper looks like it has a cut out for this set up. So if I install this bumper I can leave my tow sleeve and wire harness in place?
