I can't say enough good about this bumber system, as It handles everything from being a great rear Wench mount to taking the Tire wieght off from my tail gate, a very well designed and built bumper. The tire stil swings open with the tailgate for easy one button use. With my sons helping hands this was an easy saturday morning project.
I have owned this product for over a year and have hated it since day one. bumper rattles constantly and feels like it is falling off, even when going over speed bumps and normal everyday driving. I have had to use tie down straps to minimize banging sounds and have to tighten bolts often(every other week). friends love to make jokes about hearing me come down the road and how it feels when they are in the jeep. contacted co. rep and they sent me a t handle to solve problem and was told it would help. problem is they want me to cut holes in bumper and weld parts. I contacted local 4wd shop and they said not to do it since it would cause even more problems. I'm saving money now to buy a different bumper. I can't even sell it for 1/4 the price and will probably end up giving it away just to be rid of it. I was going to buy matching front bumper but decided it would probably be junk as well. Expected bumper to atleast be decent for [$].
Olympic sells this bumper with two different swing arms one as shown in the above pics and one that is a basic swing arm that attaches to the tailgate for one open motion. The bumper is assume has all the goodies: Winch holder, Hi-Jack points, D-Rings holes, spots for CB antenna, and Winch controls. Where as other winch bumpers required mounting the winch under the jeep which means changing the muffler system. Now the Tire carries if you can lift your tire up and mount it then I recommend getting Olympics other option that has a one motion tailgate open. The swing bolts to the tailgate and that makes life easy. If you have a bad back or can't lift your 37-40's then go with this carrier system. This tire carrier is heavy-duty very thick steel and adds about 80lbs to the bumper witch with a winch is already 150lbs easy. So be prepared to add a 1-2" lift spacer to the rear of your jeep. The main problem with this tire carrier is it's over engineered. It latches work but could be better. You will need to add a safety wire to the lock pins so you don't loose them. It does rattle but not bad and the tire angles back away from the jeep instead of straight up and down (personal preference). All in all the bumper is great compared to others out there.
