Make the most of your rear bumper with our XHD Rear Bumper System. This revolutionary new bumper features easy installation, amazing looks and two reinforced heavy-duty D-Ring attachment points. Special �inner mounting plate� provides an extremely secure mounting point - strong enough for off-road use! The two-piece design allows use with and without tire carrier options (Same tire carrier option as the JK XHD Bumper!). Heavy-duty powder coated steel design looks great but is extremely tough. Mount on the optional RUG11546.42 Tire Carrier and you can hold up to a 35� tire.
The bumper went on very easy took about 45 minutes start to finish. The tire carrier was another story After bumper was on holes on passenger side for location of swing arm bracket were off by 1/4". no matter how I move bumper and mounting brackets could not get holes to line up. Had to remove entire bumper again to elongate holes so bolts would line up properly. Once this was done tire swing was installed, it was not level. Drivers side was 1/2to3/4 inch higher than passenger side. Solved this problem by placing washer under mounting bracket on passenger side, the 2 bolts that are closest to side of car , this solved problem but would have preferred not having to use washers. All said and done love the way it all looks .3hours total time to install
This is the bumper AND tire carrier, correct?

Does the XHD rear bumper pictured here come with the tire carrier or is that sole seperately? I also think it says that it comes with the d-rings but wanted to make sure they were included as well. Thanks, Beth
