Zinc under-coated, Dual Stage durable powder coat painted 1/4 steel plate for long life and protects your front end from those large rock out cropping's. Each bumper has been designed for the off road enthusiast with sloping ends for greater tire travel and enhanced entry and exit. Available in Textured Black only.
pretty easy for the weekend mechanic. be prepared to drop the rear of the gas tank a couple inches to gain access to four of the bolts. all the bolt holes do line up with my 1992 YJ.
Clean look, the only issue I had was the old jeep owner had welded the old bumper on... oh well the new one is on right!
Very well built and heavy but has a couple of issues. To fit a TJ you need to drill 4 holes which is no big deal but then you have to drop the gas tank to screw them in which is a pain in the butt. It also says it's only to be used for accessories like a cargo carrier and not for towing. I think it will handle a small utility trailer fine but I wouldn't pull a big trailer or boat. Lastly the holes that you put the pin through to hold the receiver hitch were too small and had to be reamed out. Typical for things made in China, specs lost in translation. Smittybuilt should be on top of that more. Overall I'm pleased especially for the price.
It looks great,but you realize how big the fuel tank is now.
The hitch and bumper are very nice quality, looks great too. There is only one hitch, pun intended, the back of the bumper, the mating surface to the frame is not flat. The hitch tube and weld beads protrude out from the back mounting plate. Causing it to hit the frame and a 1/4-3/8ths inch gap in the middle between the frame and bumper, and also causes the inner bolts to barely penetrate the threads making it a very weak mount to the frame. Poor craftsmanship to say the least in this aspect. But is my only complaint about the bumper. I would recommend, but with warning about the hitch tube issue, as I will now have to remove the bumper and modify a brand new bumper, in order to fix the issue so it will mount correctly.
i do not see safety chain mounts or d-ring mounts. Can i tow a small motorcycle trailer with this bumper? it is for my 92 jeep wrangler base. Mostly stock with shock upgrades.

Is drilling required for install or is it direct bolt on with no modification needed?
Asked by Neal from Miami, fl on
This Smittybilt Classic Rock Crawler Rear Bumper includes a metal plate for reinforcement. If you are working on a YJ, there is no drilling required. If you are working on a TJ, the reinforcement plate requires drilling. However, the plate is considered to be optional by the vendor. Please see the following link for detailed installation instructions. Thanks! [http://jo.my/installation-pdf]
