The Smittybilt Classic SRV Rear Bumper is as tough as it is practical, as is seen in the 1/4 inch steel plate design, intuitive mounting system to carry an oversized spare tire. The SRC Classic rear bumper is powder coated in our signature textured finish.
Looks decent, price is cheap, but you get what you pay for. The grease fitting lasted one day, it rattles like crazy going down the road, and the slide in hitch receiver is loose as a goose. I thought it was my slide in, but everyone's I have tried fits the same. I guess I'll have to make some shims...
Install was pretty straightforward. Inside bolt holes did need to be redrilled due to a slight misalignment, but not bad. Gas tank does have to be dropped to get the inside holes started. If running 32x11.50 tires, you will need to purchase an adapter plate for the spare the raises it up and out. The bumper is about 3/4" higher than stock and interferes with the 32's, not allowing you to shut the tailgate.
Bumper was well built but lacked details. Would have preferred a smooth finish as opposed to the crackle look. Hard to clean. Latch rattled inside housing. Removed latch and covered with heat shrink, greased and replaced. Solved rattle. Tire still shakes going down the road rubber block provided did not reach any part of tailgate. Tire blocks view out of inside mirror and sits a lot higher than stock mount. Wish I had read reviews first would not have bought.
is the receiver rated for towing?

can you haul a medium sized trailer with this bumper? or can you haul anything at all? i assume that is what the hitch is for
Asked by Mark from Ky on
Hello, With the Src Rock Crawler rear bumper it is a class iii hitch. So yes a medium sized trailer wouldn't hurt the bumper, however I would watch how much you haul with the stock springs and shocks so you don't have any issues. If you have anymore questions feel free to ask, Thank you.
