4.0 Beast of a bumper

Only complaint is the difficulty of setup and adjustment. Once it is adjusted properly it works flawlessly. It is a beast. I have a 37" tire mounted on it along with 4 two gallon rotopax cans in the jerry can slots. Also have my high lift on it. I have been running this bumper combo for 2 years and it still works perfect. Latch is perfect, opens and closes as it should. Pretty impressed especially with the weight I have on it. I wheel this rig hard so it does get some abuse. No rattles or issues with the latch. All I have to say to those who have problems with the latch. It takes a lot of time and patience to adjust it properly. It also helps to have an extra set of hands or two to install and adjust it. If you can get it dialed in you will be very happy. I plan on going up to 40" tires this winter and am confident the carrier can handle the added weight with no issues. Now if they would develop something to help lift the large tire on and off the carrier that would be awesome.

3.0 Room for improvement

Bumper went on in 2 hours. The Tire carrier and trailer hitch wiring took longer. NEED TO KNOW NATO CANS DO NOT FIT this rack. A little engineering would have fixed this for the driver side jerry can. Needs to have a hole to run wires for the third brake light. Poorly set up for that and CB coax. STURDY/SOLID! No rattles.Feel very sorry for anyone that runs into this bumper.

3.0 Not a lot of engineering

Installation was about 5 hours. No way to cleanly wire the third brake light. The tire carrier will NOT accept NATO can on the driver side. No rattles and definitely sturdy. A location for a CB antenna would have been nice also.

3.0 Great Bumper, A Pain To Install

good sturdy bumper. Bad instructions and photos. Wasted more time trying to understand the instructions than actually installing everything. the outer holes on driver & passenger side didn't match up with the frame. will have to find an alternate way to secure those spots. the wheel mount studs for the tire carrier should already be mounted onto the adjustable wheel mount plate. I couldn't get them in all of the way, so now I have to find someone with a press to finish the job. Not sure if the money is worth all of these issues. We shall see.

5.0 Heavy Duty

I really liked the looks of this bumper. Having read the reviews I knew it was going to heavy (over 200 lbs) but I wouldn't want anything less to hold my spare, gas cans and Hi-Lift jack. Be prepared to spend a couple of hours with a friend (see heavy) to install this bumper. I didn't have any issues with the packaging or delivery and the powder coat and welds all look to be a good quality. The mounting holes and brackets all lined up with no problems. Every piece of hardware was included in the package. There were no issues installing the tire carrier to the bumper either. Being able to hook so much stuff to this bumper and not having to have in the Jeep with me is what sold me. A 37" spare, 10 gallons of gas, my ever trusty high-lift jack and a class III tow hitch. It looks really good and I haven't had any problems or rattles to speak of after 2 months. Couple of things I would say are : Get a drop hitch a 37" tire takes up a lot of space. When you adjust the latch do it with full fuel cans. Overall I am very pleased with the quality and fitment of this bumper and would recommend it to anyone looking to upgrade the rear bumper.

4.0 Nice bumper with plenty of features

Like most Smittybilt items, it's very solidly built, but needs some tweaking to get it in place. The bumper comes in two boxes on a pallet. One contains the bumper and it related hardware. The second contains the carrier. The instructions pictures are black & white and sometime difficult to see what they are trying to show you. But the instructions reference hardware that is part marked on individual bags. The bumper took a little wiggling, but went together easily enough. The carrier was almost as easy. Some things that were out of spec and required reworking: Lock pin is too short and required a washer between it and the bumper, the cam that adjust the closing, the holes did not match up the ones on the bumper and required enlarging, and the hitch pin hole required enlarging because of the paint. Other than that, I didn't have any other issues installing. It closes easily and does not rattle. When ordering this, call and find out if it is in stock. It took 8 weeks for this to arrive.

Question & Answers

8 Answered questions

I have a 2014 JK, I had the XRC rear bumper installed by a local shop. I'm having a rattle problem while driving down the road and the arm where it pivots on the bumper has a lot of play in it. Could this be a defect or an installation problem?

Asked by RB JEEPER from Vacaville, CA on

Hey RB JEEPER, the Smittybilt XRC Atlas Rear Bumper and Tire Carrier requires shims on the pivot. Sounds to me like it may need more shims added in to eliminate the rattle. Thanks for your question.

Answered by Devin B. ext 4835 from Vacaville, CA on

I just purchased a jeep with the Smittybilt Atlas on the back, and for some reason I cannot get it to swing open. Is there a pin that needs to be pulled or something I cannot find, or are you just supposed to pull the silver handle?

Asked by bhulse76 from Ogden, UT on

Hey Bhulse76, the Smittybilt XRC Atlas Rear Bumper and Tire Carrier has a black paddle handle on the drivers side of the bumper that you pull to open it. Sometimes you need to push up on the tire carrier to get the handle to open. Thanks for your question.

Answered by Devin B. ext 4835 from Ogden, UT on

Will this bumper and tire carrier work with my Jeep? I drive a 2014 Wrangler Unlimited Sport. It has the AEV 4.5" Lift with 35" tires as well as the AEV High Tuck exhaust heading out the drivers side rear.

Asked by Ryan from Jackson, WY on

Hi Ryan Yes the XRC Atlas Rear Bumper and Tire Carrier will work fine on your Jeep. Thanks
