The Smittybilt XRC Atlas rear bumper has gone through extensive design and testing to meet stringent international pedestrian safety standards. As a result, the bumper is stylishly chiseled as well as being extremely strong and functional.
Matches front bumper as designed, completes front and back appearance. Installation of main bumper was easy, adjustment of tire carrier was not as easy as I thought, it took a few times to get it right. Gerry-Can bases are not given a lot of room from actual bumper. Adjustments are very tight. Swing away tire rack is very much worth it. I can wash the rear window and tailgate much easier. I purchased the storage Cans for tools and winch accessories, works well. Very happy with purchase.
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.
I'm recovering from cancer treatments from 2015 , but I installed the entire bumper by my self in less than two hours with hand tools only. From start to finish was a simple process. It is a bit heavy , but there are a lot of advantage's . Some jeeps may require stiffer springs after a full load of fuel in both cans .
What tire carrier would work with this bumper?

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.

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.
