My last rear bumper and tire carrier thread

I am down to 2 choices. NOTE I do not like the tire carrier connected to the door. I want the two part system because I will be putting Jerry Can holders on the side. Also not sold on connecting a 90 pound tire and tire swing to a piece of tin.

So here it goes I do not want any noise from these. NO rattles and great build quality. I believe both companies are good for both. Tell me your horror or long term stories. How do you like yours

ShrockWorks Rear bumper and tire carrier

I don't have experience with either so I can't help with that, but I've heard that there is a long wait time on shrockworks. Not sure if that is a major concern of yours or not.
Good luck in whatever you choose.

I voted Rock Hard. I have been researching this to death for months. Finally settled on the Rock Hard, just waiting on the $. I could list my reasons but you obviously know them since its on your short list.

I voted other. While both of the bumpers you have narrowed it down to are looking to be great I think viewing besttop rear bumper is worthy. I just saw it today on a new jku at a dealership today. It looked great with all bestop product on it. The rear bumper moves when you open your back door. No separate latch. This is an important feature that I originally didn't think I would care for. I have a bumper where I need to unlatch first before opening the rear door. When your hands are full it is a big deal. It just wears on you till you dislike what you have.
