New rear bumper

Rockhard rear bumper and tire carrier came in today. Installed it when I got home.

The 15lb plastic stocker...

The 1/4" steel plate beast...

Bumper installed...

Tire carrier installed. About 160lbs of solid steel...serious beef.


Now I just need to mount the Hi-lift and the CB antenna, and a new 3rd brake light.

Nice The RockHard4X4 rear bumper is one of my favorite rear bumpers, very well designed and built.

Nice! I am going to order the RockHard front....but hadn't decided on a rear yet. Looks like my decision is being swayed.

No plans for any of that. Just something else to get peeled off on a tree...or vandalized for gasoline...

Sorry dude, you could be ripped off for gas if you run around on the road with a full jerry can Don't know why you'd be doing that, but without some serious intentional effort on your part there's no way a tree's doing damage to the can carrier. Those are built just as strong as the RockHard bumpers. Had mine on for a year now and they are major handy off road.

BEER Helping me do stupid things to my JK since 2007!

I have no need for the rack. Glad you like yours.

Very Nice, do you get any rattle at all from the tire carrier?

Not sure if you know but rockhard also makes a skid plate for your muffler that bolts to that bumper. I don't think it is on their website but if you call they will tell you the price.

forgot to get a before measurement, but it dropped about 3/4". Same as if you put a trailer on with about 160lbs of tongue weight...
