Rear Bumper Help.

Hey Guys, I love the Poisen Spider BFH setup but im not to sure if I want to cut the frame up just yet. Has anyone ran the Olimpic Rear rock bumper? Does anyone have any other ideas? My Jeep is a light 2 door. I'm looking for just a simple rear bumper. I don't need a tire carrier option although I would like some recovery points. I'm currently running with out the rear plastic bumper cover and love the ground clearance and good departure angles I can achieve. Thanks -Matt

The general consensus here is stay away from olympic product from what I have read.

I might recommend rock krawlers frame cap bumper

Or

Get done evo d link frame caps

If you don't mind losing your hitch then I would just go bfh. I mean its not like you need the extra 4" of frame.

If you don't want to cut the frame, Poison Spyder also has their Rockbrawler reap bumper available without the tire carrier.

PS products are superb but the above comment is unfair - Olympic bumpers are hard to beat from a price-strength perspective. Sure, for more $$$ you'll get more steel and/or more features.

I have Olympic's front rock bumper and it is very stout. I cannot comment on their rear rock bumper, and presume it is similarly built. If you dont need a rear carrier it's a good choice.

If you have a rear hitch then add a D-Ring Shackle (http://www.quadratec.com/products/92144_101.htm) and you'll have a recovery point.

Be honest with yourself. You know you want the BFH. My buddy just went through this line of questioning for the last year. In our research we found these items to consider:
1. Cutting the frame. Not that big of a deal because you can weld it back on (as long as you keep the pieces).
2. If it's the first bumper you like go with it. reason being if you don't it will take FOREVER to decide on another choice and it won't as awesome.
3. If departure angle you desire than stick with it and there aren't IMHO any other bumpers that come close.
4. And final. The price is awesome even with the recent rate increase and very worth it.

No info on olimpic never heard of them.

Thanks for all of the good info guys I really apreciate it! I have allways been a big fan of the PS stuff. I think everyone is right in the fact that if I go with anything else I would just be settling for something. I just wanted to make sure there wasn't some other bumper that I may have been missing. Thanks again!

Yes, it is hard to beat the PSC "BFH" on this one. Like it was said, you can always weld it back on there! So, if that is what you want, go for it!! Let us know if we can help...

The whole Olympic thing is bullshit. If you like their products, but them. As stated above, their shit is thick and strong (how many use 1/4" plate any longer? The crowd and metal is getting thin). As for never hearing of them... this must be your first Jeep, while they might not have a big name in the JK market (read: on these forums), they are huge and have been in business longer than any other 4x4 manufacture that I know of. It all comes down to what you visually like, what will suit your purpose, and what you can afford.

As for the BFH. It is a nice bumper, but if you get one, make sure you fortify it or you will have problems.

Man can't imagine that there is someone out there that doesn't know every 4x4 manufacturer out there. No need to strengthen the BFH it's good to go from PSC.

Wow, go jerk off or something. Just because a guy hasn't heard of a company is no reason to jump in his shit.

Also, Olympic can lick a dick. Search for them on this site, and you'll see why.
