OrFab rear tube bumper pics?

Anyone running this bumper? Please post pics. Not many on the web other than this stock pic. And your thoughts on textured vs. gloss finish.

I kinda like it. I'm curious as well.



This might sound wired. Does that mean u should a similar tube style front bumper to make it match?

Doesn't really need to match since you don't really see the front and rear bumper at the same time. I have the ACE stubby front. But I do have ACE rails and Tube doors so there is enough tubing to keep it all tied in.

I like tge BFH but don't want to cut the frame. Plus it's bare steel, so for the price if found the OrFab for it wouldn't be any cheaper.

ORFab isnt too far from the Phoenix area and I've yet to see one of these on a Jeep.

Lot's of ORF tire carriers, but no one runs their bumpers.

Why do you suppose this is?
They seem like nice bumpers. I like the tube style because it looks less bulky and would seem lighter.

Sweet job on the tire carrier. Any regrets with the bumper? Will it take a hit on the corners pretty well?

Thanks man. Only regret I had with the bumper was getting it with the gloss black powerdercoat, definitely get the textured black if you order it. As you can see mine has been stripped an repainted w/ some matte black rustoleum.

It will definitely take a hit and just shrug is off. It's a very stout bumper. I dropped the back end of my rig about 3.5 feet into a hole straight into a rock onto the right corner of the bumper, that gouged the tube a little but that was it. I have put this bumper through it's paces and it doesn't dissappoint.

I particularly like how it wraps around the corners of the tub, has kept rocks and trees from chewing up my sheetmetal on a number of occasions.

Please do. Try to show the gap from the top on the corners or a top view. Thanks.
