Shrockworks Overview

This company, though small, has withstood the test of time. Patience pays off big time.

I had to disassemble my Shrockworks rear bumper so I can install a set of AEV corners, so I figured while it's back down to the base, I'll post up how the whole thing goes together.

Folks go back and forth about bumpers, price, quality, etc. I know people tend to shy away from Shrockworks cause they hate to hear how long it's going to take (4 months on average) …but at least they're up front and honest about it!!!

IMO, it's 100% worth the wait. The fit is perfect and design is simple and precise. The rear bumper requires NO cutting, and only one hole drilled on the underside of the passenger side frame rail. Everything comes incredibly well packaged and organized …if anything, they sent extra of all needed hardware.

I'll update as I move along and add front bumper/rock slider details as well.


The Base Set-Up:





Proximity to the Tailgate:











The Tire Swing:









Attached to the Frame Rails:







The Latch and Landing Block:











Tire Mount:

e-jeep, Looks great!!! That is some great fit and finish on those. How heavy were they? I am looking at a couple of different ones, but I want to keep weight down.

Not really sure. But, Having installed LoD, Poison Spyder, and AEV bumpers …I'd say it's about in line with Poison Spyder …maybe a little less.

Thanks, I'll keep that in mind. You said the build time is around 4 months right?

You'd have to call them to be sure, but the average is about 4 months. I've placed two orders with them and both came at 4 months on the dot. Typically, they have cargo baskets and jerry can mounts in stock.

I had a set of their sliders on my Nissan Xterra. I picked it up from their shop. I think I waited 8 weeks, which was exactly what I was told. They were flawless.

The wait time is not limited to their Jeep line.

Yeah …all their stuff is "made to order". I have their front stubby and rails on my Jeeps as well. Love them!

No wait time on Yota stuff most of the time.

I picked mine up from their shop before they moved. It's a nice bumper though I have some issues with it, keep in mind I've had it since it came out.

The latch is rusting and besides that you would think they would have come up with a option to tie it into the gate for a single open set up.

The fog lights suck, and you have to drop the bumper to replace the bulbs, then trying to find an upgrade has proved to be a daunting task.

They should have welded in some tubing or patch to be able to run the wires in to protect them and to help hide them.

Also the rubber bumper pad is starting to fall apart and I need to find one.

Needless to say it is nice, it is heavy as hell and the things that I'm listing here for the most part are trivial to most but I wanted to share my experience.

Also the powder company they they used at the time I got mine is the same one that does all of gravediggers powder coating. May have changed by now, I dunno. But it has held up really well.

I like it but may swap to something else in the future for a change.

I have been on the fence with this bumper and the new adventure line from JCR. Like the fact that the swing does not tie into the back door. Opposite of the way everyone is going.

^^^Agreed. I like that it's not tied in.
