We have had this bumper for 2 years and we LOVE it! Easy to build and very durable...no rock damage yet LOL. We actually put a similar product to Rhyno line on it as well. I would absolutley recommend this bumper!!.
"This is my second diy bumper from JCR. They are simple and stout and offer you the pride of building it yourself. I also modified mine a little. After testing on a 4 foot Boulder the rear corner hung up, so I removed a pie slice out of the top and bottom and then bent the outer face back to more of a 45 degree angle and welded it back. It gives it a similar look to some of the other JCR bumpers and created less to hang up on rocks. Not a complaint, just another option available with a versatile design. ".
I've had this rear bumper installed for two years now and couldn't be happier with it.
I've had both the rear and front DIY bumpers for a little over 2 years now, and I am totally happy with them. I really enjoyed building them, and have to admit a little bit of pride when anybody asks where I bought them and I explain that they were a "kit" and I assembled them. First thing out of their mouth is always "No way! You bought them somewhere" I changed the trailer hitch on my from the JCR design, though. I don't do any rock crawling, so departure angle doesn't matter for me. I use a locking hitch pin so I wanted easier access than what the original design allows. I just bought a piece of square tubing and welded it in place about even with the shackle mounts, then used a hammer and clamp to weld a piece of flat stock around the end to trim it out. They paid for themselves a few weeks ago when I was rear-ended at a red light by a Toyota. I was the clear winner in that encounter, he only left a paint smudge on my hitch. His car was a different story...
