I purchased this and the front bumper at the same time. I 'm a little more impressed with the front bumper than the rear. I ordered the nut strips but did not use them because I did not want to remove my factory hitch, so I tied in the bumper to the factory hitch for more strength. I also fabricated a tire carrier for the bumper. Overall I was so pleased with both bumpers that I ordered the side armor with the tail light cutouts.
Easy to assemble and weld. Used this DIY bumper as my sons first welding project. Looks great after using up 3 grinding wheels.
Fantastic deal on a DIY bumper. Very well thought out and easy to assemble. The greatest thing about these bumpers is it leaves it open to modification. I took mine and added a spare mount swing arm. The only reason I gave it a four instead of five is I would have liked to see the D-Ring mount come into the back side of the bumper deeper so you can run a weld line to the side of the bumper mount. A weld has much greater shear strength than tensile strength. Although I still feel confident in it holding I would prefer it be over engineered. All in all a great bumper and I will probably be buying the front one sometime in 2016.
Great for the DIY jeeper offers great protection as well as awesome looks with some hard work you can have a great bumper for half the price easy to follow instructions to guide you step by step product comes cnc cut to perfection ready to form and weld when finished bumper is strong enough to pull your stuck friends out or pull a trailer with the same strength as a hitch receiver highly recommended and cannot beat the price.
The instructions alone make this DIY kit awesome! Looks Great, works great! Easily modded to fit your jeep. With the added hitch receiver and the tie-ins added, we have no problem towing our Jeep trailer, even fully loaded with camping gear. Best. Bumper. Ever!
