Pretty simple design that was relatively easy to build and install. Sturdy enough to handle a spare tire carrier with a couple reinforcing brackets added between the bumper and the frame. Won't be too stable if you don't tie it into the stock bumper mounts on the bottom of the frame rail, hole is included on the brackets so you can just weld some flat bar to the rail/ bolt to that and still keep the bumper bolt on. Instructions could probably use some editing, repeats on itself a little bit.

Bumper is for a 1992 xj. Very happy with the way it turned out. Worth the money. If you have a welder you should get a bumper. Next DIY bumper will be for the front.

It's a DIY product so I don't really need detailed instructions. Went together fine, super strong. I even added some extra gussets to tow my 16' fishing boat.

Very cool bumper once you get it together, unfortunately thats easier said than done. It comes with no instructions in the box and the “instructions “ on the website are almost a hindrance as they are so poorly thrown together they actually sabotage the construction. The steps arent even in the right order. Also be aware that the plasma cuts that are made leave over 1/4” gap to be filled after folding, which is very difficult to fill with a mig welder. If you have about 10-12 hours on your hands and you dont mind doing a LOT of trouble shooting and back tracking give it a go. It is a good looking bumper certainly, but understand that they want you to buy the pre fab version, what you save in money you will vastly pay for with your time.

The bumper is solid and I can't see this thing ever falling apart. The only downside is that the assembly and installation instructions are almost completely useless. In order to get any idea what I was doing, I had to go to YouTube. Why JCR doesn't provide instructions, I don't know.
