Ask us anything

Q Devon • 04/09/2020, 1:54:24 PM Is there a tow weight rating on the receiver or is it intended for recovery only?
A 04/16/2020, 5:17:11 PM If you plan to tow with this we would suggest adding some reinforcement behind the bumper. Also, we can't really officially rate it since it's a DIY product.
Q Larkin Kelly • 06/21/2020, 4:04:09 PM Do these work with the integrated quarter armor?
A 06/24/2020, 5:25:15 PM They are not designed specifically for the DIY bumpers, but they will often work with modification.

A 03/11/2022, 4:19:23 PM Yes it does.
Q Alex • 12/16/2022, 11:43:14 AM I have this bumper. i am in the process of installing the mounts to the bumper. when i measured, i came up with 30 7/8" between the mounts. instructions say 31" should i try moving the mounts out or will that measurement be okay? if i move them out then they start hitting the side wings and mess the angle up.
A 12/20/2022, 2:16:17 PM 30 7/8 is probably fine, but you can always double-check the mount spacing of your specific XJ to be sure.

DIY XJ rear bumper kit
(Maine) | August 10th, 2022
Bought this DIY kit while building my wife's XJ 6 years ago. This is really a great way to go if you have the tools and the space. Its not for everyone as evidenced by some other reviews, but for half the cost of a ready built bumper and the chance to custom fit it to your Jeep, you absolutely cant beat it. I folded it all up and tacked it together and was amazed at how little adjustment was necessary on the first mock up. Took me a day from opening the box to being prepped for paint and I had to add a little extra material to the tail light fillers but that was because I had a certain way I wanted it to fit up. I shot it with rustoleum metal primer and satin black enamel paint fully expecting to have to repaint it in a year or two. Six years later it still matches the factory applied satin black rocker decals on our 96 Sport. Im back for a front bumper for her XJ and front/rear bumpers for my XJ and MJ. Very satisfied with the JCR line..
Solid build
(San Diego CA) | July 28th, 2021
I rarely review items but this is an exception, I completed this build almost 8 years ago and its still kicking, about a week after welding it up and installing it I was rear ended at a stop light and the other guys car was totaled, and the only damage to the bumper was a minor scratch in the paint.
Good bumper
(Davis CA) | March 23rd, 2021
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.
DIY bumper
(Arkansas) | December 13th, 2020
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.
Quality piece
(Nebraska) | May 11th, 2020
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.
