Quality Product. It looks great. The instructions could be a bit more specific as it left out a few steps. I was able to figure this all out myself but it might pose a problem for somebody with little experience doing something like this. You measure the 31" from the edge of one mount to the edge of the other. The picture points to the backside of the Dring, which isn't correct. You can also measure on your XJ from bolt to bolt and verify the same distance on the new bumper. I think mine was 33" and matched the new bumper. A good idea might be to package together the reinforcement strip and include some hardware. Other than that, I love it.
Very simple to do. Very solid bumper. .
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.
