The RockBrawler Rear Bumper's high clearance, multi-faceted design provides the best possible departure angles and corner obstacle clearance. Its appearance is streamlined and sexy, not like the squarish, boxy shape of many other bumpers on the market. The RockBrawler is constructed of CNC laser cut, brake-formed 3/16" plate steel. The RockBrawler Rear Bumper can be mounted without cutting or altering the Jeep's frame rails.
Integrated Spare Tire Carrier
The RockBrawler spare tire carrier is built from the highest quality components. The main structure of the tire carrier is fabricated from NC-bent DOM tubing and laser-cut, precision brake-formed plate steel. The extreme duty hinge assembly includes a CNC machined spindle and housing, with a pair of Timken tapered roller bearings for smooth operation under the heaviest loads. The latch is a high quality automotive grade mechanism, concealed in a fabricated housing. There is a spring-loaded pin-lock with stainless steel slider plate that locks the tire carrier into the open position to keep it from swinging around while accessing the Jeep's tailgate. The latch and pin lock are both easily disengaged with a simple pull of a knob. The tire mount is adjustable up and down, as well as in and out, to accomodate a wide variety of tire sizes up to 40". The adjustability allows the tire to be mounted as low as possible for any tire size, to keep a low center of gravity. The included license plate mount places the license plate at the center of the spare tire.
A custom Hi-Lift Jack Mount, available separately, is CNC laster cut and bolts to the top of the tire carrier. Also available separately is our LED License Plate & Third Brake Light with 6' Extension, to properly illuminate your relocated license plate.
High Clearance Receiver Hitch
The RockBrawler Rear Bumper features an integrated receiver hitch. The hitch is tucked high up into the bumper to provide better obstacle clearance and departure angle than OE or aftermarket hitches. IMPORTANT: The integrated hitch receiver is not rated for towing. It is intended as a recovery attachment point only.
Recovery Shackle Tabs
The optional Heavy Duty Recovery Shackle Tabs are CNC machined from 1" thick steel billet, specifically designed to accept our heavy duty 3/4" Recovery Shackles. These tabs are designed to match the high clearance aspects of the rest of the bumper and minimized hang-ups. Selecting this option will get you a pair of these tabs, expertly welded to the RockBrawler Rear Bumper.
The universal mounting system for the RockBrawler rear bumper comes with grad 8 mounting hardware already in place for installation on to either TJ/LJ, YJ, or CJ. Simply pop out the bolts that will be unused for your application, and bolt it on!
