JK Rear Bumper - Featherweight Series
Looking for our Rimrocker Series styling in a lightweight bout stout package? We have modified our Rimrocker Series bumpers, by changing out nearly every component for a slightly thicker, however lighter weight aluminum component. Let us introduce our Featherweight Series!
This Slim Fitting Full Width/ Wrap Around JK Rear Bumper is laser cut, CNC formed, fabricated, and hand TIG welded with pride in the USA. Crafted from a combination of 1/4" and 3/8" Aluminum, and 1" thick steel recovery points, this rear bumper is both lightweight and stout-where-it-counts so that you can hit the hardcore trails with confidence!
The machined 1" thick recovery tabs extend inside the bumper; they are bolted through the mounting brackets that attach the bumper to the frame of the Jeep.
The Featherweight series JK Rear Bumper features up to 6 mounting points on the sides and bottom of the frame rails, which prevents unwanted rotation of the bumper into the body tub if you take a real hit on the trail. Our design also accommodates the factory hitch receiver, so you maintain your OE rating while towing. Finally, the JK Rear Bumper also features optional light provisions designed for Baja Designs S2 flush mount lights. Also included is an aluminum backing plate behind our logo cutout.
Question: What does this bumper weight?
Answer: 38 lbs
Can I order this bumper Powder Coated?
Yes, however, the lead time can vary greatly depending on the choice of powder coat and other things in the queue. Please call us if you would like to order this bumper powder coated.
This bumper is shipped in a bare metal finish unless ordered otherwise. Bare metal products may have scratches or surface imperfections as a result of raw material handling, manufacturing, and fabrication. However, these imperfections are easily covered up with a textured powder coat finish. Additional finishing, sanding, and prep work may be required if you wish to also have them finished with a smooth powder coat or paint.
Great quality easy install. Highly recommend
This bumper saves a whole lot of weight on my JKU. The featherweight bumper is light enough to be picked up with one hand but is built to take a heavy beating on the trails. The welds are top notch and the shackle mounts are through mounted to the inside of the frame rails for a heavy duty recovery point. Im extremely happy that I went with the next venture bumper, and will be upgrading my front bumper next! I can’t wait to take this thing out on the trails.
After saving a bunch of weight on my JKU with the Next venture Motorsports featherweight series rear bumper. I noticed how much better the Jeep looks! The minimalistic lines of the design and the artistic look of the welds gives the rig a much cleaner look. The easy installation made me really happy for choosing the Next Venture bumpers.
Why next venture?
parts inspired by the trail
Our team got into the game after rock crawling, wrenching, fabricating and being inspired to design and build parts for what we love to do: hit the trail.
what our customers are saying
They invited me and my whole crew in for a tour of the facility on our way to Moab. These guys not only produce amazing armor for your Jeep, they are really good people. So, I’ve been running their rear diff skid for 9 months and it has easily held up to everything I’ve thrown at it.Gary Swogger
After this go around with Moab and Holy cross, the diff skids did their job and protected my Jeep. My rear aluminum bumper performed phenomenally on the trail!Rennato Lopez

Can’t say enough about Dan and his ultra skilled team! Dan was able to get us in for a skidplate with UHMW & sliders for our JKUR. The fit, finish and quality are just out of this world! Can you say “stacked dimes”? Absolutely gorgeous welds…Lance Wende
2 years later I'm writing this review. I've beaten the crap out of this thing hitting rocks, winching, draging it down obstacles, and now exposed to the Florida elements. The bumper looks like it did the day they sent it. You will not find a better company to work with that cares about their clients and their products!Kelly Colwell

My rear Next Venture diff skid takes a beating! Best rear diff skid available. Well done!Lee Bower
Quality is amazing, items fit perfectly. Couldn't be more happy; these are gonna help out a lot between the tons and LS1.Lakeland, FL
Without a doubt, Next Venture Motorsports is my first stop for epic Jeep parts. Their JL aluminum front and rear featherweight bumpers are solidly built, easy enough to install, and crafted to perfection. I can't wait for more products for my 2 door JL!Michael Collette
AWESOME quality and customer service. 2021 Jeep 4xe! Return customer and will return again. Thank You Dan!Columbia, SC
I like it because it lets you use factory fog lights if you want. They also have a featherweight aluminum option that doesn't have holes for fogs and is essentially a stubby bumper. I am very pleased with all of their stuff. [JL/JT Adventure Series Bumper]Author's name
