JL Rear Bumper - Rimrocker Series
The Rimrocker Series Jeep JL Wrangler Rear Bumper design was inspired by our move to the Colorado/Utah border, with adventure calling more than ever. The name "Rimrocker" comes from the Rimrocker Trail -- an Interstate overland trail that connects the rock crawling of Moab, Utah to Montrose, Colorado. We've built the Rimrocker series to meet the challenges of the hardcore crawling on the trail, and any obstacles you may meet along the way.
Slim Fitting, Full Width, High Clearance, Wrap-Around JL Rear Bumper crafted from a combination of 3/16", 1/4", 3/8", and 1" thick steel. This JL 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 welded directly to the mounting brackets that attach them to the frame of the Jeep. Additional reinforcements can be found gusseting the inside of this bumper from the wingtip to the frame mounts.
- Eight 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
- This bumper accommodates the factory hitch receiver, so you maintain your OE rating while towing
- Improved departure angles
- Built-in recovery points
- An aluminum backing plate that locates behind our logo cutout (shown here with orange vinyl on it in some demo photos.)
- Optional light provisions, designed for a Baja Designs S2 Flush Mount Lights
Heavy-duty steel construction
Weight: 61 lbs
The bumper can accommodate up to a 38" tailgate-mounted spare tire without raising the spare tire mount. The spare tire recess also doubles as a step at the rear of the Jeep -- with dimple died holes to give your boots some grip!
We highly recommend relocating the license plate from the bumper -- if you're out there on the trail, it's bound to be pulled off by rocks. For this modification check out our License Plate Relocation Brackets.
Products are designed and fabricated to fit vehicles that have varying tolerances from the factory, minor hand fitting may be required.
Products are shipped bare metal unless otherwise specified by the customer. 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.
Projected lead times are estimates only, and are subject to changes due to production realities, including material and labor availability and sudden variability in order volume. Lead times are not guaranteed, but we do guarantee that we are hard at work trying to get the best product we can produce and into our customers’ hands as quickly as possible.
All Next Venture Motorsports products are laser cut, CNC formed, and hand-weld with pride in the USA. We are a Colorado-based business, and welcome visitors by appointment at our Grand Junction, CO headquarters. We hope to see you out there on the trail soon!
Awesome high clearance and heavy duty bumper! Finally ditched my stock one and ready to beat this one up on the trails. It is very well made and looks to be very strong. Looks pretty rad too! The first of many Next Venture parts I’ll be adding to my JL :)
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.
