JL Rear Bumper - Featherweight Series

Looking for our Rimrocker Series styling in a light weight 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 JL 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 bumper can accommodate up to a 38" tailgate-mounted spare tire without raising the spare tire mount (and a 40" tire if you do want to raise up the spare). 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!

The Featherweight series JL Rear Bumper features up to 10 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 JL Rear Bumper also features optional light provisions designed for a Baja Designs S2 flush mount lights. Also included is an aluminum backing plate that locates behind our logo cutout (shown here with orange vinyl on it in some demo photos.)

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.

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.
