Full-Width Wrap Around Rear Bumper for JL Jeep Wrangler. Trail-ready, this bumper features heavy-duty steel construction, improved departure angles, built-in recovery points, and optional light provisions.
JL Rear Bumper - Adventure Series
Our Full Width/ Wrap Around JL Rear Bumper is laser cut, CNC formed, fabricated, and hand-welded with pride in the USA. Crafted from a combination of 3/16", 3/8" and 1" thick steel, 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 welded directly to the mounting brackets that attach them to the frame of the Jeep. The bumper can accommodate up to a 38" tailgate-mounted spare tire without raising the spare tire mount. The adventure series JL Rear Bumper features 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. 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 3x3 LED Cube. We recommend and offer the Rigid D-Series Pro Flood Beams. In contrast, if you'd like to run this bumper without lights, we also offer Light Cube Delete Plates.
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.
The JL Rear Bumper is shipped in a bare metal finish. 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.

It’s been almost exactly a year since I installed this bumper on my 2019 JLUR and it’s still one of my all time favorite add ons. I’ve slammed it on rocks and have been recovered and recovered others with the attachment points with out issue. The powder coat still looks new (unlike my stock steel front bumper) and it allowed me to retain my stock tow hitch. Only suggestion I’d make is adding a couple decals to the kit (yeah I’m a sticker guy). Now it’s time to finally replace my stock front steel bumper with a NextVenture one.
