JL Rear Bumper - Rimrocker Series with Tire Carrier
Moving to the Colorado/Utah border has adventure calling to us more then ever. This bumper design has been inspired by just that. The name "Rimrocker" comes from the Rimrocker Trail -- an Interstate overland trail that connects the rock crawling of Moab Utah to Montrose Colorado. From hardcore crawling at both ends -- to anything between the two, is what we build these for.
This Slim Fitting 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", 1/4", 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. Additional reinforcements can be found gusseting the inside of this bumper from the wingtip to the frame mounts.
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!
The Rimrocker series JL Rear Bumper features up to 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 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.
