Rear Bumper to Frame Tie In's for 1997-2006 TJ and 2004-2006 LJ (TJ Unlimited)
Our Frame Tie In Kit will strengthen the mounting of your TJ/LJ rear bumper - perfect for those heavier bumpers with swingouts, or using recovery points on the bumper.
- Laser cut from 1/4" steel and CNC formed for a perfect fit everytime!
- Fully welded gusset
- Tie's bumper into frame rather then relying solely on the stock rear cross member
- Utilizes outer bumper bolts (2 per side - the existing bumper bolts) and up to 3 bolts per side on the frame. (optional 3rd hole requires drilling)
- Made in the USA!
- SOLD AS PAIR Left/Right; includes hardware (6 bolts, 6 washers) and a pair of frame nut-inserts.
These are shipped bare and include hardware for frame mounting. Bumper mounting hardware is already included with our TJ/LJ Rear Bumpers (sold separately)
Well made, heavy duty. I like the 3rd bolt option. Tip: Run a tap through the nuts before installation - I had a bit of a problem with one of them wanting to cross thread due to heat distortion from the weldment. Another tip: Don't try to insert the nut inserts through the hole in the bottom rear of the frame, put it in through the oblong side hole further forward - IN the correct orientation. It will probably slide right down to where you can manipulate it through the afore mentioned bottom hole. If it doesn't, drive the Jeep on a bumpy road, it'll slide down!
These are pure beef! The install was simple with the supplied hardware. Fit perfectly, couldn't be happier.
