Review & Install Video

I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com. This is my review of the Barricade classic rear bumper with tire carrier fitting all 1987 to 2006 Wranglers. When you're putting large tires on your Jeep and have a matching large spare, the additional size and weight of the spare tire can cause some issues with your factory spare tire mount. You can end up breaking the spare tire mount, wearing out the hinges on your tailgate, and that's if you can even get the tailgate closed with the big spare tire on it because of the proximity of the tire to the rear bumper. Now there are a couple of different ways that you can solve this problem. One is a tub mounted spare tire carrier that will redistribute the weight of your larger spare and give you plenty of clearance with your factory bumper. The other option is to go with a setup like this which is a bumper that's designed to be used in conjunction with a bumper mounted tire carrier. This setup in particular gives you a lot of features for a little bit of money, and in my opinion, it looks really good on the back of any YJ or TJ. This bumper is built from three-sixteenths inch steel which means it's going to be really strong but also keep the weight down a little bit. The whole bumper and carrier is covered in a textured black powder coat finish that will resist rust and corrosion as well as match a lot of the other black plastic accents on your Jeep. In my opinion, it looks pretty good. The bumper has a built in 2 inch receiver that can be used as an additional recovery point. But the bumper also has two D-ring mounts that are welded all the way through and includes the D-rings right in the box. The handle for the tire carrier has a rubber isolator on it to keep the tire carrier from rattling. The tire mount itself on the carrier is adjustable. Now unfortunately, this is only adjustable in and out which allows you to adjust for different tire widths and different back spacing on your spare tire. It's not adjustable up and down. So like I said before, this works with the 37 inch tire, but if you're only mounting a 33 on there it may look like it's mounted a little bit high. The other thing to consider when installing a product like this is that you will have to come up with another solution for your factory third brake light. Getting this bumper and tire carrier installed on your Jeep is a pretty simple process. There's a little bit of assembly that you will have to do right out of the box. You're going to attach the tire mount itself onto the tire carrier and attach the handle onto the tire carrier. Once that's done, you can move on to removing your factory rear bumper. In order to do that, there are a couple of Torx bolts that you have to remove from the plastic bumper ends. That will gain you access to the four bolts holding your factory bumper onto the rear cross member. Once those four bolts are removed, there are just two additional bolts holding your factory bumper onto the frame rails. Once those are removed, the entire bumper will come right off. Your new bumper will mount in much the same way using the included hardware. Once the bumper's in place then you can drop the tire carrier right onto the hinge. This is an area where you're going to want to pay careful attention. There is no grease fitting on this hinge, so you're going to want to apply a liberal amount of grease to the hinge before you put the tire carrier in its place. As a regular maintenance item, you'll want to remove the tire carrier and continue to grease the spindle. If not, you can get a build up of rust and the tire carrier can become very difficult to open and close. After you get everything installed, you want to make the adjustment for your width of your spare tire and the back spacing of your tire. In order to do that, you'll loosen the two bolts that are holding the adjustment on the tire mount. You'll pull the tire mount out a good ways and then remove the lug nuts off of it. From there, you can install your spare tire and push it tight up against the tire carrier. You want to make sure that it's nice and tight to keep the tire from rattling. From there, you'll remove the spare tire, push this plate in just an eighth of an inch further and then tighten up the adjustment bolts. That way when you reinstall the spare tire for the final time and tighten down these three lug nuts the tire's going to be pressed really firmly up against the tire carrier. All in all, the whole installation shouldn't take you more than about two hours. You won't need any specialty tools, but a good socket set and a good set of Torx bits will definitely come in handy. I think you get a lot of bang for your buck with this product. You get a tire carrier that's going to move your big heavy spare off of your factory mount which will save your tailgate, and it includes a couple of recovery points as well. The bumper is well built and it looks good, and it's less expensive than a lot of other ones on the market. Now I would like if this had some additional adjustability built into it.so, again, if you're running a smaller spare, you can lower it down a little bit giving you more visibility out the back window. And I would like if there was a grease fitting built into the spindle. So if you're putting large tires on your Jeep and you want a spare to match but you can't put that large heavy spare on the factory mount because, one, it won't fit or, two, you don't want to put all that weight on your tailgate, you have a couple of options to choose from. In my opinion, if you like having a bumper that has a tire carrier mounted right on it, this is a really nice way to go. It's a clean setup, it's built really well, and it'll save you some money over some of the other options on the market. So that's my review of the Barricade classic rear bumper with tire carrier fitting all 1987 to 2006 Wranglers that you can find right here at ExtremeTerrain.com.

There are 2 extra holes on each side of the bumper mounting plates. You provided 8 bolts but there are only 4 stock holes (not counting the 2 underneath ones). Are we supposed to drill holes in the frame for extra strength mounting to the back frame ?

  • The Barricade Classic Rear Bumper does not require any drilling, and will use only the same mounting points and bolt holes as the OEM bumper.

JamieS

  • No, in order to get this Barricade Classic Rear Bumper w/ Tire Carrier for the TJ's to hold a JK wheel, you would need a 5x4.5 to a 5x5 wheel adapter. In order to convert mount to a 5x5 bolt pattern.

It was stated earlier to DennisB that the receiver is not tow rated and is used for recovery only. Shoudn't it have a tow rating of at least 3k lbs in order to recover my 3k lb jeep out of a bad spot ? I don't intend to pull heavy loads ( got a hemi in the driveway for that ), a small trailer with my 4 wheeler.

MichaelP

  • The Barricade Classic Rear Bumper has a receiver to install accessories, and tow recovery points, but is not rated for sustained towing, and does not have mounting points for safety chains, making this not legal for towing in most states.

    Friendly criticism

    Great looking bumper and well made minus a few things I personally incountered.. my 4/5 issues are as followed. 1. The rubber vibration pad on the left side of the carrier next to handle, always hits the bumper which prevents a smooth motion towards the locking block. 2. The bottom support tabs have at least a 3/4 inch gap to the bolt hole. Also haven't figured out how to prevent the bumper sliding as the tap has a 1-1.5 inch channel for a bolt to be inserted. 3. The pivot point or hinge pin for the carrier seized on me even with grease/lubricant applied. ( highly recommend this part be pre joined and have a grease tab and maybe have bearings) also when trying to remove the carrier from the pin, it was literally impossible and still attached, even tried a 3 ton floor jack to raise it off the pin and all it did was lift the rear end. 4. All the supplies bolts are to short and don't reach the nylon thread on the locking nuts. Also there were no bolts for the bottom support tabs. I would also consider re enforcing those support tabs as the control sway or rocking of the bumper when any force is applied up or down. Minus all these finds, I really liked the look and fit of the bumper. I think these issues are simple fixes and would increase the quality and performance of the bumper in all aspects. Mike c

    Excellent bumper/tire carrier combination!

    I installed this bumper/tire carrier on my 05 TJ. Very solid bumper and tire carrier. It bolted right in place with no modifications necessary. One person can install this bumper but it's a lot easier with two. The hardest part was removing the factory bolts attaching the original bumper to the frame (be sure to pre-soak with PB Blaster/WD40/Liquid Wrench). Both bumper and tire carrier are heavy duty and a great value for the money. I'm so glad I didn't spend $1,000+ for another product. I have recommended this product to several friends already.

    Money well spent

    Awsome bumper an tire carrier. Great price. Installation was easy, took about an afternoon,counting removing old bumper. Only had one issue with the lower strap braces, holes did not line up, more than half hole off. Had to drill out to fit. My TJ has the tag mounting issue,cheap fix is to cut a notch in the tag and plastic mount. I cut just enough to clear the latch. All works great and looks great.

    Bang for the buck it hits the mark. It looks great and functions flawlessly. You have to lower the gas tank but not remove it, a task that's definitely manageable. The only recommendation is to replace the hardened steel bolts with grade 8 bolts which are much stronger, A $20 dollar investment , is worth the piece of mind !!! Otherwise great product !!

    Big and Beefy!

    I recently up-sized to 35 inch tires and needed to add a tire carrier. I really like that this bumper and carrier combo has a handle. It makes it very convenient to open and close. With the tire, bumper and carrier it all weighs around 200 pounds. It took me 3 hours to install with the help of my great wife. I also have the Barricade roof rack so it took me a little longer to go buy some longer hardware to go through both and mount to the frame. This bumper is on tight and would take some serious work to get off again. Overall it is quiet and doesn't rattle, really well built and looks great. I would highly recommend purchasing this bumper and carrier. Also I ordered it on Monday and it arrived on Wednesday. You can't beat that! I was also supposed to receive a garage banner from Extreme Terrain but I never got that yet, so hopefully someone at ET will throw one in the mail. Great Company, Fast Shipping, Great Product!

    Really like this Bumper

    I bought this bumper to get the 35" spare off the tailgate of my YJ. It was just too heavy. The bumper was well made, looks great and works well. Fit was very good - no drilling or adjustments needed as some reviews mentioned. No instructions were included but it was a pretty easy install once the old bumper/hardware was removed. If you want to keep your 3rd brake light, you will need to get the add-on accessory or come up with a way to modify your stock one.

    Best Bang for Your Buck

    I bought this tire carrier to be able to carry a full size spare. I was skeptical with it being cheaper than some of the other name brand carriers but it was a wise investment. No instructions came with it but the installation was still pretty straight forward. Can't wait to see what my 37'' tire looks like mounted up on this tire carrier.

    Excellent Bumper; Pain to Mount

    This was a major step up from the factory bumper (basically a bar). We ordered this to also mount the oversized rear tire which was slowly pulling the rear gate off. I read a review that the removal of the rear bumper was harder than the installation of the new bumper; not so. I don't know why I never saw it mentioned, but the gas tank hangs down and prohibits access to the inner mounting holes on the driver's side (maybe the 4cyl engine determines the size and placement of the gas tank). Maybe everybody else figured a way around this, but I had to guide the bolts in (minus the inner washers) in with my pinkies through the very tight space and then hold it with long nose pliers until I got the nut on it. Also, the rear tabs that wrap under and attach to the frame for stability had to be reused and one was so rusted it snapped the head off, necessitating a new hole to be drilled and nut and bolt installed. Then again, we're Jeep people and have to be creative at times. Overall, I'm pleased with the bumper; even more so when I conquered the few difficulties to get it mounted. There were no instructions, only two pictures of it spaced out and then put together. Pretty basic installation and the nuts are all nyloc nuts (good quality).

    Barricade classic bumper with tire carrier

    Everything in the box was as described and had a great look and finish. It really looks good on my 2002 TJ. The only complaint I have is the tire carrier doesn't adjust enough so that my 12.5" wide tire is pushed against the back post for support. The tire is only supported by the rim and three lug nuts. It would of been nice to be able to make contact with the rubber on the supports to stop the tire from bouncing.
