Hi, I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com and this is my review of the Barricade Rear Tubular Bumper fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs. This bumper is available in the textured black powder coating that you see here and it's also available in a polished stainless version. You can also get this bumper with straight ends or with wrap around ends as well. This bumper is for those of you who like that old-school tubular bumper look and maybe you have a front tubular rear bumper and you want the rear to match. Or this could be run as just a standalone tubular bumper as well. This is not a bumper that's going to provide a ton of protection or a ton of features like some of the more heavy duty off road plate steel bumpers, but they're also less expensive. So if you like the look and you don't have the need for those features and benefits of a heavy duty bumper, this is a nice option.This bumper is built from three-inch tubular stainless steel and it's offered in two different finishes. The textured black powder coat that you see here and also a polished stainless finish. So no matter what look you're going for on your Jeep you have an option. The textured black powder coat is going to help to resist rust and corrosion but even if you do get a scratch in that finish, the stainless steel won't rust like a mild steel bumper would. Part of the design is this cut out of the upper tube which gives you additional clearance for running a large spare tire so that as you open and close the tailgate the tire isn't going to contact the bumper. This is the straight version of this bumper but there's also one with wrap around corners. The one with the wrap around corners will provide some additional protection for the corners of the tub of your Jeep. However, it will decrease a little bit of clearance, so if you're somebody who's running a large tire that has a lot of uptravel, you might want to go with the straight version to avoid any clearance issues. This bumper is designed to be completely bolt on so the installation is really straightforward. The first step is to remove your factory rear bumper. You'll do that by removing the two bolts that connect it to the rear cross-member and the total of four bolts that hold it onto the frame rails. Once the factory bumper is gone, you can remove the factory tow hook and then get to installing your new bumper. The first step is to install the brackets that are included in the kit. There are two nut plates that go inside the frame and two sandwich plates that go on the outside. Once those brackets are in place you can bolt the new bumper in place. There is some up down adjustability with this bumper so you'll be able to get it nice and level and make sure that you have plenty of clearance between the bumper and the bottom of your tailgate. The whole installation process shouldn't take you more than two hours and you can definitely do it with traditional hand tools. However, if you have access to air tools, it will speed up the process. This bumper is pretty lightweight but it is a little bit large, so having an extra set of hands around during the installation will make things a little bit easier. However, if you can't get a friend to come over while you're installing this, you can use a floor jack or some tall jack stands. I think this bumper is really appropriately priced for what it is. As I said before, it's not going to offer a ton of protection, it doesn't have a lot of features like one of those more heavy duty off road bumpers does. However, it's also priced a lot lower than those. And if we're judging this strictly off of build quality, I would say it's definitely there. The welds look good, the finish is really nice, and this fits well. So if you like the look of a tubular bumper and maybe you're looking to match a front tubular bumper that you already have installed, this is a nice option that is less expensive than some others, looks good, and fits well, which is a really nice option as long as you don't have the need for the additional features offered from an off road bumper. So that's my review of the Barricade Rear Tubular Bumper fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs that you can find right here at ExremeTerrain.com.

Looks great and easy to install!
I love this bumper. It was a cinch to install and I think it looks great and reminds me of the old YJ I used to have with tube bumpers. The only reason I gave it 4stars for appearance is because replacing the factory bumper with this one exposes the "unfinished" body and frame at the back of the Jeep. It doesn't bother me, but might bother some. If you are looking for tube bumper for the back of your rig, this is a great option.Helpful (1)

Easy install multipurpose bumper
It’s tubular bars allow for easy recovery strap attachment. I’ve used it to pull a few friends out of mud as well. It’s easy install was within and hour, I advise having a friend to help hold it in place while you secure it. Great looking quick shipping.Helpful (1)

like the design.
Bought these and received them in good timing. They are strong and I liked the look of the ends of the tubes being rounded off. Only issue was they don't have front bumpers that have the same ends.Helpful (1)

Had to get a new rear bumper due to roof rack. New bumper matches great and is easy to put on. Instructions help know how to put on. All ready had factory bumper off took about 30 min to install new. Thanks JohnHelpful (7)
A.) When will this be back in stock? B.) I already have a hitch on my jeep, I'm looking to replace the stock bumper currently on it with this bumper. Will it work if I already have a hitch?
The Barricade Rear Tubular Bumper - Textured Black (07-17 Wrangler JK) will be back in stock in 5-6 weeks. This bumper will work with a stock hitch on the Jeep Wrangler.
Has anyone had any issues with rust with this bumper as I am replacing a Barricade rear bumper due to massive rust showing up after less than a year. No issues with the front or the fender flares. I just don’t want to get stuck replacing another in a year
We have not had many complaints about rust on these bumpers. You can see the review rating is 4.6.
A few of the answers state that you can use this bumper with an existing hitch, one of the answers says that you have to remove it. Which is the right answer. Currently have a bolt on 2" receiver. Will this bumper work with the current hitch that I have?
The Barricade Rear Tubular Bumper will be compatible with the OEM hitches, as shown in our customer photos!
The Q A about the use of OEM hitch and reviews do not agree. Do you need to remove the OEM hitch? Thank You Nathan L
Thank you for your question! This will work in conjunction with the OEM hitch.
Can you install the Rugged Ridge 2" receiver hitch kit with this bumper?
There shouldn't be any clearance issues with installing a receiver hitch in conjunction with the Barricade Rear Tubular Bumper.
