I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com, and this is my review of the Barricade Extreme HD Rear Bumper fitting all 2007-2016 JK's. There's also a tire carrier available to go with this bumper and there's a kit that includes both pieces. You should be taking a look at this bumper if you want to replace the plastic factory rear bumper on your Jeep in favor of this much stronger steel bumper. I really like this bumper in particular because it has the opportunity to add a tire carrier on at a later date. So, whether you don't need a tire carrier now but you might down the line, or you just want to split up the expense a little bit, this is a really nice option.When comparing this bumper to other rear bumpers on the market, aside from the ability to add a tire carrier down the line, I really like this bumper because of the looks. This is a plate steel bumper, but it shares a lot of styling cues with the stamp steel bumper like this rounded edges and different angles. It really sets it apart from a lot of the other bumpers on the market, and Barricade's able to offer all of this at an affordable price. When it comes to construction this bumper is really heavy duty. It is made of 3/16 plate steel which is finished off with a textured black powder coated finish for both corrosion and rust resistance. And while it has some visual appeal with these curved edges and rounded angles, it also offers a ton of function. This bumper will give you three different recovery points, two D-ring mounts, and the center receiver. Something that is really nice about this kit is that it includes two 3/4 inch D-rings right in the box. Something else that's included in this kit are these block off plates. Because the bumper is designed to be run just as it is out of the box, or with the optional tire carrier, you can install the block off plates to cover the tire carrier mounting points for a nice clean look. Like we said before, this bumper is all about strength and that's for the frame rails in much as the same way as the factory bumper, but it also mounts to the cross-member in the center of the bumper. And it doesn't just mount to the outside of the cross-member. The kit also includes a sandwich plate for additional strength. Even though this bumper isn't tow rated, it's really strong and it mounts to the Jeep in much the same way as a hitch would. It becomes even more evident just how beefy this is when you go to install it. The bumper installs pretty easily just like most other bumpers. The first thing you have to do is remove a couple bolts to get the old bumper off and the new one will bolt right in place with the supplied hardware. The only thing that makes this a little bit of a challenge is the sheer weight of the bumper. It can be a little bit difficult to get some of the bolts lined up, so I definitely recommend having an extra set of hands around. If you are going to do this on your own, you can use an engine hoist or some jack stands to support the weight of the bumper. The whole installation should take about an hour and you won't need any specialty tools, just some sockets and some open ended wrenches. One tip for your installation is to have a tap on hand. We use that to clear out the threaded holes on top of the bumper for the block off plates because ours had a little bit of residual powder coat. Like I said before, this bumper is really heavy-duty. It is really well built, really strong. And as far as that goes, I think you get a lot of value for the cost. And I also like that this is upgradable down the line. You can buy the bumper now and always add the tire carrier on later when you need it, or just purchase them separately to spread out the cost a little bit. So we fought with this bumper just a little bit during the installation just because it is so big and heavy, but once we got it bolted up it looks good, it fits really well and, like I said before, it's really, really strong. So that's my review of the Barricade Extreme HD Rear Bumper fitting all 2007-2016 JK's that you can find right here at ExtremeTerrain.com.

Great Looking Bumper
It was delivered in days. Install took about 2 hours, the instructions were decent @ best however it's not very hard to figure out how to install it. To easily do the install u will need one extra person and a jack stand. The finished product looks amazing on vehicle!Helpful (2)

Love my my barricade bumper. Only reason I give it a 4 star is because it’s not row rated.Helpful (2)

Substantial bumper. Simple install.
I am much more confident in this bumper than I am the flimsy stock bumper. Plus it looks good. Not to put too fine a point on it, but the photographs in the instructions suck. Fortunately it's easy enough to figure out without them. I needed a hand getting it held in position while I started the bolts, but it took me a little over an hour working by myself.Helpful (3)

Bumper looked great!! Install was easy but... had to slot the holes so it would line up on the driver side. It was about 1” difference between driver and passenger side.Helpful (2)

Extreme rear bumper
Love the bumper I know have both front and rear on my 2010 jku. It took about a hour and half to install directions are not very clear on installation. The four bolt in middle are a pain to line up but once installed it’s rock solid. I am very pleased with this bumper and Extreme Terrain and will continue to order from themHelpful (8)

This bumper is heavy duty thick plate, that said all holes lined up bolts fell into place as they should. Super easy install minus it being heavy but that's a good thing, all hardware was included directions were vague but a little common sense and it's on. Bumper was packaged super well not even a scratch even though the box was smashed at one end. Overall a 5 star product.Helpful (7)
While this is not tow rated, I’m assuming it’s perfect for a bike rack? Will it hold up for long distance trips with a couple of bicycles hanging off of it
Yes, the hitch on the Barricade Extreme HD Rear Bumper is designed for use as a recovery point, so it will have more than enough strength to hold your bikes and rack.
I have a 2013 2 door Wrangler Sahara with your roof rack. I am wanting to put a rear bumper with receiver hitch that will allow me to keep the mounting of the roof rack to the frame. Will the extreme HD bumper work for this application?
Hello, the Barricade Extreme HD Rear Bumper (07-17 Wrangler JK) since it does not wrap around the rear corner of the Jeep, it will allow you to be able to keep the mounting of the roof rack to the frame.
Can you mount the Kargo Congo Pro Roof Rack to rear bumper without drilling new holes?
The rear brackets for the rack actually attach to the pinch seam on the body of your Jeep so no modifications would be needed to your bumper or your Jeep!
What's the tongue weight good for? If I put 5 mountain bikes including the rack, would it hold the bouncing and weight without folding and such?
The Barricade Extreme HD Rear Bumper does not have an official tongue rating, as it is not designed to be used for towing. The hitch is designed for use as a recovery point, so it will have more than enough strength to hold your bikes and rack.
How can i get the hardware to cover the holes where a tire holder would go?
We do not carry a cover for the tire carrier mount location on the Barricade bumper. A cover may be custom fabricated or plugs may be able to be sourced from a local automotive or hardware store.
Sorry to hear about your accident, but we do offer the RedRock 4x4 Wrinkle Coat Touch Up Kit (J900800) that can be found here, https://www.extremeterrain.com/deadsku3649.html.
Hello, yes, this bumper will fit a 2017 JK.
Hello, you would have to search for a bumper that does not come with the Hitch attached and has an opening for the factory hitch, unfortunately Barricade does not have bumpers like that, you could get this one for example: http://www.extremeterrain.com/hyline-offroad-standard-jk-400200110.html
This would be possible, however, this would be a custom alteration and would require cutting and fabrication.
The tow hitch on this Barricade Extreme HD Rear Bumper is welded in, and the stock hitch cannot install with this bumper.
Hello, While this would not change the tow capacity of the jeep itself, this barricade extreme force bumper is not tow rated. This would mean that legally you would be unable to tow a trailer on a road.
Hello, for the Barricade Extreme HD Rear Bumper (07-17 Wrangler JK) it will depend on which tire carrier you have. We wouldn't advise using an oversize tire on the stock tire carrier and, it probably wouldn't work with this bumper. If your planning on using a 37" tire then we would advise getting the Barricade Extreme HD Rear Bumper w/ Tire Carrier (07-17 Wrangler JK) which can accommodate a 37" tire and is reinforced for it, you can find it here: http://www.extremeterrain.com/barricade-x-r-hd-bcarrier-j103688.html
Unfortunately the Barricade Extreme HD Rear Bumper (07-17 Wrangler JK) is not rated for towing and should only be used for recovery purposes.
Hello, the Barricade Extreme HD Rear Bumper (07-17 Wrangler JK) does not have spots for the tow safety hook, mainly because it is not tow rated, this receiver is more meant to have a cargo rack, bike rack, etc...
Hello, for the Barricade Extreme HD Rear Bumper (07-17 Wrangler JK) it will work with the Barricade Roof Rack, depending on which rear side mount your using now, you can either use the body mount or the frame mount.
