Hey guys, I'm Kevin from Extreme Terrain, and this is my product review for the Red Rock 4x4 Rock Crawler Rear Bumper. The bumper looks good. It's a nice tubular design, and it looks pretty tough. Here's a couple of things that I want to mention. It's a simple bolt-in and it's got some features, like a two inch receiver. However, you got to look close. If you're going to use your two inch receiver for towing, there's some things I want to point out that maybe this bumper's not the best thing for you. Having said that, it's a cool look. We've got a plastic bumper on our JKs. This one, not plastic. It's a lot stronger than the factory one. And it's a simple installation. This bumper fits 2007 to 2016 Wrangler style Jeeps, and it's an upgrade. Let's face it, it's a nice upgrade and for not a whole lot of money. We'll talk about price later, but let's talk about the bumper. It's got a wrinkle black powder coat and an interesting tube design. It's got a secondary tube out here that could actually absorb some impact. I'm going to call this the primary tube that follows the line of the body. All in all, it's a nice looking piece. It's not just about a cool design, which it is, it's also got some function built in. You've got nice departure angles here because this is so open, and this tube here doesn't wrap quite as tight as the factory bumper did. So, again, you can accommodate a larger wheel and tire here. So if you're looking to upgrade your bumper for something that looks cool and gives you a little bit of function off-road and on-road, you got a dual purpose rig, this might be a good investment for you at about 350 bucks. And it's a very simple installation. Takes the place of the factory bumper, four bolts, Bob's your uncle, it's in. The directions will tell you about two hours for installation, including disassembly of the stock bumper. But, with Jeff, who's seen a few JKs, we shaved about half of that off. The factory style receiver bolts to the rear fully boxed cross member and is very strong because it's essentially a part of the frame.Unfortunately, it has to be removed because it's going to interfere with the fit of the new bumper. Since the Rock Crawler Bumper slides into the frame pockets, it can be a one guy install, but it's best to have a buddy just to be safe. Now obviously this is a no-drill installation and comes with all the hardware you need. Installed onto the back of this JK, there's an immediate transformation to a much tougher look, and it is tougher. It's going to protect you way better than the plastic bumper, just by the virtue that it's tube steel. There's great protection for the exhaust system, and right here it's a good distance away from the body work. So, on impact, if you do wheel with this thing and it gets stuffed up in, it's probably not going to come into contact with your sheet metal. Right here this is important. Above the receiver, we've got a couple of inches here. This is a 35, so we could probably easily accommodate a 37. Right around here I particularly like the way this fits. Yes, it's tapered up for good departure, but right here we've got unlimited wheel and tire size choices here. It's way far away from the quarter panel and the tire. But as I'm looking at it, I want to bring your attention to something right here. If you look closely here, the weld quality is not so great. It's powder coat, it's not going to rust, and it's not going to come apart, so does it really matter? I don't know. For my 350 bucks, I want to see a little bit nicer welds, but the receiver really kind of bugs me and the fact that it's not a towing bumper. It's not tied into that last cross member, like the stock receiver. So unless you're hauling a bike rack or a very light trailer, it's not a towing bumper. And, in the case of recovery, a lot of guys use a double hook right here in the receiver and use that for a recovery point. But if you're really jammed in and really stuck, you got a good chance of damaging the bumper and remaining stuck. So, don't ask it to do too much and you're not going to be disappointed with this bumper. Overall, it's a great value. It's a great look. I like it. Would I use it on my hardcore wheeler? No, I don't think I would. For a dual purpose rig that I take out every once in a while and go on some [inaudible 00:03:39] and some nice easy trail rides, yeah, this is a good bumper. This is a good value. So that's my product review of the Red Rock 4x4 Rock Crawler Rear Bumper. You can pick one up at ExtremeTerrain.com.

Decent bumper for the price.
Super easy install - 20 minutes which included the removal of the old bumper. I am "OCD" and I probably spent another 40 minutes obsessing at the angle of the bumper. The welds are not super clean - especially where the bumper meets the frame. I was hoping for a cleaner look.Helpful (6)

RedRoock rear bumper
Love the fact I can stand on my bumper without it collapsing on me. I'm no small fry, 6'1" 270. Easy to install and looks great. I don't understand why one bumper had to be freight and the other USPS but after I got it the installation was simple. Good job RR!Helpful (6)

I installed the Red Rock 4x4 Rock Crawler Rear Bumper on my 2016 Jeep Wrangler JK and it looks great. It's definitely better than the old plastic factory bumper. Next up is to replace the front bumper. More to follow.Helpful (6)
How much torque should be applied when connecting this bumper to the frame?
The bumper should be installed with the OEM torque spec of 50 ft-lbs.
Knowing that the hitch is only meant for bike racks / cargo, how much cargo weight can the hitch support?
Since the hitch on the RedRock 4x4 Rock Crawler Rear Bumper is not rated, it does not feature a weight limit. We would suggest keeping it under around 150 lbs.
Has anyone tried towing anything with this bumper?
The RedRock 4x4 Rock Crawler Rear Bumper would not be tow rated.
Does RedRock or any other manufacturer offer a tubular bumper of this style WITH a tire carrier? RedRock makes one for the TJ (https://www.extremeterrain.com/redrock-4x4-rear-bumper-yj-tj-j100585.html) what about for JK?
No, RedRock currently does not offer a tire carrier combination with that bumper.
Has anyone successfully cut the receiver hitch from this bumper entirely in order to use the tow-rated factory hitch?
We would not recommendcutting this receiver hitch off as this is part of the bumper and you may hurt the structural integrity of this bumper.
This bumper weighs approximately 60 lbs.
Currently RedRock 4x4 Rock Crawler Rear Bumper is not offered with a tire swing attached for the JK model Wranglers, like they have made for the TJs.
Yes, this will provide enough clearance for a 35-inch tire. Regarding the stock carrier, we do not recommend putting a 35-inch tire on your stock tire carrier unless you have upgraded hinges, such as this kit by MORryde, item number J102515, that you can find here: https://www.extremeterrain.com/barricade-hd-tail-hinges-j102515.html
The RedRock 4x4 Rock Crawler Rear Bumper will fit with a 35" tire yes.
The RedRock 4x4 Rock Crawler Rear Bumper includes a two hitch, so you could not retain your factory hitch. If you want to reuse your factory hitch, I would suggest looking at a different bumper that allows reuse of the factory hitch.
Hello, unfortunately this bumper is not tow rated, the receiver is meant for a cargo rack, bike rack etc...
