Installation Instructions: 

1. If you have a YJ (1995 and older) jeep, you will need to line up the bumper with the current holes and see which holes on the (new bumper) fit with the current ones to test fit, then mark where you need new holes. Use a 7/16” drill bit. No need to drill holes if you have a TJ model (1996 and newer). 

2. Using a 3⁄4” socket with 3” extension and a 3⁄4” box end wrench bolt on the new bumper without installing the tire carrier. It makes it easier and lighter to lift. With each bolt there’s 2 washers and a lock nut, be sure to have a washer on the head of the bolt and on the backside of the bumper, have a washer with the lock nut. 

3. Install tire carrier by lifting it onto the tube with the zerc fitting. Should already come greased. First install nylon washer then install snap ring under the golden zerc fitting. 

4. Then install the 2 bolts and washers which are 17mm. Tighten until you can comfortably swing out the tire carrier and it doesn’t come swinging back by itself. 

5. Install tire carrier wheel rim mounting bracket. Slide it on towards the jeep tail gate until the bolt holes lineup. Install 3 bolts using an 11/16” socket and box end wrench. You will also need a 3” 3/8” extension with ratchet. 

6. Install top post using a 24mm socket along with a crescent adjustable wrench or 24mm box end wrench. 

7. Stand back and enjoy the finished product!
