Review & Install Video

I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com and this is my review of the Redrock 4X4 Tubular Rock Crawler Rear Bumper with Tire Carrier fitting all 1997-2006 TJs. Today I'm gonna talk you through the construction, the features and the installation of this bumper and tire carrier. This bumper and tire carrier setup is for those of you who like this tubular rear bumper look and don't need the protection and the features offered by a lot of the more expensive and more heavy duty plate steel off-road bumpers. This will offer some more protection than your factory bumper but it's not going to be quite as strong as those plate steel bumpers. It also doesn't have some of the recovery points and some of the other features of the more expensive bumpers and higher carrier setups. So if you're on a little bit of a budget and all you want to do is get your spare tire off of your factory tailgate location, this is a nice setup. This bumper is made of 2-inch diameter of .12 inch wall thickness steel tubing which is where it gets it's strength from. As I said this is going to offer some more protection than your factory rear bumper will, but not quite as much as a plate steel rear bumper would. This also offers a completely different look from those plate steel bumpers so if this is a look you're after, it's definitely a nice option to take a look at. It's covered in a textured black powder coat finish which is going to resist rust and corrosion and it also matches a lot of your factory black plastic accents that are already on your Jeep. Now as I mentioned, this bumper is going to be less expensive than some of the stronger plate steel rear bumper and it doesn't have quite as many features. This bumper doesn't offer recovery point mounts for D-rings on either side of the bumper. Bumper does have a 2-inch receiver in the center which can be used as a recovery point. This also doesn't have any leg mounts built into it. If you are looking for a bumper that is a little bit heavier duty and has some additional features and you have the budget for it, you can always take a look at our offerings from Barricade, Rugged Ridge, Smittybilt and a number of other brands. As far as the tire carrier goes, it's a little bit more of the same. This tire carrier will definitely take the weight off of your factory tailgate which is a good thing, however, it doesn't have quite as many features as some of the more expensive carriers on the market. This tire carrier does adjust in and out which will help you to get the tire nice and tight up against the tire carrier which will keep things from twerking around and the metal from fatiguing, which is very nice. However, it's not up and down adjustable so if you have a 33-inch tire on this tire carrier, it may look like it's sitting a little higher than it should be and unfortunately because it isn't adjustable you can't move it down. Again, some of those other brands, Rugged Ridge, Smittybilt and Barricade do offer some more expensive tire carrier setups that have those additional features. One thing that I do like about this tire carrier setup is the way it attaches to the spindle. Some of the mounts are sealed circle and if you neglect those and they start to get rusted onto the spindle, there is no way to get the carrier separated from the bumper. With this setup you can always loosen the clamping bolts, remove the tire carrier, clean up the spindle, and grease it properly and put it back together. That is a really nice feature. Finally getting to the latching mechanism, again, a little bit more of the same, this is going to be a little bit less expensive than some of the other setups on the market and you can see that when you look at the latch. This has a manual hitch pin that you'll have to remove, swing open the tire carrier, close it again, and reinstall the hitch pin as opposed to a levered latching mechanism that a lot of the other tire carriers on the market do have. One thing I do like about this bumper and tire carrier setup is how easily it installs on the Jeep. This is designed to be completely bolt on so there's no drilling or cutting, and as long as you have a set of sockets and some hand tools, you can get this job done without needing to take the Jeep to a shop. The first step is of course to remove the six bolts that are holding your factory bumper in place. There are two bolts in the cross member on either side and one in the bottom of each frame rail. Once those six bolts are removed you can pull off your factory bumper and then just pop this one right into place using all those factory mounting locations. Finally, you'll drop your tire carrier onto the spindle and continue to assemble it. There is the tire mount which is separate and again that's in slotted holes so that you can adjust it in and out and get your tire nice and tight up against the tire carrier, and this other piece that goes up top to give the tire something else to rest against, making sure everything stays good and tight. The whole installation process should take you right around an hour but if the factory bolts are a little bit rusty you'll want to make sure to spray them ahead of time because they could fight you, adding a little bit of time to the installation. Now I've mentioned a few times that this bumper doesn't have all of the features or all the protection of those plate steel more heavy duty off-road bumpers. However, this is also going to be considerably less expensive. This bumper is for those of you who want to get your larger than factory spare tire off of the factory spare tire mount and don't need the protection and the features offered by those more expensive bumpers. If you fall into that category, I definitely recommend taking a look at this bumper. There's absolutely nothing wrong with it, it's a well-built piece and in my opinion, it looks pretty good. However, if you are somebody who's looking for an upgraded latch, some more recovery points, a little bit more protection, take a look at one of those other brands. They have a lot of other plate steel bumpers that are gonna offer you everything you need. So if you have a larger than factory spare tire on your factory spare tire mount and you wanna make sure that you don't damage that mount or damage your tailgate, with the additional weight, moving it to a bumper mounted tire carrier like this is a great way to go. And while this tire carrier may not offer quite the protection and the features of a bumper and tire carrier that are twice as expensive, if you're on a budget, if you like this look, and if you don't need that additional protection and features, this is a great way to go. So that's my review of the Redrock 4X4 Tubular Rock Crawler Rear Bumper with Tire Carrier fitting all 1997-2006 TJs and you can find it right here at ExtremeTerrain.com.

How in the world does one tighten the 4 inside bolts that go through the crossmember into a nut? You can't reach the nuts to hold them tight while you tighten the bolt. Or do I just not have the special touch (considering no one else asked this Im assuming its just me).

ChrisC

When I drive, I hear a "metal on metal" sound where the carrier arm locks into the bumper. I put the retaining pin in and there is still a little play. Any words of wisdom?

RyanC

  • If you are getting a rattling/metal on metal sound on the RedRock 4x4 Tubular Rock Crawler Rear Bumper and Tire Carrier we recommend installing a small piece of self adhesive foam in the rest for the tire carrier. This will take up any free space, and prevent any noise if movement occurs.

Is this bumper strong enough to use a winch to recover my wrangler from a mud pit?

Dave

  • It really depends on how stuck you are however I have this bumper on my 98 TJ and have pulled other Jeeps out before. I would recommend using the hitch receiver to pull from only.

    Iv had several different jeeps and have ran multiple sets of bumpers and this is by far my favorite one at the best price. It was a complete bolt on after removing the bumperetts, there is a template to drill a couple of holes but I did not have to with mine. It is very well constructed and arrived in perfect condition. Took me less then an hour to install, I had some problems with my initial order but cust service was good and they resolved my problems.

    Bumper looks great, installation was OK had to re-drill bottom holes on my jeep to get the bumper to line up. My only complaint is that most of the mounting hardware was missing and no instructions came with my bumper.

    Better than expected

    I installed this bumper a little over a year ago. The install was simple and took about an hour. It looks great and has saved what is left of my tailgate. My spare is a 35" that was mounted on a modified oem spare carrier, but the thin sheet metal of a tailgate was ripping in 1/2. That was the main reason I purchased the bumper. There is a little rattle from where the swing away locks in place, but mostly blends into the clanks from the heim joints. I decided to write a review now because of an accident I had. While stopped at a red light a distracted driver plowed straight into the back of my jeep. My RedRock bumper got minor scuffing on the powder coat finish. There was no bare metal exposed and the stainless bars did not bend at all. The strength of the bumper most likely saved my life as she would have nailed my fuel tank if not for the bumper crumpling her car...there was more scraping on the skid plate than my bumper. He car (new Hyundai Elantra) was totaled and my jeep drove me home with no major damage. The bumper was initially a cheap buy with a swing away carrier. The quality exceeded my expectations and what I see from more expensive "name" brands. I am back here now because I want to upgrade my rocker armor and front bumper to similar RedRock powder coated stainless. You can't beat the price for the quality.

    Good price for a good bumper

    Bumper looks great on my TJ. I like the finish, seems pretty durable. Top outside holes lined up perfect, the bottom holes required some Dremel work to get the bolts in. Used the bumper as the template to drill the inside holes. Carrier seems sturdy enough to hold a 37 as claimed. Getting the latch to line up was a little tricky, but after a few adjustments I'm satisfied with how it latches. Still have to get my 33 spare so I'm still running my 30 spare for now, but it fit well. Doesn't seem to rattle while driving. All in all I'm happy with the bumper, couldn't ask for more for the price point.

    Lookin' Good!

    Very easy to install and looks great. I took the advice of other reviews and upgraded the bolts. Rattle is pretty minimal when going over rough roads/terrain. Easily holds a 35" tire. You can probably do the install solo, but another pair of hands is recommended. I had two different shipping issues (neither of which was the fault of ET), but ET took care of them without any hassle. Very satisfied.

    solid bumper

    This bumper seems very solid and sturdy.Test fitted the tire carrier and seems to be capable of easily handling heavy over sized tires, have not yet found a matching spare so I didn't permanently mount tire carrier yet. There was some minor drilling required to mount to my TJ. This bumper compliments the the Red Rock side armor steps I already have. This bumper is fairly heavy so a helper or floor jack is a bonus when installing. Plan to get the Red Rock front bumper next.

    Great bumper for the price

    Installed fairly easily, Note: On a 1991 YJ. Fit and finish is great, Welds and coating look great. Love the added security of the pin for the latch. I saw another jeep driving around walmart one day with his tire carrier swinging around nearly hitting cars and always feared that. But with the lock pin it just cant happen. And as a final plus. My tailgate will no longer be ripped off by a bouncing 33x12.50. For the price. Cant beat it.
