      Review & Installation Video

      I'm Ryan from 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.

        4 2003 Wrangler - Fsjcherokee Installation Time: Afternoon

        New bumper/carrier

        Installation was straight forward. Since I still have a stock suspension a five gallon bucket was the perfect height to help support the bumper. The drivers side drilled holes come out just behind the back corner of the fuel tank and I found a 3/8 drive ratchet with a swivel and 12" exrension worked best to hold the nuts to tighten them up. Used a telescoping magnet to get washers/nuts started. Once that was all done the rest was straight forward. I ended up going with the rugged ridge 3rd brake light. Overall it wasnt bad didnt time myself but between 2-3 hours depending on what you need to remove or fight.

        Great bumper

        Solid bumper, great look, good functionality. All that you really need to have for a great product. Only thing that should buyers should be aware of is not all the holes are going to line up, so you might have to do some drilling, despite the instructions saying that you only have drill two bolt holes, I had to drill three holes.

        Red Rock Rear Bumper w/Carrier

        I am very pleased with this set up. It was easy to install even with having to drill the extra holes. The manufacture holes in the bumper offer oval slots allowing some wiggle room. I did it by myself but would recommend having an extra person handy. The construction is heavy duty and has no issue with carrying a 35" mud tire on 15" rim with little to no flex while in motion. One recommendation is to pull the latch apart and lube the catch pin with bearing grease. This consists of just twisting off the handle but be mindful of the spring inside. Plus...looks awesome!

        For the price this is a great bumper. The mounting holes had to be drilled out in order to bolt the bumper on as the mounting holes in the bumper did not align to the holes in the frame of my Jeep. They were a 1/8" off.

        Upgrade tire carrier

        Install took awhile but worth it. Mod the box to keep the latch from rattling. Just bend it in a little. Can actually fit large tire. All the weight is on the bumper now.

        Great bumper

        Great bumper. Seems well made and very durable finish. I had to grind down the latch for the tire carrier swing arm as it did not detent properly, no big deal though, took me 5 minutes. Love the bumper

      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?

      • 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.

      Has anyone successfully fit this on a JK? I know RedRock makes a similar tubular bumper for JK's (, but that one unfortunately does not come with a tire carrier.

      • This is destined for the TJ so it will not properly fit on a JK without major modification.
