      Video Review & Installation

      Hey, guys. So, today I'm here with the Rugged Ridge Spartan Full Width Rear Bumper, fitting all 2007 to 2018 JK Wranglers. So, as you guys know, adding a rear bumper to your rig can add a number of different benefits. This one by Rugged Ridge is gonna do just that by adding some full-width rear protection. It's gonna add some recovery points as well as angled sides for better departure angles on the trail. This is also gonna benefit you by being very lightweight compared to all its competitors being a steel bumper, so that's going to save you a lot of weight on the trail, so you're not carrying all of that extra weight and it's not weighing you down.So, this is gonna cost you roughly $400, and I personally think for the fitment and the engineering behind this, that the price is fair. Now, rear bumpers, as we all know, can range anywhere from $300 all the way up to $1,200. So, I personally think with a simplistic option like this being very affordable, that it is worth the money. Now, it's not going to have all the bells and whistles that other choices may have like a heavy-duty spare tire carrier or a hitch receiver integrated in the bumper, but I personally think that this is gonna get the job done and it's going to look very good doing it.So, install is going to be a light two out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. It's nothing you can't handle in your driveway in about two hours with a couple of basic hand tools. So, speaking of the install, let's jump into that now. The tools that I used for my install were an impact wrench, an 18-millimeter wrench, a 3/8-inch drive, ratchet, an extension, a 3/16-inch deep socket, and an 18-millimeter socket.So, the first step of this install is just to take off your spare tire. Now, this is going to give you a little bit more room to work with. I'm using a 13/16-inch socket and an extension to get that done. So, our next step is to go to the side of our frame and we're gonna remove the two bolts that are holding in the bracket that are holding on our bumper. I'm gonna be using an 18-millimeter socket. You may have some smaller hardware holding on your bumper. So, after those four bolts are out, we're ready to take off our bumper. Now you may have two extra bolts on the inside of the frame rail, we do not, so we're ready to take this off.So, you may have two extra bolts and brackets that will connect to the bumper in the middle of the frame rail that you'll have to remove. So, sitting these two bumpers sides by side, right off the bat, I do like the fact that this is kind of an upgraded version of the stock rear bumper. It's a very similar design. You're still getting wheel to wheel coverage. You get that wraparound end, however, it's going to be a lot more durable, made of plate steel with a black textured powder coat finish. So, it's gonna be able to take a hit compared to your plastic factory bumper and it's gonna have that finish for corrosion resistance, rust resistance, as well as to resist any surface damage and really assist you in getting that rugged and off-road look.Now, speaking of the design of the actual bumper, this is gonna have those wraparound ends, like I said, however, they are going to be angled up and that's going to help your departure angles off-road, which I do really like. Now, you're also getting the center cut out, which is similar to our plastic rear bumper here. However, it's going to be more angular and it's gonna be larger, fitting a larger wheel and tire on your spare tire carrier.Now, I would like to mention that this won't come with D-rings, but they're very easy to access, very easy to outsource, and it gives you the opportunity to customize the look of your rear bumper. Now, not to mention, this will also work with the factory hitch receiver as well as any aftermarket hitch receivers if you do want to add that to the package. Now, enough about these two side by side, let's bolt up our new one.Our first step is to insert the nut plate inside of our frame horn. Now, you want the two bolts on the outside facing the wheel. You're gonna want a bolt facing the inside, facing your exhaust. And then you're gonna to have this tab at the bottom, so keep that in mind when inserting it in the frame horn, and then you can wiggle that in and place it where everything is going to line up. We're just going to let that hang out there for a second, go do the other side, and we can attach our bumper.So, your frame rail may be a little bit tight. Now that is not a problem. All you have to do is grab a dead blow, a hammer. I wouldn't grab a metal face hammer and just because you don't want to damage the actual mount, but a dead blow should do the job and you just should be able to tap it in. Right, but we still do need to line everything up, and that is right about where we want to be.So, before we can attach our bumper, we do need to bolt these to our frame. Now, you're gonna use the shorter hardware with the oversized washer and the lock washer. We can go ahead and thread those two on the outside. Now, we're not going to completely tighten them down, but we do want to get them pretty snug so they stay most of the way in place. So, after those are in place, we do have one left on the inside as well. So, this may be a little bit difficult to see, but that's just because that our body mount is here. But on the inside of the frame horn, basically the opposite side of your rear bolt, we can thread in another one of those short bolts. And we can do the other side.So, what we're gonna do now is place our bumper over our frame horns and our mounts. And it's gonna tuck very nicely up against our body and up against this contour here. So, now we have our hardware as well as our D-ring mounts ready, so we're gonna go ahead and line those up and thread in our bolts. Now, we can do the same thing on the other side. And, I do actually like how this looks. It gives it a modular look and some riveted accenting with the hardware here, and I think it really gives it an aggressive look overall.Now, that we have everything lined up, we're gonna go ahead and tighten everything down. I'm using that same 18-millimeter socket and ratchet and that I used to take off the bumper. Now, on the inside, we're not going to be able to fit a socket and a ratchet in there because of that body mount, so I'm gonna use an 18-millimeter wrench. So, after the bolts on the frame are tightened down, we can move to the D-ring mount bolts. For these, we're gonna use that same 18-millimeter socket and ratchet. And do the same for the other side. So, our last step is just to throw on our spare tire. So, that's gonna wrap it up for my review and install on the Rugged Ridge Spartan Full Width Rear Bumper, fitting all 2007 to 2018 JK Wranglers.
