Great price zero quality
I was struck by a 2000 Buick at 2 miles an hour the bumper bent all the way into the body of the Jeep. The Buick didn’t even have a scratch. Bumper looks nice but offers almost zero protection.Helpful (0)

3" Tubular rear bumper w/ hitch
Rear bumper textured finish is perfect match to the front. This is 2 pieces. The hitch is separate and gloss black. The hitch is mounted first and the bumper attaches to it. Install is straight forward, hover the inside mounting bolts are tight to get to. A second person is nice to help hold up to secure. I did have to use a spacer when mounting the bumper to the hitch. It was off about a 1/16-1/8".Helpful (0)

YJ Tube Bumper
Bumper comes very well packaged. I was surprised to see that the hitch actually came in it's own separate box as well. There's some hardware and brackets that come with the bumper that are not needed if you buy the one with the hitch, so be ready for some initial confusion. The bumper looks great and the separate hitch part looks beefy. I am sure that the location where the receiver is mounted would fail before the receiver itself would. It was exactly what I wanted and expected it to be,a great looking and functional bumper at an affordable price.Helpful (0)

Five stars for appearance. Three for installation.
OK, first let me say that the fit is absolutely perfect. I have a 32" spare, and I was concerned that the notch in the tubes would not be big enough. It fit like a glove. The hitch is heavy duty and aligned perfectly with the frame, including the four holes already there. Bolting it onto the frame was relatively easy even doing it alone. However, it needed four more holes to be drilled, and the location of those holes did not align with the easiest access to the backside of the hitch. I had to snake my fingers crosswise, and that took the biggest amount of time in the entire process. An endoscope helped in getting the washer and nut onto the bolt. If I had it to do again I would learn how to remove the bumper frame from the frame, but that seemed to be as much work. After the hitch was installed the bumper went on with... I was going to say without a hitch, but you know. It was flawless. OK, the bumper is primarily there for appearance. It matches my front bumper and running bars almost perfectly. The hitch actually provides more protection to the gas tank than anything. I would buy this assembly again and recommend it highly. Nice piece of machinery. Oh, and if you're just thinking about getting only the bumper be aware that those same four holes will have to be drilled and accessed, so go for the hitch, too.Helpful (2)

I already purchased a Rugged Ridge tube bumper set , a Camry decided to take out my rear bumper so I figured since I need to replace, might as well get a hitch also. I love this set up. The receiver bolts to the frame, bumper bolts to the receiver. Nice set up, easy to install, looks killer.Helpful (9)
