Heavy Duty and Easy to install!
This is one heavy duty bumper and also heavy, your adding 94 pounds to the back of your YJ! Install was pretty simple, one thing though beings this is a multi fit (TJ and maybe CJ) bumper pay attention to the instructions! Also the two bottom bolts on the original bumper are reused! Not sure why when all the other hardware was new? Either way I installed this and the tire carrier that is an option for this bump and I love it! Looks great, functional, an HD for sure! SIDE NOTE! If you have a 2" receiver hitch on your Jeep it will not work with this bumper! You have to use the Rugged Ridge hitch that works with this bumper! https://ruggedridge.com/2-inch-hitch-for-xhd-rear-bumper-11580-03.htmlHelpful (0)

I installed the XHD Rear Bumper on a 2004 Jeep Wrangler TJ. Looks great once all is bolted on. I found the printed instructions a bit vague - especially the quality of the pics. The video helped at first where the instructions were lacking, but missed the fact that 4 holes needed to be drilled in the bumper frame to accommodate the inside mounting. Be sure to revert back to the instructions for the final mounting bolt tightening sequence. The video also misses the final 4 holes to be drilled in the frame for the self tapping screws. All said, a big improvement over the stock bumper and highly recommended.Helpful (0)

Great Looking Bumper, but...
Well packaged and no damage. The issue comes with the install. I found that many parts did not line up the way the should have. I had to enlarge holes to make things work. Recommended bit sizes are not correct and had to be re-drilled to make the supplied hardware work. If you purchase this, measure the hole in the bumper to the supports they mount to. If they do not match, send it back or be prepared to do additional work. Overall, very happy with the way it looks but a lot more effort than it should been.Helpful (0)

I have an 01 sport that I bought with the bumper on it. I liked it so well when I just bought my 03 Rubicon I immediately ordered a front and rear for it. Super Quality and fits great!Helpful (9)

A great bumper, worth the price
The Rugged Ridge XHD Rear Bumper might be very expensive but it is definitely worth every penny. I have friends who have purchased less expensive bumpers and they are just not as heavy duty and will rust in a few months. My Rugged Ridge XHD Rear Bumper is still in like new condition after all the major off roading I do. The rear D rings are useful and look really cool.Helpful (11)
I do not see the thickness of the steel used for the bumper or mounting spacers in your specs or install video. Thanks
What is the rating for the shackles?
The Shackles have a 9500lb workload rating.
Is there any option for adding led lights to the bumper?
You would have to modify and cut LED lights into this bumper.
I have a class 3 tow hitch (curt) brand with eyelids thats made for my 2002 jeep wrangler x tj.. i love this bumper!! just wanted to make sure it would work with it, before i purchase bumper?
Unfortunately, the curt brand hitch may not bolt up directly to this rugged ridge bumper and may require some modifications to work. We do have the Rugged Ridge hitch that is made to fit this bumper and you can find that here: https://www.extremeterrain.com/omix-ada-rugged-ridge-tj-yj-1158003.html.
Is this Bumper rated for towing?
Hello, No this is not rated for towing but rugged ridge does make a complementary tow hitch for this bumper. For towing add the optional hitch part number 11580.03. (This is rugged ridges part $)
