    Review & Install Video

    I'm Ryan from extremeterrain.com and this is my review and installation of the Rugged Ridge Xtreme Heavy Duty Rear Bumper, fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs. Today, I'm gonna tell you about the construction, the features and the installation of this bumper. This bumper is for those of you who are looking to swap your factory rear bumper with one that's going to provide a lot more protection to the back end of your Jeep. This bumper also has some additional features, the option to add a tire carrier and some recovery points that make it a really nice bumper for off-roading and for on-road driving. This is a steel bumper that's covered in E-coating and a textured black powder coat finish. That finish makes it look good but it'll also match a lot of the factory plastic black accents on the JK and a lot of other aftermarket accessories. One thing I really like about this bumper is that it's full width and it wraps around to the sides, so this is going to give you protection on road and off road from not only the back of the jeep but also from the sides. The bumper has a nice deep cutout in the center, so if you are running a larger than factory spare in your factory spare tire mounting location, you'll have some additional clearance when you open and close the tailgate to keep that tire from hitting the bumper. If you have a much larger spare tire and you're looking for a bumper-mounted spare tire carrier, you have an option with this as well. You can purchase the Rugged Ridge Tire Carrier and it'll bolt right onto this bumper without the need to drill or cut anything. As you can see, the bumper also has a couple of D-ring mounts which are really nice for recoveries, and also a small notch in the center here which will allow you to run a factory tow-rated hitch with the bumper in place. Getting this bumper mounted up on your Jeep is a pretty simple process. The first step is to remove your factory bumper by removing the two bolts in each frame rail and the two bolts across the rear center crossmember. You'll wanna hang onto to those bolts because you are going to use them in installing this bumper. You know, this bumper does come out of the box preassembled, and we had some luck simply sliding the brackets into the frame rail attached to the bumper and bolting everything up. However, the manufacturer does suggest that you remove the bolts from the bumper, and taking the brackets and the D-ring mounts off. Once you have those brackets removed, you can slide them into the frame rails, attach them with that factory hardware, and finally, bolt the bumper onto the newly installed brackets using the eight bolts that are also your D-ring mounts. The whole installation process should take you right around an hour and you won't need any specialty tools, but if you have a good set of air tools, it'll definitely speed the process along. The bumper is a little bit heavy, and of course, with being full width like this, it's a little cumbersome to move around, so having an extra set of hands will also help out. Overall, I would say that this bumper is really solidly built and I think you do get a lot of value for what you pay, especially because the bumper is a wraparound style bumper and there's a little bit more material here than there are on some other off-road bumpers. However, any way you slice it, this bumper is expensive, especially by the time you add a tire carrier onto it. You can get some other tire carrier and bumper combinations on the market for less than this bumper alone costs, let alone adding the carrier. So it really comes down to what you need and what your budget is. So if you're looking for an aftermarket rear bumper that's going to add a bunch of protection to the back of your Jeep and a couple of additional features, I would recommend taking a look at this bumper assuming you have the budget for it. So that's my review of the Rugged Ridge Xtreme Heavy Duty Rear Bumper fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.

    Construction. The Rugged Ridge Xtreme Heavy Duty Rear Bumper is constructed from heavy duty steel and features an E-coated powder coat finish for added strength. The special inner mounting plate makes it great for off-road use.

    Installation. It comes complete with a rear HD bumper, a left bracket, a right bracket, nine 12mm washer and bolt, six plugs, and a nut plate. With the included hardware, this jeep wrangler JK bumper can be installed in no time.

    D-ring Attachments. The sturdy D-rings included in this heavy duty rear bumper system allow you to easily add attachments.

    Compatibility. This rear bumper system is compatible with 2007-2018 models of Jeep Wrangler.

    Does this bumper allow any more room for a larger spare tire when using the standard door mount? 33", 34", or even 35" tires?

    • Hello, with the stock door tire mount this will fit up to a 33" tire. If you add the optional spare tire carrier to the bumper it can hold up to a 35" tire. I attached the link for the optional rear tire carrier here: http://www.extremeterrain.com/rugged-ridge-xhd-tire-carrier-jk-1154625.html

      Nice rear end

      It took me several weeks to decide if I had the time to install. Had I known how easy it was it would have been in place the first day it was received. It was missing one of the rubber bolt hole covers but other than that it"installed without a hitch"

      Heavy duty, sweet looking bumper

      Bumper looks great, received bumper assembled but one of the bolts was about 1/2 inch unscrewed, no big deal. Took stock bumper off, mounted hardware then put bumper on, leaving bolts loose per instructions. When I tighten everything up ( by hand with ratchet ) all was going well until I tightened ( you guessed it ) the bolt that wasn’t all the way screwed in when I got it, as I was tightening I felt a slight pop and the nut was stripped...darn it, tried a different bolt, same thing......I tightened every other bolt without issue....I’m sure it will be fine with all the other bolts tight but it is aggravating. I used some JB weld, and put the bolt in as tight as I could before it hit the bad spot and it seems ok. Bumper looks great and fits great, I wish you could jack the vehicle up off it but all in all a great bumper. Would have given 5 stars except for that one bolt.....

      You should know...

      I just installed mine on a 2015 Rubi. The stock bumper weighs 23 lbs. The Rugged Ridge XHD is 94 lbs. After considering hardware and the removal of the stock tow hook, the net increase in weight is 70.6 lbs. That dropped the rear of my jeep 3/8". The quality is better than the modular front bumper from RR. Overall, it is a bit high priced even on sale but if you like the look as I did, you gotta do what you gotta do.

      Tough Install

      The bumper arrived on time and in excellent condition. The bumper arrived completely put together and I had just installed the matching front bumper and attempted to install the rear bumper. I couldn't get the frame crossbeam hooks over the crossbeam, I tried several times as it was a snug fit to the frame and tough to maneuver. I ended up taking it to a specialty shop and they completed the install in 1 1/2 hrs. I didn't plan on that expense and that is the only reason for the 3 star fit and bang for you buck rating. Very happy with the bumper and the look it gives my JK.

      Gorgeous rear bumper... solid!

      Rear Bumper: Much sturdier than the stock plastic bumper that comes out of the factory and fairly easy to install. The installation instructions are very straightforward. The only issue is getting all of the holes to line up between the mounts and the bumper itself, but if you carefully read the instructions it says to keep the mounts loose when attaching the bumper. If left loose, the bumper just takes a little bit of wiggling around and you'll be able to get everything bolted on and tightened up easily.

      Looks good

      I'm giving this bumper 4 stars because if I ever want to add the spare tire carrier it will never fit due to bolt holes being off by 1/2in. No matter how much movement or adjusting the holes never lined up. The bumper looks great though and has plenty of protection. Extreme Terrain had this to my door step 3 days after ordering.

      Great bumper!

      Installation was not bad. If you will have a newer JK, expect extra hardware. The tire carrier is more complex and I did them both in an afternoon. Two people make handling the bumper much easier. I recommend it for the heavy parts of the installation. It is doable alone, but much easier with an extra set of hands.

      I like it!

      Packaged was beat up but contents were well protected. No scratches or dings (box was trashed bad) wanted another brand for my build but was not going to work with my cargo rack mounts, so I chose this one. I wanted the side protection to match up to the factory fender flares. Install was not difficult and as long as you leave all the bolts loose (as per the instructions), everything lined up. One great note, I wanted to match the back D-Ring mounts with the front and they do indeed line up! (I did not want mismatched D-rings thus having to paint the ones that came with the bumper). Install time for just myself with basic hand tools was just under two hours (this included stock bumper and mud flap mount removal, and disassembly of the lower part of my cargo rack). I only have two real issues with this product, hence the four stars. 1) Price. It was about $200 more than the one I would have originally gotten that had a lot more features I wanted. 2) Fit. It doesn't run completely flush with the factory flares like my front bumper from the same company. This could be that my cargo rack mounting brackets sit directly on top of it, possibly negating it sitting flush. Overall, I am happy with this product and am actually glad my bumpers match completely.

      Bumper installed pretty easy. 8 out of 9 bolts when it relatively easy. Had to fight to align the 9th but got it after a little work. Feels extremely sturdy and a great replacement for the plastic original bumper.

      Good rear bumper

      This rear bumper fits well if you follow the directions about when to tighten things. Hopefully the 5/32 thickness will be tough enough. Looks good with the XHD front bumper. Price seems pretty high for what you are getting, but no complaints other than that. We'll see how rust-proof it is over time.

      I love this bumper!

      The Rugged Ridge XHD rear bumper looks great and installed in no time at all. (roughly 3 hours with an additional tire carrier) There is no extra drilling or modifications to the Jeep itself which is a huge plus. I highly recommend this bumper if your looking for the best bang for you buck. You have options for a couple types of tire carriers, the installation is a breeze, it looks amazing and it's the right price... what more could you ask for!
