Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com, and this is my review of the Smittybilt SRC Classic Rock Crawler Rear Bumper, fitting all 1987 to 2006 Wranglers. This bumper is available as you see it here, just the bumper. It's also available as a bumper with two D-ring mounts built into it and also has the option for you to purchase this bumper with a tire carrier. So, regardless of what you're looking for on your Jeep, Smittybilt has you covered. As far as an aftermarket rear bumper goes, this is pretty much as simple as you can get. This bumper does have a two-inch receiver built into it that is tow rated, which makes it a little bit different from some of the other companies out there that don't have a tow rating for their receiver. However, other than that, this is strip down and simple. So, if you're looking for a simple look, and you're looking for a bumper that's inexpensive, this is a really nice option. Like we said, this bumper is all about simplicity. It's a steel bumper that's covered in a textured black powder coat finish to resist both rust and corrosion. It does have this tow rated two-inch receiver built into it with spots for your safety chains, which does add some function. Other than that, this is very, very simple. If you do get this bumper with the D-ring mounts on it, you get two additional recovery points that add some additional function. You can also get this bumper with a spindle and a latching mechanism that will accept Smittybilt's tire carrier, or you can get it as a full kit including the tire carrier. Tire carriers are beneficial, because if you have a larger than factory spare tire, it may not fit in the factory spare tire mount on your Jeep. And even if it does fit, the additional weight of the larger spare can cause some issues. So, getting it on to a bumper mounted carrier is a good idea. To get this bumper installed on your TJ, the first thing you'll have to do is remove your bumper end caps, and they're held on with a couple of torque screws. That will give you access to the nuts that hold the bumper onto the frame. And you'll also have to remove the two Torx bolts that hold the bumper under the frame from the underside. Once all six of those bolts are removed, the factory bumper will come off, and you can start with installing this. Now, to get this bumper installed, you wanna hold it up to the crossmember and mark the locations where you have to drill that crossmember. Now, you can drill with the gas tank in place, but be incredibly careful not to drill too far and actually make contact with the tank with your drill. Eventually, you will have to drop the tank in order to get the backing plate on the other side of the crossmember and to get the bolts in place. So it may make sense to just drop the tank before you even start drilling. Once the holes are drilled, you can put the bumper back in place, put the backing plate on the other side of the crossmember, and attach all of the bolts into the threaded holes that are in the back of the bumper. From there, you'll also replace the two bolts that hold the bumper on from the bottom of the frame rails, and you're done. The whole installation should take about three hours, give or take, because you do have to drop the tank, which makes this a little bit more of an involved install. You won't need any specialty tools to get this done, but you will need some Torx bits and a drill with some good sharp drill bits. In my opinion, this bumper is priced pretty fairly. It is very simple. However, it has a functional two-inch receiver, which, again, is tow rated where a lot of the other ones aren't. And even though the install's a little bit more involved, that's only something you have to do once, and you'll never have to do again. So, if you're looking for a simple bumper that is inexpensive, I think this is a nice option. So, that's my review of the Smittybilt SRC Classic Rock Crawler rear bumper available for all 1987 to 2006 Wranglers, that you can find right here at ExtremeTerrain.com.

I need to know the total width of the bumper and the distance between the hinge pin and the lock. I am mounting this on a trailer made from an old Jeep and I need to know if the tailgate will open clearing the hinge pin if it's centered

TimO

Is there a rear rack that will fit with this tire carrier/bumper set up? Smittybuilt doesn't appear to make one, hoping another brand will easily bolt up...

TK

  • To determine whether or not we have the rear rack you are looking for, I would recommend calling into our main line 1-855-424-1932 to describe the item in more detail. We have a number of racks varying from full roof racks to hitch mounted racks for your Jeep.

Is the tire carrier removable? And does it have mounts for gas tanks or lights.

Quinten

According to the instructions that came with my bumper I need drop the gas tank to drill 4 holes in the back frame. The instructions I downloaded from the product page says they are "optional". The instructions that came with the bumper don't say anything about being "optional". Are these *absolutely* necessary?

MMYoung

I have 33x13.50x15 rims on my tj. Will this tire carrier accommodate the 13.50 wide tire?

Max

  • Hello, yes this will accommodate your 33x13.50x15 setup.

Do the body mounts need to be loosened to mount this? I checked out the installation instructions and they talk about loosening the body mounts and using a pry bar to raise the tub (and using vise grips to bend the sheet metal?) in order to install some of the brackets. Does that really need to be done?

CR0330

  • No that does not need to be done any longer. I think that was for a previous version of the bumper because the new installation does not use those instructions.

    This was simple to put it on. It took me about an hour to mount, but all afternoon as I did some rust prevention on the frame before mounting this bumper. It handles a 32" BFG AT as a spare and my bike rack. So this will handle whatever size you can put on it. I highly recommend this unit for your TJ!

    Shake, Rattle Roll

    Let me start by saying, this thing is a tank. With a CLASS 3 hitch built in, and additional mounting bolts than my old hitch and bumper, it's solid as a rock and exceeds my Jeep's towing ability by a bunch. Heavy, rock-solid construction, and a pretty good price-point to boot. It also looks great, hardcore and like you want it to. The bad - this thing rattles like crazy; from the D-Rings to the latch, it all required modification on my part to even make it tolerable. With the mods, it sounds like your Jeep is about to come apart (or, exactly like my old CJ, all the time) So, you are going to have to rig something up - I sliced a door stopper for the latch and rubber tubing pieces with electrical tape for the d-rings. It sorta worked. If anyone has an better ideas, please post them. Otherwise, just know what you are getting into before you buy.

    Good Fit and finish- updated the grease fitting

    Great fit and finish. Install was time consuming but not too difficult. I had read on several reviews that the grease fitting for the tire carrier would not allow the tailgate to swing open all the way. this is ABSOLUTELY TRUE. After pumping the bearing full of grease, I removed the zerk (sp?) fitting and covered the hole with a random plastic trim button that I had laying around. I don't hear the shackles rattle and the tire carrier locks in tight. I don't hear that rattle at normal highway speeds on paved roads. All in all, great buy.

    Great, but could use improvements

    Overall, very happy with this bumper. Stout construction, easy installation. Only 2 downfalls/issues. #1 the grease zirk on the spindle snapped off because it sticks up, exposed to everything. I'm going to have to tap it out now and replace it. #2 the latch assembly, though it has a hitch pin to secure it, RATTLES incesently. They need to make some sort of latch binder that will bind it down, eliminating movement. My concern is that, over time, this movement may compromise the weld on the spindle and cause the entire carrier to separate from the bumper/vehicle. SB could also develop/offer some way to attach a trail jack (mount). There's ample room behind the mount between the mount and tailgate.

    YJ install

    Tight fit on a YJ holes just barely line up . Inner bolts can be put on without dropping gas tank . With Wobble socket and some patients . Had to go to hardware store for bolts . For the bumper and the tire swing . After mounting bumper had to remove bottom hinge on tail gate to slide tire carrier on . Very solid and heavy bumper . Good finish . Looks like it can hold any size tire . 32×11.50 still has space between frame and tire with mount all the way in .

    Even Better Than Expected

    Have been looking for a good bumper with hitch receiver and tire swing. After looking at many other choices, I went with the Smittybuilt SRC classic because of looks and price. After receiving the box in just a few days. I was very happy with the look of quality. Install time was just over an hour. Would have been faster but had to make stock holes on jeep a little bigger to line up with new bumper. Have already had many compliments from fellow Jeep owners and some may be purchasing same bumper. I'm very happy with this Bumper and WILL be buying a Smittybuilt front bumper in the future.

    Heavy Duty, Well Built, Great Looking

    Great looking and well built bumper. I installed it by myself. Pretty easy to do, but would be super easy with help. Seems very sturdy. The finish is nice. With the spare on it rattles a little bit on a bumpy road, but other than that it is pretty quiet.

    love this bumper

    Be sure to use the guide provided to drill holes. I thought my bumprets had the same holes on my yj and ended up putting it on and off 3 times. Just to see i had to slightly widen 2 holes. If you don't drop the gas tank it's a real pain. Overall it looks great and is very solid. Arrived at my house in 2 days and was packaged very well.

    Amazing!!

    Works like a champ and looks amazing. Hardest part of install was trying to work around the gas tank. I tried to save time by not dropping the tank buy ended up taking a lot longer. It did rattle but I bought some weather stripping and problem solved. Overall it's a great product from a great company.

    It is noisy. Not always easy to open. Tire is high and blocks view. Also if you have a raised hitch to pull a trailer the tire carrier will not clear it.

    Nice bumper

    Very pleased with this bumper, heavy steal and the look is great, it was a bit difficult to install since you have to remove the gas tank to get to some of the bolts but to be expected. I would recommend this if you are looking for a rugged look with good strong attachment and pulling ability.

    Bad Boys Bumper

    This thing is beast very heavy duty. Took a couple of hours to install. Those bolts in the middle are impossible to get to if you have large hands so dropping the tank is the only way to get on. Had to drill the holes on the passenger side of the jeep a little but no big problem. Have pulled our popup camper with it and has done great. Great product would highly recommend this bumper , only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 had to drill out the holes for the fit was off a little but other than that it's great.
