    Cold Rolled Steel. The Smittybilt XRC rear bumper is built from 3/16" cold rolled steel. It's tough and dependable and designed to withstand the pressures of towing. The bumper is powder coated black and made to withstand rust and moisture well over time.

    A Simple Install Procedure. This Smittybilt XRC rear bumper installs in around two hours with the basic hardware that comes with it. The installer can put it into position and then lock it in place using the included hardware.

        Is this easier to install on an '04 Unlimited? All the instructions and reviews seem to wring their hands with concern over drilling into the gas tank when putting required holes in the crossmember. My "LJ" seems to have room behind the tank. I'm concerned about all the talk about dropping the tank.

        • Hello, you shouldn't have to remove the tank, but when drilling, Be Very Careful not to drill into the fuel tank. Use a drill stop on the drill bit to prevent the drill bit from over penetrating.

        Is this bumper available without a receiver? I already have a frame mounted hitch installed. I am interested in a bumper/tire carrier Combe. 1 answer
        Hello - the green jeep in the customer picture appears to have a 2 inch body lift. The bumper lines up with the body much lower than the product photos. Do you have a clear picture of the bumper only installed on a TJ with no tire carrier (with the tire on the stock tire carrier on the rear door?) I think that green one is deceiving with the lift. I have a 31 inch tire and would like to keep it on the stock door carrier, but don't know if it will fit with this bumper. I am trying to find a picture that will help me validate if it will work for me. Thanks! 1 answer

            Mean

            I think it's a great bumper and it lined right up on my 92 YJ that hasn't had a bumper in 27 years. Install took me twice as long because my right hand has limited function. My wife had to hold the bumper up for a few seconds till i got a couple bolts started. I had to drop the gas tank but it was a good opportunity to turn my 15 gal tank into a 20 gal tank (pull the vent tube out of the tank and trim it down to about 2 inches, then put it back in. It lets you fill the tank another 5 gallons but watch for spillage. I still don't top off though and I have no choice but to hold the pump or my license plate frame will catapult it). I had to drill into the frame but it was worth a Class III hitch.

            Quality bumper

            The bumper is well built and looks great. There was a little issue with the bolt holes matching up on my 1998 TJ, but not a huge deal. You will want some help holding the bumper in place while putting the bolts in!!!!

            Great fit!!

            This bumper is a great upgrade! Absolutely love the fit and finish! Can't wait to get the spare carrier to compliment it! Heavy duty for sure and will protect the rearend a lot better than factory. Getting the bolts installed wasn't as bad as some make it seem.

            Smittybilt XRC rear bumper

            Looks fantastic! Sturdy, great finish and simple installation. The only thing I wish is they could swap the 7/16” x 1” mounting bolts for 7/16” x 1-1/4” mounting bolts for the frame brackets to allow for easier/quicker installation.

            Excellent rear bumper

            Super happy with this bumper. Very stout and looks great. Don’t be fooled into thinking you can install this w/out dropping the fuel tank on a TJ. Loved the ET review and install video. She did a great job on this. However, notice why they didn’t show installing the inner two bolts on the drivers side? It’s because you cannot without dropping the tank. It’s no big deal and should not steer you away from this bumper at all. All those bolts are there for a reason. Just get it in your head you have to drop the tank prior and notch the tank skid plate to clear the receiver.

            Excellent Bumper

            The bumper was received in excellent condition. I clamped the templates onto the rear chassis where the new bumper will mount. This ensured no movement of the template while the hole was being drilled. A 7/16" drill bit is recommended which I used and then used a 1/2" reamer to open the hole so as to provide more tolerance which is needed when the 4 bolts are inserted into the back of the bumper. Since I have TJ Unlimited I did not have to drop the fuel tank. I had plenty of room for my socket wrenches.

            XRC Bumper

            Very easy install. Instructions were clear and concise. It is totally bolt on and very sturdy when installed. Only glitch was that there are two bolts that screw into the bumper from the bottom that were not the right size according to the supplied hardware and instructions. Maybe my 1990 YJ was unique but I just went to HomeDepot and picked up a couple of bolts. Overall appearance looks great, fit is spot on and has a heavy and durable powdercoat layer. I bought this was the XRC tire carrier and they both look and work great together.

            They make it almost impossible to get the bolts in from the back unless you pull the gas tank. But it looks great and is solid! It was worth every penny.

            Good Match for the XRC Front Bumper

            Nice looking bumper. Heavy duty, solid and well coated. Installation was a bit more than simple. It was not mentioned in the instructions that the fuel tank would need to be removed for access to tighten the center bolts in step 5 note... "difficult to install", impossible to tighten with fuel tank in place. Another point is, the fuel tank carrier lip sits over the back end of the integrated receiver hitch on the installed bumper which make re-installation of the fuel tank a little tricky. If you are not equipped with these skills, hire a professional for this installation.

            Bumper Review

            I love the bumpers. I purchased front and rear XRC bumpers. My one complaint is that the holes for the bolts to go through were just enough off that I had to do some drilling and grinding. Other than that I am very satisfied with my decision to buy them. My Jeep looks great!

            This is a great heavy-duty rear bumper. It was a bit of a bear to install but not too bad. You dont have to drop the fuel tank but I would suggest it just to make life alittle easier. I paired this bumper up with the matching tire carrier and do not regret it.
