The end result is a bumper that features entirely bolt-on construction, mounting holes for the removable 2″ hitch receiver, and excellent protection from trail obstacles, trees and incompetent motorists. The low profile design has also resulted in very reasonable weights of 130lbs for the steel bumper and 64lbs for the aluminum version.
The swing out tire carrier comes in either a single or dual sided configuration and is built to accept a tire up to 35″ in diameter. Both carriers include mounting brackets for a hilift jack and other recovery items. The dual swing out includes the hilift mount as well as a lockable jerry can holder designed to fit two 20L NATO style jerry cans. These carriers feature heavy duty double heim joint hinges, 2000lb toggle latches, T-handle spring pins, and a replaceable UHMW catch pad that provides secure, rattle free operation. The heim joints in conjunction with the toggle latch provide tons of adjustability, allowing for easy assembly and guaranteed alignment of the carrier latch. The single swing out add-on weighs 34lbs and the dual swing out add-on with gas can holder weighs 77lbs.
•DIY Weld-together kit – This bumper arrives as precision CNC-laser cut pieces that you then weld together (detailed assembly instructions included)
• Slim profile is engineered to provide maximum ground clearance and complement the factory body lines – trimming of stock plastic bumper required
• Heavy duty 3/16″ plate steel construction for maximum offroad strength and durability
• Optional 1/4″ 5052 aluminum construction for a lightweight yet very durable overlanding setup (66lb weight savings)
• Optional 2″ hitch receiver is contoured for a clean look and further clearance gains
• Mounts directly to frame using 14 factory mounting points – no drilling required.
• Reinforced 9/16″ thick clevis mounts allow the use of 3/4″ D-Rings
• All kits ship as clean, bare metal that is ready to weld out of the box – the Nitrogen laser cutting technology means no cutting edge oxidation and thus easier and stronger welds
• Optional Swing out tire carrier with hilift jack mount and locking dual NATO can holder
LED Light Option: The updated version of this bumper is sleeker and lower profile at the corners and can no longer fit the optional lights inside the bumper. Instead, the light option includes CNC laser cut tabs to mount the lights either on the swing outs or on top of the bumper.
