A Tube Bumper is a timeless classic look, a custom touch that never goes out of style. But all Tube Bumpers are not created equal. Rugged Ridge starts with huge 3" tubes that are bent to the chosen shape and welded together. But then Rugged Ridge grinds all of those welds smooth for a perfect appearance. Grinding the welds also virtually eliminates small weld "pockets" that seldom get full paint coverage and so tend to rust over time. No other tubular bumper manufacturer takes the time to do this. These bumpers also feature welded, not plastic end caps. No more will you have to replace lost end caps after a day of 4-wheeling. Rugged Ridge knows many Jeep owners run tires that are taller than stock, so they made the rear bumper opening 17" wide to accommodate up to a 31" tire on the factory spare tire mount.
The 3" Tube Rear Bumper is available without a hitch, with an integrated hitch, or with a frame-mounted hitch. The integrated hitch is not tow rated, but is ideal for carrying hitch mounted accessories not weighing more than 200 lbs. The frame-mounted hitch can be used for lightweight towing (2000 lb. towing weight, 200 lb. tongue weight capacity). An optional frame mounted hitch is available for the 3" Tube Rear Bumpers without a hitch and this hitch is also recommended for lightweight towing (2000 lb. towing weight, 200 lb. tongue weight capacity).
The 3" Tube Rear Bumpers are available in black, textured black, titanium and stainless steel. Painted finishes are powder coated to resist rust and corrosion. Stainless steel bumpers are polished to a mirror finish.
Each bumper comes complete with mounting hardware and detailed instructions. An optional license plate bracket is also available. All products are backed by a 5-year limited warranty.
