This bumper's 2-piece design, heavy-duty steel construction and powder coated finish ensures it can take whatever the trail can dish out. Internal sub-frames mount behind the bumper and provide the additional strength needed in the D-ring mounting area. Two D-rings and the mounting hardware are included. All necessary hardware and complete instructions are included to guide you through an easy bumper installation.

The heavy-duty construction enables the carrier to handle up to a 35" tall tire. The carrier comes with all necessary hardware and complete instructions. The optional tire carrier linkage makes tailgate opening easier with the tire carrier installed.
The optional tow hitch receiver is designed for light duty towing, 2000 lbs. towing weight and 200 lb. tongue weight capacity. Complete instructions come with the tow hitch receiver, to guide you through an easy installation using the included hardware.
