Rock Hard 4x4 is very proud to offer the strongest and most durable Rear Bumper and Tire Carrier that comes fully loaded, standard.
The RH4x4 Rear Bumper and Tire Carrier is one of our favorite products. Not only is it the only rear bumper with integrated tire carrier made out of 1/4" thick plate steel, it's also the easiest to live with. We've seen people struggle to open or close their tire carrier cage and thought, "that's not the way it has to be". Our proprietary dual-stage latching mechanism and "pre-load" design prevent vibration and wobbling to help ensure whether you are on the toughest off road trail or loading gear into the back of your Jeep.
Our Rear Bumpers are full width to protect your vulnerable corner panels and tail gates. With end plates designed to provide maximum departure angle and clearance, our design prevents you from getting "hung up" on tough trails and sharp, off camber turns. Plus, with oversized tires, rubbing and tire gouging is never a concern. The bottom plate of our bumper hugs the rear cross member behind your Jeep for more ground clearance than even some competition bumper designs.
Bumper with Tire carrier Weight: 150 lbs.
Strength and Function
Your rear bumper has the potential to take more abuse than any other body armor on your Jeep. Whether its on road traffic collisions or off road rock damage, you need some serious armor to keep you safe. 1/4" thick plate steel is the ultimate armor to protect your vulnerable rear corners, tailgate, and muffler or fuel tank. High clearance corners, user friendly "1-finger operation" latch, and a weather resistance finish make this rear bumper combo a no brainer.
The secret to our tire carrier's success is our in house designed and constructed hub assembly. Instead of a single bearing system like competing models, we use a dual bearing and race combo for smooth and consistently reliable operation. See our components section below for complete details.
All this strength adds up to one of the best spare tire size carrying capacities on the market: a massive 40" tire!
With the addition of our rear bumper comes the opportunity to also protect your exposed and critical muffler. Our bolt-on Muffler Shield mounts to existing holes on our rear bumper giving you a plate of solid 3/16" steel armor. Once your muffler goes your trip is over and it's time to call a tow rig. This simple addition to your RH4x4 rear bumper gives you peace of mind and increased capability.
Ease of Installation
It does not take a PhD to install the best rear bumper and tire carrier on the market. No welding is required and the truly bolt on design makes your garage your own off road shop.
RH4x4 Rear Bumpers and Tire Carriers are very recognizable for two major reasons: owners bragging about how durable it is and it's clean, functional design. What makes up a RH4x4 Rear Bumper and Tire Carrier is what makes it so strong.
