Replacing the amazing, high-quality plastic bumper on our JK... Hate to get rid of it, but...we must. So, looking around for a JK Rubicon or after-market rear steel bumper...

There are LOTS of aftermarket bumpers. Find one you like, look at reviews on it, and make sure it doesn't rattle. If you plan to get a tire carrier as well make sure it is rated to carry your end goal tire size. JCR Offroad has nice bumpers that seem reasonably priced.

My $0.02!

Next sat you can check out mine and see if it's something you'd like.

It's under 1000 including the tire carrier, doesn't rattle and holds at least a 40" tire, maybe larger...

My front and rear are JCR. The only drawback is all their stuff comes unfinished. I saw that as plus though due to at least a percieved cost saving and the fact that I could pick my finish and the inevitable touch ups are easy. Their stuff is super stout and well-designed for approach and departure angles. They are in Michigan (not China) and shipping is free.

There are lots of different style so you'll need to decide what interests you with rear tire coverage, spindle design. Carrier/no-carrier, etc.

Ug! https://posse4x4.org/wp-content/sp-resources/forum-smileys/Crying2.png This started as a joke for Guy. When we dented out POS factory bumper, we were spending so much on the Jeep with the gearing, skid plates, etc he said a new, decent bumper would be way down the line and with all the mods going on in the club we could have "unlimited" POS bumpers. I mean who in their right mind wants one of those things? https://posse4x4.org/wp-content/sp-resources/forum-smileys/Vomit.png But since you are such a nice guy, and remembered this, as soon as he read your offer he jumped at the chance to fill up the garage with yet another POS. (Little does he know I know my way around a SawsAll very well!! https://posse4x4.org/wp-content/sp-resources/forum-smileys/Devil.png) So, to answer your question, "yes, we will take your bumper"... https://posse4x4.org/wp-content/sp-resources/forum-smileys/StraightFace.png

P.S. We are very excited to see all you've done to your rig. clap
