Product Information

MSRP: $820.00
Average Price: $552.08
Manufacturer: Jeeperman
Yes: 12 / No: 1

Even better than our previous models. Includes the towing frame reinforcement kit and black semi gloss Cardinal powdercoat standard. Fits 76' and newer CJ and Wrangler models.

Bumper features:
*3/16" thick, 2X4" 50 degree angle ended boxed steel bumper. No open back to collect mud and salt in the winter.
*1/4" thick A grade CNC 1" vertically adjustable brackets for body lift compensation. (shown on Wrangler with 1" body lift.
*Cardinal top quality semi gloss black powdercoat included. (Only select powdercoat option box below if custom color other than black is desired, contact us for selections)
*Flush 2" receiver so you won't drag it when running tougher trails with lock pin provisions located behind the bumper.(some hitches may need to be cut down or new lock pin hole drilled. Will accept Warn brand name receiver shackles and clevis or get our own Made In the USA shackles that fit perfectly and are stronger than the Warn offering.(D-Rings) Weakest point on this system has been tested and rated to 40,000 lbs. While we cannot rate your Jeep to pull that (2,000 lbs. for Wrangler and 3,500 lbs. for Unlimited) much, you can be assured that the bumper will far exceed the Jeep's capacity tow rating.
*Dual hidden safety chain bracket assembly accepts full one ton style chains, something most others don't on the bottom inside of the bumper.
*Radiused 3/4" thick CNC D Ring shackle mount tabs (not the 3 sided chopped ones some competitors offer) welded to the front, cut through the depth of the bumper and then welded again to the backside of the bumper and to make them completely overkill; we triple weld them to the crossmembers' 1/4" thick brackets for the utmost in strength.

Tire carrier features:
*NEW anodized dual 1/4" striker system (TM) with safety position Self-latching mechanism with adjustable striker just like the one Jeep uses on the tailgate but even stronger by 300%.(TM)
*Easy to operate press and release handle and endcap
*2.75" DOM tube machined hinge (TM) assembly rides on (2) 1.25" tapered roller bearings with sealed Zerk fitting for a smooth as glass operation, we have found none smoother.
*Horizontal, rattle free with three points of adjustment and dual adjustable isolation points. A third is used from the factory tailgate bushing. Built in lock provision Hi-Lift jack mount just in case someone else needs it.
*Big 2.75" billet disc with NEW flush stainless steel plated allen head bolt tops the hinge seal and gives a ultra high tech and professional look unmatched by other systems.
*Adjustable tailgate spacers and the OEM rubber stops relocate to prevent accidental contact of spare tire into Jeep body
*Spring loaded auto-locking stainless steel shaft system with triple grooved billet release handle to stop the bumper from swinging too far open or falling back on you. The open position clears the open lift glass even with all Jeeperman accessories. Some other brands won't allow you to open the lift glass without hitting their tire carrier!

Price: $0.01
Pros: Easily installed, Looks great, solid build, third brake light
Cons: Without extra bump stop mounted to tailgate the tire carrier rattles
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This came on my 1st Jeep that was totalled. Installed it on my 2nd Jeep. Strong, tough bumper. Drilled new hole in tailgate and mounted an original spare tire stop to mesh when carrier is closed to prevent rattling. Too bad Jeeperman is no longer making products.

Price: $800.00
Pros: Well designed, Strudy, locks itself open
Cons: None Noted
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I purchased this around Thanksgiving and recieved it Christmas Eve. The extra time was due to me getting the LJ version with the extensions on the sides. I was a little leery at first if this would take away any ground clearance but so far have noted none. I purchased this from Jeepin Outfitters and they provided top notch service. There was a mix up as far as which brake light I ordered and this was handled with the utmost professionalism and very quickly. I'd recommend the 1 inch LED light if you get this one. It fits perfectly and provides way more light than expected. ***Note: When hooking this one up White wire goes to black and black to white. For the life of me I couldn't figure out why I had voltage but no light. Felt kinda retarded when I called and they told me to switch the wires and it came right on. The bumper itself has plenty of attatchment points. The first time on the trail it was used for a mild recovery and it preformed great. Nothing else to say other than I feel my money was well spent. Great product and I hope both companies keep up the great service.

Comments: About as over built as my ARB. Single shear hinge which sucks, and no jerry can mounts. But has fittings for a 2" receiver, high lift mount and a CB antenna. As overpriced as an ARB but if you can find it cheap, well worth it.

Comments: I decided on the Jeeperman Swingaway having purchased Jeeperman products before, and was aware of the high quality of their products. I expected the same with the Swingaway, and while the desigh, strength, and toughness are top notch, I was rather disappointed with the quality of craftsmanship. I most likely just ended up with one of the very few bad units they produced, and unfortunately it wasn't limited to just one problem. First, my Swingaway arrived missing half of the necessary hardware for mounting the bumper to the frame. Then, while installing locking pin for the swingaway, I noticed the "cylinder" that the locking pin installs into wasn't perfectly round near the top, which made it difficult to install the brass bushing. I had to grind the inner area out to make the bushing fit. Then after installing the swingaway portion onto the bumper itself, I had to use all the supplied shims to raise the swingaway off that supporting "puck" that is mounted on the bumper. Even then it barely cleared and could probably use another shim or 2 or 3. Lastly, I called Jeeperman to ask if they could send out the missing parts to which they agreed, yet I never received them. It's not likely they got lost in the mail, so I'm more inclined to think they never bothered to send the parts. I ended up purchasing them at the local hardware store. When all is said and done, I am pleased with the quality of this product, but the oversight on(or just plain lack of) quality control made for a longer-than-anticipated and frustration-filled install. Like I said before, I probably just got one of the very few units that was flawed, so I'd still recommend it to fellow Jeepers.

Pros: stout, frame tie-in included, no rattles, fit perfect, easy secure latch
Cons: none
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I researched for several weeks before choosing the Jeeperman bumper. The reviews are what sold me. The bumper install was straight forward, everything fit like it should. The frame tie-ins are included, unlike other manufacturers. The latch is easy to use yet extremely tight. The quaility and strength of this bumper is top-notch. I carry a 35" tire and after 3000 miles of highway and offroad excursions, I still have no rattles. The other plus for me is they have additional items I can add later ie. gas can carriers, cargo rack. If you're looking for a strong, get the job done, maintenance free bumper, I highly recommend Jeeperman. It's worth the money.

Price: $820.00
Pros: super strong, great quality
Cons: none
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Jeeperman makes a stout bumper. Their tire carrier can hold a very large spare, although I only have a 32" tire. It is more expensive than a few alternatives, but after the quality reviews by several people who know fabrication, the Jeeperman will be the last bumper I ever need. The bumper is also highly customizable. The latch mechanism is solid. If I had another jeep, I would make its bumpers Jeeperman.
