Kennesaw Mountain Accesories rear bumper
Price: $749.00
Pros: Heavy Duty, lots of options, customizable, nice price
Cons: CB antenna mount and jack mount conflict
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Kenesaw Mountain Accesories www.kenmtn.com makes bumpers for several vehicles and during my search they had the best price with the most options that I wanted.

I started searching for the bumper I wanted and came across Kyles website. Noting the name, I had no idea they were from my hometown until I had really decided to buy from them.

I fired off an email which Kyle replied to the same day and was very helpful with my decisions for what options I wanted. He is an avid offroader and has plans to run the baja this year which I wish him luck with.

My bumper is very heavy guage steel (3/16 steel) and can be finished with paint, a textured finish or virgin steel.
I opted for:
1> rec tube (can be recessed or mounted on bottom)
2> Jack carrier
3> cb antenna mount
4> jerry can holder (makes the tire depth adjustable)
5> LED backup lights (recessed)

The original lead time was 3-4 weeks but I think with the tax season they got a bit swamped and it ended up being almost 8 weeks. This not withstanding, since I am an impatient person by nature, I would highly recommend their work.

Welds appear to be made by a very experienced welder, and while I am no welder myself, I think they will hold up quite well.

I had one issue that was quickly addressed... The mount for the hilift was put in the wrong location for a dual jerry can configuration. This posed no problem for me since I was able to simply drop in and Kyle (along with his assistant) made quick work of relocating it to the proper place.
Unfortunately this location forbids use of the CB antenna which I didnt notice until later. Like most of you I think the hilift is almost useless but I'd rather not need it and have it than need it and not have it. My former CB mount works just fine anyway, but it is something to note if you are going to order this bumper. I may forgo the jack in the future if I never use it.

The multicarrier is a frame mounted bumper vs a bumper plate mounted one. Tabs were welded to assist this mounting and I asked if these would be needed if it were shipped out and was told yes. So keep that in mind, although the tabs were only a couple of inches long.

The pivot is a very heavy duty, greased bearing design. I sat on it and it didnt even wince. Thats saying something. It swings effortlessly

The Reverse lights are bright since he is using LED's now. Kyle suggested and I may follow, that I change my brake lights to LED to match.

I opted for the jerry can mount because I trailer a 4-wheeler and jet ski's often enough to justify it. With this option the tire becomes adjustable. It actually mounts in it's own 2 inch rec, up high. This is unique I think and I feel it will come in handy in the future for bike racks etc...

Kyle seemed willing to make custom changes as needed so if you have something in mind I would ask about it.




some Things I would like to see,
a block for the pivot point to prevent swinging all the way around
relocate the hilift to a vertical mount so cb antenna can be used
option for a CO2 tank mount in place of one of the jerry can mounts

As you can see from the pics, I layed my CO2 tank down and strapped it in. I plan on asking Kyle what he would charge to weld a mounting plate for the tank mount.
