Olympic 4X4 - 500 series Rock Bumper w/ Tuff n EZ Tire Carrier

Olympic 4x4's Bumper and tire carrier combo for the TJ/LJ



The bumper sits very close to the frame giving you a great departure angle and good protection of the rear of your Jeep. The bumper also features a 2" receiver that is rated for towing! I found this to be a very difficult feature to find in other bumpers I was looking at.



The Tuff n EZ Tire Carrier holds your full size spare close to the back of your Jeep at a slight angle which helps your departure angle. The spare is also not held too high so you get good visibility out of your rear window.

The claim to fame on this tire carrier is the fact that it opens with your tailgate! It is super easy to swing open and closed even while holding tools or anything else you may be getting out of the rear of your jeep.



When traveling the freeways of SoCal (which are expansion joint concrete and very bumpy) the tire is very stable and does not bounce around, which I have experienced with other tire carriers.

I just installed this and as I use it and abuse it I will post a follow up.

It looks to be made of a high quality steel, although it has a poor design. with a 32" tire on, you can only swing it open 75% of the way because the tire hits the tail light. This causes an even more inconvenience because now you can only open the tailgate 50% of the way. Very poor design!
