Price: $750.00
Pros: Look wicked and aggressive. Great quality and finish
Cons: Hardware Sucks and bolts for attaching the pin plate too long they would hit tail gate. The latch sassy looks good but hard to operate. Good luck on getting the inner bolts in the four holes u gotta drill. No way without dropping gas tank
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Pretty good stuff but poor instruction. No mention about having to drop gas tank yo install inner bolts

Price: $1.00
Pros: holds the tire, greasable hinge.
Cons: Rattles, rusted out and broke.
Recommended? No

Comments: I have no idea what this cost, the PO installed it. It works well but rattled incessantly until my GF backed into a rock at Rausch and broke the handle off. The part was back ordered so I used a strap to keep it on, which solved the rattle.

Anyway, it is 3-5 years old now, my guess since I don't know when the PO bought it and it broke yesterday. Bad weld, bad metal, or just rust? Don't know. Could have been deadly if I hadn't noticed it.

Comments: Very sturdy bumper. Love how it looks. Holds my 35" spare tire great. Only thing was I had to drop the gas tank to install but it really wasn't that big of a deal. Definitely would recommend.

Price: $729.99
Pros: great looking, functional, recovery shackle points built in, low profile, doesn't affect rear approach, class 3 receiver built in
Cons: tire swing is squeaky! it takes a few retorques to get the noise to finally stop.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The smitty's are very nice and functional bumpers. i've got the front and rear xrc's on my yj. they are low profile, fairly narrow, and extremely functional. like i said above - the width and height combined with how close to the body the bumpers mount make for a great bumper! i was used to scrubbing the hoops whenever i wheeled, and this rear rarely ever touches.

Price: $600.00
Pros: Tough Class 3 receiver, with safety chain loops
Cons: expensive No location for trailer wiring mount many locations to hold snow/ mud
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Great bumper. Originally received bumper_section that needed to be RMA'd, Smittybilt had great customer Service. Replacement sent ASAP. Replacement bumper and carrier are great. Love the look, little bit of wrap around on corners is nice.

kinda wish receiver was higher up/ integrated into main bumper sections; can drag a bit when offroading.

Price: $429.99
Pros: looks really great and feels tough
Cons: powder coat is a bit weak and bolt holes will rust inside
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I think this looks really great and feels tough. The powder coat is a bit weak and bolt holes will rust inside unless you hit them with a little rustoleum. The tire swing is very strong but there was a little grinding that had to be done on one of the welds so it would open correctly. I would buy this again except this time I would skip the little third brake light extender and mount a replacement LED in the inside of the spare (which is what I did later).

Pros: Solid construction -- adjustability of the tire carrier
Cons: None yet
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I bought the bumber first and was impressed, so I got the swing-away carrier as well. So far I'm very impressed with this bumper.

Pros: Awesome finish. Good looking, supports the tire as promised
Cons: Install needs 2 persons. In a YJ you have to drill the chassis for the supports.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: well, it looks good. Instructions are kinda vague, you mostly have to do all the work by deduction. A lot of spare nuts, washers, etc....

Pros: Heavy duty.
Cons: Tough to latch with the 37" spare.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: It's a heavy bumper. Really heavy. The latch is tough to get lined up with the 37" spare on it. This is my 2nd XRC rear bumper - the tire carrier snapped off the first. You can order the tire carrier only but save your hardware from the first one. When you order a replacement tire carrier, you literally get just the tire carrier. Nothing else.

Pros: Tough look, nice upgrade from stock, stalky
Cons: rattles a bit, pricey
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Good product that holds up well. You need to work with it a little bit when installing the tire swing because the directions are ambiguous. All in all I'm happy with my decision

Price: $150.00
Pros: It carries an oversized spare, and protects the back of my Jeep.
Cons: Little more of a difficult fit than the front. Tire swing can sag over time. Swing latch was loose from the factory
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The tire swing is the main issue with this bumper. It can sag over time, so you have to readjust it. The latch fit loose, but I fixed it by placing a few machine washer between the rubber "spring" and the carrier. Fits nice and tight now. The corners of the bumper are REALLY close to the bottom edge of the rear corners of the tub. The bumper can hit the tub if it gets hung up on a rock.
