Poison Spyder is proud to introduce the Second Generation of the wildly popular JK RockBrawler Rear Bumper with Tire Carrier. The initial release of this bumper enjoyed a huge response both in praise and in orders. But soon after its release we decided to begin working on a few revisions, which have all come together in the awesome new version of this bumper.
NEW MULTI-FACETED DESIGN
Perhaps the most noticable difference with the new bumper is its sleeker appearance. A high clearance, multi-faceted design provides even better departure angles and corner obstacle clearance. Not to mention the new bumper appears more streamlined, less boxy. Like the original, the new RockBrawler is constructed of CNC laser cut, brake-formed 3/16" plate steel. But the extra bends and facets actually lend even more strength to the bumper design.
INTEGRATED RECESSED REVERSE LIGHTS
One of the biggest feature requests since the initial release of the RockBrawler Rear Bumper has been to incorporate reverse lights. The new bumper does this, with signature Poison Spyder style and quality. The recessed light buckets accept a 2-1/2" clear LED backup lamp--the same backup lamps we've sold with our Crusher Corners. The recessed buckets protect them from the rocks and direct light rearward rather than into the bumper interior, the way some competitor's bracket-mounted lamps do. Customers may choose to wire them into the reverse light circuit, or wire them to a separate dash switch as a loading or utility light.
IMPROVED MOUNTING SYSTEM
The new RockBrawler Rear Bumper incorporates an extra set of mounting bolts, along the bottom of the bumper which fasten into the rear crossmember. Combined with the previously existing mounting flange bolts at either side, the bumper is now fastened by a total of 8 Grade 8 bolts, on three different planes to provide ultimate strength and rigidity to the mounted bumper.
In addition to these improvements, we've also streamlined the manufacturing process to ease product shortages. Our fixtures have been completely re-engineered to provide better alignment of components and more efficient manufacturing.
Pricing has been set at $100 higher than the old price, which comes to $1,197.00. Let's face it there's more work in this bumper than in the old one. That gets you the recessed light buckets, but the LED lamps themselves are sold separately. The photos above show a bumper without the recovery shackle tabs, but those are still available as a $49 option.
Base bumpers (without tire carriers) are available for ordering as of now, in stock and ready to ship. They can be ordered either directly from Poison Spyder
or through any of our Authorized Poison Spyder Dealers
. The version with Tire Carrier will be ready some time next week.
