The RockBrawler II Rear Bumper
is the latest evolution in JK rear bumpers, incorporating many features requested by customers, and product improvements born of real world use and testing of the original RockBrawler. This bumper combines the best features to maximize performance on the toughest trails with some of the more refined traits not normally needed on a dedicated rock crawler. Its most prominent feature is the all new RockBrawler II Tire Carrier, which connects to the tailgate for easy, single-action opening. It's also slightly wider and deeper than the original RockBrawler for increased corner protection, and features an integrated hitch.
The RockBrawler II Spare Tire Carrier's Single-Action-Opening feature is a huge convenience for when you're trying to open the tailgate and tire carrier with one hand, when you've got an armload of gear or groceries in the other. Rather than latching to itself, the RockBrawler II tire carrier is tethered to the tailgate so that they open and close in tandem. A custom designed tie-rod assembly, bumper mechanism and Tramp Stamp keep the two pieces perfectly aligned when open, but tight and rattle-free when closed.
The RockBrawler II Spare Tire Carrier is fabricated entirely from CNC laser cut, precision brake-formed plate steel. The pieces are expertly welded together in a specially designed assembly fixture to ensure consistent fit and quality. A web gusset design is cut into the corner of the tire carrier to provide a little Poison Spyder flare. The RockBrawler II Tire Carrier uses the same high quality, extremely heavy duty hinge/spindle assembly that is used on the original RockBrawler Tire Carrier, featuring a CNC precision machined spindle, Timken tapered roller bearings, and CNC machined billet cap.
Like the original RockBrawler Rear Bumper, the RockBrawler II bumper shell is fabricated from CNC laser cut, brake-formed 3/16" plate steel. The RockBrawler II Rear Bumper's high clearance, multi-faceted design provides the best possible departure angles and corner obstacle clearance. The RockBrawler II Rear Bumper is slightly wider and deeper (front to back), when compared to the original RockBrawler Rear Bumper.
The integrated hitch receiver accepts standard 2" hitches and recovery accessories. It is built in to the structure of the RockBrawler™ II Rear Bumper in order to provide a higher clearance, tougher hitch that's there when you need it, but tucked up higher out of the way for better clearance and departure angles on the trail. Includes integrated safety chain loops. IMPORTANT: The integrated hitch receiver is not rated for towing. It is intended as a recovery attachment point.
Like the original RockBrawler Rear Bumper, the RockBrawler II features recessed backup lamp buckets made to accept a pair of 2-1/2" round LED lamps. The RockBrawler II also features an improved mounting system, with an adjustable flange on one side to accommodate the slight manufacturing variances in Jeep frames that we've seen over the years, which could sometimes make mounting the original RockBrawler bumper a little tricky. Another feature of the RockBrawler II is that it does not require the relocation of the license plate, as is the case with the original RockBrawler. But we do provide the bracket for mounting the license plate on the spare tire carrier, if the installer chooses to do so. And one more difference from the original RockBrawler is that the 1" thick CNC machined high clearance recovery shackle tabs are now standard equipment
on the RockBrawler II.
