Smittybilt XRC Atlas Rear Bumper

I just received the 2013 4wd.com catalog and they have the new Smittybilt XRC Atlas Rear Bumper and it is bad ***. However, no one has them on their sites including 4wd.com. Looks like I'll have to call tomorrow to find out the price. Anyone else seen this thing and what do you think about it? Next on my list is a rear bumper and tire carrier but this might set me back more than I've figured on.

that looks great, not to big on how far the tire sticks out, but it looks amazing.

I'd wait and see it in person. I have found most of their products to be low quality.

Talked to Smittybilt this morning and they said the bumper should be available to order in mid-March. MSRP should be $999.99

waiting patiently

I gatta agree with whoever said Smittybilt is stepping up their game....

Looks to be a completely original design (not copying like usual) with some really neat unique features. Good for them!

I'm sure the powdercoating will suck, as with all their products, but this is still something I'd be interested in.

They've really been charging ahead with JK products. Our front bumper is Smittybilt because it was one of the only designs I liked at the time. As much as I was embarrassed to have a Smittybilt product on our JK, I may be adding another.....
