    DII rear bumper with integrated tire carrier, hitch and removable jerry can mount.

    This is a bumper we built for a customer that requested an integrated tire carrier, capable rear hitch and removable jerry can mount.

    Not really digging that. Most of it looks great, but then other parts just don't look as if they had much effort put into them.

    Hey, I like it Denny. I will see you at URE. My BottorF'ed rear bumper did not like my weight distributing hitch this past weekend traveling to MAR. The receiver mount in the bumper is a little indented now and the skid plate is not quite straight across. The piece of flat steel has a slight U shape to it from the downward pressure of the wt dist. hitch mount on the receiver that rest on the skid plate. I think I will be having the integrated rear skid plate cut from the steel plate that comes off the center of the rear bumper and have the bumper squared up, and go back to my factory hitch/mount. The rear skid plate you have that mounts to the factory hitch mount frame, does it bolt on or weld on? I think I will go with that for a rear skid plate. Shoot me a PM or email me what that will cost me, and if you can get me one delivered to URE. I will take a few pics of my bumper to send you for you opinion on what you see, and what you think I should do with it.

    I still want to get some sliders, but want them to be customized to include my SS factory nerfs. Yea, I know it is not normal, but if you can put two hi-lift jack points in the sliders, can't you make a mount point for the L bracket mounts to attach so I can keep my shiny SS nerfs? OK, I am not a hard core off-roader by any means, I want to keep a little of that bling.

    I like the integrated receiver hitch and how the bumper attaches to the stock receiver hitch mount points for additional strength. But a couple of questions. I have a rear ladder where the jerry can holder is located so how would one climb up to the roof rack? And are the bumper side wings reinforced for vertical as well as horizontal impacts?

    I'm always open to critiquing, put some effort into it.

    Tony, I'll take a look at your bumper when we get to URE and I'm sure we can come up with a good fix. I'll look at the SS parts also and see if we can come up with a solid way to add them to the sliders.

    Yubert, We looked at mounting the jerry can holder on the other side of the tire but decided against it for weight distribution issues. We can put it wherever you want it, just give us a shout. The side wings do not have any extra mounting on this paticular bumper. We have always done that in previous units, but found that when we added the lower bracing going to the factory hitch mount the bumper wings had no movement. We stood on the top edge of the wing and it just didn't move and I weigh 230 and Dane weighs in around 265. We would certainly add them if requested.

    Looking good Denny. I do wonder why the vertical member just inboard of the bearing is so tall? Was this added to accommodate future mods? I'll be starting my own rear design this fall. I'll keep you all updated on progress. You all sure are handy with that tubing bender.

    That is to mount a Hi-Lift jack using tube clamps.
