This is the GenRight Rear Bumper Plate for anyone who wants a high clearance rear bumper with the BEST possible departure angle, as it only sticks back 3/16" (the thickness of the material) behind the rear of the Jeep Wrangler TJ, LJ or YJ.
It is designed to beef-up your rear frame cross member AND the two rear body mounts. It can also be used as a high clearance bumper by itself because we have incorporated in 2 heavy duty shackle mounts for rear tow points.
Prefect for use with our "SWING OUT" style Tire Carriers RTC-3500 & RTC-3510 too!
Hi-Strength design is C channel shape fits over and under frame.
Laser cut and CNC formed for a perfect fit.
1" wide Shackle mounts fit 7/8" size D-rings (D-ring shackles sold separately REC-2102).
Shackle Mounts are fully welded from both sides.
Beefs-up rear section of the Jeep's frame.
Can be used by itself as a bumper for a better departure angle.
Bolt-on design is super strong as it ties into the top bottom and back of your Jeep's frame.
We also offer and recommend a Rear Frame to Bumper Tie-in kit for extra strength RBB-1100.
Installation requires, you remove the rear most body mounts and slip this plate under them.
Installation does NOT require lowering or removing the fuel tank to access mounting bolts, but it helps.
This style bumper plate will fit a YJ (and can be used as a rear bumper on the frame), but a swing out tire carrier can not be directly bolted onto a YJ as the gas filler is in the same location as the latch plate. So unless you have re-located the gas filler, that is why we recommend the swing down tire carrier (RTC-3400).
Is NOT a direct bolt-on for CJ's (please see part number RBB-1008).
