Exclamation JK Rear Bumper Roundup

Folks I been wanting to install the rear bumper for a while and since I have joined the 37" Tyres family the need for rear bumper has become essential. Also I was witing for the AEV rear bar. Since its out I took time to compile all the rear bumpers except few which I absolutey hate but the list is almost complete.

Would like to know your choice and why.

Here we go:

AEV


ARB


Expedition One


Fab Four 1


Fab Four 2


Hanson 1


Hanson 2


HighRock


KC Hillite


LoD


Mountain OffRoad


OR Fab


Olympic


PureJeep


Rampage


Olympic 2


Red Rock


Rock Hard


Rugged Ridge


ShrockWorks

I have the ARB bar, mainly because it came with the vehicle. I would probably still choose it though even if they others were freely-available in Oz. I don't think you can argue that any of the other bars have as clean lines and integrate so neatly with the vehicle as the ARB does, with perhaps the exception of the Shockworks one.

Warn would be my first choice coz I love their design.It's simple, strong, well built and has a great departure angle.

Expedition one is another great design, simple and strong.It also looks fantastic on that Jeep green JK with the twin pipes out the back Oh yeah

Hanson 2 and LoD is also like for the same reasons as above.I particularly like the LoD coz of the built in lights.They would be very handy on a night run

Great job by the way, Zak

AEV, it's sexy and practical... I'm really impressed with most of AEV's stuff actually, they mix sexy with awesome practicality.

Shrockworks would have to be my second favourite, same reasons.

Also pretty impressed by the LOD.

Olympic with rear winch would be pretty frikken sweet! But that's a lot of weight out back! I'd be more inclined to have a winch with a tow hitch attached with receivers front and rear so you can winch both ways and only carry one winch (added bonus that when it's not in use it's weight is in the middle of the vehicle not on an end).

I don't like the Hanson, although their quality is great and they're strong as F, I think their products are too big.

Should have the WARN rear bar/carrier completely in place by the end of tomorrow - finally! It's been a bit of a saga with the latest being that where the spare goes on the carrier it wasn't deep enough to take a stock tyre/rim!!! Crazy! So that little issue should be sorted out tomorrow, which is just as well since the spare is taking up far too much room in the boot and I head off for a week camping on Friday...

Will put up pics to show what I'm talking about once it's all sorted. Should all be worth it though - it's a damn solid bar and means if (when) I go to bigger tyres, I don't have to worry about whether the spare will fit.
