Jeep WJ Grand Cherokee Rear Bumper With Tire Carrier
Our Bumper was designed to allow for the best approach and departure angles available in ANY aftermarket Grand Cherokee bumper. It mounts the tire in your natural blind-spot, on the driver's side, so that you can see out the rear view mirror, and over your right shoulder. On other brands that put the carrier in the middle or to the right of the rear window, vision out the back is mostly impossible. In addition, the tire carrier itself can very easily be removed from the bumper if you wanted to.
We use a super strong twin 3/4" Heim joint sysytem. Each joint has over 12,000 lbs. of radial load capability, and there are two, so that's 24,000 lbs. total. You can fine-tune the height of the carrier up and down by threading the heim joint in and out, and they are easy to replace if they wear out over time. The latch uses an easy-to-open lever and a patented cam-latch, which puts constant tension on the latch and hasp assembly completely eliminating rattles from your carrier (which is nice when driving down a washboard road with the weight of a 35" tire on a steel wheel). As for strength, you can actually lift the entire rear end of the Jeep off the ground with a forklift from OUR tire carrier...now that's strong!**Please Note: Due to Protofab's heavy volume, allow 6-8 weeks between order and ship times. (Mike's guys are working as fast as they can on filling orders). Also, due to past damage to the finish during the motor freight process, all bumpers are shipped non-painted BARE STEEL.
