    Default Shrock Full Rear Bump & Tire Carrier

    After much anticipation the new Shrockworks full width rear bumper / tire carrier arrived. Very well packaged. Installation was not too bad but an extra set of hands is nice to have.

    This will not be much of a "how to" due to not having a decent camera available, all I had was my phone so just before / after pics.

    The instructions had quite a few holes, most of it was there but there could have been a few more details in order to avoid some aggravation.

    The bumper install was very simple - getting the old one off was as easy as removing the small handful of mounting bolts and tossing that POS to the curb. You will also need to remove the stock mounting bracket. The instructions for the bumper install were very easy to follow. You have to install the lights before you mount the bumper or you will have to take it off in order to get to them. There is also a square bushing that sits under the latch that is best installed before mounting the bumper for the same reason as the lights.

    Mounting the tire swing was very simple. I gave everything some red threadlock and managed to get a bunch on myself as usual....

    The part that was a PITA was the jerry can mounts and rubi rack. There were no instructions for the rack but easy enough to figure out with a little thinking. One point of advice would be to get all the bolts started but don't tighten anything to make sure that you can align everything and in case you need to move something. If you are going to only use the jerry can mounts then you can use any of the holes on the diagonal beams, making a tight fit against the tire. If you are going to use the rubi rack then the jerry can mounts must go in the lower most holes. Added some threadlock to all the bolts on the can mounts and rubi rack as well.

    Another thing to note is that this thing is very heavy. The bumper/swing is about 200#, add in the wheel and tire (17" 35s), the can mounts and rubi rack are another 50# then add in the jerry cans and fuel, Hi-Lift... then whatever you put in the rubi rack. Not sure how much lift I will lose due to droop... we shall see.

    Shrock gets an A+ for design and quality, worth the wait. The instructions get a C....

    Will do.... and it will get abused. The stocker was hanging on by a thread. The powdercoat is standard semi gloss black making it easy to touch up once it gets banged around.... nice forethought on Shrocks part

    man that is one mean looking bumper!

    might suggest flipping the HLJ lift foot up so it does not obstruct the look angle of your left rear break light.......it will make it easier to see your break lights and not give a cop a reason to pull you over. [maybe it does not block it at all...it just looks that way in the pic]

    Austere Mobility in a '99 TJ Sport with a few bells and whistles

    The bravest of all Spartans was Dienekes. It is said that on the eve of battle, he was told by a native of Trachis that “the Persian archers were so numerous that, when they fire their volleys, the mass of arrows will block out the sun.”

    Dienekes, however, quite undaunted by this prospect, remarked with a laugh, “Good. Then we’ll fight in the shade!”

    You are correct.. that was one thing that kicked my butt a little. With the can mounts there is only a little room for the HiLift, I can't reverse it with the handle on because there is not enough clearance... I will fool with it some more tomorrow... might end up taking the base off to keep someone from stealing it anyway... throw it back on when I hit the trail.
