Cool Jeep XJ Rear Tire Carrier Bumper ONLY $700!!!

We now offer a rear tire carrier bumper for the Jeep XJ's

Heavy Duty construction, with built in receiver hitch for towing / recovery
**This will replace your stock / aftermarket receiver hitch**

Ties into the "frame" via 14 Bolts.

1 3/4" Tube work

Tire carrier accepts anything from a stock tire up to a 35" Tire and drops down to allow access to the hatch.

Rear Quarters are built for a Cut N Fold, however, By simply cutting the lower bar flush with the top via skill saw, sawzall, bandsaw, port-a-band, or I can do it if requested, it can be used with the stock quarters.

These fit 84-96 XJ's, I AM CURRENTLY LOOKING FOR SOMEONE WITH A 97-01 TO TEST FIT ONE ON.

These are available for $700 + shipping, Thats painted with black truck bed liner, all hardware needed to install is included.

Local pickup welcome at no additional charge, Will also deliver / meetup within reason for fuel costs.

The lead time on these bumpers is 2+ weeks as I build them as orders come in.

Looking forward to you making it for 97 and up. Do you have any side pics of it on the jeep?

Thanks, glad you like it. Keep checking back as I will offer one for the 97-01's within the next couple of months.

Thanks for the interest, but someone has already volunteered their 97 for the task. I will let you know if anything changes though.

Looks Good! I have been looking for a nice Fold Down Tire Carrier for the XJ but couldn't find one, let alone one that I like. I finally just gave up and went about designing and building my own. Had mine not been about 90% complete I probably would have held out for the 97+ version of yours.

Two things you may want to include for the 97+. It looks like your photo has a yellow towel hanging over the licnese plate. Is there a license plate bracket and light on the bumper? Also it looks like there is receiver Hitch integrated into the bumper. Are there tow points as well for a Clevis or would you have to put a pin through the receiver hitch to pull from the rear?

Other than that, looks really good. Hopefully you find lots of buyers.

Thanks Cerveja

You made some valid points. Yes there is a license plate under that towel. The license plate was more of an after thought (but then again that was the first one I made so it was still a bit of a learning experience) The new ones will have an integrated license plate mount / light on the tire carrier itself.

As per the tow point deal, I do not include clevis mounts on the ones I sell regularly (my site / eBay) so the best route to go would be a simple clevis mount receiver hitch to go in the receiver tube. However, I could add two on each side if requested at an additional cost. It has to be add' while the bumper is being built. I cannot go back and add them after it has been built.

Looks pretty cool. You just pull the pins and it drops down? Is there a benefit of the drop down style over the swing away? Can you post a pic of the tire holder lowered?

Yep you pull the two top pins and it drops down, I had a customer request one that dropped down, I liked the way it turned down so I decided to continue building the design.

Best one I can find at the moment, I will try to get some better ones of it on the Jeep

It never fails, whenever I need to access the liftgate with a swing-away tire carrier, I am always parked on just enough side angle that it swings into me and wedges me up against the back of the truck, or alternately flies open and swings out until it chrashes into something......usually something expensive....Plus loading a heavy *** 30+ inch tire onto a center pin or a couple of lug studs at chest height is a pain in the neck.

The downfall of a fold-down is it's always in the way when loading or unloading the back of the truck. You have to step over it or around it to get in the back. But loading the tire is easy, roll it over, flop it down, tighten the straps or bolt it in place. Plus it makes for an instant table surface when properly propped up and leveled.
