GSI Jeep Wrangler Rear Bumper

Here is a quick review of the GSI Jeep Wrangler Rear Bumper with Tire Carrier installed on a 2011 2 Door Jeep Wrangler JK.   Buy the inexpensive GSI bumper on Amazon
You will not find a cheaper bumper and tire carrier for a JK than this unless you hit the used market.  So far, I am really impressed with the GSI Jeep Wrangler bumper with tire carrier. 

  1. GSI Bumper Shipping was relatively prompt.  Received within 8 days.
  2. Packaged well in two boxes, one for the GSI bumper, one for the GSI tire carrier.
  3. Install was straight forward
  4. Build quality of the GSI bumper, on the surface, seems solid.  Heavy duty, good paint, no scratches, lenses for LEDs all lit, etc.
  5. The locking latch is a little difficult (tight to operate) with not enough clearance.  I'm hoping this loosens up in time.
  6. If you don't have a trailer harness hitch, you need to splice into your turn signals.  Do yourself a favor and buy this trailer harness tap kit first around $20:
Overall, yes, I would recommend the GSI Jeep Wrangler Rear Bumper with Tire Carrier.  Let's see how it holds up with time.
