Rampage Bumper

I got the Rampage bumper and Swing Away tire carrier. I'm running 35's so I needed something to support the weight. installation was somewhat easy, it was much easier to have 2 people to mount the bumper. only some minor issues with having to drill new holes to mount and then having some of the mounting bolts in asinine places, but what else is new on a jeep the tire swings away great and the weight is now fully supported on my bumper. before i bought this i had the Best Top oversize tire carrier. i recently repainted it with anti-rust. it holds up to a 35' tire but to be honest my 35 was too heavy for it, so if anyone wants it for their 33's let me know.


There hitch is for recovery only, and they sell lights to fit in the pre-fab holes. Also came with D-rings but i keep them in the jeep so they dont get stolen.


This is the old best top carrier. anyone want it?

thanks! it adds some clearance in the back and is much sturdier than the stock one. rampage sells light kits for $100 that fit the holes, im thinkin of makin a trip to walmart or autozone and seein if i can modify some $20 fog lights to fit there. the best top carrier goes for $300 new i think, i cant find it in quadratec anymore, i dunno if they stopped selling it or not.

I think those lights are so cool. How would you have them set up? For back up lights or just on a switch so you can turn them on whenever or what?

id put in a fog pattern light, wire it up to a switch on my dash so i can flick them on anytime i need. im hopin i can set the lights back a little in the bumper so if somethin or someone hits the bumper it wont smack the lights.

Nice Bumper, to bad you're so far away I'd take that old carrier off your hands.
If you loctite or spray paint the threads of the d-ring pins and the use a wrench to cinch it down real tight that will lock up those d-rings if you want to leave them on. Granted someone would have to have a Big flippin wrench to remove them but it sure slows the non-tooled up thieves down.
