X2 on the Barricade
We have had great reviews on both bumpers. The Barricade bumper is 3/16" steel which is plenty strong and will be a little weight savings over the 1/4" steel of the Smittybilt. The Barricade includes the d-rings in the box with the bumper, where you would have to get them separately with the Smittybilt. The Smittybilt uses a linch pin while the Barricade has a latch with a handle for opening and closing the tire carrier. The Barricade can hold up to a 37" tire where the Smittybilt is rated for up to a 35".
I just wanted to highlight a couple of the differences between the two bumpers, but you really can't wrong with a solid bumper/tire carrier combination. Let me know if you have any questions at all!
