I purchased the unit last summer at 4 Wheel Parts. I have 35" KM2's and also carry an I-rack. The first unit they installed cracked but 4WD stepped up as usual and replaced it free of charge. I've had no problems since then and have traveled, and wheeled extensively without issue.

I love the look of the bumper, too. My wife is out driving it now otherwise I would post some shots for you.

I have not used it to tow or carry anything so I can't address that for you.

Best wishes,

Wahoo

I just ordered the classic for mine. Should be here in a week or so. Looks to be pretty solid unit and the classIII hitch is real what I needed. Hate the Mopar hitch that the Jeep came with. It hangs too low and even with a 2 inch lift I sometimes hit it. And I dont wheel hard.

I've had the XRC on my jeep for about 6 months no issues yet. Look on summitracing.com you might save some money. That's it with 33x12.5 on it.

Also a question for KNN, do you need to drop the tank completely out to drill and tap the additional holes?
