I'm running the Rugged Ridge read XHD bumper. It's black powder coated steel with 2 included XL d-ring type recovery points. The bumper weighs about 95lbs. The install was actually very simple and took about an hour including removing the factory bumper. I got it from autoanything .com for $465.00 shipped. So far I love it. I'm running 33's and decided to stay with the factory spare holder (for now) but may buy the spare carrier for the bumper up the road.

I'm currently running a Smittybilt Oversize tire carrier w/ a 35" spare on it. Working okay for now, but probably not a good long-term solution. Hence, the OR-FAB.
Here's a link:

I kinda included my rear in the Huge Front Bumper Review, but here's the info again, for those just looking for rear bumpers.
Mine's the Rampage Recovery bumper. I wanted a one-piece bumper to minimize areas where road salt could get into it in the winter and start chowing down. Also something with shackles that would stand up to towing/recovery needs.
Both front and rear are all steel.
The rear weighs about 95 lbs. Also has two recovery points with d-rings. Only downside to the rear is that there's no tire carrier. But I'm planning on adding an OR-FAB carrier in the Spring, so didn't need one built into the bumper.
I bought the powdercoated black version. They also come in semi-gloss.
They were shockingly easy to install. If you've got somebody to help hold em in place while you start a couple bolts, you can handle this job.
No grinding and no cussing was necessary.
Amazon had the best price on these bumpers by a wide margin. Plus free shipping. Front was $480 and change. Rear was more (oddly) at $520.
An added bonus (for me) were the cutouts for fog lights in the rear. I installed a set of Rampage rear fogs ($70, iirc) and ran the wires directly to my sPOD.
I'm happy all the way around.

Anyone wanna do a review of their rear bumpers? or a review of a bumper mod gone bad?

Huge rear bumper review thread
Ok, since someone on another thread suggested something like this:
Here are the rules:
1. post a picture of YOUR after market bumper after install (if possible, a before install picture of your Jeep as well)
2. list suspension mods already existing on your rig
3. intended use (rock crawling, DD, Mudding, light trail, etc)
4. list the following:
weight of bumper
ease of installation
All bumper mods welcome
