I think I paid something like $550 or $600 two years ago. That's sure a pretty steady climb....

Tufftoy $400 custom fabricated and powerdercoated. I would look into having one made!

skeeter I used to build rails from the ground up. there's nothing in that that can't be done in a well equipped shop in a few hours.
I realize they have r and d time and tooling to pay for but I still believe $800 for a tubular rack is insane

If I had a decent tubing bender and about $80 worth of material I could make one in less than a day and I'm no professional fabricator.
If you saw what went into the parts you can't see from the outside, I don't think you'd be so quick to say that.

DUCKIT Check out............. All J PRODUCTS / BOULDERBARS.COM
It goes not rattle, move, or make any noise what so ever, very clean set up
that is a 35" tire and you can still see out back window when nothing is in rack

Ripcord I am also in the market for one of these in the near future but have yet to purchase one.

I must say tho after shopping around looking at many different types/setups I think Jerry has sold me on the orfab. I really like the fact it has 2 hinge points and is independent of the rear bumper which is a big plus to me. It also comes set for anything you want to add, Jerry cans, High Lift, Antenna ect. My vote is for the orfab!

Get what you want/like tho, that is one thing I love about jeeps there are so many ways to make each one different.
08-10-2008 08:39 PM
whiteyj Another OR Fab vote. The best part is it's independant of the bumper. Go pick the bumper you want. But the tire carrier has the spare, 2 Jerry cans, a high lift and an antenna all in a solid package.
08-10-2008 05:40 PM
SurfnSnow Another vote for Rockhard4x4. It's solid, well designed, and after a year with it on trail runs where it got its share of bumps and grinds from the rocks, its still as solid as the day I put it on. Also Lewis (or Louie) the owner answered the call when I called in my order and he's one of the coolest guys you'll ever talk to.

Schmo X2 on the RockHard4x4 bumper/tire carrier. I love mine . . . it's got it all and what it doesn't come with, you can add on when you need it. Comes with the highlift and CB antenna mounts, D-Ring tabs, and a tow rated hitch . . . and then you can add the Jerry can holders and basket if you'd like. I even fabed up a shovel mount right behind the spare. It holds up to a 37 or 38 and is sturdy . . . doesn't rattle or vibe at all. And it has a simple slam shut latch with a safety double latching mechanism (saved me once!) and a lock open pin. Other than the shovel holder that I added, the thing has got it all.

P.S. - RockHard4x4 - contact me if you'd like to buy my shovel holder design . . . it's sweet!!!

wallybloke I did a lot of research to get the best bang for the buck before I bought mine. I found a guy on ebay (Ground Pounder Fab) that builds what I think is the best bumper for the money. He has a bunch of options you can add and he is really easy to deal with. The clevis mounts go all the way through the bumper and are welded on both sides. He has frame tie-in brackets that come with the bumper. The quality is top notch and his price is reasonable. http://stores.ebay.com/Ground-Pounder-Fab

JEEPNICK here is a picture of my rock hard 4x4 with hi lift!

Keagan26 What do you all think of the nates 4x4 bumper and tire carrier?
08-04-2008 04:10 PM
Jerry Bransford The one product I'd recommend is Off-Road Fabricator's spare tire carrier which does not use the bumper at all. So you can choose whatever bumper you want, the ORF spare tire carrier doesn't attach to it.

The key benefit to the ORF is that it does not depend on a single pivot point which is a single point of failure. It is supported by brackets that bolt to the rollbar bases which makes it exceptionally strong. Two supports on the right, both through-bolted to roll-bar mounted brackets, and one more support on the driver's side, also supported by the rollbar base.

7 years after installing mine, it is still sag-free and rattle-free despite the fact it has been supporting two full 5 gallon jerry cans plus a 35" tire that entire time. Open it up and there's no sag. It is SOLID. I've yet to see a bumper-mounted design that was even close where strength and ease of use are important.

They're at www.orfab.com/

This first pic is from ORF's website...



The below pic is an old one of my rig with the spare tire and jerry cans removed from my ORF carrier just before a run up Sledgehammer. Yes you can tell by my friend who was wearing a parka that it was COLD that day, it does get cold out in the desert during the winter wheeling season.

tj1230 I just posted a thread a couple days ago. I am in the same boat. I have gotten a ton of a great reviews about nates4x4.com. All the jeepers that commented on it, said he makes a quality product. You will be well under $1k. Actually I think setup w/all the options is less than $500. excluding shipping.

Just a thought.

JEEPNICK rock hard 4x4 for sure. i love mine!

chiro2736 I still like Poison Spyders!

distortedtj That rock hard 4x4 bumper is a good looking set up.

The garvin swingout is a very nice setup. Also alot of people like the Warn setup.

What style of bumper are you looking to get?
What options would you like it to have?....fuel can holders, hilift mount, ext.
