About the nomenclature, this one would actually, technically be "Gen III". The first version of the RockBrawler rear bumper was a little different, it didn't have backup lamps, was more box-shaped, etc. So I guess its a little confusing to call this one the "RockBrawler II". But I know what you're talking about
With regards to the hitch, we do not do a tow weight rating on them. For that reason we can't technically call them a tow hitch, nor recommend them for actual towing. We have to call them a "recovery attachment point". There are insurance and liability issues behind all of that. We're still a pretty small company but perhaps we're growing toward the point that we may start being able to justify the extra expense of having the tow ratings done and certified by the outside laboratories. But we're just not at that point yet.
Yes, it does tie in to the crossmember. There are a couple of extra bolts that bolt through the bottom of the bumper into the crossmember. You can look at the current bumper's install instructions if you'd like to see that in detail, the new bumper will install in a similar manner.

Any timeframe on release dates for the Gen II rear RockBrawler bumper without tire carrier?
I'm really torn between the first generation and this new one coming out.
Will the integrated hitch have the same specifications as dictated by the OEM hitch? Does your bumper integrate into the crossmember for additional support?
Thanks a ton for the information.

|DTS||kramer2k, I don't think we are planning to offer it without the hitch. At least, not at product launch. Demand will dictate what options and changes become offered as the product evolves.|

I asked this in your other rear bumper question but I now see your new Gen II RockBrawler rear bumper will not have a delete option for the light buckets.
I have another question on the new rear bumper. Will it be available without the integrated hitch? I like how the new rear bumper has a little more depth and wraps around slightly more than the first generation RockBrawler. But I'd like to keep my OEM hitch.

|tlminh||Awesome. Cant wait. Will it be a direct bolt on or would I have to drill into the frame like the current one?|
|02-12-2013 12:01 PM|
Currently we do not offer a can mount option, but we hope to at some point.

|NFRs2000NYC||Really waiting for someone to come out with a full width bumper, with lights, with a carrier on real bearings, WITH a tailgate link, WITH OEM hitch compatibility, WITH TWO gerry can mounts. Would buy it tomorrow. Sadly, no one makes one, and for some reason, no one is planning on it.|

I too am waiting for the midwidth rear. Will it be offered without the tire carrier? I had to get the teraflex hd hinge bc I couldnt wait any longer
Also, do you have pictures of the front mid width with a stinger?
|02-11-2013 12:11 AM|
|NFRs2000NYC||Will the new rear bumper line up with OEM fender flares? Also, is their a way to mount fuel to them, either jerry cans or rotopax units?|

|Jenkins12||Does your mid width bumper have light tabs on the bull bar?|
|02-09-2013 07:23 PM|
|connorcrush||Really looking forward to the rear. Are you going to offer it without the fog light cut outs?|

chopperbobby & ddog, the first run of the Brawler MID front bumper is being sold by Northridge 4X4. Once the first run was already in production we decided to make some changes to the design, so Northridge offered to buy out the entire first run so we could wait until the design was finalized in our second run before we officially launch it on our own site. Basically the design change was to allow for larger tires, as the first run would fit a maximum 37" tire, but it would rub a little on those at full turn and full articulation of the suspension. Northridge is selling them with that disclaimer, however they are an awesome deal because they are throwing in the lower skid for free. The second run, which will officially launch them for us, will not have the tire size disclaimer but they won't come with a free lower skid.
Glockem, the JK 50" Light Bar Mounts have been in production for over a year now. You can purchase them right on our website or through any of our dealers, or from Rigid. If you purchase the light bar from us, we throw in the mounts for free.
ddog, the new RockBrawler II rear bumper will probably not be available until after the New Year. 4-door Brawler Rockers in steel are available now.
