Hi JK Fletch,
We sent you out a complete replacement tire carrier arm, handle, and bracket. Let us know if you need any other parts! We are more than happy to send you whatever you need. I am sorry about the problems your having. These problems are really uncommon but we want to make it right for you!

Thanks for your suggestions and comments on the product. Just an update on the tire carrier bracket. We are making sure everything from here forward uses the 1/2 inch lugs and studs just like your factory studs and lugs so there will be no more compatibility issues here.

I look forward to hearing back from you I'll call you today to follow up!

Hi JK Fletch,

I know we are working with you now to get the problem resolved. We sent out a replacement and haven't heard back since. We want to get this resolved for you so please let me know what we need to do. I just followed up with one of our reps and he will be giving you a call shortly.

Not sure what is going on with the emails your sending but were here to help you with whatever you need!

Thanks

jshannon597 I would like to post the front bumper I got from KO Offroad recently. It was a little damaged in shipping, but I understand going from California to South Carolina is a long trip. The paint on the corners was a little chipped off. I contacted the guys there and they really helped me out by sending me some touch up paint. They even told me how to apply it. These guys are great and I love the way this bumper looks! Winch in shipping right now as I type!

Hanson skid

They say the Hanson skid works good with the barricade bumper. You might check that one out.

Jenkins01 Anyone have suggestions on a compatible skid plate?

jk fletch I also broke the end off the lug cap adjusting the lug stud. No problem ,right, just use your other lug nuts, right? Wrong, the lugs and metric lug nuts are different size than your jeep. so don't misplace them if you have to use that spare tire.

I took care of some rust (mostly welds) on the inside of the bumper with Extend and black spray paint, the tire carrier has rust on the bottom of the tire support.
Fitment on the tire carrier was not all that bad as long as you have a drill to open holes up, a sander to size the plastic bushing supports for the bearing surface of the tire carrier post, a dead blow hammer to adjust the tire carrier lugs. I had to move one far enough that a broke a spot weld on the lug. (close to 1/4 of an inch). you know just your typical Jeep tools
I'll put another pic up . I don't like slamming anybody or company but i think they could have emailed me back.. Just saying

ROCKHARD69 I have a set made at DV8 bumpers. They are well made and shipping was fast and well packed. I am saving up the money for their rock sliders.

can you use those as foot steps as well or are they too close to the body?

thanks

Achtung Just got my DV8 bumpers installed. Went very well. Great bumpers. Only issue was getting them into Canada.

I have the rear bumper and tire carrier. Have not had any problems and it's been on for the last couple of months. I did drill and tap the grease zerk on the hinge and added a standard zerk fitting. The original was to small for any of my grease guns. No squeaks but the tire studs are very long so you will need to use the included lug nuts. My gorilla lug nuts were to short and I destroyed one and it made noise since it never was tight.

Well I'll be wiring these up then today. I'll post a pic or so.

I have had zero issues with mine and have wired them directly into the factory fog light wires. Only thing is the LEDs are so efficient that they will stay lit for a bit while it burns down the remaining power in the wires. Usually about 30 seconds after you shut off the lights they go out.

How long ago did you buy these? The rock rails we've been getting in for the last 6 months are much thicker and more rigid. Prior to that they were pretty thin but anything that you buy now is .250

We are a much larger company than KO and we stand behind their products so you can buy with confidence.

ghostryder but they do look good so as long as your not using the stuff they would be great inexpensive thing to have
