XTRyan, I received my bumper last week. Here are some pics showing packaging as requested. The box and packaging were pretty solid. There were still spots on the corners that were worn so my guess is this occurred before shipping. Also managed to break one of the bolts during install. There was still enough thread for the nut to bite so I just added some loctite, makes me feel a little concerned about the quality of the bolts if my scrawny ass could do that... I will say though that it looks great on my jeep and was really an easy install minus the one bolt breaking

Correct me if I'm wrong but this does not come with the fog lights, correct?

|Waldo177||Thanks everyone for all the info. I have been looking at these for some time and want them really bad. It does concern me about the rear frame tie in's some but I'm sure I could figure something out to make this happen. The price has got me hooked with the looks as well. The way I have it figured with materials and cost of powder coating I would be close to this price building my own, plus my time on the trails is worth buying this one. LOL|

Anyone upgrade your fogs to LEDs in your barricade bumper?
Wondering which fogs you went with and how easy the install was? Plug and play? How did you mount them?
I'm most closely looking at the truck lite fogs since I'm getting truck lite headlights. The JW Speaker fogs look amazing but are way too expensive.

Holy crap!!!! Ryan wins the internet today!!! It's nice to see real, great customer service this day in age.
This is why I'll be ordering from him when I get around to upgrading.
|10-14-2014 11:54 AM|
Wow. Just wow. What unbelievable customer service. I can't say Thank You enough XTRyan.
-Customer for life!

|Jeffk1975||Damn! That's customer service right there.|

EDIT: I was able to locate an old order number for you in our PM conversations and the credit was applied. You should have a confirmation email coming to you. You just have to call into 1-800-988-4605 M-F 9-8 est. when placing your next order to use it!
In the mean time I want to thank everyone for their feedback on the bumpers. Without that we wouldn't have the information to push back to Barricade and help them make a better product. Keep it coming!
|10-14-2014 07:47 AM|
Thanks Ryan. I appreciate the offer. Unfortunately I've already painted multiple parts of the bumper and attempted to alter some things to fit my needs so I would not feel right attempting to return it.
It's not terrible, just not ideally what I want for the long run. I will probably upgrade in the Spring.
For now I will continue to touch up the rust spots and wipe down the rust coming from internal locations. Not the end of the world.
Ricochet: I will definitely try the mouse pad trick. Thanks!

|Riccochet||The rattling comes from how the handle is designed. You need to push the handle in to turn it. Likewise you can pull on the carrier and move it back. Releasing it sends it smacking back in to the metal washer. With me it probably has to do with the heavy tires/wheels I'm running. More weight that allows the carrier to load up the spring and move a bit. My little trick with the mouse pad quieted it down significantly.|

As others have said, the hitch isn't tow rated which is why there isn't a spot for chains or wiring.
As far as the latch and the powder coat go, I haven't hear of many people complaining of the carrier rattling or the powder coat not holding up. I'd be happy to send you out a new bumper to try, or I can set you up with a return if you just want to get something else entirely. I don't want you to have a bumper you're not happy with!
Just PM me and let me know how I can help.
|10-13-2014 09:55 AM|
Thanks for the feedback on the rear bumper.
At this point I will probably just remove it. Definitely not worth $700.
A shortsighted purchase on my part. Why would I take a vehicle with a tow package and make it unable to tow anything by paying $700 for a rusty bumper?
|10-12-2014 09:18 AM|
I think they have a wrinkle touch up kit that might help you with the rust/finish issues. Try sending Ryan a pm and see if he can help you out.
|10-12-2014 08:46 AM|
Liberty. Do you have an extra mouse pad laying around? This will solve the rattling handle. Just take the handle apart completely. It'll be a bitch getting it back together with the spring inside, but it's worth the trouble. Cut a bushing/washer to go between the handle and swinging arm. See, when your arm is latched you can pull the arm towards you a little. That's what's rattling. As time goes on the spring inside the handle gets weaker and it'll rattle more. Putting the mouse pad bushing in there eliminates the rattle.
Oh, the hitch is not tow rated. I wouldn't tow with it. It's fine for bike racks, carry racks and such. I might just cut mine off when I get the bumper line-x'd.

I would not recommend the Barricade Trail Force HD Rear Bumper with Tire Carrier.
I received my Barricade rear bumper a few weeks ago. Box was trashed and bumper needed multiple coats of Rustoleum in corners. Even that hasn't done the trick. I'm getting rust spots daily coming from the tire carrier mount. Also continuing to get rust near the swing arm latch. Installed 9/20/14.
I posted a review on ExtremeTerrain, but I guess my review didn't make the cut. It's been over a week and the review hasn't been posted. It was a One Star review, so don't be fooled by the fact that there are only Four & Five Star reviews listed on the site.
I would not purchase this bumper again for multiple reasons:
- The powder coat is just bad. There is no other way to put it. Even with multiple touch up coats of Rustoleum I continue to see rust daily.
- The trailer hitch is lacking. There are no spots for trailer chains which means if you want to be safe, you will need to use your rear shackles to chain the trailer which will require longer chains. Poor safety flaw in my opinion.
- There is also no way to mount a trailer plug for your lights, etc. This is just silly and now I've got my wiring just hanging.
- The latch for the tire carrier rattles which drives me nuts. I can already feel that the spring is getting weaker and I'm interested to see how long before the handle needs to be completely replaces.
Also know that the rear handle cannot be completely PlastiDipped because it has to slide. So be prepared for a bright silver handle.
If it wasn't such a pain in the neck to remove and pack and ship I would have requested a refund. I thought I would grow to like it, but as each week goes by I like it less and less.
At some point I will be replacing this bumper with something of better quality. I was definitely taken in by the 4 & 5 star reviews. In my opinion they are not representative of this bumpers actual quality.

|jay14sport||I received my bumper at the end of sept and the cardboard box was much sturdier than what my rubi rails were shipped in. Both corners had bare metal showing but not too bad. touched up fine..Fit great.|

|Bradsterlouman||Hoping to order mine this weeks! Bumpers f/r steps and a winch|
|10-10-2014 07:32 AM|
Has anyone purchased more recently?
|10-09-2014 03:16 PM|
|davidski||Hi Ryan. Perhaps this was before your updated packaging, but you sent me the Barricade front bumper on September 3rd. There were wear spots on it, with some steel showing on one end. I ended up putting 3 coats of Rustoleum on it, and now the finish looks nice.|
