Apex Rear JK Bumper from Full Metal Fabworks
Apex Rear Bumper
Just like our Apex front, the Apex rears are designed using Solidworks Software, laser cut from 3/16th plate steel, and CNC brake formed.
Increased departure angle and protection where you need it:

The Apex rear is designed to allow maximum ground clearance without the need to cut into the JKs frame. It wraps around the corner just enough to protect this vulnerable area from impact when exiting an obstacle, but not so far that it hinders tire clearance during articulation. Bumper mounting requires only minor drilling and is then handled by 8 grade 8 bolts, 4 that are retained from the factory hardware and an additional 4 that are provided with the bumper.
Recessed Reverse Lighting:
The Apex rear is designed to incorporate a recessed Rigid LED flush mount light. This platform allows the customer to dial in the amount of light they need for the rear of their vehicle. We run a diffused SR-M (2 LED) on our shop rig and it provides plenty of light for reversing even at night with tinted windows. Here is a link to the different lights that rigid offeres; they have everything from 2 LED diffused light all the way up to a 3 LED driving. Flush Mount
Recovery shackle mounts and use of factory trailer hitch:
1 thick shackle mounts pass through the face of the bumper and are welded not only on the outside, but also directly to the frame mounts of the bumper, ensuring that the shackle mounts are the strongest possible recovery point you can use. The bumper is designed with a cutout so that the factory hitch can be retained for those that wish to use this area to implement an additional d-ring mount or for towing. The step in the bumper allows for up to a 35" tire on a factory tire carrier.
$485 bare, no shackle mounts
$535 bare, with recovery shackle mounts
Add $110 for rigid light (2 LED SR-M models)
Add $150 for powder coating

How is the install on this? Any additional holes need to be drilled?

PM Sent.

And for others that are interested,the install on the Apex rear is pretty straight forward. It uses 4 of the stock mounting locations, and also requires you drill 4 new holes ( 2- 7/16" holes in the frame, and 2- 1" holes on the bottom side of the cross member that ties the frame together) for a total of 8 different mounting points. Attached is a link to the install instructions from our website for anyone to review that is interested in the installation process.

Tire carrier update:
The prototype carrier has been on the shop rig and undergoing some testing with a 39" BFG (plenty of room for a 40, but we just didn't have one on hand to test with) for a while now. There are a few small changes we are going to make before production but this one is very close. We just ordered enough spindles to make the first couple runs, so look for updates and more details on this in the next couple weeks.
