Rear Bumper Tire Carrier
 
I am looking for a rear bumper tire carrier. I can't afford a Warn and i heard some of the cheaper brands rattle. Any Idea's?

Search this site for a thread about " thedirtworx ". I have nothing but positives to say about his product and same with everyone else I have read buying one.

Also not sure why you posted this in the trail pics section....

I'm actually considering buying from the same guy.. anyone mind putting up pictures of his work? or some feedback?

I'm on my cell so it would be a pita for me to dig up the link but if you use the search option on here and type in thedirtworx you will find at least 2 thread that I created about the custom rear bumper he made for me with quite a few pics. If you have any questions feel free to ask.

If you like the Warn, I read on one of the other forums of another one made identical to the warn on the same assembly line that costs 1/2 the price.

I'd have to search for who was selling them. I just remember the ppl selling them made a lot of their own stuff, but this one was made elsewhere.

Check out craiglsist and ebay... you might be able to get a good deal on something.. I just sold a Warn front bumper on Craigslist, and saw a complete Hanson set for about half price.

Super Low Prices on TJ Bumpers and $399.95 Tire Carriers! - JeepForum.com

I bought one of these bumpers. Actually, I bought it from a different retailer for $285 shipped (no longer available from them). It's one hell of a bumper for that price. It does indeed look like a Warn clone. Maybe a little less on the quality control, almost like these were the "factory seconds" of the Warn bumpers or something. I had a few install issues and a rattle that turned out to be my tailgate and not the bumper. I fixed that issue and it's very quiet now. Very happy with the bumper so far.
