Poison Spyder JK RockBrawler Rear Bumper - Second Generation
 
Poison Spyder is proud to introduce the Second Generation of the wildly popular JK RockBrawler Rear Bumper with Tire Carrier. The initial release of this bumper enjoyed a huge response both in praise and in orders. But soon after its release we decided to begin working on a few revisions, which have all come together in the awesome new version of this bumper.

NEW MULTI-FACETED DESIGN
Perhaps the most noticable difference with the new bumper is its sleeker appearance. A high clearance, multi-faceted design provides even better departure angles and corner obstacle clearance. Not to mention the new bumper appears more streamlined, less boxy. Like the original, the new RockBrawler is constructed of CNC laser cut, brake-formed 3/16" plate steel. But the extra bends and facets actually lend even more strength to the bumper design.

INTEGRATED RECESSED REVERSE LIGHTS
One of the biggest feature requests since the initial release of the RockBrawler Rear Bumper has been to incorporate reverse lights. The new bumper does this, with signature Poison Spyder style and quality. The recessed light buckets accept a 2-1/2" clear LED backup lamp--the same backup lamps we've sold with our Crusher Corners. The recessed buckets protect them from the rocks and direct light rearward rather than into the bumper interior, the way some competitor's bracket-mounted lamps do. Customers may choose to wire them into the reverse light circuit, or wire them to a separate dash switch as a loading or utility light.

IMPROVED MOUNTING SYSTEM
The new RockBrawler Rear Bumper incorporates an extra set of mounting bolts, along the bottom of the bumper which fasten into the rear crossmember. Combined with the previously existing mounting flange bolts at either side, the bumper is now fastened by a total of 8 Grade 8 bolts, on three different planes to provide ultimate strength and rigidity to the mounted bumper.

In addition to these improvements, we've also streamlined the manufacturing process to ease product shortages. Our fixtures have been completely re-engineered to provide better alignment of components and more efficient manufacturing.

Pricing has been set at $100 higher than the old price, which comes to $1,197.00. Let's face it there's more work in this bumper than in the old one. That gets you the recessed light buckets, but the LED lamps themselves are sold separately. The photos above show a bumper without the recovery shackle tabs, but those are still available as a $49 option.

Base bumpers (without tire carriers) are available for ordering as of now, in stock and ready to ship. They can be ordered either directly from Poison Spyder or through any of our Authorized Poison Spyder Dealers. The version with Tire Carrier will be ready some time next week.

Does anybody know if these are readily available and/or the price for a powder-coated black version?

An order placed today would most likely ship toward the end of next week. Orders have been slightly outpacing production on these but there are available slots in the current production run that will be completed next week.

At this time we are not offering them powder coated. Just bare steel only. We package them up pretty good already, but not quite good enough to absolutely guarantee that a powder coated one will arrive to you without any damage to the finish. Until we can do that, we're not prepared to ship them powder coated and risk having to pay to ship an entire bumper back and forth again due to a chip in the powder coat sustained during shipping.

Thanks Dusty. I just talked with Lou Kiklis from Elias 4WD Center in Townsend, MA. He is the nearest authorized Poison Spyder dealer and I'm going to have him handle the whole thing. I appreciate your response and am looking forward to getting new front and rear Poison Spyder bumpers as well as your diff covers and a new skid plate. Love your stuff!

do you have a total weight for the bumper with tire carrier?

What else is needed besides the LED reverse lights, license plate mount/3rd LED breaklight, license plate delete cover, tramp stamp? Are all of those items available?

Thanks!
