Hey Everyone,

I am looking into bumper / tire carrier combos and am primarily looking at the SmittyBilt 76622 model.

For those of you have have this bumper, can you share your experiences and pros/cons? Thanks!

Have not replaced my rear bumper yet, but when I do, that is the one I am buying. I have the front bumper that matches it, and my side steps/sliders are the smittybilt one with the same size tubes

I know a lot of people don't like smittybilt, but it serves my needs just fine.

I also have the same style steps/rails and really like them. Haven't had any rusting or anything to indicate poor quality workmanship in my eyes. I am hoping to hear from some others who have them to confirm it is if the same quality.

Great to hear! How long have you had it? What size tire? Any issues with the carrier sagging with the tire weight?

I have BFG mud terrains, 35inch. I have ZERO sagging problems. I love this bumper, and SOOO easy to install. (But so are all bumpers)
