RH4X4 Product Info RH4x4 Installation Manual/Video RH4X4 Warranty Info
 
Rock Hard 4x4 is very proud to offer the strongest and most durable Rear Bumper and Tire Carrier that comes fully loaded, standard.

The RH4x4 Rear Bumper and Tire Carrier is one of our favorite products. Not only is it the only rear bumper with integrated tire carrier made out of 3/16" x 2" x 4" thick plate steel, it's also the easiest to use. We've seen people struggle to open or close their tire carrier cage and thought, "that'll never be me". That never will be you with our proprietary dual-stage latching mechanism and "pre-load" design to prevent vibration and wobbling.

Our Rear Bumpers are full width to protect your vulnerable corner panels and tail gates. With end plates designed to provide maximum departure angle and clearance, our design prevents you from getting "hung up" on tough trails and sharp, off camber turns. Plus, with oversized tires, rubbing and tire gouging is never a concern. The bottom plate of our bumper hugs the rear cross member behind your Jeep for more ground clearance than even some competition bumper designs.

Bumper and Tire Carrier Weight: 110 lbs.

Dimensions
59" wide
5" from OEM rear cross member / bumper mounting surface to outside of receiver

Strength and Function
Your rear bumper has the potential to take more abuse than any other body armor on your Jeep. Whether its on road traffic collisions or off road rock damage, you need some serious armor to keep you safe. 3/16" thick plate steel is the ultimate armor to protect your vulnerable rear corners, tailgate, and fuel tank. High clearance corners, user friendly "1-finger operation" latch, and a weather resistance finish make this rear bumper combo a no brainer.

The secret to our tire carrier's success is our in house designed and constructed hub assembly. Instead of a single bearing system like competing models, we use a dual bearing and race combo for smooth and consistently reliable operation. See our components section below for complete details.

All this strength adds up to one of the best spare tire size carrying capacities on the market: a massive 38" tire!

Options
Longer off road excursions require more cargo and fuel. Our Rear Bumper's unique tire design is the perfect platform for accessories. Our optional heavy duty driver and passenger side Tank Mounts and Cargo Rack bolt on to our tire carrier to give you space you need for extended range or duration trips.

With the addition of our rear bumper comes the opportunity to also protect your exposed and critical fuel tank. Our bolt-on RH-3008 Gas/Fuel Tank Skid Plate mounts to your frame giving you a plate of solid 3/16" steel armor. This simple addition to your RH4x4 rear gives you peace of mind and increased capability.

Ease of Installation
It does not take a PhD to install the best rear bumper and tire carrier on the market. No welding is required and the truly bolt on design makes your garage your own off road shop.


Components
RH4x4 Rear Bumpers and Tire Carriers are very recognizable for two major reasons: owners bragging about how durable it is and it's clean, functional design. What makes up a RH4x4 Rear Bumper and Tire Carrier is what makes it so strong.

By mounting your rear bumper as close to your frame rails as possible, ground clearance is maximized and protects your rear frame cross member.


Bolt on tailgate streamer bar helps apply preload to closed tire carrier gate preventing vibrating and wobbling. A Rock Hard 4x4 exclusive feature.


Newest design allows you to move your spare tire up and down or in and out for best fitment and visibility.


Integrated 2" receiver hitch included in every rear bumper.


Safety pin to prevent tire carrier closure when you are stopped on an angle and accessing rear compartment.



Integrated welded on CB antenna mounts standard on every tire carrier.


Integrated Hi-Lift jack mount standard on every tire carrier.


Zerk style grease fitting to service hub assembly.


Welded on heavy duty recovery shackle tabs. Our tabs are welded onto the face, travel through the bumper, and are again welded onto the backside of the bumper's skin. This is standard Rock Hard 4x4 ingenuity and simply not offered by other manufacturers.


Secondary mounting holes allow for Wranglers with a body lift or increased departure angle. A RH4x4 exclusive feature!


What comes in every kit:
  • Rear Bumper
  • Tire Carrier with integrated hi-lift jack mount and CB tabs
  • Tailgate streamer bar
  • Hardware
  • Installation Instructions

Three Reasons Why:
  • 3/16 x 2" x 4" thick plate steel construction

  • Unmatched quality and fitment





Rock Hard 4x4 Heavy Duty Frame Kits:

For Wranglers and Jeep CJ's running heavier / larger spare tires, Tank Mounts, or Rock Rack Cargo Baskets should consider our Frame Kits. These help support your rear bumper to your frame. All are bolt on except the RH-2001-YJ which requires welding.

In the News:

JP Magazine, July 2007
http://www.fourwheeler.com/how-to/wheels-tires/154-0708-jeep-wrangler-tire-carrier-test-rock-hard/
"With a door-striker style latch, a swing-arm stop that has more metal in it than most new cars, a beefy hold open bolt, and top end reinforcement on the hinge, this thing should last longer than your Jeep."

5 of 5 Awesome Bumper and Tire carrier June 21, 2022
Reviewer: JEFFREY NOLES from FORT VALLEY, GA United States  
This is a very well made bumper! I used the required mounts to tie it to the frame on my CJ 7. It fit perfectly with no drilling. I had one miner problem but Jason took care of it fast. It was well worth the wait. I have no doubt it will last a lifetime. No more squeaky tire carrier.

5 of 5 April 16, 2022
Reviewer: Roy Willis from Fort Worth, TX United States  
They accidentally shipped the wrong tire carrier with bumper which we didn't realize immediately. We were planning for a trip to Moab in a couple days. When we contacted them they were outstanding with their service and exceeded my expectations in expediting the parts needed. OUTSTANDING CUSTOMER SERVICE! Anyone can make a mistake but great people step up and own them!

5 of 5 Patriot rear number install February 22, 2022
Reviewer: Charles Bolton from Yerington , NV United States  
First off, the shipping and packing of the bumper is exemplary. All items are encased in expanding foam packs. A combination of enclosed instruction and most important, the video, are extremely helpful. Without the video, it would definitely make the install a much longer project. I can’t emphasize the importance of reviewing the video enough. The interior mounting bolts can be a little testy getting start, don’t cheat, make sure you use all fasteners provided, especially the necessary frame braces. When completed, opening and closing with the spare mounted will be a good example of why these braces are necessary. Be careful when you start to mount your hi-lift, if it extends past the passenger side brake light, when it swings open, damage can occur. Check location with the swing in the open position. Overall, simply a great product. The amount of design and engineering that went into this product is phenomenal.

5 of 5 Solid build February 22, 2022
Reviewer: David Moores from COVINGTON, LA United States  
This rear bumper and tire carrier is the most solid build I have ever seen. I have other aftermarket products on my TJ and it blows them all away. Plus, the install videos and instructions are fantastic. Well worth the price.
