I just purchased the Smittybilt Rear Classic rock bumper and tire carrier from 4wheel parts since they were having a big 20% sale, and for $250 for the whole thing, this thing is awesome. Installation of the bumper went on very easy except for one bottom bolt on the passenger side which required a bit of drilling to widen it so the bolt would line up right. The latch on the carrier was a bit loose, so I took off the rubber stop, put a washer behind it and that fixed any rattles. It's not the greatest and best built bumper, but for $250 it can't be beat.

Got a little update on this guy. One of the bolts heads broke, causing the weld on the passenger side frame mount to break. Smittybilt sent me a new bumper free of charge with no questions asked. Their new bumper is even better then the old one, it's one solid boxed piece, and they strenghtened the reciever/hitch so it's rated for towing. I also tied it into the frame this time, and all I can say is this thing is solid. Still can't be beat for the price.
