Have any of you had sensor issues with the RH bumper?
I was going to get the LOD one, but hearing some of the problems has me revisiting my bumper choices.
No major problems with the sensors on the RH bumper. I did observe a slight change in the detection window behind the vehicle but nothing I would consider a show stopper.

I am in the market and have looked at a few different rear bumpers w/tire carrier. This bumper does look well made and stout. I know LoD has problems with some 35s and likely with 37s because of what looks like sensor placement on the bumper. I can see RH has moved the sensors away from the spare which seems to be the ticket. Anyone know if they have a forum member discount or anything?

I think you can talk the salesman on the phone into a 5% discount. Installed my Rockhard setup and very happy with the quailty and fit. They are a great company.

Has anyone had clearance issues when actually towing? With the receiver at the top of the bumper, in so many pictures I've seen it looks like the receiver is partially blocked by the spare? I am deciding between this and a Smittybilt (either SRC or XRC (both gen2 with tire carrier). The Smittybilt has the receiver at the bottom of the bumper (and is about $300 cheaper).

Any help is appreciated!

Did anyone ever do the pickup bed liner in place of the powder coating?

I live in Mn and the rust and corrosion are a real problem here if the Jeep is run in the winter.

Good luck with the POR, I tried it on a oil pan and it definitely slowed down the rust problem but it’s not a fix all cure all as they claim! IMO.
