ROAM JL Pioneer Front Bumper in clear anodized aluminum: 7050 T-74 clear anodized aluminum pictured.

<Please excuse the side steps and the spare tire, the stainless steel side steps do not yet have the weld heat tint/coloration polished off just yet and the spare tire isn't the same size as the rest of the tires. Also missing the aux LED lights on the rear bumper. Will update with better pictures after EJS 2019.>

<The ROAM JL Pioneer Rear Bumper MK1 includes a Spare Tire Relocation Bracket for compatibility with larger tire sizes.>
Will these bumpers ever be available for purchase? Been looking at your site daily to see if stock changes on both front and rear bumpers, shortage on welders/workers?

So I posted this on its own earlier and it didn’t get much attention, this bumper was shown at the poison spider sema booth but not covered on their sema thread on here. Anyways I hope they are still making it, it really matches the mopar front bumper for those that want to keep it but want a sturdier option for the back and the only other bumper soon to be on the market that does the same is the AEV.

Installed the Warn Elite rear bumper today. Good quality bumper and no to bad to install. Cutting the backup camera “nose” off the tire Carrier was interesting. Not sure what kind of metal is under the plastic but my die grinder had a hard time going through. Still have to mount the tire and wire the license plate light other wise pretty much done. Last pic is with bumper completely installed.
So the tire cxr bolts up to the frame separately and then you install the bumper?

Yes. You bolt on the tire carrier lower mount to the frame. Install the swing tire carrier then the bumper goes over the swing mount.

I like the Motobilt bumpers. I just wish the rear wrapped around to the fender flares more like the factory bumper.

Does anyone have one of these installed with a picture more from the side?

I haven't tried it yet since I've been running and testing other bumpers, My younger brother actually designed that bumper for Ballistic and is currently working on some JL parts currently. I may dig this out of the storage and take a look a it.

I would like to buy the Rock Slide Engineering full width front bumper with bullbat and delete the winch plate completely. It is $1349.00 and I never see any coupon codes? Does anyone know where you can buy Rockslide products on a discount? Quadatrac never runs a promo that I have seen. Help!!

@jdhunt0 Well here you go. It’s not mine; I found it in a local Facebook Jeep group.

What is the hinge made of. Bearings or bushings. How do you like it. Any rattles.

Two brass bushings you lub before you put it in. No rattles at all with a 37” Nitto hanging off of it. There is a turnbuckle that allows you to adjust the tension on the carrier. I had the same bumper on a JK. The was three issues I ran into. There is a backing plate ring on the carrier that the studs go through was miss drilled. The receiver the the tire mounts on has a bolt that sets it in place was also miss drilled. The backup camera mount is a lot of fun to cut to make it work with the tire carrier. It is a quality bumper. I took pictures and the regional manager of 4WP sent them to Warn

Can anyone comment on the quality of Westin bumpers? I like the look of them and the price. However, I would rather buy quality than junk?
