PRODUCT REVIEW: Rock Crawler Rear Bumper from Crown Automotive for Jeep Wrangler JK Part Number RT20014
On thing that a lot of people change is the bumpers on their Jeep Wrangler JK. They not only look a ton better than the stock ones, they are rock ready and super tough. Most bumpers install in the stock mounts.
The rear bumper is a little more fun to install then the front one because it can be bigger and a bit more heavy. They can also have spare tire swing out carriers. We show you how to install a Crown Rear Bumper rock crawler with optional swing out tire mounts. This rear bumper came to us on a pallet it was that big, and it is painted in black.
I would recommend that you powder coat it before installation, at this time we did not do that because we wanted to get it on and see how it looks. We will coat it later. One thing to consider is that heavy duty rear bumpers and front bumpers will increase the weight of your vehicle. This product was donated to us by RSTGarage.
Fits: Jeep Wrangler (JK) (2007-2010); Rear; w/ tow eyes drilled out for tire carrier.
Impressions of Product, Review of Installation Process, and Other Thoughts
One thing that I really liked about this install in particular was its how easy it was to install. It had been a couple months since we had installed it and I remember how easy it was to take the stock bumper out. I think what made this bumper so appealing over the other ones we looked at was its design and great price point. It comes fully loaded to carry a tire swing out made by the same company that manufactured it. Comes with brackets for easy install, but one thing however that I wasn’t very fond of was it didn’t come with any hardware. Overall I thought it was an awesome install I would recommend this bumper to every Jeep JK Wrangler owner (07-15).
Tips on Install:
The only thing that I would recommend is having someone else help you position the bumper, as it was very hard positioning the bumper on its own with only one person, I would definitely recommend having an extra hand at least to do that part of the install.

Crown Automotive is the premiere manufacturer and distributor of quality replacement parts for Jeep CJ, Wrangler, Cherokee, Grand Cherokee, Liberty, and Commander.
Because we know that Jeeps are driven harder than most other vehicles, we emphasize offering only quality parts. In fact, we test parts on Jeeps before distributing them to our dealers to insure that they meet our standards for quality. Crown also supports its entire line with a 12 month/12,000 mile warranty.
We give it a 4 out 5 stars. Well after a while of having this bumper installed I must say that I am very happy with the fitment and the look of it. It seems tough and holding up very well.
The only thing is the finish is just paint so it does not clean easily like a powder coating would but it has fared well.
