For anybody serious about off-roading adventure, the AEV Rear Bumper and Optional RX Tire Carrier for the 2018+ JL Wrangler are vital additions. The JL Wrangler’s OE rear bumper and spare tyre carrier are great for a standard vehicle that seldom leaves the road, but they aren’t designed to endure much off-road damage.
The JL Rear Bumper from AEV is built from the bottom up to endure the rigours of off-roading and overlanding. The JL Rear Bumper increases departure angle while providing chassis-mounted, tubular steel corner protection for the rear quarter sheet metal, which is one of the Wrangler’s most susceptible areas. The AEV Rear Bumper has two heavy-duty, chassis-mounted recovery points for quick rigging of 34″ anchor shackles. A moulded step pad is featured for solid footing while reaching your goods, and rotomolded corners decrease extra weight while contributing to the overall beauty.
The AEV Rear Bumper works with the factory trailer hitch receiver, licence plate light, trailer harness plug, and rear ParkSense backup sensors (if equipped). A single 3″ square LED reverse light may be installed cleanly beneath the bumper (mounting kit supplied separately), and a pair of AEV Splash Guards can be added (sold separately). We also built two distinct fender-flare extension kits for Jeeps with either the “high” fender flare option or the normal fender flares to ensure the Bumper fits perfectly on all Wranglers. Customers with aftermarket or no fender flares can buy the Rear Bumper without the flare extension for a shorter width.
The RX Tire Carrier is based on the same proven design as our JK Wrangler Tire Carrier, transferring all of the stress and weight from your enormous spare tire and wheel to the vehicle’s chassis. This not only provides a more secure mounting option but also eliminates the possibility of overloading your tailgate while preserving one-handed operation. Many additional characteristic elements from our previous generation Tire Carrier have been carried over, including mounting facilities on the top of the tower for a reverse/chase light and antennae, as well as a shovel holder beneath your spare tire.
Both the AEV Rear Bumper and the RX Tire Carrier are E-coated and powder-coated for optimal corrosion protection. The AEV Rear Bumper has a zinc coating applied prior to the e-coat for improved corrosion protection because it is more exposed to road debris and trail obstacles than other components.
Please note: Unless an adapter is fitted to relocate the spare tyre up and away from the bumper, the AEV Rear Bumper will not operate with the factory spare tyre installation. Furthermore, AEV’s RX Tire Carrier is only compatible with AEV’s Rear Bumper and not with the OE rear bumper.
