The RockBrawler II is the latest evolution in JK rear bumpers, incorporating many features requested by Poison Spyders customers, and product improvements born of real world use and testinge original RockBrawler. This bumper combines the best features to maximize performance on the toughest trails with some of the more refined traits not normally needed on a dedicated rock crawler. Its most prominent feature is the all new RockBrawler II Tire Carrier, which connects to the tailgate for easy, single-action opening. It's also slightly wider and deeper than the orignal RockBrawler for increased corner protection, and features an integrated hitch. This product ships as bare steel—it will need to be painted or powder coated prior to final installation.
Integrated Single-Action-Open Spare Tire Carrier
The RockBrawler II Spare Tire Carrier's Single-Action-Opening feature is a huge convenience for when you're trying to open the tailgate and tire carrier with one hand, when you've got an armload of gear or groceries in the other. Rather than latching to itself, the RockBrawler II tire carrier is tethered to the tailgate so that they open and close in tandem. A custom designed tie-rod assembly, bumper mechanism and Tramp Stamp keep the two pieces perfectly aligned when open, but tight and rattle-free when closed.
Tire Carrier Fabricated Plate Steel Construction
The RockBrawler II Spare Tire Carrier is fabricated entirely from CNC laser cut, precision brake-formed plate steel. The pieces are expertly welded together in a specially designed assembly fixture to ensure consistent fit and quality. A web gusset design is cut into the corner of the tire carrier to provide a little Poison Spyder flare.
Extreme Duty Hinge Assembly
The extreme duty hinge assembly includes a precision CNC machined spindle and housing, with a pair of high quality Timken tapered roller bearings to provide smooth operation under the heaviest loads A spindle seal at the bottom of the hinge assembly keeps your lubrication in, and dirt and water out. The hinge assembly is capped with a CNC machined billet aluminum cap with the Spyder emblem machined in.
2-Way Adjustable Tire Mount
The tire mount is adjustable up and down, as well as in and out, to accomodate a wide variety of tire sizes up to 39". The adjustability allows the tire to be mounted as low as possible for any tire size, to keep a low center of gravity.
Multi-Faceted Bumper Design
The RockBrawler II Rear Bumper's high clearance, multi-faceted design provides the best possible departure angles and corner obstacle clearance. Its appearance is streamlined and sexy, not like the squarish, boxy shape of many other bumpers on the market. The RockBrawler II Rear Bumper is slightly wider and deeper (front to back), when compared to the original RockBrawler Rear Bumper. This provides an increased degree of protection from corner impacts on the trail.
Recovery Shackle Tabs
The Heavy Duty Recovery Shackle Tabs are CNC machined from 1" thick steel billet. These tabs are designed to match the high clearance aspects of the rest of the bumper and minimized hang-ups. These Heavy Duty Recovery Shackle Tabs come as standard equipment on the RockBrawler II Rear Bumper.
