Our 80-96 Rear with Centered Tire is a new addition to our lineup! This sleek bumper is made from CNC cut ¼” plate steel and offers the best body protection and style for your full size Bronco. The design wraps around the rear corners to provide our quality protection and includes a 2” unrated receiver hitch (unless requested otherwise). The tire rack is made of 2″x3″ x 3/16″ wall rectangular tube. The hinge uses 5/8″ permanently lubricated heim joints to open the racks. This insures a smooth and easy hinge to maintain. Included with these rugged racks is our fully adjustable cam latch system that will offer many years of rattle free use.
The80-96 Rear with Centered Tire has a very durable and modern design is also tow hook ready and easy to install. It is shipped as raw steel via truck freight or UPS. This product is also available in kit form. The kit edition is not a flat kit and will not be more economical when shipping. It arrives on a pallet, tack welded in its true form and will require several hours of welding and grinding to complete.
NOTE: If you have an XLT or an Eddie Bauer model, you may run into an issue with the tailgate hitting the cam bail when the tailgate is open. To remedy this, you can run a cable stop (approx 17″) on your tailgate.
Installation: On the full size Bronco, the fuel tank will need to be dropped in order to install the bumper using the added reinforcement brackets. It is NOT required to use these brackets, but this is how they are used:
There have been several people who have successfully put these bumpers on pickup trucks. Please keep in mind that these bumpers are made for the Ford Bronco and the stock axles they it come with. These bumpers will fit on F-Series pickups however the frames are not the same nor are the bolt patterns for the spare tire and it will require heavy modification to install the bumper properly. You will have to have an adapter made to make the spare tire fit. WE DO NOT PROVIDE THIS ADAPTER at no charge. The frame mounts will also need to be ordered unwelded on the front bumpers and the rear bumpers will need extra bracketry that may still require modification and also are not free of charge. We DO NOT recommend putting these bumpers on pickup trucks unless you have an experienced fabricator contracted for the job. We also DO NOT provide installation assistance in this case.
