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 trim hitting the cam bail when the tailgate is open. To remedy this, you can run a cable stop (approx 17″) on your tailgate. Otherwise you will have to notch the trim.
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 frame span is not the same nor is the bolt pattern for the spare tire and it may require heavy modification to install the bumper properly. You will have to order the correct face plate make the spare tire fit. WE DO NOT PROVIDE THIS ALTERED FACE PLATE at no charge. The 8 lug wheel plates are an additional $50. The frame mounts will also need to be ordered unwelded unless you can confirm the span is the same as the Bronco frame span. 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.
