Everything is on the table when you buy a new bumper: style, clearance, price, and accessory mounts. American Expedition Vehicles (AEV) offers a great deal with a rear bumper and tire carrier combo for those looking for a robust, flexible, and easy-to-install option.
Matching all of the requirements, this bumper is easy to place and sturdy enough to face adventures, so you won't have to care about highway or trail impact damaging your car. Also included is a dual 2.4-gallon liquid storage tank, useful for long trips. The tire carrier connects to the stock tailgate, and you must remove the factory mount to access the mounting holes. The spindle is housed on the passenger side and requires minor drilling for proper installations, which will be helped with a set of shims to ensure you have a proper fit.
The final result provides you with a great solution for when you need to carry a large range of supplies during excursions. The AEV tire carrier is an effortless method to carry your tires, offering a vibration-free structure for tires up to 40". Depending on your needs, you can install a range of AEV-branded add-ons on both the rear bumper and the tier carrier, like splash guards or backup lights. The chassis-mounted tire carrier from AEV also offers support for the new hi-lift jack/pull-pal mount and 10-gallon fuel caddy, making the combo an up-to-date option for your need.
You can install only the rear bumper or the tire carrier individually. The tire carrier can be installed in the factory rear bumper with minor drilling to the bumper, while the rear bumper operates alone.
