Hello!

We're excited to show off some upcoming off-road bumper products soon for the Gladiator to include a dual swing out rear bumper but we wanted to get some feedback!

Below you'll see a shot of the rear of the Gladiator --

Curious if most would prefer the bumper to meet the corner (Option #1) or would people prefer the bumper extend around the corner to the highlighted area (Option #2)?

Your feedback will certainly help us steer the design to either one or the other unless the demand is there for both!

Thanks,

Expedition One

2 for sure. that extra protection there would be a deal maker for me and I could lose the rubi rails in the back for a little extra clearance which would be nice. I'm not far from you guys if you need a guinea pig gladiator for anything. I love the expedition one bumpers I had on my JK. Can't wait to see what you come up with.

Appreciate the feedback -- I'll certainly pass your info along if another Gladiator might be needed for internal testing.

Cheers

That is correct -- two swing arms with one able to hold a spare tire.

Details coming soon!

Option 2, especially if there was a step there. It would be nice with a swing arm and without option.

I like option 2, as long as it's not as gaudy as the Fab Fours version...that one looks tacky as hell to me.

I have the Rubicon..and I'd take them off for a well made steel bumper that extended that far and had a tire carrier.

Whichever option is less important than this consideration: Will my Jeep have armor and protection from rocks? If your product does not offer protection, then it must not preclude installation of other armor products.
