EVO MFG's High N' Tight Rear Bumper:
PDRX8624_1024x1024.jpg



Jeep Gladiator High Clearance Rear Bumper with D Ring Shackle Tabs

Simple Bolt on installation.

This high clearance bumper is designed to reduce the Gladiator’s tendency to drag the rear bumper off road giving many inches of gained clearance over stock and aftermarket bumpers. Tight to the tailgate, low profile high from the ground. If you wheel your gladiator, this is the bumper for you.

Receiver option is Jeep backup sensors/park assist compatible.

INSTALLATION TIME 1-2 HOURS

*Bumpers ship bare steel with welded seams ready for contour grinding and/or paint/powder coat to your specific color. Some images may be shown with installer contour ground welds.

*Standard Bumper is Not compatible with Jeep Park Assist Back Up Sensors. (Will work on park assist equipped vehicles, park assist will be disabled).

*Receiver Option (2”) is currently NOT RATED FOR TOWING. (Used for Recovery and/or Bike Racks, Kayak Mounts, Baskets and other accessories)

Optional JT License Plate Relocate sold separately EVO-3121B

Ehh looks alright. Better with a flip up license plate and side protection IMO. Wrap around and get rid of the stock sliders. Doesn't look finished or complete with the stock sliders. Not rated for towing? Guessing it would be strong enough. Not a bad price point. High and tight for sure. Would not want to put my plates on the tailgate. Sorry for the negative feedback.

Have to agree, not a fan of the looks. However, it definitely serves a purpose as far as clearance is concerned. If you are are in need of the extra clearance based on the terrain you encounter than this is definitely an option. I have dragged my rear end a few times and decided to go with the Mopar steel rear that I am going to raptor line.

Is there a way to mount the license plate on the center of the standard bumper? Not a fan of the relocation kit.

I like it, about time for a nice tight bumper vs the big train sized bumpers.

My only "issue" would be the downward tilt on the top of the bumper. I like it, but if wet or muddy that would be a pain to step on to.

Do you have any pics of the backside and underneat and mounting points? I would prefer the shackle points a little lower, depends on how it mounts to the frame.

Good idea on making a low profile set up, how about the front?

“currently NOT RATED FOR TOWING”

Does this suggest you are currently testing/certifying it for towing?

You can definitely add one by drilling a couple holes.

It only sticks out 3" inches from the tail gate. Not much of a step anyway. I usually use the tire.

I don't have any pics at the moment. I'll grab some tomorrow.
The shackle point are high to maximize departure angle.

We have a few options for the front
