    High Clearance Rear Bumper

    Okay, so I know many of you Wayalifers are not fans of the high clearance rear bumpers. And with good reason, because those bumpers require you to either trim the rear cross member or cut it out entirely (i.e. JCR Dagger, Crawler Conceptz Skinny Rear, and the Poison Spyder BFH). I however have stumbled upon a bumper that offers both the high clearance and a solution to the rear crossmember dilemma. The Savvy JK LHT Steel Rear Bumper, Spare Tire Ready. You have to cut the entire rear crossmember out, like most high clearance rears, but they give you another, shorter, rear cross member to be welded in. I like this bumper because of that feature. I am currently running bumperless, and am looking to get a body mounted tire carrier (it's in another post, that is currently being debated) and want a rear bumper that doesn't compromise the departure angle. If ya'll bring new light to the situation then I will think harder about this bumper. But I can always stay bumperless, not a big deal.

    I like their front bumpers, but would probably skip the rear. I just can't see myself cutting up the rear cross member

    Yeah for me at the moment (keep in mind I have no money, so it's just an idea) I like that it comes with another rear crossmember, but I'm not the biggest fan. But my end result build, I will cut the rear crossmember. But it would be a little more heavy dusty than this one.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
