The RockBrawler™ II is the latest evolution in JK rear bumpers, incorporating many features requested by customers, and product improvements born of real world use and testing of the original RockBrawler™. This bumper combines the best features to maximize performance on the toughest trails. It features a high clearance, multi-faceted design, 3/16" plate steel construction, an integrated hitch and provisions for recessed reverse lights. This product is finished in black with Poison Spyder's proprietary SpyderShell™ Armor Coat process.
Multi-Faceted Bumper Design
The RockBrawler™ II Rear Bumper's high clearance, multi-faceted design provides the best possible departure angles and corner obstacle clearance. Its appearance is streamlined and sexy, not like the squarish, boxy shape of many other bumpers on the market. The RockBrawler™ II Rear Bumper is slightly wider and deeper (front to back), when compared to the original RockBrawler™ Rear Bumper. This provides an increased degree of protection from corner impacts on the trail.
SpyderShell™ Armor Coat
SpyderShell™ is more than just powder coating—it's a complete system that includes the state of the art in preparation, application, materials and packaging to ensure that your SpyderShell™ products stay looking great for years. The SpyderShell™ process has been engineered to provide your Poison Spyder product with years of unmatched great looks, corrosion protection and weather-resistance. Our proprietary 6-stage system starts with media blasting the entire part, to remove contaminents and prep the metal surface for the best possible adhesion. Next, any seams are sealed with 3M Scotch-Weld to block moisture from entering and causing corrosion where the powder can not reach. The first coat to be applied is a zinc-rich powdered black primer, which is baked on to form an impenetrable bond between the metal product and the coating. The primer is black--rather than traditional gray--so that any rock chips or trail damage are less conspicuous. The final top coat is an industrial grade, "super-durable" architectural finish in semi-gloss black, which is engineered to retain its appearance through years of exposure to sun and weather. SpyderShell is a coating process unmatched by any other Jeep armor aftermarket manufacturer, for which we are confident in offering a 5-year warranty on materials and workmanship.

Plate Steel Bumper Construction
The RockBrawler™ II Rear Bumper shell is constructed of CNC laser cut, brake-formed 3/16" plate steel. The multiple bends and facets actually lend even more strength to the bumper design. Unlike Poison Spyder's BFH™ Rear Bumper for JK, the RockBrawler™ II Rear Bumper can be mounted without cutting or altering the Jeep's frame rails.
Recessed Back-Up Lamps
Very few JK rear bumpers come with provisions for mounting backup lamps. Of those that do, fewer still allow the use of high intensity, low power drawing LED lamps. The RockBrawler™ Rear Bumper's recessed light buckets accept 2-1/2" Round, Clear LED Lamps—the same backup lamps we've sold with our Crusher Corners™. The recessed buckets protect them from the rocks and direct light rearward rather than into the bumper interior, the way some competitor's bracket-mounted lamps do. Customers may choose to wire them into the reverse light circuit, or wire them to a separate dash switch as a loading or utility light. IMPORTANT: Note that the LED Lamps do NOT come with this bumper, they must be purchased separately.
Integrated Hitch Receiver
The integrated hitch receiver accepts standard 2" hitches and recovery accessories. It is built in to the structure of the RockBrawler™ II Rear Bumper in order to provide a higher clearance, tougher hitch that's there when you need it, but tucked up higher out of the way for better clearance and departure angles on the trail. Includes integrated safety chain loops. IMPORTANT: The integrated hitch receiver is not rated for towing. It is intended as a recovery attachment point only.
Rock Solid Mounting
The JK RockBrawler™ Rear Bumper incorporates an extra set of mounting bolts, along the bottom of the bumper which fasten into the rear crossmember. Combined with the mounting flange bolts at either side, the bumper is rigidly fastened by a total of 8 Grade 8 bolts, on three different planes to provide ultimate strength and rigidity to the mounted bumper. The drivers side "floating" flange allows for safe, secure tightening to the Jeep's frame rails regardless of manufacturing variances from the Jeep factory.
Recovery Shackle Tabs
The Heavy Duty Recovery Shackle Tabs are CNC machined from 1" thick steel billet, specifically designed to accept our Heavy Duty 3/4" Recovery Shackles. These tabs are designed to match the high clearance aspects of the rest of the bumper and minimized hang-ups. These Heavy Duty Recovery Shackle Tabs come as standard equipment on the RockBrawler II Rear Bumper.
