Default New SSD Bronco Rock Shield Rear Bumper










This bumper sits higher than the stock bumper so the body need trimming.

There bumper has a slot in the mount for the body to fit inside for a neat fit.

How does this bumper work in conjunction with the front SSD bumper?

The front is so tucked into the body that I have to angle the body on to get it behind the front bumper and it needs a little persuasion to get the body mounts to line up with holes.

I love the front bumper and am fine with the little persuasion to get it on, and I like the look of the rear but worried about how difficult it will be to get the body on with both SSD bumpers.

It's doesn't make any difference as the rear bumper does not wrap around the body like the front.

My rear ssd bumper mount goes into the holes all the way but sticks out too far using the mount holes closest to the bumper on the trx 4 sport. Looks good pushed all the way in thou. Any ideas on how to secure it since it's now way past the mounting holes? Thank you.

I'm assuming you are not using it with a Bronco body so the position is different.

The easiest way would be to drill new holes in the posts that suit your truck. Just remember there are screws in the posts to attach them to the bumper mount so the new holes can't be too close to the bumper. You may need to use shorter screws in the posts.

Why can't you just bore 2 new holes?

Except easier said than done if he doesn't have access to a drill press. Even then that's a tricky bore with the pilot bit wanting to keep walking down one side or the other.

@ willow_yeti- I generally try to dremel a flat spot on the the top of solid tubes before drilling.
