    Default AEV Launches New Rear Bumper for JK

    AEV JK Rear Bumper and Tire Carrier


    American Expedition Vehicles (AEV) is proud to announce its new JK Rear Bumper and Tire Carrier system. This system provides robust protection against highway and trail impacts, and includes a strong, vibration-free and effortless means for carrying tires of up to 40" in diameter. The Rear Bumper and Tire Carrier deliver a long list of trail-friendly features, among those features is a unique, built-in fluid carrying system that conveniently carries nearly five gallons of liquid.

    Both the Rear Bumper and Tire Carrier are designed so that either component can be installed and used individually, or they can be used together as a complete system.

    Check out the following list to get a better idea of all the great features of AEV's new JK Rear Bumper and Tire Carrier system:

    Tailgate-synchronized swing-out tire carrier
    Features anti-vibration tie-rod adjustment
    Super heavy duty chassis-mounted pivot with greaseable, spiral-grooved bronze bushings
    Anti-bind swing-out cradle that accommodates differences in movement between chassis and body when the JK is driven on the trail
    Carries up to a 40-inch tire
    Dual 2.4 gallon liquid storage tanks constructed from nearly indestructible cross-link polyethylene which are textured and contoured to match fender flares
    Driverís side (LHD) tank features large fill opening for easy refills.
    With the optional Pump Kit, the passengerís side tank is plumbed to driverís side so all filling is done from one side. Optional hand pump attaches to drivers side tank.
    3/16th wall, chassis-mounted tubular corner protection
    No-slip tongue lifting points for High-Lift Jack
    ĹĒ steel recovery mounts, attached directly to the chassis
    Accessory mast for work light and antennas
    Built-in step for easy roof rack access
    Built in shovel holster

    Wow!



    Love the water tank idea! Nice to see that they will be offering a High lift jack and Pull Pal holder!

    The only thing it is missing is an air tank

    Yeah i like the water tanks and how the wings tie back in to the frame. Wonder if that water pump would work in a AT water tank... hmm.
