Want a winch in the rear of your rig? Mount it just like you would in the front—using a winch bumper. These configurations keep the winch snug against the vehicle and protected from damage, while still allowing for a pull when it’s needed. Weight and cost, however, might need to be considered. The weight of the winch combined with the bumper can tax the rig’s suspension, and all bumpers come at a price. One option is the Stealth Rear Winch Bumper from Road Armor. It comes fit for many popular fullsize trucks and is a stylish way to mount and protect a winch on the back of your vehicle. Olympic 4x4 Products designed the Smuggler bumper to fit ’07-’17 Jeep Wranglers. The bumper weighs 236 pounds and can be purchased with or without the Dual Directional Tire Carrier.
