DV8 Offroad Full Length Rear Bumper with LED Lights Reviews
First off there are no instructions so that was frustrating to try to piece things together with no guidance. Second if you have the rear parking sensors be ready for a more in depth project as if you have a plastic bumper you need to rip off the mounts and Epoxy them onto the DV8 bumper and if you have the steel bumper you can reuse the mounts that are on there as they are reusable? You also need to cut and splice in a section of wire to lenghten the harness as they are further spaced out in the middle with this bumper. I lengthened the second sensor in from the left to remedy this. Again no instructions so that was fun. Finally i have gone out once and already have the coating flaking off at the bolt points where it is mounted to the frame, i never made ANY contact with trees or rocks while out this is just from being jossled around!
All in all its ok at best but far too expensive for the lack of quality and all of the DIY stuff needed to make it work. Certainly not a plug and play rear bumper and i would have gone with something different had i known this was going to be a bigger project than anticipated. Well see how it holds up and see if i end up hating myself and going with LOD or Poison Spyder next.
Very nice bumper, was able to fit my 35’s on stock carrier without problem, was a complete system with lights and license plate bracket, included stand off pots to lower the tow package light connections to clear bumper, instructions on site not bad, had to figure out the tow connection which was easy.
I bought this bumper for a 2018 JL Rubicon to replace a factory plastic bumper with backup sensors. It is a super nice bumper and has a much improved departure angle. With the license plate relocation bracket you can leave your plate on when you are wheeling.
The reason for the 3 star rating is primarily because the instructions are shamefully awful. If you don’t have backup sensors, it is a very straight forward install. If you have the OEM plastic bumper with sensors, get ready for a wiring project.
What they don’t tell you is that once you remove the OEM bumper, you will have to completely disassemble it in order to cleanly remove the sensors and the wiring loom. You need to remove (20+) 8mm hex screws and many plastic fasteners.
After you CAREFULLY pry the sensors off of your OEM bumper you will quickly notice that the wiring loom is too short to span the middle sensors on the new bumper. You will need to cut and splice (6)18-gauge wires to add about 12-14 inches to the middle of the factory harness. I used JB Weld to adhere the sensors to the new bumper which worked nicely.
You will also need to combine and extend the two rear LED lights and tap into your reverse light wire. I tapped into my driver side fixture also all of my wiring was heading in the same direction. The lights are excellent and make a big impact while backing. You will also be snipping your factory license plate wires and extending those to the new bracket.
If you aren’t experienced and super comfortable around 12V wiring, maybe leave this install to your local shop. It is a great looking bumper and I am very happy with it, just wish the fitment notes and documentation was better. With all of the unknowns, it ended up being about a 6 hour install.
