Expedition One Trail Series Jeep JK Wrangler
Rear Bumper and Smooth Motion STC System

Making it’s official debut at Off-Road Expo 2007, the new Expedition One Trail Series Jeep JK Wrangler Rear Bumper and Smooth Motion STC System is without a doubt one of the most unique and well designed bumper and spare tire carrier setups on the market today.

Constructed out of 3/16” sheet steel, the Expedition One Trail Series Rear Bumper comes standard with 1” thick ¾” recovery shackle mounts, is designed for use with the factory hitch and has side wings that have a boxed-in reinforced structure to help handle impacts when dropping of ledges or rocks.
 
The Expedition One Smooth Motion STC System is based on the same innovative design that was pioneered on the Jeep TJ Wrangler.  Specifically, Expedition One set out to create a tire carrier that would be able to carry up to a 40″ spare tire but was just as easy to use as the factory tailgate mounted setup.  And, the only way to do this was to integrate the tire carrier directly into the factory tailgate.  The integration of the two would provide much needed reinforcement for the significant added weight of a larger spare tire but would also allow users to open up the tailgate with a simple push of a button as normal.  And, after spending over a year doing extensive research and development working with longtime off-road fabricators and hardcore enthusiasts, Expedition One was able to created the the ultimate swing-out tire carrier that combines strength, style and functionality all in one - the Smooth Motion STC System.

Designed with a monsterous 3.25″ outter diameter hub assembly that uses tapered roller bearings and a spindle that carries a 1.75″ I.D. for the lower bearing hub, the Expedition One Smooth Motion STC System allows for adjustment to the carrier to maintain a sustained rattle free system and also giving the carrier its smooth swinging motion. Available with a standard integrated CB antenna mount, the Smooth Motion STC System will also be available with jerry can mount w/ Expedition One Geri TM Cans (design patents and utility patents pending), Hi-lift Jack mount and center 3rd brake light.

Expedition One is currently taking orders and customers can expect to see a lead time of about 4 to 6 weeks right now.  Pricing for both the bumper and carrier system and powder coated is only $1199.95.  If you would like to see more photos of the Trail Series Rear Bumper or Smooth Motion STC System, simply click on the link below:

    It’s a bummer that none of the pictures show what it looks like from the other side of the vehicle or how the tire carrier mounts to the tailgate. So many pictures of one side and none from the other side almost makes one wonder if they’re trying to hide the looks?!

    I stand corrected, very ingenious design. Looks like a very smart set-up. I wouldn’t slam the tailgate too hard with a 37″ tire mounted, it looks like it could dent the tailgate at the rubber bumpstop. Any problems with this?

    Thanks for the great product!

    No, no, issues with that. I’ve actually backed into our fork lift (slow speed)as well as a large garbage can with no damage to anything. As far as opening and closing goes, I think it would take a decent amount of force to slam it hard enough to make damage. Besides it doesn’t need to be slammed in order to shut it…

    Great looking bumper system. Is there any chance there will be backup lights available, or at least a holes on the wings for lights? Can it be ordered unfinished to cut holes myself?

    Just checked it out at the off road expo…I will definately be getting one. The only bumper my wife could close loaded up with a tire and gas tanks on a hill. Functional, good looking and sturdy. Awesome gas tanks BTW I love them!!
    I will wait till you have the gas tank accessory before I order.
    Good work!!
