Ujoint Rear Bumper - Attachments and Dimensions

Hey guys

just ordered the Ujoint Offroad Rear Bumper with the 2 swing arms.
But instead of using the Pelican box on the swing arm, I decided to put it on my roof and install a dual jerry can holder + hi lift jack mount instead.

2 questions to you:

1. Does anyone have a recent version of the rear bumper and might be able to provide some dimensions of the passenger swing arm? I would like to know x and z dimensions for the 2 poles going up as well as the screw positions, so that I can prepare my holder in advance.
Chris is highly occupied so I thought I take off some work from him and ask around here :-)

2. Has anyone done a similar jerry can mount as DIY and non weld version? Any chance to show some pics what you used as support?

Idea would be to built a kind of unistrut or 80/20 frame so that I can use the area above to place a bag with tools or so. The frame could be either mounted to the 2 upright tubes using the 3 screws per pole or I would be adding a L-steel profile as support close to the swing arm.

Would be curious to see how you did DIY storage/ jerry can mounts.

Pictures are good/helpful.

What are you needing the Hi-Lift for?

Ujoint Rear Bumper - Attachments and Dimensions

Cause they look cool…..and it hides the front plate, so it gives the parking enforcement guy a reason to get up in the morning

1der, the Hi Jack is more or less safety precaution. We're just getting into overlanding and we'll be traveling mainly alone. This means I have to be prepared for situations where I can't just call someone or another vehicle pulls me out.
My rig is 2WD and the locker is ordered. Seeing the overall costs for the lift kit, tires, locker, compressor, rear bumper, ... the cost of the hi jack lift doesn't really matter. I understand your point and these jacks are controverse/ dangerous and anywhere between "I never go without" and "absolutely useless" :-)

So here are some pictures I found:






Skip the box, as I will not mount it on there but put it on my roof.

My main interest is in the height of the 2 stand going up, the position of the mounting points in z direction as well as the distance from left to right pole.

This way I can already prepare my jerry can frame/ holder/ mount and get it on asap.

Hope this helps! I measured mine but looks like I missed some measurements.

That‘s really cool! Thank you!
Now I can go ahead and order my extruded profiles!

The resolution is not on spot, so the distance right to left screw is 14“ right?
2“ profile, 27 1/4 high. Nice. The z distance of the screws is not as relevant as I will have the slots in the profile.

Do you know the screw diameter by any chance?

Will post a picture once I have everything installed.

Yes 14" from left to right.

The very top bolts on mine measure 13 7/8" apart. The z distance is 10" and 10 1/4". I did not check diameter. My van is in storage atm I can check on that this weekend.
