Enterprise Rear Bumper, Tire Carrier, and Cargo Rack System
you ever heard of Hanson Enterprise? There's a good chance you
haven't. Even though this 4x4 parts fabrication company has been
around for over 15 years, it is a well-kept secret. It could even
be considered the best kept secret in the off-road world! You
see, those who do know Wayne Hanson and his products, know that
they are among the best designed and built parts available.
for all types of rockcrawling vehicles and even those too big
to be regular crawlers! He specializes in Early Broncos and Jeeps,
but also builds for Dodge, Ford, Chevy, and Toyota trucks. He
will custom tailor his products to
your specifications, or build something completely custom, if
you like. Hanson has designed super-tough rocker guards, front
and rear bumpers, tire carriers, roll cages, cargo racks, and
a million other products you'd never think of. His designs and
ideas have been adopted and adapted by many other 4x4 parts fabrication
companies around the country. You never know, maybe even your
bumpers were originally designed by Wayne.
this year, I sold my old Canyon City 4x4 rear tire carrier. It
served me very well for the two years that I owned it. It was
strong, well-built, and never rattled. I got rid of it because
my needs in a rear-end setup changed. Here is what I found that
I needed in a new setup:
- The spare
tire needs to sit in closer to the rear of the Jeep. I bought
the version of the CC4x4 that holds Gerry Cans, and that was
good, but the tire hung off of the rear so far that it dragged
on most ledges. The Hanson cargo rack can be adapted to hold
cans on the sides; up and out of the way of harm.
- Provision to
carry a cargo rack. I welded together a rack and mounts on the CC4c4
rack, but it was not a stable as I would have liked. The Hanson tire
carrier not only holds a cargo rack, but several innovative
combinations of cargo racks. And they are very secure, with no
rattling or squeaking.
- A step bumper.
I used the ConFerr Lobo rear bumper with the CC4x4 rack, and could
have used a bumper to step on in some situations. The Hanson rear
bumper provides ample space for stepping, standing, and placing
protection. The Hanson rear bumper curls around the lower rear
corner area, giving some protection to the sheetmetal there.
angle. Approaching a hill and nosing up it can drag your rear
bumper. The Lobo was so small that you never would hit it, and even
though the Hanson bumper is much larger, it is angled on the bottom
to provide maximum approach angle availability.
The Hanson rear
end setup offers much more, as well. Read on, and you'll see why it
is such a great combination of utility, strength and looks!
