Tired of seeing about 60% field of view (FOV) out of your FJ’s backup camera? Don’t like your stock tire cover but don’t want to see the ugly camera housing exposed when you remove it?
We were too so we came up with Camera Armor. Not only does Camera Armor look better and provide a 100% FOV out of your backup camera but it also has a hidden bracket mounting system so you can mount a GoPro, antenna or light in the protective area of your spare!
As with our winch mount bumpers, we provide this to you in bare .125″ thick steel. You can paint, powder coat or whatever makes you happy. The aluminum end cap is anodized clear to protect the aluminum from the weather and keep it looking good. Hardware mounts flush and is stainless steel.
Installation is simple, pull off your spare wheel/tire, slide the camera armor over the studs and reinstall your wheel. Done. You can then leave it with the filler bracket or swap out brackets without removing the wheel again.
When you purchase Camera Armor you will receive:
Camera Armor body
Aluminum end cap/bracket mount
Filler bracket (does not protrude from under the cap but fills the slots so it doesn’t collect dirt/water)
Extended bracket with no accessory holes drilled. (you can bend, drill and cut to your heart’s desire)
2 x stainless steel flat allen head screws (1/4″ x 20)
Paint or coat as you wish, you can also paint the aluminum cap, make it yours.

U.S. Off Road is excited to be a Vendor at IH8Mud.com. IH8Mud is one of the premier Land Cruiser related sites on the Internet is a great source of information for FJ’s of all types and years and we are elated to be a part of this group of great FJ owners and enthusiasts.
After two very successful years of sales around the world I am proud to announce the latest evolution of our FJ Winch Mount Bumper. While we have had zero known issues and nothing but praise for this product I am always looking to make improvements where we can. To that extent I was looking to cut down on welds and deburring time, maintain or improve strength and accuracy and maybe even shed a few pounds.
All bumpers are now CNC laser cut for improved accuracy and finish. This also permitted us to alter the design a bit and reduce the amount of welds.
Weight has been reduced from a respectable 57lbs to 52.5lbs!
Fewer welds means a stronger bumper (not that the previous version wasn’t tough enough!)
We also added an A/C line notch to the back to help with clearance, which it does beautifully.
Torque arms were realigned and are made as one piece with the winch tub end caps. Stronger, less welding and weight reduction.
All bumpers are now fully TIG welded which gives a much nicer finish and less cleanup over flux core welding.
Winch mounting holes were moved rearwards 1/2″ for better clearance up front for some winches.
Bumper cover support tabs were added to provide better adjustability, fit and finish.
All of this with no increase in pricing! Retail is still $499.
Here’s an example of how much this setup will weigh:
Winch mount bumper: 52.50 lbs Viper Elite winch with no rope: 51.40 lbs 85′ x 3/8″ AmSteel rope: 3.6 lbs Aluminum hawse: 1.5 lbs Coating and fasteners: 1 lb Total weight: 110 lbs
With the recent addition of more drain holes and light tabs designed to work with 2″ LED lights I feel this bumper has evolved in to a very nice solution.
I have also been working with UPS to negotiate reduced shipping costs and take advantage of the lighter weight. Every penny counts.
I appreciate everyone’s business over the past two years and look forward to many more years of providing these types of products to the FJ owners.
We have some new products in the works for FJ owners so be sure to visit us at www.usoffroad.us for updates.
