How does that rear bumper work? Are you going to put the spare tire in the space around the tube? Are you not going to use a tailgate anymore? I definitely like the style of your Jeep! there's a lot of prerunner trucks around my area too, most of them are posers though.

Yup, spare is going around the area of the tube something like this but a little bit more at an angle thats why there is pieces of wood in the bumper pic, measuring how much angle we should give it. And no im not running a rear hatch no more

I got the idea from all the jeep speed guys, something like this.

Little Update!


Here are a few pics of the new front bumper and the rear mostly done, just need the mounts for the y strap and a few other things. In the front it needs the frame rail tie in's, side support and the aluminum skid plate.

So i kind of lost track of your build and than you came back in a big way.
I really like the way you worked the rear bumper assembly. This is gonna be super functional and look slick. (except i dont want to have to clean your truck after being at pismo)

Well I really like the way you have went the go fast route rather than a trail/rock rig. Good work. Keep evolving.

lol.. yea i saw that, i sent mine to get done and didnt order any more since people wanted to see pics.. i should have them in a few weeks.


PM me for the price on the rear 4 link. If anyone is interested.



I havent updated this in a while, havent really done anything big.. just fixing little detail before i take it out...

Here is an example of how the rear tire will look mounted.. and NO that is not the rim/tirei will be putting there.. I ordered the same rim and looking for a used spare MT....
