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.

Put your bacon where your mouth is!

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....
