Today I changed my mind on the rear bumper. I was going to go with the Smittybuilt XRC rear bumper/carrier to match my front bumper....but things change during a build I'm learning. Had the XRC rear all mounted up and I just did not like the looks of it on the TJ....nothing specific I can point out. It just did not work for me, so I returned it. I went a totally different route now....ordered up a Genright Boulder Series swing down carrier in black. Added the rear mounting plate and reinforcement plate and the LED back-up lights that fit into the plate, these will work great since I am going with recessed LED's from TNT on the full corners. This carrier/bumper just looks rugged and I think it will work well for toting a 37" spare.
The TJ is rolling now on the 31's.....it is at the exhaust shop getting a little exhaust tweaking done. Lift, steering, gears, diff covers, axle shafts, CTM's have all been completed. The rear bumper/carrier should be here by Tuesday and installed. The TNT fenders, corners, sliders should be here around Thanksgiving. I will then get those powder coated back and installed. Then I get to mount the 37's and finally see it transformed from stock. Can't wait. I should have more pics up ina day or two. Holidays will slow my progress a bit I'm sure.
