Thanks Lu . The black rims are coming off next time I am home , and the champions are going back on . I didnt have enough time to swap the rims over , and I want to put two new or really good used BFG's on the front . I am hunting for a second set of 35 BFG's in good shape for the trailer and the front but they are tough to come by .

Any reason why you're wanting to drop carrying a spare?

Reason I ask is I think that once my 37's go on this winter...I only plan on buying 4 tires and 4 bead locks. I'll sell the Exogate and Savvy receiver bumper as well. I hit the bumper EVERY time I'm on the trail and I would like to get rid of as much overhang as I can and go with something like this http://www.rokmen.com/rokmen-rear-bumper.html instead. Oh and trailgate.

Thanks Nate , the noise difference is dramatic with the doors off . Kimbo and I can actually talk , where before we couldnt. I did pick up an odd squeak on the drivers side , but I think its the coil spring creaking . The Savvy springs and new isolators should take care of the noise .

I think a 35 will destroy the tailgate , and highly impair my rear view . I dont care for most swing aways but I do like the exo gate and have considered making one . I carry a nice plug kit , and I plan to add a tube and compressor to the mix . Last but not least the trailer will most likely have a spare mounted on it .

I like the Rokmen crossmember and trailgate , it makes for a nice clean combo . I think a tube , patch kit and compressor would get us out of most situations . Worst case scenario is you may have to borrow a spare to get back to camp .

The first picture was taken a week or two after I bought it and the second picture is from today . Kind of neat to look back and see how much it has changed .

Looks good. I have to say this, please carry a spare. Plug kits and all that are great to carry too, but nothing beats a spare when you NEED it.

I haven't made a firm decision yet , kind of thinking out loud . For local runs a tube , plugs and compressor should be fine . But for cross country trips I would have a spare on the trailer . I haven't ruled out making something like the exogate , time to do some reading while I am back up North .

I carry the spare for getting back moving quickly; I don't want to be down for a long time on the trail, causing a backup. I figure that I can repair the wounded tire later or take it to a tire shop, and in either case be in better shape than I would if I had to do a rushed field job.

Not a bad point , and I dont want to be "the" guy who stops up the trail . Its funny , I hadnt considered running without a spare until the 35s showed up . I cant put the spare where yours is as I need the storage for Kimbo and the kids . The rear tailgate would suffer a quick death under the added weight and leverage , so that leaves the exo gate as an option or put the spare on the trailer .

Either would be a solid choice, but I'd run an ExoGate - or a home-fabricated version of one - if I didn't have my spare on the cargo deck. That would keep your back seat/trunk open, and you wouldn't have to take the trailer on every run just to have your spare available.

I really like this option from Genright but damn!! It's expensive.

I also question wether this would interfere with the Savvy Rub Rails or not. I had to modify my Exogate to fit my Savvy Rub Rails.

If I could, I would be running that in steel with a tiny plate at the bottom to cover the where the rock ledge and bottom of the rubber would meet. G if you want, we can work out a prototype for you to build for me for the practice to build yours...
