Yikes that was a bad idea. It flexed the door too much I could see the door slightly twisted. Plus I could now hear a noise coming from the rear.
It also extended the tire out from the jeep so there was about 4-5 inches between the tire and the jeep, I didn't think it looked good. So I removed it and am sending it back now.
I ended up cutting about 4 inches off of the pumper and was able to get the 33" on the stock tire bracket. I still am hearing a noise coming from the rear so I think I am going to have to get a bumper with a swing arm.
