Can you post a few pics of the modified brackets? I want to ditch my Exogate and Savvy rear bumper for something with less overhang and that will hold a 37'' tire.

Once a month it is.

Fun little notch at the top of Wa$hita.





Always just got wedged in there in the past







Hopefully it warms up in the next week. I need to change all the fluids, adjust parking brake, figure out the hydro assist before Flat Nasty

OK TJ: Here is the Genright Bracket. It is supposed to have 4 bolts, but I am only running 2 because I butchered the bracket. Been running them for 18 months with no problem. I am going to order a new set so I can get a third bolt in. There is a high and low set on the stinger, but with the rails you can only run the lower setting. I have the aluminum one, so you can tell it bent when I slid into a tree last weekend and bent the tabs. a hammer fixes it though and the stinger goes right back into shape.

Hope this helps and let me know if you need any other pics.

Perfect. The 2 mounting positions you're referring to are on the bumper correct? I see what you're saying there. 2 bolt holes, one higher, one lower, you use the lower one and then modded the bracket. I would feel more confident with the 3rd bolt in there too but I guess its working fine.

One more question. Is it a pain in the *** folding up and down the carrier with a tire in it? Mine isn't a daily driver and the only time I really open the back is for the dogs.

I like the idea of being able to take the stinger off with just 2 bolts and running no spare.

Correct, on the bumper. I could not figure out how to run it on the higher without cutting the tub rails, and that was not going to happen. I got Nylock nuts from Fastenall and check them religiously, but a 3rd will make me feel more comfortable.

Not really, but I don't run a top unless I have my kid with me and conditions require it. It takes slightly longer than my old swing out, but the advantages far outweigh the extra hassle for myself.

This is key for me. It takes less than 2 minutes to remove the stinger and strap the spare into the back. without the spare on, the aluminum stinger is not more than 10 lbs.

Thanks Holaday. I have some interest in my Savvy rear bumper and exogate so once those are gone I'll be doing this.

Do you know how much more the steel version weights compared to the aluminum? The aluminum is $$$ compared to the steel. Cheapest I've found the steel is $650 or so without the bumper plate.

Ordered up the TNT outboard kit tonight. For those that have done it, what shocks/length do you recommend?
