It was an eBay seller. Pretty sure they sold out and will be hard to find

if you can make the compressor fit that'll work. If you find a smaller bottle however just leave the compressor where its at and tuck the bottle

If anyone finds or has a savvy aluminum rear bumper for sale please let me know...

I've decided to ditch the warn tire carrier, drop the weight and put the spare in the tub.

Haha. Yeah Angry I haven't decided yet. I really like the Swag Offroad Big Hit V.2 bumper as well as the Rokmen bumper. I don't really mind dragging the Savvy bumper off of every obstable but it wouldn't mind reducing the departure as much as possible. A 4'' stretch and Rokmen bumper would be damn near 90* departure.

After you sell the Warn Tire Carrier you can get a Savvy bumper for the difference. That's what I did. I sold a Road Armor tire carrier for $250 and then paid the difference to Gerald. So I got a Savvy bumper for like $200. If you want to look at it that way.

Then I did the Exogate...

Genright has something similar to the swag v2 bumper as well. I was also considering that to retain the trailer hitch for my trail vice.

It would really help the departure angle and the look without a hitch however

my brother just got the rokmen, although he hasn't installed it yet.

doesn't solve your want/need for a hitch though

If your willing to cut into your frame crossmember you can make a hitch mount almost flush. I've seen some pretty trick custom setups that don't stick out far at all.

That's one reason I bought the TNT crossmember. It completely replaces the stock crossmember. I added a receiver tube to it & it only sticks out a couple inches at most. Just enough for the collar & enough room to get the pin in. I would never do any major towing with it, as I can see it flex when too much weight is added to it, but I have hauled a small trailer with a lawn mower, lumber, & a luggage rack full of fire wood with no issue.

Eh I think Ill either do the bumper with hitch or when I make a storage box for the rear of the jeep add something to attach a vise.

EDIT: on second thought maybe I will consider something like that after seeing Dannos
