Had a little photochop done. I can not decide if I like the looks of a spare tire carrier or not. It'd be nice to just have the spare handy for whenever I need it.


But then I'm also REALLY liking the Genright rear crossmember. I can also get 4 led reverse lights, which is perfect for when I get my flush led brake lights. Opinions on either?

Personally I went tire carrier, if you stay flat get flush mount tail lights.

I was originally going to get the savvy shallow mounted LEDs because I couldn't find anything else I liked. But with this cross member it has reverse lights, so I can just get normal led brake lights.

Decisions decisions...

I think it looks better with the spare tire on the back. That Genright crossmember is a big waste of money in my opinion. Get a tire carrier bumper or just go bumperless with tow hooks on the frame like I did. I think the Rokmen bumper looks better than the Genright anyway since it caps the sides.

Savvy tail lights are an even bigger waste of money.

I agree with pretty much all of this, except I wouldn't go bumperless because I don't care for the look. Just my opinion.

Any tail lights is a waste of money IMO, but I like the looks of it I'm not liking the points on the crown bumper. Maybe a different one will strike my fancy. Or a tub mounted carrier. I could use my old tailgate carrier and put it in the cargo area, but I would need to move my tool box. Hmmm.

Oh, and Ty, you are the most indecisive person I have ever met, even more than myself.
