That would explain it then! I was seriously considering pulling the handbrake and busting a 180 so I could turn around and catch up with him, but I was late for truckin school... two hours late as a matter of fact. Luckily they don't care all that much if you're late.

Hell they've got 1500 of my dollars, and I don't get any instructions on anything hardly. I had one instructor named blue the other day, other than that... just a PTI (or whatever it's called) video. They better not care! So far it's just 90% trying to remember what they taught me on the MTVRs in the Navy. Remember, I was a dozer operator, so a big rig isn't my specialty.


Also... what would you guys recommend, since I can't decide now.

The Poison Spyder BFH bumper?


Or the Metalcloak... whatever it's called bumper?


The Metalcloak bumper is about 4 times more as far as price. The bumper will have a Mile Marker SEC8 Scout winch on it, and two TJM 160HID long range lights on it in front of the winch.

They'll both be black so disregard the bare metal on the Poison Spyder bumper.



I would ask in my build thread, but there are more people in here, and you guys would actually be able to see my rig in person to appreciate the decision you helped me make.

I'd get the savvy bumper, no logo to fill in (I gotta pet peeve about companies cutting their logos into their products) And, savvy makes nice stuff

What kind did you get? $140.00 sound like a smoking price.

Yeah they make a swing away style that holds cans. They bolt up to the tub and swing out with the tailgate, you see them on a lot of YJ's.

I think I know what you talking about . If I get the Swing Down Tire Carrier I'm going to have him make it with the gas tanks on the side like yours. I know ill need to take off the gas cans before I get to the tire but I can deal with that... I'm open for good ideas if any one has one ..

I like the rock crawler style like the pic you posted also but I'm always opening my back door for something. just seems like the drop down would always be in the way?

Whatever you buy or have made, be sure to put some thought into the latching mechanism. I absolutely hate the way mine latches - I have to hit the tire with my shoulder to unlatch it, and my wife can't open it at all. Before I modified the latch with a heavier spring it would open on it's own on the freeway - scared the $#!^ out of a guy on a motorcycle once who was lane-splitting.

I've been looking at a number of different carriers to replace mine, and haven't found one I really like yet.
