Took my wife and three kids to costa rica a few years ago. Had a great time. Spent a few days up in cloud forest near volcanos and then a few days along the pacific coast (town called Quepos). Did some of the zip lining, as well as hiking, bird watching, scuba diving, horse back riding, etc. You will have a great time.

Does the striker go into just the first latch hook or both?

Looking good so far James! Let me know if you need a hand with anything, I'm glad to see that the corner guards worked out for support.

Seeing this build and others reminds me that one of the best mod decisions I made was to keep the spare inside the Jeep. The whole design of the rear end of the Jeep tub just does not want a tire that heavy/big there. We are always working too hard or spending too much money just to make it work. Then we have to live with it back there day after day when trying to get access to the back cargo area.

Thats easy to do if you know for sure you are not going to have passengers and can remove the back seat. If you HAD to have a rear seat what would be your choice of spare tire storage?

I always wanted to mount a spare where the back seat would be, but it seems like it would be kind of a pain to get out, trying to lift and pull out a heavy tire and all.

I had moved my stock tire carrier into the tub and mounted the tire in there for a while and it was a pain to get the tire in and out.

I like having room in the back of my Jeep. There isn't enough without the spare back there. I had a spare in the back for about a week last year and it got old quick (for me anyway). Thats why I built my rear bumper when I did. I needed a place for the 35 and behind the seats wasn't an option for me.

I wasn't saying at all that everyone should do what I did. I just mean that when you can do it, it eliminates all the day to day annoyances to having that thing back there. I also don't carry a spare while on-road, so the full space is available.

I go to a gym, no problem getting the tire out.

I lay my 35 Swamper down flat, one bolt through a lug hole to the center seat belt floor blind nut. I use the 15" wheel pit to hold fluids, and fabbed a removable liftable 'expanded metal' rack above it. It teaches you proper storage techniques and to understand why you have everything you take.
