So far it's held up great, I found some hitch pins to use instead of bolts on one side, which has made accessing the rear a lot easier!!!
The jack would work on the inside if I had one of the smaller jacks, just think that the tall one would look silly standing vertically. I have since cut a hole in a tennis ball and put on the end. Plus the jack would probably block the view of the tail lights the way I have it set up.
I wish I would have had a Jerry can to measure before I built this (I now have two). The carrier is deep enough to fit one in on both sides, but the radious cuts it so it doesn't fit. I am trying to figure out a way to mount them on top, but I'm going to 37's by summer, so I will wait. When I do that, I'll weld in a center bar and gusset the post that attaches to the tire!
I used a buddies JD2, very simple to use, just plan and measure 5 times! There is a good write up on pirate 4x4 on measuring and Pre-planning. Not to mention there are plenty on here.
... I guess I'm gonna have to fix that too…….
