Thanks so much! I love your bumpers and the work you do. The recovery route sucks, but it's getting better daily. I'll likely be getting medically discharged from the Navy, and for that I have mixed emotions. I've already invested 11 years and the stability of a paycheck in this economy is what I'm most worried about. Hopefully there will be some disability benefits I can get for myself and my family. Thanks again for the well wishes!

I have a question, if I missed the answer to this I appologize.....with the swag kit, the latch it comes with holds in the RIGHT side of the tailgate and the existing factory door latch holds in the left side....
with the tire carrier in place, how are you holding in the right side of the tailgate??? I don't see a latch.

Thanks

Sorry for the delay, I haven't been online much recently. I found that the right side latch wasn't needed in my application. I guess if your 'gate rattles you can reuse one of your spare tire bumpers to press between the right side of the tailgate and the tire carrier frame. I have taken this off for the time being and am running with no spare. I'm currently carrying a plug kit and CO2 bottle for roadside tire failures. I plan to make a new swing out that will hold two 5 gallon cans, but I have a few other mods on my plate before I can get to that.
