Mine certainly needs a paint job/good touch up! Really didn't notice that it was all that bad until I posted the pictures.

I'm probably going to try and get it powder coated over the winter maybe (or Monstaliner).

Just ignore the chips in the paint...lol

Just took the wires from behind the contact points on the tailgate and extended them up to the light. Carefully routed it through the hinge area to keep it hidden but ensure it doesn't get stretched or pinched.

Easy really.

Don't have much in the way of pictures of it so I'll have to get some more tomorrow some time. I have the LoD Signature series tire carrier. So far, it's pretty nice. Only thing I haven't liked about it is the time it took the guy to ship it to me (I even had to remind him to ship me all of what I ordered), and there needs to be some sort of rubber or nylon between where the swing arm meets the bumper where the latch is. It squeaks a little on some roads out here.

Yes. I have them wired so they only come on when it's in reverse. However, I can override it and turn them off if they're blinding the crud out of people.

A few more shots of the LoD tire carrier.



Frame tie-ins:



spindle:


55watt reverse lights (they're Pilot lights)


The hitch goes all the way through the frame:


Latch:


Has a mount for a Hi-Lift. It has a lot of different mounting holes for adjustability. (the missing bolt for the rack is because the holes didn't line up just right. Only slightly off)


Two pads to keep snug against the tailgate:

I looked at the LoD bumpers too when I was trying to figure out what I wanted to go with. They are very nice but get pricey pretty quick.

With the Ground Pounder I figured it would provide some opportunities for me to "fab" up some accessories for it. I am hoping to get around to that sometime this winter!

I like the smitty built bumpers. They dont appear to be the most attractive things, but i know they are going to hit rocks and thats what i do with them. They have stood up to the challenge so far.

I would like to see more pictures of that best top one that hooks to the tub instead of the bumper. That looked slick.

Safety 3rd!
