Click free. I like the attention to detail.

Honestly I'd trust the factory tank before an aluminum fuel cell. Those plastic tanks are damn near impossible to break.

I've seen countless fuel cells fallen off, burst open, ripped entirely off their mounting brackets etc. I've never seen a hole in a stock tank yet. Dented to the point that it causes weird fuel gauge readings yes, but not entirely failed.

As far as fume go, if/when I feel like running a full soft top I'll probably extend the breather to outside the vehicle and it should be good to go.

Onto my read bumper I more-or-less made:

I did have Eddie/BESRK cut holes for and weld in the hitch and 1x3" D-ring shackle mounts as I don't have a plasma cutted to make quick work of that. I got a Rokmen bumper mounting kit and did that myself. Still need to put the spring shackle hangers on the bumper.

I am in the process of fabing a custom bumper with a tire carrier. I want to know where to find the hinge and latch for the tire carrier. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance.

Yeah, so I have run the search, read many threads and haven't really found what I'm looking for. Thanks for the idea though.

BTW I have looked through this thread and I am not the first to ask for some insight on a particular project.

I was so totally going to do that cnsole after seeing your write up. But, my fiance totally hated the idea. I feel I should consider her input since she does actually help me work on the Jeep all the time.

My RHD TJ - Savvy equipped... And loving it!

I drive on the right side, what's wrong with you?

You didn't search very hard.... http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f37/rear-bumper-w-swingout-tire-carrier-follow-along-101332/ . BESRK has stated countless times in there where he gets all of his parts.
