thats cool you can install independently. I'm gonna do it all at once but that is nice. How is the tire carrier for opening and closing? Is it too tight and not smooth enough you think? Does the tail gate shake or make a weird noise when you hit a bump? Thanks

The is how the carrier attaches to the frame. The saddle block fits in place of the stock tire carrier for the swing arm to rest against. The stock bumper is notched out for the carrier spindle to fit and a 2 3/4 hole is drilled through the top.

yes ive seen the aev and all the others. my jeep clubs have plenty of jk's and just about everyone has a differant bumper. after seeing all of the differant ones i went with lod because of the look, toughness, and capabilities. the folks in my clubs love the way the jerry cans mount and the trail rack and the high lift. for me it was the best way to go. good luck and let us know what you get.

thnx, I like LoD too. If you could have an AEV, Shrockworks, Expedition One, LoD, Hanson or olympic rear bumper for free....which one would you choose?

I would still choose LoD. AEV doesn't have a good place to mount anything. Can't go wrong with quality, sturdiness, looks, and modability.

i would still choose lod also. like i said i have checked out all of them and it was a toss up between shrockworks and lod. the lod was a little cheaper and i liked how it bolted up better and the way things mounted to it better.

The Olympic Rear Winch Bumper - Don't ask me how I like it yet, I'm in Iraq and the wife just took it in for me and had it installed. Can't wait to get home and play with it! (sorry it's not the best pic)

Shrockworks has various holes in theirs for creative mounting the website says. Seems like mounting is best with shrockworks. I'm gonna take a closer look at LoD again...

I just did this same install this past weekend. I second the thoughts below. My only complaint is it is going to be a Pain in the butt to replace the bulbs on the lights when they go out.

Everything else is solid.

I LOVE it! It is impeccable quality. Much better than the mopar one I had. And the lights are just awesome. It looks great, functions great, and has tons of modability with mounting jacks, jerry cans, and/or cargo carriers to it.

Not going to say it's the best because I have only had the mopar and LoD now, so I can't say from an ownership experience what is best. But I LOVE my LoD.

This bumper allows you to open the rear gate and tire carrier at the same time. http://www.expeditionone.biz/jk_wrangler-1tsrb.html That will be my NEXT bumper when the time is right.

I wanted the LoD but it doesn't work with the oem tow pkg... so, Mopar here I come as it has tow, decent fit, priced around 450-600. I really like exp one stuff. but dayummmm 1300+ is pretty steep.

I have the OEM tow package and the LOD has a reciever hitch, there are two bolts that go into the frame I amde a bracket and mount for my tow hooks to mount into. I have pulled my M-416 Military trailer loaded with no problems at all. I dont see any reason why the tow package should stop you if this is what you want.
