trail corners with bestop carrier

what are some decent non diamond plate rear corner armor to use with the tj bestop tire carrier? i like those poison spyder trail corners but kinda pricey, anything similar that works with oem tail lights and license plate? psc may be my only option.

anyone know if the trail corners will make my tire carrier stronger? i notice they just bolt through the tub, is that enough to help secure these bestop brackets?

i had a set of PSC trail corners, but sold them, so i'm familiar with them. i also have a bestop tire carrier. there's no reason they wouldn't work together....

and that actually goes for any trail corners...you have to drill holes through the tub to install the bestop tire carrier, so as long as you know how to run a drill, the corners aren't an issue.

my main reason for asking is do you think it will strengthen where the brackets bolt through the tube, both brackets are flexing a little when opening and closing the door, the tighter i adjust the large bolt and nut the more it flexes, if i back it off to far it wont sit on the rubber bumpers.

it would definitely strengthen things. have you thought about tack welding the lower mount to the body mount "box" (inside the passenger side fenderwell)?

you know i did think about that because the inside bracket will put force onto that only when opening, closing would cause it to push away, that would be a good job for a little 90amp stick ive got. i had some videos of the "flexing" in my other thread but not sure if anyone seen them, didnt get much help after i posted it. i just hope later on down the road the constant opening and closing wont cause the trail corners to start moving where bolted through. i hate to drill all these holes into this thing but it is what it is i guess, the trail corners should look good, i think im going to get black hardware though it will match the jeep and blend in. i guess they come powder coated black so thats already a plus.
