Got the slider bars on the sides and the rear stinger done today as well as made all the pivots for it.
Tire carrier holds the tire off the ground when dropped down I'll put limiting strap on it as well as it'll either hinge to rear or side sliders....haven't decided yet but will finish ot between now and Thursday.

Made the hinge bracket 3/16th and 1/4" with gussets. Got a ratchet strap for the tire and I'll get a lock join for the hinge and a cable with lock for the tire....will finish it up tomorrow.

Looking good. I'm a real big fan of the rear stinger.

Not sure how much you've been out and about with it but do you find the drop down rear stinger/tire carrier makes it a pain to access the tailgate and things in the rear of the Jeep?

Its a 2dr all I keep in that little cubby is trail gear which I reach right over and grab. I'm doing locking smooth hitch pins there and no it drops down SIMPLE hangs below the door line and doesn't sit on the ground.
Its simple to use.

Cool, I was thinking about trying to make up a hitch receiver spare tire carrier that dropped down in this fashion, just wasn't sure how in the way it would be. THanks for the feedback!

OK been asked spec list and what's been done in a nutshell....
07 jk sport
Drive train:
Swapped d44 Rubicon axles in with lockers and gears, cut off all mounts on axles and welded synergy brackets on all heavy duty. Raised the shock mounts 1.4" in rear built a HD skid for them as well as welded track bar mounts front and rear. Did rear upper control arm mounts HD and moved front lower shock mounts out 1" and up 1.5" maybe a smidge more as well as rotated the mount side ways right to left versus front to back.
Did synergy ball joints, sleeves, c-gussets up front with HD control arm mounts. Made custom bump cans on axles for bottom out. Front has RCV axles and rear has ten factory chromoly .

Suspension:
Synergy 4" progressive springs, fox reservoir shocks, making arms right now and getting ready to stretch rear 8" and front 2" for a 10" total making a 106" wheel base.

Tires/wheels:
Race line monster bead locks 17/9 with bfg 37" km2

Front bumper:
Chopped front frame 3" and did poison spyder bfh bumper

Rear:
Chopped rear frame 7" flipped cross member recessed hitch built bumper off this as a unit then rear stinger tire carrier.

Side armor:
3/16 plate with 1.75 dom tubes for laying into canyon walls with it wraaping under body to protect from landing on rocks as well.

Lights:
Custom rear panels flush mount with led lights front hid conversion

There's ALOT more stuff modified I've done but this is the basics.

Went and cycled it to check lines and clearance, will go a bit further but daughter got scared so we stopped...wheels were more than firmly planted still no rocking so a little more tweaking and it'll be set till stretch and ori shocks.
The back still has a fair bit more to go as well as the front shocks weren't maxxed yet.

Got some trail time finally...shook out the jeep and found a couple areas that need to be addressed with the flex...my shock up front is still hitting at droop even with it being moved outward an inch. My rear locker lost power and I know where, it was a issue to begin with so it was expected.......

Worked flawless off to run motino to john bull then Holcomb to dishpan on Saturday...be a long day with many many nasty extra credit lines...
Almost flipped it on its back Saturday...lol was fun and a rush.

Well had a busy day......
Did the sliders 3/16 hot rolled plate bent to contour the body, nut serts then connected it to the rear panel. Used 1.75 Dom tube and a gusset in the center...all welded and painted.

Relocated the evap canister, made a extended hitch adapter for the rack to clear the tire, mounted the ridgid lights up front and made my rear bolt on plate then did my cab antenna :rock:
