good job! I need to come up with something now that I put my hardtop on. I had to pull the spare in order to work the hatch...

it is actually a 1.25" solid pipe welded down the side of the bumper there and another pipe that is fitted over it with a grease zerk. I welded a bot to the top of the solid pipe and but a nut on there to be a little more safe.
