I'm wondering the same thing. I don't know if you have seen this or not, but they have a few pages of info on PDF about the tire carrier. What do you think about it? It doesn't look like it ties into the bumper at all. It looks like heavy hinges and reinforcement at the gate. I bought the winch mount and hoop at their shop and saw the prototype on their Jeep, but I didn't get to look at it long.

From the PDF drawings and photos I'd say it does tie in to the bumper. Pages 4 & 5 show the part mounted to the Jeep in blue with the ball in gold. If you look at page 14 you can see it clearly hooks to the bracket to open and close with the Jeep door.

Looks pretty sweet, be curious to see a final product.

Page 15 and 16 looks like the tube doesn't go through the bumper and to the frame, that's what I meant by tied into the bumper. It looks like everything is held on by the door and hinges.

The carrier attaches to the side pillar via a pivotal hinge sharing only the mounting points with the tail gate hinges. There is absolutely no load on the hinges or tail gate. The only connection to the tail gate is a spherical joint tie rod to allow it to move/articulate with the tail gate opening and closing.
The wide span between the top and lower hinging allows for greater load distribution resulting in a structurally stiff and robust assembly with no vibrations or rattles.
Here are some test fitting pictures showing the kinematics of the system.

Coming very soon. Just sit tight and stay tuned.

If you need a "Test Subject" I work in the "Glass Tower" on the Northeast Corner of Featherstone and I-75.

I like the test subject idea. I'll be getting my JKURX in about 6 weeks.

Are they all going to say 10A on them like the picture shows? I will have an X and wouldn't want my carrier to have a 10A badge on it.

How many pieces will there be to purchase if someone wanted everything?

When will pricing be available?

When will you start selling?

Thanks for your comments.

There will be no badging on the carrier other than the Maximus logo. The Tire carrier is a JK concept.
The carrier will be sold as kits. All configurations will be priced separately.
Pricing will be released early next week.
Orders will be accepted after price release.
Expected ship dates is 3-4 weeks out.

This carrier is a nice looking product.
Very well thought out.

Just curious, will you build them one at a time on the jig?
