basicly looking for a cheap/reliable swing out tire carrier. Cheap so i can save more $$$$$$$ for the lift I want to get.

Distorted, I have their rock crawler version of their bumper, built on the same set up...works great...makes a little noise in the tire carrier, but can take a beating...if you have any more questions just let me know.

Yeah i know smittybilt and Rugid Ridge are the same deal. Just not to happy with how low the tubular one hang's down and i like the look of the rock style better.

I just got that bumper last month and I have no complaints. It was easy to install and does the job.

Quadrachek has a hefty shipping surcharge. Ouch. I'm gonna look into the one on Ebay maybe.

I got mine from a shop in town for 270.00. Looking through different magazines it seems like they all run 299. So it's up to you. Everyone has positive and negative comments about each company. I've never had a problem with Quadratec myself but I know some have. On the other hand I will never order from 4wheelparts again. Bunch of freakin IDIOTS there.

I wish there were shops around me that had Jeep parts. I really need a rear bumper by next week so I am looking myself. Those rear bumpers seem like good deals on either one. Just looking for the best price w/ shipping. I like qtec for the shipping. Order in the morning and its there the next day. I just think their prices are a little high on certain items. I'm looking at MT classics right now and they are way overpriced.

How do you like that? I had concerns about how sturdy it was and how it mounts to the body.
