AEV Rear Bumper/Carrier - Does It Rattle?

Simple as that! Does it rattle?

I have the Smitty rear bumper/carrier and I can't wait to rip this damn thing off. I absolutely cannot stand the rattle any longer. It's been a year and I've had enough. No more of this nonsense.

I love the looks and add-ons the AEV has and I'm hoping current owners can chime in and let me know if they have any rattles either on-road or off-road.

Thanks in adavance.

I have the carrier, which has been on for well over a year. no rattles!
It's design is such that should a rattle appear, you could simply adjust it and eliminate it. It really is well built and designed, and I don't regret spending the money for a minute.

I have the AEV tire carrier mounted on my 12 MW3 COD which came stock with the AEV front and rear bumpers. Never had a rattle and its been on for about a year now.
