Looks good Doyle. You seem to be running with that "just empty ever pocket " moto. The jeep is looking great. Now it's time to go out and play.

Hah, that's it for a while (boss's orders). I need to figure out how to get the receiver hitch back on, anyway.

Does the rear bumper drop lower than factory so that the hitch no longer fits? Also, where you able to retain the factory spare tire mount or did you need an adapter to lift the tire?

Thank You,

I originally had rubbing but just before I installed the ARB bumper and winch I changed my front springs to the heaviest front factory spring and no more rubbing. Jeep came with '14' springs and I went to '19' as the last numerals in the part number.

It's not that it drop's lower - but, the bottom edge of the bumper wraps back under the frame where the hitch mounts. No problems with the spare tire mount.
