Some things I noticed with my set up that might help someone else:

The rear bumper I have is the rugged ridge xhd modular matching. It has a deep space for spair tires. The teraflex hd carrier has settings for stock tire. Because of this bumper, you may set your 35 on the stock size setting and it still has pleanty of space. This, in turn, will give you more window space. I will show a picture of the adjustment soon.

With this tire carrier, it has holes for the teraflex third break light adaptor. If those holes are drilled just slightly bigger, the delta lug nut lights fit nicely.

That's nice to know. I have the RR XHD rear bumper on my wish list to match my front bumper. Since I'm using the stock tire mount on the TF hinged carrier along with my stock bumper, my spare actually hits the bumper, although i can still close the tailgate.

Looks like with the RR bumper, I won't have to worry about getting the TF mount to raise it higher.

Oh I see. That probably helps stabilize it from vibration.

I did add the Daystar tailgate bump stop since the backspacing pushes the wheel out farther, but I guess the bumper itself is also acting as a vibration dampener. Still, I'm not crazy about the tire making contact with the bumper. May push me to get that RR bumper sooner rather than later.

Lol it'll hold over until you decide its time.
