Thats why I bought a bumper/carrier that opens with the tailgate, I couldn't think of a situation where I would need the carrier open and not the tailgate. I bought the ACE bumper/carrier and it has a similar setup. I would think the RR linkage would take care of your issues.

My concern with those is that it will pull down and bind on door hinges. Anyone have any experience with using these??

It looks like it is adjustable so, if adjusted properly, that should avoid the binding. I would recommend emailing Rugged Ridge, or calling, and inquire about the binding issue. Maybe even look for other reviews online.

Thats a good question, I would still say to call RR directly, otherwide you would have to find someone that has actually used it to get a real review, from anyone else, its just an opinion.
