Someone with firsthand experience, woohoo! Thanks for posting those pictures. I want it for quite a few reasons - first off I have the high access front bumper and love it, also I need something to hold a 35" spare.
And another reason: I currently have a regular tow hitch that I put a cargo rack on when I go camping, usually put the cooler on it and such. The problem with this is once its on, I can't open the rear hatch more than a few inches. Very annoying
After looking at that rear bumper for a while, I think what I want to do is construct some sort of detachable cooler rack that attaches to the bottom of the piece of square tubing that runs vertically down the middle of the spare tire. I'm sure the tire carrier would be beefy enough to handle it, and then my cooler would swing out of the way when I open the rear gate! It would be glorious.
A few questions for you: Is that bottom piece of square tubing open, or is it capped off? Also where did you get it from? It seems as though Quadratec has it for significantly cheaper than everywhere else I've looked. And finally, does any of the documentation that comes with it state weather or not it is rated for towing? I haven't found anything confirming that. Thanks again for the pictures!
