Thanks! I'm only 17, so it took about a month and a half of working at a yogurt shop(I know not the manliest job) to get the money, but it feels a lot better than my parents buying it for me.

That's a great looking bumper! Definitely post pics when you get it installed.

Thanks guys. It does seem very sturdy. I am only going to have a 32 on it now, but I want to tow a trailer that I am building, so I wanted it to be strong.

Congratulations on the new bumper. You will definitely like it.

If you just now ordered it you better sit back and wait for a while... It takes LoD a long time to get your bumper to you. I ordered mine and got it 3 months later. Hopefully it won't be the same for you.

Anyways, I thought you might want to know that if you didn't already know that. Once again, congrats

Sweet! I think you'll like it. There are a few local guys that have that combo and they like it.

The only downside to the design IMO, is that the a-frame just slides over the pivot and can be lifted off. I've seen a few guys drill and tap the pivot for a large bolt and once the carrier is on put a washer and bolt to keep it from "walking away".

Actually it's one of the cheapest and well built tire carriers out there. If you look around you'll see most tire carriers run in the $800-$1000 range. So $600 is a steal really.

I understand where you are coming from working a crap job to pay for it... I work a gas station to pay for mine

but 1000 dollars is the price of this complete setup

Ok, interesting. I'll have to look at it when I get it. Thanks

I like the backup lights on the rampage, but it is pretty expensive.
