One thing I learned long ago especially with aftermarket jeep products..... You get what you pay for.... Save up and get the or-fab

I want to say somewhere in the ball park of $500 for rear bumper with 2" hitch, dring tabs, grade 8 hardware and then the swing away with high lift mount. He makes one for Jerry cans if that's what you would want.

I don't have any pictures yet (have to wait till spring break to put it on, college life is hard ) but I'd recommend thedirtworx on eBay. Great customer service and good sturdy looking bumper/tire carrier. There's a few other members on the forum with his stuff and they are very happy. He will customize it for you as well if you want something a little different. I ordered one with a custom hi-lift mount. Just a suggestion so you know what's out there

No problem Timberline! Glad to help! Greatest part about Nates is its Made in the USA! It's a great product and sturdier then hell! One of my selling points when looking at other relatively cheaper options for the bumper and swing away was his bumper. The other ones I had looked at, the bumpers were not as diesel as his. I seriously feel bad for anyone that rear ends me.
