Hah! I was just thinking the same thing. I've been looking for a tire carrier as well and was considering the Bestop Highrock one but this one looks really nice and buying it local in Yakima would make it even better.

It was built by Dez at Wuildbuilt Fab in Yakima. I found him on Ebay. The back is his standard rock bumber with swing out tire carrier. He can add Jerry can mounts to the sides of the A frame. I have a pair of rock sliders of his that I have yet to install. I am happy with the construction these are well built bumpers. They showed up with zero mounting holes. I had to locate and drill all the holes in the bumpers. I also had some shipping issues. He kept telling me next week, next week, next week. They did arrive and I do like them. I can't complain about the price either $900 for front, rear, swingout, sliders and 4 clevises.

Little more work on Junior today. My nephew Cole helped me take of the OE steps and install rock sliders. We also painted the frame rails, skid plates and the ugly light bezels. All black now.

I ordered a Superior Axel & Gear Super 35 Kit and a set of 4.56 gears from Savvy Offroad. Gerald treats you right. After my trip abroad I'll get back to work on Junior.

Started coxcombing the rollcage parts a couple weeks ago. I have finished the rear cage components. It takes 45' of 550 cord to cover 1' of rollcage. I have used 250' on the three pieces and it has taken about six hours.

You posted "Cops Inspection". I don't understand what you are asking.


Not a fan of eggnog either. I have been tipping a few Linnys Honey Weiss.

A salvaged vehicle must be inspected by an officer before it can be registered and plates issued in Iowa.

Wild Built Fab in Yakama WA. I am not sure if he is still building Jeep parts. He sold out and the new guy was having a little trouble last I had heard.
