Would my Jeep look too busy

If I added a rear stinger? I already have the roof rack and other mods and I really don't want the rig to look too busy. I'm not a fan of the swing out carriers and I threw my spare (35 12.50) in the roof rack and I think it looks a little goofy.




With the tire in the rack

First off, sexy jeep. That is one of the coolest ones I've seen and it's deffinitly "your own". I screenshotted it to get some ideas

But to answer you're question a rear stinger would look good. It doesn't look too busy as it is, and i think it would all blend. And if all else fails and it doesn't look how you want it you can send it to me

With a rear stinger, you could delete both the stock tire carrier and the roof rack.

Well I do use my roof rack when I camp with my family. Two kids in car seats and a girlfriend leave little room inside for gear.

With the amount of junk I carry, I doubt even a roof rack would do the job.

Do you notice the weight of the rack and wheel up there on the road? I guess that would be my only concern.

Cmon dude. If she didn't need 3 suitcases for a weekend camping trip, you would have more room for beer.

I like roof racks, personally. I think the rear stinger would go with the whole theme you got going.

That brings me to my other dilemma, I can't decide if I should paint the stinger green or black!

Paint it black, the cage looks good in green but too much green will start to look tacky I think.

I think it would look good painted the same color as the body.

Thank you! I never thought about painting it to match the body, that would look awesome!
