ALSO there is NO loss in protection as the plate still sticks out past the body and when I get the Genright bumper plate it will be a little but more too.
PLUS... I like the way it looks! haha

Haven't crunched any numbers, but is an extra few degrees really going to hinder you on the trail? And if you're in an area where your rear bumper is getitng hung up on rocks, your front tires will likely be on the ground to pull you through, your suspension will droop enough in the rear to get traction, or momentum will slide ya over. Seems the loss in protection isn't worth the extra few degrees that would only really apply if you were in a super tight gully like this --> \_/ (pretty right?)
On the other hand I love the clean look
Feel free to educate me, just my take on it.

Don't forget that you need new taillights, can't use the stock ones.
I have the same carrier sitting in the garage back home, can't wait to get it on. Are you going for the aluminum one or steel?

Im running NO REAR BUMPER now
So after looking for a rear bumper that I liked with no success, I did some research and found that a lot of people have taken their rear bumpers off completely for the best possible departure angle. So I decided to do it.
Best choice ever. I love it. I will be investing in the GenRight rear bumper plate with tow hooks AND the GenRight tire carrier that does NOT use the rear bumper. They can both be seen in the links below. I am ALSO looking for a way to get the gas tank up a bit.
When I took the rear bumper off the plate behind it was kind of rusty, so I scraped, sanded, primed and painted it.
