95JeepDude I'm happy with my smittybilt. I have a 35x14.50 swamped in it. And yea it did rattle. Just use the supplied bump stop and it will be gone. Hocky pics work too. It was a PITA to install. You pretty much have to drop the fuel tank.

what swing out tire carrier/rear bumpers do you suggest?

So i just sold my custom made 160 pound swing out tire carrier that was ripping my rear crossmember from the sheer force when going over bumps.

Well i am now looking for a new one and wanted to know your suggestions. I saw the smittybilt one on a friends yj today and looks really study and not too heavy but heard they are known to rattle a bit.

I really like the look of the fold down tire carrier that i think gen right makes and seems like it takes a lot of pressure off a spindle on one side of the bumper.

i am on a bit of a budget so warn is out of my range.

thanks for any insight!!
