I wish we had taken some video or pics of the Gatekeeper/end- though obviously not of a certain flat tire episode.

Now...now Rick, it doesn't matter who is in it (as long as I am) and besides we were going the wrong way

Mark, I saw Adrian last night and we talked about this. No he hasn't figured it out and keeps searching forums etc for answers. He has a lot of skills and may put in hydro assist, but would rather figure this out first.

Nice Mark! I did get the warn 3/8 x 80' so glad to see you could fit the other 20' on there. We could have tried it out on Bull last week

TAKE OFF Shrockworks Modular Jeep JK Tire Carrier Rear Bumper
Rebel Off Road has some good stuff in "Open Box" right now. Just don't take that silver (actually thinking about black for the heck of it) hood. (By that I mean you, Nic).

R8DRIZED- don't forget that the OffRoad Expo is coming up in October.
Lucas Oil Off Road Expo | Pomona, CA
There WILL be good deals. I saved $100 on my Pure Jeep sliders plus I negotiated free shipping.
Awesome Jen! I found a front Shrockworks bumper and snagged it!

I'd stay away from anything made in China. They don't have giant boulders to slam it against for testing... No Rugged Ridge stuff on the website. At least that would be decent.

I looked at their website and only saw Spyder and Smitty. Both would be ok if you're only going for looks, but I wouldn't trust either to hold up to a hit on the trails.

It's probably going to be a while before I get around to getting a tire carrier anyway. I'm getting a front bumper next and that will probably be around Christmas. Could get it early if I find a deal at the show in October.

When I do get a carrier, I'll probably end up getting the Teraflex hinge. I also like the OR Fab. Too bad I'm broke right now because someone in the classifieds has the OR Fab for $350.

SPYDER'S Rear JK Bumper includes two (2) 4.75 Ton Silver D-rings that attach to the bumpers mounts which are precision welded from the inside & out for maximum strength & stability while towing or anchoring your Jeep. Your new SPYDER Bumper & Tire carrier is also protected using a durable 2 stage black crinkle powder coating, with a zinc finish so your bumper is sure to last for years to come.

Don't forget- SPYDERS bumper also includes a fully tow capable Class III, 2" receiver hitch which is more than able to tow the heaviest loads your Jeep can handle, and can secure all valuable hitch mounted accessories such as a Dirt bike, Cargo Basket and many other accessories.

That does looks like the best way for me to go since I already have the smitty carrier. I meant to take a better look at your carrier last Saturday and kept getting side tracked.

I was gonna recommend the or-fab carrier with the rotopax until I looked at the price. I hope I didn't pay that much.
