New TJ ARB rear bumper and swing out carrier
 
New TJ ARB rear bumper and swing out carrier

Is anyone running or planning on running the new TJ rear bumper from ARB? I like that it is much slimmer than the the old version. Having the tire attached to the tailgate is nice and reminds me of AEV's setup.

Here is a PDF of the bumper.

Looks good, but I would be concerned with the 2 different mounting locations. Especially if you had a body lift. The bumper is going to move a different direction than the body at some point and unless there is something I can't see about the mount on the tailgate, I could see some sort of failure here from opposing forces. Would be fine driving around town jeep.
