Just saw that you've got 315s on there, you might want to add support to your tail gate door. Those put a lot of weight on stock hinges.

Nice Ride. My buddy just did the black wheel thing, painted them himself and put on the Nitto Terra Grapplers. Your ride looks great!

:cool: I'd get an AEV Procal Module, add some Daystar bumpstops and put a bumper support, under the spare and your gate hinges will last !!

:cool: Take the weight of the spare ,off the tailgate hinges--


Thanks everyone

What is a bumper support?
Depends on the tire size and whether or not you're getting a swingaway tire carrier-





It's adjustable and limits the "downforce" of heavier/stock spares and relieves stress on the spare carrier/hinges !

:cool: Heh Heh, no I don't think anyone makes it, to cheap


can you order that or is it something you made?
One 5/8" x 3" carriage bolt one nylock (under bumper) and one hex nut-drill hole in bumper, adjust bolt--

Put a little dab of grease on the ROUND HEAD to ease the tire tread on/off--thats it--
