    Not for sale, but here's what I built over the summer:

    Still room for improvement (the backup sensors detect the spare as an obstacle, and most of the paint flaked off this last month).

    I had a TAG bumper on my truck when I first got it. I sold it as soon as I got home. THe actual rear bumper was fine...if not a little hack welded. The big problem i had was the tire carrier. The hing sagged a lot, It wobbled horribly and the latch mechanism was a joke.

    This is the only pic I have of my old TAG. I sold it a couple weeks after I got home from my road trip out to pick it up.

    Another option out there is Bucksnort bumpers. I sell his rear bumper. He does not offer a rear tire carrier but I have seen him and a few others install the Hummer tire carrier and It is by far the most sturdy tire carrier that I have seen.

    375.00 + 50$ Shipping and no wait time

    What kind of Hummer? Would this work?

    It's usually an H2 carrier, shortened.

    That's an aftermarket carrier that can work. It needs the left side latch assembly and the hinge side is kinda iffy. Never seen one like that so don't know how the hinge attaches. Maybe weld it on

    I'm shopping for one now....did anyone ever get a 2nd gen up to RLC? otherwise I think I'm leaning toward a maxterra rear tire carrier bumper.... if RLC's got a blueprint for a gen2, it might be easier to have him do it since he's already doing my front bumper...

    I may be wrong but I don't think anyone has ever hit him about a rear bumper just the front. I would have probably went with him if he had a Gen 2 option when I was ordering.

    That's not necessarily true. I *can* afford it, I'm just not sure that putting a winch back there would be the best idea given my other plans for where the spare tire previously dwelled...

    I also went the custom route. Scorpion Motorsports in Las Vegas.

    Pros- Totally custom, you get what you want.
    Cons- Totally custom, you pay for what you want.

    The wrap around is a nice look. Question though, how is the corner supported?i know you guys don't have many ninja rocks out west, but over this way the corners take a lot of abuse. I'm just wondering how they'd survive a hit and not deflect into the body.

    I'm not one of dem super technical types but I'll take more pics for ya. It seems pretty ridged from the couple trails I've done since the install. However it seems the ladder was unnecessary, so I probably wouldn't go that route again.

    I popped on the creeper and it looks like along with the center bumper mounting locations on the frame, as this is a one-piece bumper, it also mounts to the body where the OEM bumper steps were. Sorry I didn't grab any pictures, handling my phone would have cased me to spill my scotch.

    Whoa, just noticed my picture isn't showing up. Did I screw something up when I originally uploaded it, or is my super sweet HP Livestrong edition getting long in the tooth?

    It's showing up now. Weird. I'll chalk it up to my outdated hardware.

    The mounting bolts? M14x1.5. I replaced when I installed my bumper. I forget the length though. Fastenal is your friend

    Thanx Jeff , I can crawl under and get a close length measurement just wanted to get 'em before bumper is ready. Probably start shooting some Free-All on the bolt's and maybe a few love tap's with the 2lb persuader for a couple week's ;)
