More to follow after the TDS Safari....

I will defiantly be following this. I have been looking at my rear bumper for months trying to figure out the math and placement. I can tell it should be placed to the right side of the factory hinge and about even spacing from tail gate. it looks like there could be some clashing with the tail light on the right. and some flush light might be a solution for clearance. I think there is a market for TJ/LJ owners as there is nothing else out there that will open with the tail gate.

Yeah flush mount tail lights are key. I purchased some savvy 4x4 Led lights. When in the correct location there is a conflict.

Thanks! I know the Mopar bumper looks good too but I like the Warn bumpers a bit better since I already owned a set!

Default carrier placement

this is the rear mopar bumper/jk tire carrier swingout created by Greg at AEV. the placement of the carrier is perfect. it has a perfect motion of travel and does not hit the tail lights although you will need some flush mount style lights for this to work. also its tucked up nice and tight to the rear of the jeep which i like, very little gap between the rear window/gate and the tire.

also this really is the way to go if you have the time and patience to work with it. all the AEV accessories work with the tire carrier. One thing you'll want to keep in mind is that you'll need additional support plates from the bumper to the frame to deal with the stress of the spindle at this location. this is very important for longevity.

That is a nice combo. Has the Mopar bumper also been modifed to include the 2" receiver? I like the Mopar rear bumper but always thought they looked odd with a standard towbar mounted below them. Integrating the 2" receiver hitch is key IMHO.

Cheers

Here are some new pics with LED tail lights. We will be fine tuning another Warn bumper next week.
