      Will the rear bumper have some kind of spare tire mount?

          Doesn't hurt to ask right?? Me personally I would love to see integrated protection similar to what is seen on the JK bumper, Id love to see a swing out tire carrier... personally I like the half doors/dual swing outs vice the single arm. Integrated fold down tables as an option, It would be great to see a fuel tank option to fill the existing spare tire well, built in steps. maybe a built in lock box for recovery gear.... just a couple ideas. Maybe others could make recommendations as well. Thanks for doing what you do!!!

            Seeing something that works with backup sensors and the factory backup camera would be a nice touch too.

                For sure a spare tire carrier either built on or an add on option and cut outs on the corners for steps like the chevy silverado would be great. Obviously light cut outs are always nice and please make it compatible with parking sensors. The front bumper not working with them is not a big deal since they only work in reverse but the rears really do need to work.

                  i would like to see an integrated rear bumper system just like you guys make for the jeep jk. there is nothing else that slick or modular on the market for jeeps and key word is slick your jk bumpers are the industry standard follow suit with the ram.

                  as far as the tire carrier that should go without saying provisions must be made to carry a spare in a reliable fashion for those of us that use our beds for other things. support for a 37" and even the 40" tire should be a mandatory. i'm currently running the 37's but i'm either selling my truck or or upgrading it to the 40" kit as soon as its released as our plans have changed slightly and could benefit from the larger tire and a shorter overall truck like a regular cab.

                    If the bumper gets a spare carrier please make sure it does not impede the rear backup camera. Plus I've always liked an offset look for spares on tailgates.

                    Stunt Man, you're selling it?! You just got that thing!

                      Flush mounted or frenched LED back-up lights would be a great option. Integrated winch option perhaps??

                      Cheers

                        i couldn't agree more the more integrated the better flush mount led floods out back and a rear winch is a must with a truck thats as tricky to turn around as these big ol rams. learned this the hard way with my power wagon a few times.

                          Putting a winch out back would be too much I think. The better option would be to get one of those hitch mounted winch kits, but thats just my opinion.

                            I've actually given some thought to the back winch, and in theory if the spare tire is mounted to the bumper, then the spare tire location might make a good spot for a rear mounted winch. I'm sure there would have to be some tweaking, but in theory it should work.

                              rear winches are usually more useful from a recovery standpoint there are ways around it sort of but imo there is no real easy way to duplicate what a rear winch set up can provide you if you are stuck. its a big expense and i have no idea what it would mean from a designing or engineering stand point.

                              the size width and weight of these trucks can offer up some tricky recovery situations on tighter trails depending on the terrain ahead of you so having a rear winch could be a very good thing. also having a rear winch on a big mid duty truck like this offers up some nice capability as far as working is concerned just my .02 i for one hope mr. dave is taking that into consideration when designing that rear bumper.
