Crawler Conceptz Body mounted tire carrier

hey all,
so for Christmas, brown Santa came by and dropped off a Crawler Conceptz body mounted tire carrier. I was thinking of doing a how to thread but the instructions are pretty easy to follow, so I'll just throw up the photos and stuff I noticed. I went with this tire carrier as it opens with the tail gate and re-enforces the mounts on the tail gate. Also, I don't want a new rear bumper at this time, so there's that.
1. Right off the bat, all of the components were well made and the welds were really solid.



2. With some modification, the 3rd brake light did fit/work with the carrier as did the CB antenna mount that I already had.



All in all, it was an easy install that took no more than 3-4 hours. It took more time to prime and paint it than installing it. the directions were easy to follow, all of the pieces were well made and fit just right. the only little issue was that I couldn't get the nylon lock-nut really tight. I tried an impact wrench and it won't go any further (no biggie really, I may just get a regular nut with a lock washer and some lock-tite to make sure that it's nice and tight)

Looks good and sturdy? Is there any cutting involved?

Yep, it's well made and sturdy as can be. All of the welds were well done and there was nothing flimsy about it.
For just the tire carrier, there is NO cutting involved whatsoever. The only thing that I cut was my after market 3rd light mount to fit on the backing plate
