Spare/Carrier Removal??

Just ordered a Finish Line West rear bumper and am planning on removing the factory spare tire carrier.....

I think I read on here somewhere they sell a "kit" to plug the holes? I've not run across this or removed my factory set up yet....someone please help

Thank you

I just put the bolts back in the holes. Not a big deal as the spare covers up the tailgate.

Congrats on the FLW bumper! You will love it!

Also if you remove the wire for the third brake light that will leave a 1"hole, I went to Lowes and bought a plastic plug that fits right in there, most hardware or home supply stores should have them.
