high lift instead of rear bumper for 8$ (pics)

so i thought the rear looked a little empty when i took off the rear bumper so...





so i took off the stock rear bumper brackets and used them to mount a high lift where the rear bumper was




got some bolts at the hardware store and made a little mount...





and here you go, the 35 also sits on top of the jack which sits on top of the hitch which is all very sturdy...

passenger side



drivers side




and the finished product... what do you think?



Rusty's 3.25 lift
35x12.5-15 bfg km2
15x8 soft eights
cut front stubby bumper
rough country winch plate
harbor freight 8K winch
Lincoln rear locker
aussie front locker

Nice job none the less.
