Looks good. What tire carrier is that. I was actually strongly thinking about getting the GenRight tire carrier and rear bumper.

They are excellent bumpers....and built out of aluminum as well, so reduced weight!

Did you have it painted or paint it yourself?

The tire carrier alone is $900!!! Damn thats alot. I understand its aluminum, but damn. It does look bad ass, and hell i've wanted soemthing like that for a while but at $900, thats too rich for my blood.

That bumper is sweet looking, but damn man, for $600 bucks that seems like a lot. The combo would be $1500.

Looks good. I like the black paint over the raw they show on the GenRight site. I am really looking at getting this setup but it will have to wait a year. I have over spent my Jeep budget this year.

$1500 is a lot of money but that is about what I paid for my LoD I am running (racks and gas can carriers) so I guess I am acclimated to the high cost of my Jeep.

I was debating between this bumper and the LoD rear bumper but like the weight of this bumper and how close it sits to the body over the LoD.

IMHO if you are going to spend the money I would really consider this setup. With that said I have beat my LOD on a rock or two and it took it in stride but it is one heavy mofo. I ran the trail rack once and had the can carriers on there for about a year but used them only once on the rubicon. (and I didn't need the gas at the end)

Great lookin' setup. I have about a year before I purchase so I will be watching for updates on how it is holding up for you.

'Nuther question about those light holes: how far apart are they & what size are the holes? I'm hoping the outside edges of the holes are just about the right size for me to cut one large oval hole for a set of real backup lights - much brighter than the ones they offer for those holes (and at $25/each for LED?)

So - are the holes conducive to mods & other lights or ???

My rig is still in the process of being built so I can't comment on the abuse the carrier can take but I like how it looks.

Here's what the Genright guys said:

"The piece behind the light area is flat and open. From outside edge of the hole to outside edge is 4 the holes themselves are 1 diameter The rear plate at the dip is 32 long and 4 1/2 tall

Sales"

Looks like this is easily customizeable to some 'real' lights:

Looks great! What was your painting process? Did you have to do anything special to the aluminum? Powder Coat, Rattle Can?
