Bumper/tire carrier

Thinking about getting the LoD rear bumper and tire carrier. Anyone have any thoughts or bad experiences with it? Mainly worried about the latch and/or rattle

I love beer and beer loves me! so back off with your judgement!

I loved mine. No rattles, no latch issues. Very heavy duty, I think 8 extra mounting bolts over stock. Looks great. I only had issues with the powder coat flaking from rust underneath it. Being here in the southwest though, that shouldn't be an issue. I lived in NY at the time and the winters were not good to it.

Iam looking to get something like this custom made when i get the coin....as i can have it done with a harbor freight winch. I can't get my spare tire back up if i get a flat and would probably hurt myself trying to take it down....anyone have any thoughts on this one?

Wow! That's pretty cool. Wonder how bad the rattles would be.
