Well Let me start of by saying this thing is sick and fit what I needed perfect.
The install is very simple and only requires simple hand tools. I carry my spare in the jeep so having a secure way to carry fuel and water was high on the list.
First your going to want to remove your factory tire and carrier. Mine has been gone for years so I just had to cut a few zip ties LOL
Next you need to remove the pressure vent. As you can see mine was missing alot of the flappy doohickeys. A little downward pressure on the top and it will pop right out.
Make sure since you have it off that you clean all the dust out.
Next I put the included weather striping on the carrier. (You could put it on your tailgate if youd like either way will be just fine.)
Now comes the easy part line up the holes and use the factory hardware to install the carrier.
You will also need to install your plate to the hold down bracket.
Thats it your done. Its that simple. The carrier co,es with 2 tabs if youd like to mount your cb antenna to the carrier as well.
Here is a side shot so you can see how far it hangs off the back of the jeep.
The guys at Desert Snake are awesome to work with and will listen to the end user. That is something that ios very hard to get form many companies.
