little bit of carving
bumper corner was already modded at Katemcy so I figured what the hell
I had already chopped the 3rd brake light down to shine thru the wheel
pics should pretty much tell the tale

Good idea! Easier to work with the plastic, too!

I also like the other mod that you did to the rear passenger corner of your bumper... :D

that was courtesy of a granite wall, also modded the tail light to match on that side :D

Innovative. Teraflex has a spacing bracket that they sell for $29.99 for those considering a less labor intensive route.

Just be very careful dropping off of ledges cause if it catches the tire, It will seriously tweak your tailgate. Good thinking though.

I was looking at the TF bracket, but most of the bracket manufacturers say not to go above a 33" because of the weak sheetmetal on the JK.
I figured not using the bracket, I wouldn't be spacing the tire out and increasing the leverage.
As far as labor, I think it took me about 5 minutes with the angle grinder to do the whole thing.
I basically did it just on a lark so I can carry my spare until I get a real bumper/carrier
