how about some pics of it opened? i'm guessing it lowers down to the ground. seems like it would be a huge PITA to pull the two upper pins, then lower it to the ground, then work around it as it sticks out from the bumper and lays on the ground when putting stuff in the back. not to mention it would get all scratched to hell from laying it on concrete (if that matters).

of course, this is all assuming it opens downward, which from the orientation of the heim joints, i would assume it does.

and you still have to wire up a license plate light somehow....

I'm not super big on the tire cradle/carrier. It seems like a lot to deal with on a daily driver. OTOH I like the rear winch bumper a lot. Thats some good looking stuff. :)

OBTW - Like the corners too. ;)

This tire carrier setup is geared more toward hardcore trail riding then a daily driver even though it works for both. It is designed as a secure mount for tires 37'' to 42''. The fact that it swings down to access the tailgate does require more effort than a swing out tire gate.
However our biggest concern was to design a super strong secure rattle free way to carry a heavy 40''or 42'' tire.
Adding a tag light is no problem.:beer:

The corners look nice!
Ive been wanting to put a set of LiteDOT's on My JK for a while!!

They look cool recessed in like that. Do You have to cut the body for the lite dots to fit like that? Or do the corners just bolt right on?

Make the corners come all the way forward and I'm in. :beer:

Also, if you could design a carrier that swung out instead of down, I'm in for that too. I like the cage also, but don't want to lift it off the ground every time I access stuff in the back. Just tie into the corners in four places. It also wouldn't tie the frame to the body like it does attached to the bumper and corners.
