    The only way to make a Jeep do what you want is to cut that bitch.

    Thanks guys! Rear bumper/carrier is next.
    I need one that ties (wraps around the corners) into my stock fenders. Any recommendations?
    I was thinking Rugged Ridge or LOD

    I think the Rugged Ridge is one of the best bangs for the buck right now for a full bumper and tire carrier. I'm waiting/wanting them to release a stubby rear because the full wrap around style looks a bit weird with flat or cut flares. There was someone that cut off and re-welded stubby ends on and it came out pretty awesome. That may be a project for me for this Spring.
