AH, this must be the bumper that SMTYBLT was telling me they did for someone down in Florida.

Could I bother you for some pictures of the bumper? How is it attached to the frame, how it addresses the tailgate hinges and rear valance, how it works around the width of the tailgate, etc.

I was looking at IPOR doing one for me.

That's what they said when I contacted them, that the only rear bumper/tire carrier combo they've ever done was for a Mike down in Florida.

They also said they didn't take any pictures before sending it out to you, when I asked how they built it to allow for the tailgate hinges, rear valance, and width of tailgate.

I sent Lance @ Ironpig pics of the rear bumper and rear swing out tire carrier. Anyone going to GSMTR this year? Go to Upstate cruisers GSMTR cabin and Check out the shirts for sale.
