    That's actually kinda scary to watch, I kept waiting for the line to break and take out the rear window. That angle it has to lift and the weight on the end. Hate to say it but that's not for me.

    It took us 6 months to get to the point where we can finally close the MasterPull contest. You could pick up pennies in the Walmart parking lot and buy one of these rear bumpers before any contest for this item would end.

    I think its cool but isnt that kind an expensive gadget just for a spare I'm sure its nifty to have a rear winch but couldnt it be better used for oh say some kind of recovery.

    you really think that winch (able to pull 8k+) is going to break lifting 100 lbs of tire?


    i wish it was made for TJs though, but looks like lots of places for noise and breakage
    Just another lifted, locked and cut up TJ, Have Cummins, will tow

    There's already the rear stinger style tire carriers that will open on the side or fold down for ease of moving larger tires.
    I'd rather have a manual one than the one he was just kicking/shaking to get it move.

    ive seen stinger ones that fold down, but not both, and that winch can be used for both recovery and the tire
