Does anyone have an opinion about the value of a rear bumper with a spare tire swing versus using the stock spare tire carrier on the tail gate.
I have a 2006 TJ and am trying to make a decision as to whether the tire swing is worth the extra $200 cost.

My spare fits barely, 32 inch.

Does the Rugged Ridge RRC Rear Bumper with Tire Carrier hold up?
Does it rattle.

Would love to hear your opinion on this subject.

Why not just extension mounts for both the tire and the 3rd brake light?!
Seems like more moving parts for little return w/ that size tire!
Personally planning on 31x10.50 BFG A/T's on my new '06 LJ when the stock Goodyears wear out before next winter. Don't need a lift or anything to muck up the ride on this DD.

I have a 2006 TJ also. I have 12.5 x 33 on the tailgate. I had to raise the third brake light a bit, but I have no trouble with this installation.
