i'm highly considering going with Pelfreybilt for their High Clearance rear and front steel bumpers... they look the cleanest and the simplest. all while maintaining the aggressive look.

I went HC rear no add ons. Did this for several reasons. Wanted garage clearance and i get in and out my trucks bed for baby stroller and a tire swing would get old. If i didnt have those two things and didnt use truck bed or need to ever fold down tailgate and drive with furnature id be all for a duel swingout

So what are you thinking for a spare tire solution?

We actually just redesigned our new dual swing out rear to better match the rear of the truck than our original HC rear and standard rear! It also uses the same fail-safe system as our newly released T4R bumper. Everything (table, camera mount, hi lift mount, dual antenna mount, tire carriers) are included and other carriers can be added (max of 2 between CO2, Propane and NATO CAN).

Quite literally the gateway into the phrase "it never ends"

I’ve seen a few others post that they just needed to relocate the mounting bracket like 1/2” to fit the larger tire. I’m still stock so i haven’t had the need to get under there to find out for myself.

So at first i did nothing. The tire shop i ordered new wheel and tire through put it up under with no issues. A few days later i noticed it was about an inch from exhaust and the tread of tire pinched the two retaining claws. So i chopped muffler which is really nice not hanging it up on rocks and i took a small sledge hammer to the two claws bending them back about 2” each. I then spraypainted them where i banged on them to prevent rust. Tire pops right up and is solid. Very nice knowing i have the correct size spare. Now i dont believe a 34-35 will fit im barely clearing now.

Wow man thanks for the info. I might just run with that and save the money from a rear tire mount
