What's up guys... I am shopping around for a tailgate spare tire system. I seen that C4 just made one that swings out and connects to your hitch. Also Wilco has one any suggestions or likes on specific brands? Thanks!

I have no experience with one yet but CBI, Bruteforce & SOS Offroad are other options to look into as well if you are looking to upgrade your rear bumper as well.

This is the trailer hitch swing arm I ordered. Should be shipping here at the first of April. They designed this one off of a Tacoma but will work with almost any truck. Then they have a 4Runner specific model as well. Keeps your weight low, and gives you the ability to have a nice tire carrier, and I opted for the added table.

I actually really like that, but it seems like most of these systems get in the way of the rear camera, and it's crazy how much I rely on that thing.

Haha yeah, I will probably relocate it when it becomes more of a permanent feature of the truck.

I always had my eye on the Wilco one myself when I wasn't sure what I was doing for a rear bumper. That newer RIGd one looks very solid too. I suppose it would come down to price between those two.

That doesn't look like Florida!
Oh it’s not! Bought my truck is San Diego. Currently stationed out here, but 650$ for registration is too much, so I registered it in Florida when I went home for the holidays
