Re: incredibly dumb question
Two things you can do Daxe, No, three...No, four!
Trim the bumpers if its only a little interferance.
Put a couple of washers on the studs the spare mounts on.
put a couple of body bolts in to plug the holes.
If you mount the spare there, I'd try to do one of the first two options. the bumpers, if they are doing their
job, keep the tire from vibrating the mount and minimize the chance of tearing it out of the door. Not
something you want to do to your nice clean new body...
In fact there should be a third bumper location. Dead center, low on the tire.
Or you can build/buy a bumper mounted gate mount.
I may have a set of bumpers, having replaced my T gate. If you go that route let me know, Ill
go look through the mess. [img]images/graemlins/chairfall.gif[/img]
