RTE rear bumper

Anybody have any pics of the RTE rear bumper for a Classic? The website only shows one with a body lift and none with the swing-away tire carrier.

Thanks!

Trevor

Just to humor you, here's the Wolf Fab RRC rear bumper and tire carrier.

Maybe a trivial observation, on those tire carrier what is the likelihood of smashing the rear tailgates if you back into a tree etc? Would you post some photos of that carrier in the open position? H9w does your design mount? Doe it rattle or vibrate? I really need to do something for my truck, it would be nice to move the tire out and protect the rear fenders. I've creased one a little already.

Mine is 1/4" plate, it's not going to bend unless you are really careless. My bumper sticks out far enough to protect the taillight lenses. The bumper mounts to the stock rear frame horns vertically and a large bolt horizontally through the hitch. I have ZERO rattles or vibes, seriously. This was a prototype, so I may change a few minor things. I'll try to post pics of the carrier open tomorrow.

Did you build it for your Classic? That's a good looking bumper, not many out there for these trucks. What changes would you make?

Yep, that's my classic. I would change the mounting points a bit and devise a better locking mechanism for the carrier.
