I was thinking the same, but what if it had 2 Jerry cans behind it?

Ehh possibly, but for that price, I'm sure there are aftermarket bumpers that provide the same thing that look better.. I don't know, the 'one size fits all' solutions never seem to look as good as the work from the rover community.

It would be unstable and will rattle back and forth. Plus looks like cheap steel. I made something similar one for one of my Jeeps and no matter how tight it fit in the receiver hitch, it still rocked back and forth and rattled like hell when wheeling. All that weight was focused on the 2" receiver tube.

Right on. Watch the animation and how the mounting point shifts up and down as the tire swings out. Piece of crap.

Or one of those rubber nut sacks you see from time to time on pick-ups.

Just say "no" to Trucknutz, unless you are from Texas. I have only been to Texas a few times and each time I see tons of lifted trucks (that will never see the off road) with nutz below them. Not trying to bash Texans--my best friend is from there...

I would also just say no to that tire carrier, as well.

clearly of no use whatsoever to anyone that actually uses their oversize tires for their intended purpose.

I installed a ST tire carrier on my SW... It works out very well. If you are looking to carry additional gas, you could probably fab up something the ties into the spare tire or the hitch.
