Trim bumper mod and the new rear tire carrier

So, here's my trimmed bumper and new tire carrier. I did nit think the bumper mod involved so much cutting despite me reading all about it before I actually went hacking away. Anyways, I will say its worth it.In my opinion i does look tons better and like it should of came out like that.However I do not care for my winshield cleaner jug and hose being more exposed so debating if i want to take it out since it doesnt work all of the time anyways. As for the tire carrier I like the look as well. It was a pretty penny but glad it cam with all of the hardware in order for me to mount it and the spare tire. It also alows me to still tow because it has its own hitch reciever. It claims to be rated for like 6500 or 7500 lbs My only complaints would be the gap between the tire and the Jeep and the limited view out of my rear window but nothing that mirrors and a rear view camera can't fix.I like how i can fill the gap with fuel cans and etc.

Thanks man..... http://www.theultimatejeep.com/showt...=6934#post6934 is the link and if you type calling all cut bumpers into the google search you can read up on it there too. Its pretty simple for the most part. I have zero experience with this kind of stuff and I did it and it doesnt look too bad.Make sure you post pics when its done.
