    Understand they're busy over at Demello, I have sent an email and a PM to Jason but no response so hopefully y'all can answer my questions:

    [​IMG]

    1) Are there existing license plate mounts?
    a) If so, can you flip up the license plate to access the 2 in. towing
    receiver? Similar to a vertical door hinge.
    b) If not, (why not?) would it be fairly easy to fab mounting spots?

    2) Can you use the stock spare tire access point underneath the tailgate
    via the supplied stock 'turn style rod'?

    3) Last ?: Has anyone had any trouble mounting this bumper? I am hoping
    bolt-on truly means bolt on. Not like the rock crusher sliders needing
    cutting/drilling/welding.

    Thanks TW

    Sorry, I've gotten neither. We answer e-mails first thing every morning and try to return any VM before noon.

    1) Are there existing license plate mounts?

    Yes there is are two holes for the license plate to mount to.

    a) If so, can you flip up the license plate to access the 2 in. towing
    receiver? Similar to a vertical door hinge.
    Yes you can, it's on a hinge.



    2) Can you use the stock spare tire access point underneath the tailgate
    via the supplied stock 'turn style rod'?

    I believe you still can, meaning the last time we installed one you could still access the tire spinner.

    3) Last ?: Has anyone had any trouble mounting this bumper? I am hoping
    bolt-on truly means bolt on. Not like the rock crusher sliders needing
    cutting/drilling/welding.

    It should bolt right to your frame. We have one sitting in our show room if you want I can take pictures for you.

    E-mail me for faster response. jason@demello-offroad.com
