    Within the next 1-2 months I'll be ordering a high clearance rear bumper. Wanted to see if y'all have any input on which of these two you guys prefer and why? I'm leaning towards Relentless cause it seems to have a little more rear panel protection. And are there any pros/cons to having the rear tire carrier? Im undecided on if I should get one. If I do, my truck will no longer fit in my garage. Not sure if it's worth getting it.

    I’ve been thinking about getting a rear bumper. The primary drawback IMHO of a swing out is that you cannot haul anything that requires the tailgate to be down, which is just about everything if you have a short bed.

    I definitely agree. I ordered my rear already and went without the tire carrier. I also didn't want all that weight hanging off the rear of my truck either. I wasn't looking to completely replace my springs at this point either to support all that weight.

    Relentless Fab has great customer service and they answered all my questions in a timely manner when I purchased my front bumper from them. For the bumper itself, it’s just your preference and which would suit your needs and budget the best.

    +1 on their customer service. Super friendly and very helpful. It's ine of the reasons I chose them. Plus I liked hsow their bumper lines matched up with the trucks. Cannot wait to receive it and get it on!
