    Hi all.
    Curious if anyone knows of a product/recommendation that allows you to attach a rear swing arm gate (to hold a spare tire, etc) to the factory rear bumper?

    Looking for the versatility of the rear gate, but don’t really want to replace the entire rear bumper, since I have the parking/proximity/blind spot sensors etc. thanks!

    Wilco is about your only option. There’s no way to integrate a swingout into the factory bumper.

    The factory bumper is plastic. It won't support any weight

    I am aware of this, but wasn't sure if there was a product out there that might mount to something underneath/within with modifications, etc. Sounds like the Wilco system is a good bet, but in my planning is a pricey option worthy of comparison against others. Thanks!
