    Does the stock spare fit with the 4xInnovations bumper? I REALLY like it.

    thanks for the feedback.

    i really like the looks of the trail gear bumper the most. i don't need a hitch for any towing purposes but it does worry me how its inter-graded with the bumper. id only need the hitch for recovery points. ALSO the price for the TG bumper is very attractive. 199 is a great deal.

    i like the 4xinnovations bumper in terms of structure and design for strength. it looks very solid. but also more expensive.

    i just dont want to order the TG bumper and have it get bent or have the hitch break off out on the trails. that would royally piss me off

    I think you'll be fine with the trail gear bumper. if you're worried about it tweaking during a hard recovery, it would be easy to to reinforce the hitch area on the back side.

    If you look at post 9 in his thread, you'll see the wrap around. You can also check out his website.
