At the risk of catching hell from the forum, here is my two cents worth. I started out with a lot of steel add-ons including a swing out tire carrier. I got tired of the performance on and off road and got rid of all of it. I went with an aluminum rear bumper and the Teraflex heavy duty spare tire carrier. Personally I like it a lot more than a swing out. I run 35 inch tires with aluminum 17 inch wheels so the weight isn't much. I personally think the Teraflex works fine for 35 to 37 inch tires. It has been known to break and there are probably other options that might be stronger but there is a trade off between all the cool (heavy) stuff you can put on a Jeep and the reality when you are climbing a steep incline. I should say that I have a 2011 with the POS engine so weight is critical for me.

LOL!! I dunno man, before we installed an LS under the hood on Moby, he was still weighing in close to 7k and people still bitched at me for driving too fast and this was with his POS 3.8L. Likewise, I don't ever recall his weight being an issue for us on the trail grated, a lot of it was in the axles, wheels and tires instead of up on the roof. To each his own on the aluminum fad but I'd have to totally disagree with your assessment of things. But then, I'm just a mall crawler and what would I know.

The thing I really don't like about the body/tailgate mounted tire carriers is that if come off a big ledge and catch your spare, you are going to jack up your tailgate and rear glass if you have a hard top. You can still get the tailgate open in one motion with A LOT of bumper tire carriers or with something like the AEV tire carrier.

I was worried about that so I mounted a hitch upside down like shown in this thread. I wheel in relatively easy stuff at Moab but I don't have problems with obstacles like the fall on Steel bender. Again, a hinge mounts carrier is not bad if you run no more than 35-37 inch tires. The highly modified vehicles like a lot of those on this forum would not be served well but daily drivers like mine can still wheel fine with hinge mounted carriers.

No need to justify why you bought what you did with me. It's your Jeep and your money and you should do what you want with both. The hitch mounted upside down will help a lot on the trail but try something like White Knuckle without it. I've also seen plenty of jacked up tailgates and busted rear glass windows just trying to make one of the steep climbs on Metal Masher. I know I'm just a noob when it comes to Jeepin but I just try to share what I've seen in the hopes that I might be able to help someone not make the same mistakes.

BTW, ALL my Jeeps are daily drivers and I prefer to use the one running 40's the most.

LOL!! Just got the following PM from this guy and being that he's going to delete the app, list my email notifications as spam and unsubscribe from my youtube channel, I figured I would share it with all of you. Pay no attention that he hasn't posted on here in over 3 years prior to the ones above but as you can clearly see, he "actually cares" about me and my forum. :crazyeyes:


Hi Eddie, I have been on your forum for a few years and have enjoyed all your videos. I am the demographic I would assume you want for your advertisers. I'm old enough to have the money to fix my jeep so I can afford the things your advertisers pay to advertise on your site. I love the builds you have done, the videos you make and recognize the talent you display in your work.

But I have to say that on your forum, the one I assume you hope to continue to grow so that you can pay your bills and enjoy your jeep, you demean and belittle anyone who has another opinion. I've watched over the last 3 years and you've done that to one person after another. It's no skin off my nose as I can, and am going to, just delete the app, list your email notifications as spam and unsubscribe from your youtube channel but I actually care about you and your forum, I feel like you've become family. I know you'll be pissed and probably mention this on your forum, but as one marketer to another, consider being more inclusive. As an example, you were very good to tell me today that it didn't matter what I bought (I like my aluminum, thank you), to each his own, but then you say in passing (twice today), that "what do I know, I'm just a mall crawler" what a silly comment, of course you have a lot more experience that I do, that's the very reason why I look at the forum, but at the same time, the snarky comment stops a lot of us from commenting or participating. Most of us just go away over time and as a man that makes his living promoting and marketing businesses, that is the last thing you want.

If you could just recognize that there are a lot of ways to build something and let us give our opinion as well, you would probably increase your following. Again, you have a lot of talent and I wish you the best in the future, for me I will move on to other forums that fit my needs better.

JKNuts, I know you'll come by to see this cause guys like you always do, let me just say that in spite of what you've chosen to believe, this forum of mine is my home on the internet and NOT some kind of popularity contest. I am always happy to have advertisers help pay for it to exist but having them on here or having a guy like you buy from them is NOT why I do what I do. I hope your exit speech helps make your life feel more complete and I hope you won't be too offended by the fact that nobody will miss you.

Merry Christmas :D

Wait, so you very politely inform him of your opinion based off of personal experience, then proceed to tell him that if it works for him by all means keep running that setup, and he gets offended?

Personally if I were offended by something I saw online, I would simply close that website and not return. I see no need to tell somebody that you plan on leaving like it's going to change their opinion :thinking:

Well, you know, it had been over 3 years since he's last been on here. Clearly, he's exactly the kind of guy the advertisers here are hoping to reach and being that he cares so much about me and this forum, I'm sure he only had the best of intentions when he wrote his long winded social media suicide note. :crazyeyes:

I've never understood the whole aluminum fad anyway. The idea is to PROTECT your Jeep, and for that I would want the strongest steel you can get. Hell, both of my bumpers are built from chromoly tube and plate steel, and they've taken some HUGE hits and not even bent. I guess the smoke and mirror effect of Terrorflex must make the hype true :doh:

Further more, I have the I6 in my dub, and I have no issues on 35s with get up and go. I have 5:13 gears which helps, but it's not a total dog. Proper gearing will help more then a light weight bumper will.

Why does anyone that gets bent out of shape feel the need to write a f-ing goodbye post. If you don't like it just log out and leave... It the f-ing internet not your family or neighborhood. If you read a review on Walmart or Amazon that doesn't agree with what you think do you write a long assed message to them explaining what you will soon? No, you f-ing leave the site and search elsewhere or ignore it... Fucking thin skinned people can't take constructive criticism. To be honest, I'm glad there are folks who can help me make an informed decision on my jeep but, it's still my decision to make! If someone else doesn't like my shit "oh well" it's mine! Only person that's not me that needs to like it is my wife!

It's not that they're afraid to be disagreed with, they just feel like their manhood is being questioned if someone doesn't agree with what they've chosen to believe. Like I always say, your Jeep, your money and you should do what you want with both. Who gives a shit what I or anyone else thinks.

I think the only time aluminum armor really is more beneficial is when its a rear bumper or tire carrier. A big ass steel bumper and tire carrier like PS or EVO will affect the way your Jeep feels when climbing. My Jeep felt way better going up stuff after I ditched the carrier and put my spare in the back. It was like night and day feeling lol. But I still would rather have steel anyways [emoji12]

Yep, and although that carrier gets no love here, no one is going to tell you to pull it off and run something else. They may tell you to keep an eye on it, and they may advise others not to purchase one, but they aren't going to tell you that you should pull it off.

But, he's "the demographic he'd assume I'd want for my advertisers." You know, one that's "old enough to have the money to fix his jeep so he can afford the things my advertisers pay to advertise on my site", never mind that he hasn't been on years to see any of their advertisements. Surely, all the shit that he has on his Jeep is proof of how well it's worked in the past.

As a newb I have yet to really contribute much. I have been trolling around for some time but only recently signed on.

I find it sad and pathetic that so many in our society are so quick to take offense and that they thin skinned and prideful! I understand that we will not always agree on most things let alone everything. That said, if you are opposed to others opinions even I recognized before signing on that this is not the sight for you! People are entirely to soft. Grow up, but go somewhere else to do it.
