    It's basically a hunk of steel. I would hope it could handle more than the shipping can do to it. Lord knows its in for a rough life.

    But yea that's how it was shipped.

    It is raw and not powder coated yet, so there would be no damage to the finish. And its a serious hunk of steel so doubt theyll be able to do any actual damage to it. Enjoy the tire carrier, cant wait to get mine!

    Yeah, but its long and heavy (that's what she said) so if they start tossing it around, it could easily deform under its own weight, even if only slightly. Which would make fitment that much harder. Once its bolted in place it tough as nails, but when its not anchored, it CAN deform. Glad it didn't though.

    And as a side note... The half assed paint job with rusty welds on the NEW LoD sliders I got could hardly be even called a powder "coating". Maybe more of a dusting. When I called them about it, they said the welds are hard to coat and they touch them up with a spray can before they ship. He said mine must have missed that step and told me to touch it up myself... Not the greatest customer service, but aside from the slight surface rust, they are beefy as hell!

    Haha, I second that! I research things heavily too. I'd rather learn from someone else's mistakes, especially when this much money and time is involved!

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
