    I found a real sleek looking one that worked on the original hole position

    EXCELLENT thread everyone!! I've been looking for a rear bumper/tire carrier for my JKU and the LoD fit all my requirements and more. I've just ordered it a couple of days ago, so I've likely got a bit of a wait, but I do have a question.

    I didn't order a bezel for the rear lights. Can I install them after the bumper is installed or will the bumper have to be removed to install the lights? I would rather do it one time if you know what I mean.

    Thanks!!

    I finished (finally!) my LOD Destroyer rear w/ linked gate yesterday. Went pretty smoothly for me, thanks to reading the directions carefully and reading this thread a few times.

    My learnings:
    • pay attention to the top / bottom bearing - despite my best efforts i got turned upside down, and pressed the top in the bottom spot, put in the grease seal, and then realized my screw up. I used the 1.5" socket i bought at the autoparts store (just $10) and another socket, with a drill bit to align, to tap the pair out gently with a section of 2x4 and a small dead blow hammer. Seems fine. but don't repeat my mistake!
    • for 35" tire, used the middle height and middle fore/aft bolt holes. some metal showing on either side of the tire, but fine for now. may move later. room to go lower even but will show more of the metal rack.
    • used blue / medium locktite on all tire carrier fasteners
    • zerk fitting - i scratched the black paint, touched up, but should have been more careful
    • other than that it seems good. will drive more and continue to listen for rattles if stuff moves / adjusts
    • i might shave the quick release flange where it is next to the tail gate... SUPER close to the gate, requiring care not to scratch upon engage / disengage. will likely dremel and clear coat it. *** Have others done anything on this???
    • i do have a lot of extra fasteners...




    Happy LOD customer here, with LOD all around.

    You'll need to remove the bumper, as best as i can see. not sure how you'd get your hands in there. unless you're more creative or smaller handed than me. It came with a flat plate / no light bezel, FYI.

    Drilling the vertical holes

    Does anyone know why LoD didn't include an instructional on the drilling portion of the install? I feel like that part is the most brushed over, even in the video. I am trying to make sure I drill the vertical holes in the right spot. There are two circle indentations, but there is a curved metal just inside the indents. Is this where I am supposed to drill the vertical holes? and does drilling through those circle indents in the top automatically allign with the 2 holes on the bottom? drill points.jpg

    I would assume so... it’s been a while. I don’t remember having issues with figuring out the drilling instructions. Post some pictures and maybe I can help a little better.

    The holes are already there. You just need to drill the ones on the side.

    The first two pictures are of the top vertical holes. The third picture, I was curious if you just use the threading that is already there? It's a picture of the forward holes on the side.

    I drilled the vertical holes.

    I didn’t have the threading on my frame rails, I used all the hardware from LOD. What bumper style are you replacing?
