    Don't suppose you could throw a pic up of that, been thinking of putting mine down there.

    Looks great, and simple. I had done a very similar thing with the plate and KC clamps but on the upper angled bars. Almost like it down there better, was kinda finicky the way I had it.

    I remember your setup and I think it worked well for anyone who wanted to keep the license plate where it is.

    Yea true, I forgot I didn’t have to move the plate. Was just a pain when I had to take it on and off not having a even level bar to line up with

    Didn't even think about that! I definitely wanted a setup where I could take off the Rotopax and things still look like they belong - like that's how the tire carrier came.

    +1 I used the plate and KC clamps on the upper angled bars as well but I don't really like the look of the clamp placement. Not sure why I did not think of the horizontal cross bar. Eddie's way looks much cleaner.

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.
