    I am not sure if that would be legal or not. From the looks of where the tire sits, it covers the sticker showing date of registration. That means lots of pull-overs, especially for those poor guys in Texas, where it seems the cops hate lifted trucks. [​IMG] The tire in the pic is a 33", with a 35" it would cover even more of the plate. So far, I think the best idea is the J**P one, bolted to the right side of the bumper. Here is the link: http://www.4x4products.com/ol014.htm The really cool ones are have the tire, two jerry cans on each side, and a rack across the top. A lot of the J**P guys around here run them; I think they are from CJ-7s. I am trying to find out if they will fit a Jimmy. I will post what I find out. I am sure they are spendy...[​IMG] Sorry for the book.

    That's great, I can't wait to see pics! Was this project expensive? I don't know how to weld myself, nor am I lucky enough to know someone who owns a shop. So, I would have to pay retail. (sigh) The KMA ones are sweet, but $800 is way too much money for me.

    Actually it would be alright here in Texas because a few years ago they started putting the stickers on the windshield instead of the license plate
