ah i see haha, im going to have to measure one to see if i can put one on without my spare and it not interfering with my exhaust. if not im just going to have to get the one in the 1st pic, bolt it and maybe weld as well.

EDIT: i went with a brand called insynerator, it was going to cost 300 with the flowmaster, but i heard it and i figured **** it ill see how it comes out on mine. IMO it came out sweet. i still need to record a video of it

thats what i wanted to go with but i still think id have problems. right now my tire is close to my exhaust as it is. but i was thinking of removing it anyways because i dont think it would be good to use it anyways if i ever do get a flat since its so small compared to my 31s

be better than running on the rim, or your brake drum... that is designed to go around the spare, and tucks up behind the bumper asap, so you only see a little bit of it... i'll see if i can find pics

can't find one, but you could always put a receiver behind your license plate and have it on a hinge... it will be hella high, so you would need one hell of a drop hitch on it...

i think a custom rear bumper with built in hitch would be your best bet and server 2 functions

I remember when I had duals out the back, and wanted a hitch. I bought one used for 50 bucks, and then jammed it in between the pipes. It looked sloppy, so I had the exhaust re-routed out the sides. I like the exhaust better out the sides anyway

on the topic of bumper strength with a body lift... how much weight can the bumper hold? if i stand on it, it's not going to fall off, is it? or how about riding my bike up a 2x8 into the bed of my truck

Other option I guess is to get a custom shop to modify the hitch...
