Finally got pulled over after 1.5years

Finally got pulled over last Monday for my rear plate being blocked. Ive only had this tirecarrier on since Feb 2008


Cop was nice enough to give me a warning. So I decided to get off my lazy butt and relocate the tag. Tiregate wants $80 for their mount, I did this for spare parts and $15 Led plate light.

How I ran the wiring:

I plan to someday wire a quick disconnect, encase I want to drop the carrier for certain trips.


Also, finally Mounted my shovel with quickfist that have been sitting around for a year.

Hey scott.....constructive criticism here.... I like the relocate, but i think it looks a little out of place sticking above and below the metal behind it. How about moving it to under the spare?


Looks great and I like the snorkle.
