    Im also getting ready for a Thorparts rear bumper. The Jeep trend locally is a spare delete kit with the license plate mounted to it. Beings how they dont have them for the H3, Ive started fabbing one today. Ill post again when its done.
    Im still on the fence about how it looks without the spare but figure someone might want it if I end up going back. Thanks for posting where you got yours in your build. If I put the spare back Ill definitely go for the same setup. I like the integrated brake light.Name:  48A41CC2-3812-4607-90ED-DCDE47134E3F.jpeg

    I've never been a fan of the spare tire delete, perhaps because I've cut too many tires off road. I've probably swapped in the spare five or six times now. IIRC, a few members were using baking pans to do a simple delete and cover. However, that rear vent does serve a purpose and it would be ideal to see it still be effective even if covered up.

    If going to a swing out tire carrier I'd build a cover for the vent to keep it clean looking but still permit airflow through the vent.

    Thinking about it, I think if I can ever get around to building a new rear bumper with a swingout I'll go with a split swingout so that I can be sure to clear the tongue jack on my car hauler. My 35" tire hits it now so I can't open the rear door all the way, and I don't think a single swingout would have enough clearance for the arm either.

    More Updates:

    More updates on the built LS3 swap in my thread:

    Installed an Improved Racing billet adaptor. This allows me to run engine oil from the block directly, to a oil cooler AND has it's own thermostat of 212 degrees F in the billet adaptor. Pretty cool. Ran it to a 10-row engine oil cooler and moved my biga$$ trans cooler to the rear like a few of you guys did recently.

    New fan controller and fans on the 40k Tru-Cool in the rear. In-line thermostat turns on fans at 175 degrees. Keeps it 160-185 degrees.

    And finally, how she sits now. Was able to put 500 miles on her and break the engine in. Removed the break-in oil and changed to it's for-life synthetic blend oil. Now that everything is done, we can move on to the final tuning process. Can't wait!

    I still dont know about the looks or the idea of not carrying a spare. Need to add bolt lights for the plate and may add a switchable backup light above the plate IF I keep it. Air gaps on the sides and bottom for ventilation.

    Thanks Acer4LO. Cardano has made me a lot of money this year.
    Bracket is 1/4 wall 2 square tubing bolted to the bumper before installing the bumper and then tacked in place with 1/4 gussets, unbolted and removed bumper for full weld. Should be stronger than the passenger side.
    I love how cleanly Thorparts stuff installs. So well engineered.

    Korby7,

    For the placement, did you bolt it to the bumper first, then bolt the bumper on and then tack it into place to get the right placement?

    I did bolt it to the bumper before putting the bumper on, tacked it to the frame / hitch bracket and then unbolted and removed the bumper for a full weld.

    Ok awesome, that's more or less what I was thinking of doing!
