I noticed it does stick out and change the departure angle. I've seen a few really nice Jeep set-ups with the striker mounts on top though so I'll keep that in mind.My only issue is the bracket sticks out below the bumper. I have dragged more than once down rocks and would not want that to be the lowest POC as it may jam the mechanism.
Awesome, thanks for the follow-up. Also, I saw you registered for the Rally; I just completed my registry so I hope to meet you up there or on the convoy up. On the FR swing-out, I think the boxed cut-out design is one of the best designs for strength and reduces a lot of weight. With my KM2 hanging on the back, I feel all of that extra weight back there for sure.I didn’t. Couldn’t have been more than 40 pounds.
