I have a Tactical 4X rear bumper on my LR3 with swing out tire carrier. Great investment. The design wizard that thought it was a good idea to put a spare under a vehicle should be shot. weight is not a huge concern on a vehicle as heavy as an LR, another few pounds won't make that much difference. Not in the way of the departure angle. Good for the Trasheroo. I incorporated two Nato cans into the space that originally held the spare, fabbed up a great skid plate that is not in any way a hinderance to off road travel. Gas down low for weight concern.
