It clears the hatch by half a inch.

happy holidays
Nice work, I actually may have to add those if possible for a little extra support. The corners always seem to flex a bit and that may be the trick!

works well. the table kinda gets sandwiched and rests on the rubber part of the clamps, so it also acts like a shock absorber, no rattling, and it doesnt mar the powdercoat, and it doesnt move at all even at the corners.

yeah man, let me know how it works out for you.

peace out.

Went out to fly a drone I just got and decided why not bring it somewhere to take car photos too! Only got a handful of photos as I was mainly there to fly, but here are a few proper shots of the new setup!

This pin will work if you still interested in the safety pin. I just sheared mine off and had to replace mine....just fyi.

Amazon.com: EMS Offroad Tire Carrier Pin Long : Automotive

You slide pin through bottom hole on main bumper from the bottom, and into the swing arm hole, and out the top...and put knob on. You do not have to remove the swingarm like all the internet videos tell you to.

Only thing is, the top knob doesnt clear the head of the 1 inch bolt. what you have to do, is hammer the bolt out just enough for where the knob clears the head of the 1 inch bolt, and viola...done.

I actually bought another knob head (that is circular) so i dont have to "move" the 1 inch bolt to do future maintenance on the pin.


I did have to remove all the accessories off the swing arm to relieve tension on the bolt, but thats about it. It took me 30 min to install the pin.

good luck if u do decide to go this route..

cheers.

Awesome, thanks for the idea! I haven't really noticed the lack of the pin bothering me lately so I kind of just left it alone. I'll add it to the list of things to do eventually when I run out of other projects haha!

It's been slowing down as far as mods go for a while, but just got back from picking up my new RTT! I had been eyeing the Inspired Overland clamshell for a while and was close to picking up on Black Friday, but I am glad I waited as I was able to pick this up from a friend for a steal! Swapped it over in the rain which was fun, but super stoked to finally be able to camp up top and not use the sleeping platform all the time.

The other small mod was the auto light dimmer sensor swap! $10 mod, 5 minute install, and works flawlessly! Here is the link for anyone looking to also do the swap:
