Good choice on the MaXTerra bumper. I've had two of them (the first moved to my brother's XTerra) and I tow a couple of motorcycles on a 3-rail semi-regularly. The tire swing isn't usually a problem, with the shorter swing arm it opens just fine if things are squared up, but if I'm articulated to the right it does bump part of the trailer. With the longer swing (for fuel can carriers), I have to articulate slightly left to get it to clear.

The main problem is that my trailer has a mount for a ramp and some track stands on the front that was welded on by the previous owner. If I cut that off I will have plenty of room to open the tire swing. I may do that at some point since I don't really need to carry track stands with me; I would just have to find a new way to mount the ramp.

Nulla tenaci invia est via.

Only one question -- I need to get a new hitch for the receiver (the factory Nissan ball mount, aside from being too high now, doesn't go deep enough into the bumper for the pin holes to line up). Any idea how much drop I should get?

Email him, [email protected] he will reply with a PDF of bumpers, options, prices. Pick what you want and he will give a quote with shipping etc. Pay and wait. He is faster than shrockworks, even when sick and down with the flu that actually disabled some of his other workforce. My bumper should be ready very soon. Cant wait, its the last big thing for my rig. After I get it, my shrockworks will be for sale. I have had a few locals ask about it. So I'm sure it will disappear within a few weeks.

But drop Dave a line and inquire, being I live just a few miles from him and have seen many locals sporting his bumpers, and the jerry can option..... forgetaboutit. I had to get one. With the RTT and losing a bit of my Gobi rack space I needed the Jerry can mounts.

But I know you will be happy that is for sure. Just check the threads here.

Zball94- Plastic dip. It sucks how little rocks on the road rip it right off, but it clings like a butt nugget when you try to remove it purposely.
