Installing an ExpeditionOne Rear Bumper

After upgrading my wheels to 35", my spare didn't fit on the tailgate.  I had to upgrade to a bumper that would support a tire carrier.  I wanted a bumper that looked and functioned similar to stock, but not made out of cheap plastic ;)  I decided on the ExpeditionOne Rear Bumper with Tire Carrier.  The fit and finish of their parts is superb and they have an ingenious articulating system that moves the tire carrier when the rear door is opened/closed. 

Unfortunately my camera battery was almost dead when I installed the bumper, so I only got a few pics.

Sorry I didn't have more pics of the install; however, ExpeditionOne put together an excellent YouTube video that shows how to install the bumper.  Here's the video:

Here's the link to the Installation Instructions.
