    I'm can't decide which one to go with. I need to find a way to carry a 35" spare. Any with experiences with the Rigd Ultra swing?

    I run the ultra swing. Really your deciding factor should be departure angle IMO. It will be better with a bumper, since the ultra swing protrudes from the hitch.

    Not yet, but it isn’t trail tested. I’m taking it out in a few weeks.

    Ultraswing make sense to me for a daily driver that can remove the weight and utilize the camera during the majority of the time

    just installed the ultraswing mega-fit today with the front runner 2.0 camping table. not trail tested yet but i went with it because i don't like any of the aftermarket bumpers for early 2nd gen and can remove it if i want. it also has the multi-plate option so i can hook up other recovery gear to it and the wobnot adapter for my bike rack, and i still have a 10k lb hitch receiver. road tested today at various speeds and it's solid. the real test will be off-road. i don't do anything crazy. just some fire roads that require high clearance vehicles and 4wd based on weather.

    to do:
    run secondary backup camera that utilizes oem harness (arrives next week)
    run the license plate lights
    remove oem spare
