I have to fish bowl problem too but I felt it was more of a hella issue than fabfours. I was going to drill a small drain hole on the bottom of the hella (in the rear) to let the water out. Never have had a problem with the bumper moving but I like the weld idea..

edit: okay so whats the issue with swing out.. I need one cause of my tire size and was thinking of saving up for this bumper. (hint: uphill) :D

the swing out sags when you open it and I'm pretty sure it's like that with heavier spare or not

Thanks for sharing this info. I was considering a FF Rear, but no longer. I am actually more concerned by the lack of response from FF than I am the actual problem. Design flaws happen. Disregard for one's customers should never happen.
please don't let this thread make your final decision. They may have redesigned it by now. I haven't taken the time to look into it.

I'll sell you mine for 50% of purchase price plus shipping. Mine is like new - do dents or scratches.

What about at the price above?

The heavier spare is just more weight back there.

No, buy mine. 50% off and I've only had it three months. What a bargain! :cheers:

Yes. It would be much easier to sell it to someone local for the sake of shipping. I intended to keep it on through the Summit simply as a matter of convenience and sell it after that, but yes, it's going to be sold.

Well I definitely got a nice snug fit now when I hit the grown comin down a fin on fins and things...

Toledo I'm glad you haven't had any problems with yours, I wish I could say the same.
