Great Pictures!
How is your spare mounted? Is it mounted directly on the door, or is here some other support structure that is not seen? What do you have for a rear bumper?
I have the dutch door configuration, but I am looking at all options for the rear.

Thanks guys! Yeah the spare tire is mounted just using a Sparco spare tire carrier I ordered from amazon and there is actually no rear bumper. I removed the stock bumper then chopped the sides of the body about 3-4" extending to the rear wheel wells using an angle grinder. Then I prepped and sprayed Raptor Liner on the runners.

Eventually I will need to get some steel bumpers fabricated for the front and rear (any recommendations on this would be very welcome!! Preferably located near Santa Cruz CA) but for now this will do. :cheers:
