Another Harties Patroller! :woo:

Welcome, and very nice looking truck.

That bracket looks ok, looks like it could rattle a bit though?

These big tyres are a bit of a mission, I recently put 35s on my diesel, and now have to have the spare strapped inside the vehicle as its too big (and heavy) for the rear door.
The ideal will always be a proper steel rear bumper and integrated wheel carrier though.

Yes have had one on my Disco for years, works like a bomb and no does not rattle at all and I have driven some badly rutted roads with it. Only problem is that you need an extension for the tow bar if you want to tow with it on. I am taking mine off so will be for sale if you are intersted
