I'm not sure I see the point.

It looks like you did nice work, but now you have completely destroyed any rearward view. What advantage does this provide over a bumper mounted carrier? Even laying it flat and building a shelf to store things above it would be another option.

I'm not trying to bash you. Just trying to figure out why you went this route.

Point is....
A 37 will not lay flat in the cargo area. Side mirrors work, rearview mirror mount will become GPS mount. I do not like rear bumpers that have tire carriers that get in the way, so I cut my rear frame rails to tuck the bumper closer to the body.
