Looks nice and jealous my RHD wasn't offered in XR for sure
Only concern from the video is that it looks like they reinforced the tailgate for the spare but kept the crappy plastic wheel mount (unless I'm not seeing that right)
On my JK that is the very piece I found with a huge crack one day with 33's. The tailgate itself was fine although 11 years later I did replace the rusty hinges and Amazon delivered a tough steel mount replacement for the actual mount years earlier
Can someone confirm this either way please as that plastic mount that actually attaches the spare is certainly a weak link if its true and stupid considering all the effort to reinforce everything up to it ?
I could be wrong, but it sure looks like it
Same old plastic. Just replaced mine with the Teraflex. Very nice replacement.

This is exactly why I was soooo bummed that the 392 I ordered could not be configured with the XR package. There are a few 2021 left on dealer lots within a few hundred miles of me so I've actually given some though about one of them. Chances are I'll trade in 2023 for the 20th anniversary edition.
