I’m installing mine over the next week. I’ll let you know how it goes. Looking at instruction I wouldn’t pay anyone to do it. Could stock your garage with a bunch of tools rather than pay someone for 3-4 hours of labor.I am planning some overlanding this year, and my requirements are
The LoD Destroyer checks all the boxes. When I compare with other available tire carrier options, the price is fair, and the functionality/design appears superior.
- Space for dual jerry cans and jack
- But I still want to be able to open the soft top, so a roof rack is not an option
- Single action tail gate is important, too
- Open towards 37" tire upgrade
That said, the installation appears to be pretty involved (bumper must be level, back camera wiring, tow receiver takeoff).
Hence, @lodoffroad , would appreciate your expert advice
Your input is much appreciated
- How long does the installation take?
- Would you recommend having it done by an expert? If yes, can you recommend a shop in Northern Colorado?
Took about an hour just to get everything out of box and laid out so take that into consideration on top of install. LOD packages it up great
