All you'd have to do is unscrew two screws to be able to get to that little hole... might as well get the 1-pc bar...

I mounted mine on the lip of the tailgate. I was still able to get to the spare tire hole. The tail gate still had enough room to clear the bumper.

I mounted mine with a screw at each end. It's flexible so I just bend it up in the middle to get to the spare tire.

get this one. I've had it for like a year and a half or so and i have no complaints. You can buy the cheap-o ones from autozone but you get what you pay for. that's all i'm saying. and when you get one, make sure you get one with reverse. it's sweet and it's only like 10 dollars more. you won't regret it.

and if you ever get a flat, you can unscrew 3 screws and the entire bar comes off. so you can still let your tire down.

if you couldn't tell, i love mine. haha. it might be my 2nd favorite mod. right behind my toolbox.

extra lights so dumb drivers can see that your braking or turning. The reverse light part of it obviously adds more light so at ngiht ur backing up u can see easier!
