Oh nice!!

The pictures on page 1 show it fitting in the tailgate gap so I think you'll be fine. I'm curious to know if it blocks access to the spare tire hole though...

When I bought mine for my old Ranger it was just some plastic that covered the hole to access the spare and you could cut/dremel that away easily to retain access to your spare.

Okay. the way the recon light bars are set up is they are double stick taped on. well the double stick tape is screwed to the light bar... Soo. if you get a flat tire, all you need to do is unscrew the light bar from the tape, and you can get in with the tape still in place and lightbar unbroken.

thank god, because if that were to ever happen, that would turn a shitty day into an even shittier day if i had to rip off my light bar to get my spare tire..
