    Actually my jeep sits level in the rear. It's hard to notice in the picture but my gravel driveway has a low spot on the driver side where a lot of the gravel has been washed out. But on the passenger side there's a lot of gravel piled up so it makes it apear that the jeep sits low on the driver side. In all reality when my jeep sits on level ground the jeep does sit level. Also I do like how detours designed how his tire carrier holds the tire off to the driver side so you can still see out the back glass. Makes backing up much easier. Lol

    Well your definitely right about the backing! I don't have a rear view mirror so I always do the turn around and look out the back apologies for accusing your jeep of being lop sided!! Any plans for a back bone install??? I'd like both of these but the shipping and import fees to canada are way way to costly

    Did they stop production on this carrier or are they just updating the site ? I tried to check them out and get a price point for one and it said it was unavailable...
