On our Rams do we have to cut the frame where the stock bumper was in order to mount the roll pan. Reason why im asking is when i got fiberglass roll pan installed on my Tahoe...they had to cut the frame where the stock bumper was...making it were you could not have a bumper ever again unless you welded the pieces of the fame back on some how? It cost me around 500 bucks to have it all done and installed....so just wondering if im going to have to do the same thing on my Ram.

I dont have the factory hitch...but i do have the factory round bar. Can you see the spare tire sitting under there? On my tahoe i could see part of it so i removed the spare....i dont like the look of a tire hangin down then the roll pan.

I have the Street Scene rollpan and cannot see the spare. On a stock height truck I am not for sure if you can see it or not though. I think that the Street Scene rollpan come down a little bit in the middle, I don't know if you can see the spare with other brands or not. The bar has to come out by lifting the bed unless you want to use a sawsall like my friend did since he couldn't figure out how to get it off and didn't ask.:D

I have the APC ABS plastic rollpan. I also have the factory receiver removed, and the stock spare tire in place.

If it were up to me, I would get a steal rollpan if I was planning to mold it in because you can weld it to the bedsides. However, my plastic pan was a simple scuff, prime, and shoot; I painted the rollpan from start-to-finish, in my garage, in about 2 hours. Steal is stronger, and would provide more protection, in the event of a rear collision, than either plastic or fiberglass. The major advantage for plastic and fiberglass is weight savings, but unless you are obsessive about weight, steal would probably work well for your application.

Thats what I did with mine. That way you dont ever have to worry about it getting stolen bc mine hung down too. I have mine tied down in the bed with rope.

I have the S1S rollpan, steel style and at stock height i am unable to see the 17" spare. Not to sure on the brand that S1S supplied, but the price was very reasonable and came with a plate light set already.
Went with steel just in case i want to get it molded someday.

That is a nice set up, i am going that way right now, just ordered the bedrug @ 283 shipped and a tail gate relocator, just wandering if you had choice on the bedrug logo, i see that one you have, with the logo being on the upper right, then others that has the bedrug logo centered which the lettering seems bigger. Or is it based on color choice or maybe it is just random.
