    My Tux was ordered sans (without) carrier. Factory put round head bolts in the holes and was painted with the tub. No issues with rust yet.:hurrican:

    On the outside of my Tux? No way. But if i should ever want to, the holes are still available to install the factory tire mount.:)

    If the dealer removed the carrier prior to delivery, you'd likely get bumper bolts in the holes. If the carrier had a clearance light in the center of it, that would be moved down to the hole in the fender for the original wiring, and would cover one of the holes.

    Bumper bolts: http://www.dormanproducts.com/search.aspx?SearchTerm=BUMPER+BOLTS - any parts store will have these or can get them for you.

    I saw (seen) one once from the great state of Oregon that no doubt was a logger of some sorts and had made a bracket to hold his David Bradley chainsaw...not safe but man it looked cool!
