Hanging fence post stinky slink holder under frame. Clearance issues?

I put together the fence post gutter tray mod that is discussed elsewhere in the forum. I have a 2015 23ikss. My first thought was to mount it under the rear bumper but got cold feet about clearance. I then found some convenient mounting holes in the frame just behind the front stabilizer jacks. The fence post hangs down 5 inches below the frame or 6 inches below the rear bumper (has to be a spacer to avoid the spare tire and grill mounts). Is anyone familiar with the ground clearances in these areas? I don't want to hear a crunch going out a drive sometime.

Thinking bout picking a fence post up tonight. Have to make a depot run for weekend stuff anyway. I had thought somewhere near the rear to keep it close to where it will be used. I wonder what others have done, or what caps they have used?

We closed ours up with the fence post caps and keep them closed with carriage bolts and wing nuts.


Clearance was not a issue for our bumper...

I mounted 1 side of the Post mod to the Side Plates of our steps, the other end/side is mounted to the Frame flanges by Co-Boring through the bottom of the Post in 2 places and using these holes to drill and tap fasteners into the Frame rails! NO Brackets to (Buy or Make)! The Post is STILL way above the (Steps) and we have not EVER (Hit/Bent/Drug) our Steps,so clearance should be No issue! Youroo!!

How would it have fared in this situation?

Note mine just behind the front landing gear...
