Has any one built their own rear bumper and swing out spare tire carrier for JK??
I would like to see pics of swivel and latch mechanisms if you have; I amjust needing some ideas.
Thanks in advance. Don

Ill get some pics today of the pivot my buddy machined for me .its pretty sweet it has timken wheel bearings in it and it cost 0 .the center pin I had got in a box at a yrd sale yrs ago ,one of those hording things left in the bottom of my tool box.finally found a use for it.
I have to collect some sq tubing for the rest of it. still need the latch myself .

Vancamp made one. He posted pics in a thread labeled my homemade bumper. I would link you but I'm on my phone. His looks incredible. See if you can't find it.

Finally got the pics of the swivel my buddy made for me .I already had the main piece on the left .those are GM wheel bearings we use in loft blocks ( stage rigging )a little overkill for a spare tire carrier,but all free the funny thing is I cant remember where I got that solid piece of steel but had it for yrs.I knew i could use it some day

If I remember right; the guys in my club here use a trailer (from Northern) axle hub as the pivot. It's a slick set up.
