Fabricated Rear Bumper/Tire Carrier

Just thought I'd share a few photos of my work on my Jeep over Christmas. A friend and I worked on the bumper and tire carrier for a few days. By the time I was done I almost had enough in it to have bought one, but I still had fun with it. The finish is a bedliner spray. Let me know what you think!

Thanks for the compliments guys! Having other Jeep friends, weve talked about making a few more and trying to sell them. I know this one is much heavier duty than most aftermarket bumpers. Think theres a market for a rear bumper design like this?

It appears he drilled a hole through the swing arm and used a clevis pin and has a cotter pin holding it in place

interested in what you used for the hinge as well, i have heard of using several things but most dont last. only thing i have seen that i thought was worth it was using a hub for brakeless trailer and cutting off the stud plate.

I was thinking of the same thing. TSC carries the parts, but I don't want to spend that kind of cash, and I can't find a screwed up axle anywhere.
