rear bumper tire carrier

Hey guys for those of you who made the tube style rear bumper tire carriers what size tubing did you use for the bumper and what size for the tire carrier part?

Im wondering how 2inch x 4inch will look for bumper while using 2 x 2 on the tire carrier part. Thanks


Im just making something simple like this

I would decide on what your hinge system is going to be. If you are using a post ontop of the bumper I would make it out of the same size as your hinge. Example, If you were to order a post and sleeve that is 4 inches tall I would use a 4 x 2 or 4 x 1.5 tube, and build the rest of the frame from the same material. The taller the material is the more sectional strength it will have; roughly other variables apply. So a wider stock will be better then narrower. I would go wider then 4 inche for the bumper but I don't know what design you are going for exacly, I have generaly used 6 inch.

I built mine from 3/16" steel, bumper is 2x4, my tire carrier main arm (runs same way as the bumper). Is 2x3 and the rest of the tire carrier is 2x2. It really looks good. Their is a 125 page sticky on jeep forum with great pictures and a lot of good info for building your own. I made mine from his design and it looks great and it's STRONG! I have pictures of mine on JF, I haven't tried to put pics on here yet.

Im coming up with ideas using a 2 x 5 main tube , 2 x 3 main support and 2 x 2 for the rest.

I like the look of it off center and as another jeeper recently did he used the space on the left for jerry cans
Im planning on using the a to z fab mega spindle
