Started on my bumpers- Part II Rear done (except for tire carrier)

I took my time on this one.... lol!!!

.25" wall 3x4 tubing for the main body at 60" wide. Yeah... I know... it's wide, but I wanted a bit of extension on each corner for protection.

The 1" thick tow points drilled to 7/8" eyelets go completely through the entire bumper and welded under the pads 100%

The mounts are .25" plate material backed by 4x4x.25" pads backing the bumper.


The receiver is custom by me and clearance through the back. the recessed 7 -way RV connector was the add-on for future tows of a boat or small trailer.

and freshened up with paint and mounted for now while I go into design on the swing-away carrier.



The pivot point of my swing away is made of SS that I cut down to fit some Timken Bearings and Races for a 1.25" shaft.


End caps from mild steel stock and cut to accept shims to tighten bearings for pre-load once all is mounted on the swing-away.


WHEW!!! Whaddaya think?
