Same here could you post up how you hinged it and latched it and if anybody else got any home made tire carrier/cargo carrier pics Id love to see them.

Looks good! A buddy is building me one. The bumper is finished and on my jeep. He just has to finish the swingout tire carrier.

Looks super good! How much did everything cost you? Cause I've been looking around for a tire carrier and they are all sooo expensive.
