    Default Plans for bumper mounted tire carrier...

    I was wondering if anyone had any plans for a bumper mounted tire carrier for a jeep. I have an '80 model. I would like to modify a bit. I like this style bumper, but I don't want to pay out the yin yang for one. I could fab it for less than half of what they charge for one I tink. So...Any help out there? Thanks.

    Hmmm... I tink if you could fab it, then you could visualize something close enuff and it would be all yours

    Default I (think) that I can...

    I was mainly asking for help in the general area of the pivot. I'm not really sure what to use and wanted some help so I could see how others have done it. I was looking for a tight fit that would pivot easily and not be a rattling pile of steel that I would have to listen to. Thanks.

    Are you wanting to fab a bumper and a tire carrier or just a carrier for your existing bumper?

    I built a bumper and carrier, you can see it at my photobucket account along with a lot of other stuff for my '80 CJ-5. (http://s255.photobucket.com/albums/h...o4380/?start=0 ) In fact here's one pic. if you want more info, PM me.
