    Decided to put my a unused 1/2 ton front hub and a spindle that had gouging to good use. This also gives another spot to carry a spare locking hub. Still needs detail work /forums/images/graemlins/grind.gif and such to make it . But here a couple of pics till get the /forums/images/graemlins/grind.gif done.

    /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif if I used a 3/4 ton spindle and hub to mount the tire on the carrier and electric motor to spin the spare tire I could have a 5x5 it would help me climb hills in reverse, or just look

    Cool! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif If you waelded a piece of stub shaft inside the spindle somehow, could you use the locking hub to keep the carrier from rotating?

    Thought about doing that, might still, but for now a bungee to the fender well works.
    I made the rear bumper out of a peice of 7" wide channel then welded reinforced the edges with 2" angle.

    cool.

    one thing you can do is weld a broken stub shaft at the correct possition, unlock the hub to swing the tire out, and lock the hub to keep it in place /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Sorry, but I don't think it's worth a sh!t.... You need to upgrade to 1 ton.
