    Can a tire carrier bumper be used with barn doors? It seems like the doors would hit the tire carrier hinge. The only one I've ever seen is this one [​IMG], but it still looks like it would hit. Does anyone here have swing out tire carrier bumper and barn doors? If so, pics?

    no i dont have one yet... hell i dont have barn doors yet.

    but my plan was to mount it to the left so the right(primary) door could be opened with out it haveing to be swung away, and as far as the door hitting the hinge, my plan was to hav the arm wrap around the body a bit so the pin would be out of the way.

    DarkShadow, that's a great idea to wrap it around to avoid the door, never would have thought of that myself.

    Smokkey, whoa, cool pic, sweet burb, and awesome bumper. Got anymore pics of it so I can get a better look at the bumper? Who made it, or is it a homebrew?

    oh yeah that's my favorite. I'm thinkin the main bumper it's from 4x4 iron and the side armor is is home brew but it's just an guess.

    I'm thinkin of makin this rear bumper for my sub, minus the lights. and with an reciver and mounts for drings.

    This is the on I built, I can open the right door with out moving the tire. The tire on it in picture is a 35", I designed it to accept a 38" tire.

    Jay,
    When I first looked I thought that was one freakin' huge hinge, but a 1/2 ton hub for a swing out, that's awesome. Oh, and nice touch leaving the lock on the top. Nice work and creativity. Can you open the left door all the way, once you move the tire out?

    Smokkey,
    Sweet bumper on the truck, too. A little less bulky and more sleek. Say, where do you hide the pics of your burb. I checked out the links in your sig, but all I could find was your music. Nothin' wrong with that, just curious what your rig looks like, too.

    Oh, OK, I remember now, I checked out your pics before you erased the link. You changed or added your avatar, too, huh. Say, have you parked in Alhambra before? I wanna say I've seen your rig, but maybe I'm just imagining things.

    Most likely, I live on the boarder of Alhambra and L.A off of commonwealth. So, I'm in the area all the time.
