    I would like some recommendations for a Rear Bumper that has an integrated tire carrier(33 X 12.50) & receiver built into it. I don't need a super HD unit, just want to get the tire out of the inside and have a trailer hitch...

    All advice is welcome...

    I've just ordered a multi-carrier from KMA. I should get it in about a week and a half. If you can wait I'll have pic's and a quality report.

    The '72 Blazer I', looking at (one of a few) has a swing rear spare carrier mounted on the rear qtr panel. The owner said it was a factory option,m although I haven't seen or heard of one otherwise. Also, it has a "factory" receiver, which actually uses a 2-1/4" tube. I thought I saw in a previous post that these did not exist. Any ideas?

    Bearing bushing thing? are you talking about the tire carrier hidge? if thats what your looking for go to rockstomper.com, they have stuff to help you build your own set up. i'm looking at about $150 for bumper, d-rings, and 42" tire carrier, ohh and beer for my buddy to weld it all up. Good luck
