    I got my front bumper done, looks great just about to get the rear builtwill post some pics if possible or put in the gallery.
    My question is I need to look at some of the spare tire carrrier on some of your rigs to get a idea on how its mounted, and how it works. I have a idea but wanted to look at others.
    Didnt want to get my tailgate into it when down and didnt really want to mount to the frame, or body.
    I know its a 72 but I figured its all the same.
    Thanks

    I got pics of the front bumper up in the gallery now,
    The back will look the same except it wont have the cut out for the winch plate or the light hole and no prerunner bar.
    I will inset the tag on one side.

    Here's a shot of mine. I used two bearings inside some 1 3/4" tubing for my verticle piece. A 1/2" bolt just fits the 1/2" ID of the bearings and it's what mounts the whole assembly to the bumper.
