    Hey guys, am gonna build me a new bumper in the next few weeks/months and I am looking for ideas/plans. I really need to put my spare tire on a carrier to get it outta the cab area and would like some extra room to grow as well.

    I am currently thinking. A tube or c channel BUT I want to put a Reese style Hitch on the bumper. I have seen several designs where the tube is IN the bumper instead of welded below and that is my preference.

    Then on the tube going UP on the carrier, I want the top to be a REESE sized tube so I could add a cooler rack etc later.

    So...who has pic of yours / design ideas? A rear facing lamp is planned as well as antenna mounts for CB/Ham radios.
