    Well I put some pictures in my gallery of the newly built rear bumper setup. Tell me what you all think. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    I would like to thank Tim at 4x4 Iron for the help with the parts. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    i like it... nice and simple. Some peeps seem to think a bumper is some kind of expensive replacement for a junglejim... i dig simple bumpers. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    The carrier is super simple dude, I bought it like 8 years ago but you could build it /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    Its just square tubing and a reciver at the top for the tire mounting surface. The pivot is from 4x4 Iron. If I have time I'll snap some more shots of it for ya. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I was going for out of the way and easy. I think it turned out OK. For now I'm happy, and the response has been good so far /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    I still have to mount my recovery point(s) also /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif......

    God I hate it when the lettering on the tire runs and leaves those streaks! /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif
