    I would like to know what y'all (Texan for all of ya) are using for a rear bumper for 1st Gen's. I don't do any rockcrawling, just on the beach etc., but want to be able to carry spare etc outside of truck.
    Any and all info or comments appreciated. Including anyone who may have a set of plans that I can buy as I can get it welded here.

    Thanks....

    I have no rear bumper, use the tailgate to mount the lecense plate, and have the gas cans and spare tire inside the truck...kinda sucks that way /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

    look under product reviews in col k5. Kennesaw Mountain makes a GREAT rear bumper that will carry spare and jerry cans. /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif

    I also used 4x4iron to get the pre-cut piece of 3"x8"-6' piece of square tubing. He uses a plazma cutter so it's nice and straight.
    here it is during const. I made the swing out part myself

    I use to have a Kayline brand swing out carrier with two jerry can baskets. It would only hold a bald 33" for the biggest tire. Also it was mounted to the body and bumper, not the best design. STC bought Kayline and I do not belive the carrier is being made anylonger.

    Here's a link to the bumper Im going to make next month, Im hoping it will help my departure angle as it tucks up into the body. Im not going to use the tire carrier for departure angle reasons but its a nice, simple wraparound design.... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I got one at a local 4x4 shop for like $45.00 but the other one I got at the local swap meet for like $30-35. The shackle was $10.00 each.
