    Hey guys, I would like some pics of your rear bumpers. I need to make something for my 70 with a spare tire carrier and hi-lift jack carrier. Any pics would be appreciated. thanks

    dito that. I have a chunck of 6x2x.25 rec tubing I plan on building a rear bumper with. Taper it to 3" on the outsides from the frame out then wrap around to the wheel well maybe then a small trailer spindle for a fold out spare tire carrier. Pics of different ideas would rock!

    Here are a couple of mine. Bumper was made by Hartley Truck and Tubing (my design), Tire Carrier is DIY4X, No high lift holder yet.

    Not the best pics but you get the idea.
    I can take more 'dedicated' pics of the carrier itself if you need/want them.

    I'm thinking about removing this one and trying to fit my spare inside the cage itself. (so it may be coming up for sale)

    This one works okay but on anything other than level ground it can be a handful to deal with.
    As well as having to open it everytime you want to get some tools from the back can get old on the trail fairly quick.
