    Its a 1k trailer spindle, any local trailer shop should carry one, than you have to machine down the hub.

    ASomeone here used a locking hub as a hinge. Looked like from a d44 or 10b. Kinda neat idea you can swing the carrier out as far as you want it then lock the hub to keep it in place.

    its a cool idea to use a hub but i like the one on that website because of its small dia. I am going to reinforce my stock bumper after drilling the hole and tacking it in, then uses some 1"X1" square tube to make the swing away carrier. somone has done it here on ck5 because i have seen pics of it. dont know whos rig it is though.
