    I got a response from him about a 3 months ago, he's only making sliders right now. I wish he would make the bumpers

    It cost me a bit over $300.00 to make my "stinger" and then I had to do all the designing, assembly, machine shop trips and supply the flat stock and actual tire mount. I'll probably make another one fer my '73, but that's about it.

    I can get someone the measurements if they wanna get a local fab shop and machine shop make the parts fer them though!

    If you are bouncing around, is that 3rd, middle support strong enough to hold up the whole rig?

    I always thought it would be cool to make one out of a front spindle with the hub, and weld the outer shaft in there too, and use the locking hub to lock it in place, but I like the "stinger" type better.

    The stinger type is alot better especially if your running 35's or over. Witht he stinger just lay it down and roll the tire onto it. With the swingout you have to lift it up there and we all know a 35-40" tire and rim can get pretty heavy.

    Daniel does make some awesome bumpers and sliders. I had a set and beat the living sh!t out of them and held up superbly.

    I realized it when I helped change a tire on a Jeep that had the swingout tire carrier and was very thankful that, at the time, I had the stinger type. Althougth they were 38's they were still pretty heavy and took 3 of us to put it up. 2 to hold and one to secure a lug on the carrier.

    I would think you could fab the stinger accordingly....

    This sounds like a great option for Kert's UD1... Kert?

    Tho this is the one I want, minus the corner protection...
