    Ok I couldn't find a bumper that would do what i wanted it to do, so i am building my own. It is a 4"x6" steel box and while i am at it i am building a tire carrier too. I am going to attach it to this so don't laugh at my bad ass sketches. All other steel other then the bumper is 2"x2" box steel. The bushings are 2" ones from offroad design. Which design do ya'll think is better for the hinge points. Bottom or top? Any other advice is appreciated too. And yes i know i made some pretty bad ass, to scale, perfect drawings of it!!!!! Thanks - Doug

    Sounds like a good idea. I tried to view the pic but all I got was jibberish. Is it my computer or the Pic?
