    Wish i had a pic of it. all i remember its they looked really well made and spare tire was on this thing that folds down. Looked like a real good idea, beats lifting a 38" tire off. Anyone have any idea what i am talking about?? any help would be great. thx

    The bumper it's self was a kit from 4X4Iron, that I welded together.
    The tire carrier portion, was a borrowed idea from DPI I believe, that I modified to use the clevis brackets as hinges as well as their original purpose. I had a "local" fabricator bend the tubing for me, a machine shop fab the ends that slide inside the tubing and act as hinges. The hardware came from Tractor Supply, the tire mount is the end of an 1/2 ton axle. :D
    I would imagine that I have near $750.00 in it. :p:


    I'm working on a fabrication How-To article, but it ain't ready yet. :wink1:

    You could also contact Kert at DIY4X (cybrfire), I think he's looking for an excuse to make one of his rear's with a flip down carrier like that.

    That one is mine and it was designed to hold a 42" Swamper. I made it for nvrenuf a few years back.

    Here's the first one I built to hold a 38" Swamper. 79Stomper ran it for a while, until he sold his rig...

    I got your email, sorry for the late response. Unfortunately, we are not currently building bumpers.

    Thats because the spare was mine, James carried it so I would have more room in the truck for my kids stuff. He did later keep that spare tire and buy four new ones the same size.
