    Who\'s made a custom rear bumper w/ tire carrier?

    ... and could let me know what they used. Right now I'm considering 4"x6" or 6"x6" square tubing to make the actual bumper, and 2"x2" square tube for the tire carrier, then some kind of bearings to swing it out. If anyone's made one and would care to share what they used, or paste a link or email me pictures I'd help me a lot.

    <font color=blue>Heres mine <a target="_blank" href=http://community.webshots.com/album/25499947XxjDjyPxVb>http://community.webshots.com/album/25499947XxjDjyPxVb</a>

    It's made from 2x4 1/4" wall box tube, the tire carrier is made from 2x2 1/8" wall tube. The spare carrier hinge came from Rockstomper and I used a trailer hitch pin for a latch (no pics of that yet, mabye tomorow).
