Today I installed my bumber with a swing away tire carrier, What do you guys think?
badass man...that's way cool
Looks cool. Care to explain how you did that and what you used?
3x6 rectangular tubing, 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 square tubing and some 2 inch round tubing, a 14b sf axle end, and an old dana 44 hub assy. A cut shaft is welded to the spindle through the back, cut and grind the extra metal around the hub, the spindle is welded to the 3x6 from both sides, the assembly gets put together just like the regular front hub does.
I have seen that at trucks shows before. its a great way to build the pivot. the bearings are almost overkill for that application. the locking hub is great for holding the swingarm in the out position. Good job.
That is a great idea.
coolest new idea i have seen in a while, nice work
started the front bumper today
For your fron bumper did yu just get one long stick of 3x6 tube and cut if in the middle just 3/4 through and then bend to proper degree and weld the seam? In the other post it looks like there is a shallow "V" to the bottom side of the bumper? How did you do that?
It was a long stick of 3x6 and I did cut through 3 sides, I tried the 3/4 cut but it was too thick to bend so I cut a little at a time and eventually found out that I had to cut all the way and create a tiny "V"
Looks good, are you keeping it all gas tight to act as auxillary air tanks? I have those same gloves on the driveway.
Wow, I have been thinking of doing that for like the last year, I jsut dont have time to do it.
It took me about a month, the front was easy I started last Sunday, worked on it yesterday and finished today, not really that hard but it was a PITA to move around.
