Hope to meet with a local fabricator soon to discuss bumper and carrier - I'll keep you posted once I know.

Hey Paul,

Any updates? I might be interested in a bumper/tire carrier/jerry can combo that would work with an ST.

Thanks

Follow-up Post:

Were there any extra holes that needed to be drilled to mount this bumper?

Very nice ...

I will be making my own for the 110 this spring and will be kinda similar (sorry) but with a twist from the Kaymar tire carrier.

Looks good, keep up the good work !

Here's an update for those that sent me a PM on the rear bumpers.
Ron and I meet with a Fabricator last week - we should have pricing and a design option for a tire carrier/HiLift holder.

As soon as we get some pricing together I'll post - feel free to PM to be notified as well.

Paul

Paul (and anyone fabbing a spare carrier/bumper) check this link.. the tire hinge kit is a good product/idea, and a solid way of getting a bulletproof swivel on a DIY bumper..

Eric,
Funny you should ask - Ron and I are meeting with the fabricator today to review progress.

Hopefully we'll have an example of a working bumper/tire carrier soon.
Once we do I'll post pictures and let you know.

So we had our meeting today and went over layout issues.
Hopefully next week we'll meet again and have all the parts welded together to see how it works..

Here's a picture as to where we are to date - sorry about the quality it's from my camera phone.

Paul check this out, using a trailer stub axle/bearings as the pivot. heavy duty.
http://www.complete4x4.com/catalog/p...products_id=71
also the price goes down if you order a few, it would probably end up more economical if you gave the welder one of these rather than him creating one from scratch..

Another thing I think might be workable is to use something like this (toggle clamp) to do the actual latching.
http://www.goodhandinc.com/
they come in all shapes and sizes and angles/stlyes etc... I wouldn't rely on this to hold the actual weight or stress, but use it to lock something down that takes the stress..

or maybe something like this mounted vertically on the swingaway that plunges down into the bumper..
http://www.goodhandinc.com/product_s...0250+%26+30450
who knows, there's a million ways to skin this cat. look at the jeep aftermarket, see what works the best I guess, no need to reinvent the wheel.



keep it up its looking good so far!

~Steve

Revtor,
Thanks for the inf/links - I'll pass them on.
The Fabricator we are working with already has a line of bumpers for Jeeps and has been using his own - pivot setup - but the one you posted above looks slick I think I'll buy one to see how it works.

We are planning to use a 'toggle clamp" similar to the 40840 type.

Thanks for the info and questions...

Just got off the phone with the fabricator. He is 2 days away from completion of the prototype.We aggreed that he will retain the feature in the prottype for the production model. ie the recovery points will go straight thru the bumper and will be face welded and back welded. its overkill but i like the feature. It also looks like we can offer a tire carrier with the gerry cans or not.

There will be no additional holes needed to mount the bumper . The bumper will utilize the stock cross member holes and will work on a Station Wagon or a Soft Top. It may also work on a truck with dual ladders on thier roof rack.
Once we have a firm $ we will post on the for sale section. There will probaly be 8 bumpers available for sale.
