Aside from the bumper part that looks very similar to the carrier I picked up a few months back. I always assumed it was a home made jobber.

Looks a lot like a Rockware Bumper/Carrier to me, but it's been awhile since I have seen one..

The fact that is not a common piece cuts against chances of sourcing parts from the orig mfg. Dose it with penetrant lube, grease all the zerks, then take it apart. Take the bearings to your local bearing house and match them up. Powder coat. Clean up the bearing surfaces and any threads. A machinist can make any pieces that are bent or rotten, based on the old pieces. Reassemble. You shouldn't need a mechanic. I'd guess even I could pull it off.

Ok, so I’m giving up on this after 3 years.
After swapping out all the bearing in the pivot, and repainting and welding a few thing and finally getting it ready to put on the truck, turns our all the bolt holes are wrong for my TD5 frame and I don’t want to drill. It came off a NAS ST 90, judging from the pics on the original ad.
I tried to look up the person who sold it to me as a rockware, which it is not, to ask about about the previous install, but no luck.

Looking for anyone interested in giving it a try at a huge discount over what I payed

If anyone is interested

This would be great for someone who welds.
It’s 90+% done

Someone dug this up for me. So you can see it’s origins.

I think I’ve got someone willing to take a chance on it for half off.
