Swing away tire carrier o factory bumper?

Is there a way i can do i was thing a basic A frame with a hinge on the out side bumper and have a pin that locks the swing away down. Any thoughts about this has any one ever tried. I just thought of it in class right now.

Might wanna reinforce that bumper some, it's not the most rigid thing in the world.

Stock bumpers are pretty weak... and you are talking about a good amount of weight location in one stop (when swung out). PLus when you are wheeling... that weight is getting thrown up, down, left and right... I think it would rip right off.

Detour sells a tailbone... which beefs up the bumper yet leaves the factory appearance.
