So I'm late to the party with my rear swing a way carrier. Here are some pics after a day of wheeling. No complaints on the carrier at all. As any questions you want. The investment in this was minimal. I am trading some labor for the bearing/spindle. And had the 2'' laying around from the sliders.
Enjoy:













The way I open the carrier. This works awesome cause it DOES NOT rattle. I have not been impressed by any of the goof latch mechs. So I will weld a T handle to it and call it good.

That dirt all over the bumper looks like rust, but don't worry it's just the fine dust from the PNW

This is the real reason that i had the camera outside tonight.

1/4 mounting plates, using the standard 4 mounting holes.
3/16 rest of it.
Not done yet. I have about 6 more pieces to fill it all together. And add a ton of gussets.












This is a combination of alot of designs and tons of research.
As always input is welcome and wanted.
This is only Tacked together. Everything is subject to change at any time.

This is the Recon 10.5k winch. It has syn line and is pretty impressive little unit. I have yet to run it but should have it on by the end of the weekend.
You can see here how i recessed the winch 4'' into the assembly. I like this idea cause it will keep a lot of the radiator exposed. With the v8 and what not it is always a concern to keep temps down.
One thing that i am gonna change is the Sharp points towards the wheels. I just dont want to get a tire stuffed up in that so i will square them off and it should look pretty good.

Of course more pictures.
Just let me know if I'm being to much of a picture whore....







A few of the overall look and how it sits with a little weight up front:

Thanks man, It's no 5.9 but it holds its own pretty well
When the 5.2 lets go I'm sure I'll put a 5.9 in there.

awesome! i cant wait to see it when its done. You might want to try and weld a small piece of pipe or tubing over or on the edge of steel that infront of your winch, so there arent any sharp edges for the rope

There is no picturing whoring when dealing with custom fabbed stuff. The more the better

Your rear bumper/ tire carrier is pretty sweet and the front progress is nice

Thanks man, Not sure what you mean about the rope running over sharp edges. I will cut a rectangle hole in the front and mount the alum fairlead there. That way there is no sharp edges at all.

Thanks for the compliments. I have been working pretty hard on it lately. One thing after another.

Welded about half of the front bumper together tonight, it was going well 'til i exceeded my duty cycle and overheated the welder After a cool down I lost motivation. More tomorrow

So whats it like when you look in your rearview and all you see is a tire? I like the rear bumper alot though. Just wondering how come you didnt offset the tire?

Damn dude.. lookin good! I see lots of people upgrading to the synthetic line.. good to have that peace of mind on the trail that the line wont snap. If you dont mind me asking, how much was the whole winch set up?

I actually mocked together a setup of offset to one side. The vision was not improved at all. with that big of a tire it's just gonna take up room.
With it centered I do still have some vision over the top for what it's worth. Centered it looks better and gives me more versatility to mount things as they come necessary. So overall the Centered isn't to bad at all. And thanks for the compliment
