My Swing Away Tire Pics

Well just got her done with my first real fab job, and I'm impressed how well it came out. I used a Rockstomper hinge and made everything else.

It just rained yesterday, so thats why the black paint is all speckled.

This is in conjuction with my Olympic bumper that I bought about a year ago, and it is very beefy. This is with a 33" tire, but it could easily fit a 37. Enjoy.

Mike

Thats a really nice swing away. Did you make the bumper also or did you just install the swing away on top of it?

Thanks for all of the responses, it is holding up great without any rattles. It is is fun the build your own stuff, wish I made my rocker guards instead of buying tomkens for some $. Oh well, now i think Im going to build a HD front bumper with all of the rest of the steel.

Dan240: This is on a 57" Olypic Rock crawler bumper with reciever. I like it and it worked well with the carrier.

Good job! Very professional looking. How does that Warn-style frame hold up?

So far its holding up very well. It doesn't flex much at all(maybe a .25" at the very top when I shake the crap out of it. I would recommend it to anyone. Thanks again for the compliments.
