WJ Rear Bumper Carrier.

I searched the forums but I couldn't find anything so here's my question. Does anyone know of a good write up to make a rear tire carrier for a WJ?

I have a metalshop program at my school and I'd like to try and make one for myself since my tires aren't going to fit in the trunk anymore.

Thanks

Also look the the "Grey Goose Build Thread"

I just finished welding mine. It's drying with primer right now.

Proto Fab has a real nice one.
If you can make your own thats even better/cheaper. Look at as many as you can for ideas. Some people like a tubular bumper, less weight, easy to make.
Good luck and be sure to post up some pics.

I went the tube bumper route, if you have access to a bender of any type easy enough to build. Some people like the tube some don't, It's alright for me, does the job I wanted.

No build threads from me. LOL I don't articulate well. I can take some pics of it closer if you need any, Like I said simple design and you could change anything on it and still have the same idea.
