Originally it was a simple bolt welded into a T handle to hold the tire carrier. I liked that idea, until today, when I was leaving camp, and the T handle was on the bumper, not in the bumper. Now it's somewhere on the trail.
I'd like to put something like this:
I don't really know where to start. I was thinking that I would have enough space to weld some sort of stay to the swing-out just above the bolt hole area.
Possibly having the latch on the top side of the bumper, under the license plate, and welding the hook side to the tire carrier tube.
