used 3/8" plate for mounts (put mounts on the inside of the tub also), 2X2 .120 square tubing, brass bushings for hinges, #8 bolts/nuts/washers and pins, gussets where needed. Cost under 100 bucks. The tire mount is extremely sturdy too and I can fit any tire size without any worries. I hope this helps. Good luck.
