Cool, Thanks. So if I wanted a slightly thicker look, I could go with 2x6" and would still look good huh? I really wanted to go with a XRC style of bumper, but I think doing the angles with flat steel would be tough to do; as I don't know any other easy way to do it. Hmmmm. If I could figure a way to get the right patterns, I do have a friend with a Plasmacam but I don't know where I'd start.

Ya its hard, take a lot of planing. But if you wanted a certain bumper i would just buy it then build off of that one. But i think the 2x6 would look a little thick, if i where to go bigger i would get 2x5 if they make that. just my opinion, but anything that you build im sure it will come out good.

Your exactly right! Its just the funding for the next build and all the school work. Next will be either long arm or finish the cage.

It takes about 7-10 bumper builds to really figure things out....trust me.

Great job again!

Yep, it gets kind of tricky when you have so many good ideas on how you want to do it flying around in your head. Thanks!!

So today, i didnt have school so i finished up the gas mounts. I was going to make them removable, but since everything is so tight, since my spair tire has different back spacing then my other tires the spare will sit even closer to the carrier frame than the tire that is on their now. Anyways not a big deal, came out very sturdy!

Now to the pics!!!

This is a straight on view from the rear, with everything on (shovel, hi lift and gas can, only have one since i need to buy another.)


side shot of everything on the tire carrier.


other side, you can see the hi lift back there.


This shows you the framing of the gas can holders. Added a gusset to each to make it more stable, and less likely to flop around.


So thats it for the tire carrier build. If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask, i will do my best to answer them, or feel free to ask for more pics.
