Awesome build man. One question that I don't think I saw an answer to... what's actually inside the spindle? Did you just put it over the tubing from the bottom bumper and call it a day or is it threaded on there somehow? Sorry for such a stupid question! Looks great.

Not sure exaclty what you mean but i will give it a shot! So with the tube/spindle that i took off the old tire carrier, it just goes over a rod that is welded into the bumper. It uses two bearings and a castle nut to hold it together under the cap. It looks like this un-welded to the bumper.

(by the way this is not the one i used)

If i didnt answer your question just get back to me and i will figure out a new answer. Thanks again for the complements guys!
