Rear bumper / Spare tire carrier... Lunchbreak build!
Hey guys, I have been making a rear bumper / spare tire carrier for my TJ for a few weeks now. It has ALL been done on lunch breaks at work, when I'm not too hungry (Otherwise, I go to the deli...The bumper can wait!) Anyway, here are some pics. I TIG welded everything, other than the trailer hitch and Clevis mounts, those were MIG welded. The main bumper is 3/16" 2x4 mild steel tubing.The spare tire carrier is 1.09" x .145 DOM stainless tubing. I got the spindle for the spare tire carrier, and the clevis mounts from A to Z Fabrication. The "plate" for the spare wheel is (was a) broken chromoly axle.
