Went to get steel today and All they had in stock was a heavier duty tube than I wanted. The guy there was so cool! He ordered the rest of the stuff for tomorrow and gave me the other price on the tubing! He even said to just pay him for the tube when I pick up the rest as well. I will definitely be giving them my business from now on. All of the 3/16 flat bar plus the tube was only 68 bucks... I think that's pretty good yes? I was expecting around 150. That tube is 10 gauge instead of 1/8 too so i am totally happy. I already got the stinger cut and welded. Here it is cut and mocked up...

Interesting idea. I have a 130lb wheel/tire on a traditional home made swing out carrier and I have literally used my engine lift to install it on the carrier and just hoped I always had a buddy to help if I needed to change my spare. I made a couple failed attempts at a block and tackle pulley system. I might steal some ideas here.

Looking good. Are you re-enforcing the bumper mount that tie into the frame?

Yes I will be reinforcing it somehow... the thing is going to weigh a few pounds so it would be a good idea. I will probably make brackets to tie into the frame in the back.

I cut some scrap 5/16 into some little pieces to weld together and use to mount the tire. It looks like a weird way to do it but its what I had...

It is coming together!!! I got it all tacked together right now so I can start doing the brackets that will hold it to the frame and the swing-out. I am going wheeling this weekend so I am going to just finish the bumper part so I can have some sort of bumper.

Okay I got it presentable for the weekend at least. I mounted it and put my 33's back on. I must say it looks pretty beefy, kept my departure angles, and protects my gas tank... I like it. I will keep going after Wheeling tomorrow I will post trip pics too
