Okay.. changed a few things on the current bumper that I'm making.. moved the De Sta Co latch (the new style with the safety lock) out to the end of the arm to pull down and forward. This locks the arm into a piece of angle iron. I also made a swingout locking pin to hold the arm open. Also, scraped the idea of a universal top mount for accessories and just added a Hi Lift Mount. It locks the jack into place with two bolts/wingnuts and captures the handle with a piece of tube cut in half.. here's a few pics..
Here's the angle iron mount that will capture the end of the swing arm.

... another shot of the mount from an angle view

Here is the De Sta Co latch on the end of the swing arm. It will pull the arm down and forward locking it into the angle iron mount.

Here's the same latch assembly from above..

Here's the swingarm stop...
The pieces I used... a piece of 3/8" rod, a small spring and a roll pin.

Here is the small "half moon" plate with the hole drilled in it for the stop pin.

Here's the swing arm pivot with the small piece of tube welded to it.

Here it is assembled... the spring pressure pops the pin down into the hole to hold the carrier open. The little roll pin is what keeps the spring in place on the pin.

Finally the Hi Lift Mount.. a couple of pieces of 3/8" plate with bolts welded thru them to act as mounting studs for the jack's "spine". A piece of tube cut in half holds the jack handle.. it can be tapped up into place after the jack is mounted to snug up the fit reducing rattles.


Simple setup..


From the backside.. important that the jack mounts from this side as the other side will have the tire on it.


With a jack snugged in place.. zero movement.


From the other side.. after the jack is bolted on, you can tap that curved piece up a little to snug the jack handle against the jack.. keep it from rattling.


My cozy work space..

Nice! That's a pretty indestructible bumper there!

I was just gonna use the single tube in the center to hold up the tire but I was afraid it might fall over so I tossed on another two to hold it up on each side. Bumper and swingarm combined weigh about 100-110 pounds. Gas mileage?.. we drive Jeeps... who cares?!

I like the way you angled the high-lift jack, looks great!


Thanks

We finished the bumper based loosely off of this project. Thanks for all of the information. I will try to post a pic later.

I like it too. Keep up the good fab work. When are you going to adapt it for gas/water cans?

I ditched the flat plate at the top of the carrier idea. Haven't really given much further thought to it. I'm making another one for a YJ right now and might toy with gas/water can mounts.. maybe one on each side?..

Just some random pics of the last bumper I made.. might help someone get the creative juices flowing....

The Pivot Gusset is one of the bumper end pieces cut to fit.



Swing Stop to hold the Tire Carrier open..




New Latch Location.. pulling forward and down to lock the Swingarm into its mount




Small 3/16" piece to catch the bolt hole in the bottom of the frame



The center post is 18" tall..



Hi Lift Mount... tap off the wingnuts and the Jack is free..
