What you need is this
Bottom tube: 42"
Left diagonal: 22.63"
Right Diagonal: 22.63"
Vertical: 16"
The pivot point is around 7" from the edge of the bumper assuming the bumper is 58"


Thanks man.....You guys are killing me with inches man!!! I don't know how you guys get anything to fit precisely when you smallest measurement is an inch....you gotta come over to millimetres!!!

Nah it's just difficult because I've never worked with inches so i have to convert everything. Thanks!

I guess it goes both ways, at least you guys get some good practice with fractions daily!!

Man I'm having trouble finding a trailer spindle and the 2inch receivers locally. It seems like nobody n South Africa builds things for themselves!!! I can only find complete, vehicle specific towbars for sale. GRRR I'll find a way!!

Unfortunately, I don't. Anything for an XJ, I'd have to have the vehicle in the shop to build it from scratch.

Unfortunately, I don't sell the pivot kits anymore. I make them on a manual lathe and it's all I can do to keep up with making them for my own bumpers at the moment. Matter of fact, I usually make them during my lunch hour.

The latch can be found at McMasterCarr.com Part #5071A62

BESRK,

Got the bumper plates in the mail today. Thanks. Those things are heavy duty. I have been reading your thread and was wondering if you are still using the same spindle that you listed on page 1 or 2? I know that you started milling your own hub but wasn't sure if you changed spindles. I am in the middle of the bumper build right now with the front bumper done and starting on the rear. They main bumper tubes are made from 3 x 6 x 1/4 so they are somewhat heavy to say the least. I will post some photos of them when I get a chance.

Never mind the question. I found the answer on page 130. Man this thread is long. Here is one photo of my front bumper after getting the Ospho painted on.

The AtoZ mega spindle is a well, mega. I used the bumper builders kit w/mega upgrade. Very happy. Solid, no squeaks, no vibration and super smooth. I basically copied (shamelessly) Eddies bumper and used the Ato Z kit for hardware. I carry a lot on the swingout too. Top rack, two cans and spare.

Thanks WSS. I looked at the Mega Spindle and it really looks solid. My bumper is 6 inches so I will have to sleeve the spindle with something so I can run it all the way through the bumper. I was thinking of using a Dana 44 spindle and building a hub on the lathe since I have some old spindles and junk around the shop. That is a nice looking Jeep you have there WSS. What size tires are those?

If you really want a "bullet proof spindle", and have access to a lathe, you might want to look into one of the giant "Type 42" spindles they use for 5000lb axles. IIRC, they are approx 2" or 2.25" diameter at the lower bearing.. huge. I actually bought one a few years ago but misplaced it somewhere at the shop.

On my own bumpers, I still use the "Type 84" spindle.. it has a 1.375" lower bearing diameter. I turn out a spacer sleeve that fits over the upper bearing diameter (originally 1.06" diameter) to make the entire length of the upper spindle 1.375" diameter. That allows me to use the same large lower bearing.. as the upper bearing too. That in turn, allows me to use 2.75"x.250" DOM tubing for the bearing races. If you don't use the larger bearing for the upper bearing, you'd have to use 2.75"x.500" DOM tubing.. which is more expensive, and requires a substantial amount of material removal for the lower bearing race to fit. All in all, it take me about 40-45 minutes to make a pivot tube, spacer sleeve, and aluminum cap on the lathe. I usually do it on my lunch break from my dayjob.
