That's a great idea. You think you can fabricate that? I've got a rugged Ridge mounting kit so I just need the part surrounding the light.

You wouldn't want to cover the heat sink fins anyway, that would probably not work out well for the light. Good luck on the project! Make sure you post pics when you get a finished design!!

I didn't even think about the fins and keeping it cool. I like the idea of using just a lower plate to block the light.

I am going to have to play with photoshop and keep my eyes open on the trails to figure out what will work best and still look good.

I'm open to any and all thoughts.

Eddie - I didn't mean to hijack your thread.

Back to the bumper anyway. A little concrete beating on a 3 year old ground pounder fab bumper. No sweat!

Hopefully KK's are welcome here... Just about done on this one, BIG thanks to BESRK for supplying me some of the parts and sharing his techniques. Everything is solid and rattle free. That plate location is temporary, it actually goes in the center of the bumper in a recess.

Hopefully no one is using 56k bandwidth haha. (Dust cap on hinge not installed yet)

Nice! I love the wraparound. Most people will put the tire on the passenger side especially if you're a solo driver. Just a thought.

I put the wheel on the the driver side for better visibility esp during lane changes and backing into the street..

Sorry for any delays in the PMs/Emails guys.. I'm currently in Cali teaching a few classes for the Army. My internet is kind of sporadic and it's tough for me to type on my cell with my fat mitts. I'll be back home next weekend and will catch up on all messages and forum business.

Eddie: I've scoured this thread again, after several years not looking at it, and haven't run into the question or an answer yet: Why that latch? I've been looking at my handy Destaco catalog, and it seems that if one were to use the vertical-pull 344R instead, mounted on the "side" of the swing arm tube rather than the straight-pull clamp on the end of the tube. It would fold down against the swing arm, and just not have the handle sticking out in the way so much. You would have to add a small piece of angle iron or something to aim it the correct angled direction, but that's not any more work than the mounting plate that is on it as it is. It just seems to me that it would end up as a "cleaner" installation.

Edit: apparently didn't scour it hard enough: found it about four or five pages back.
