I cut the insert to 2.25" long. I drop it in, shove the lower bearing and seal in from the bottom drop the top bearing in and then set it on the spindle. Cinch down the spindle nut to hold the bearings in place. Slide the outer shell up/down until it fits where you want it and tack the inner sleeve in place. Dissassemble and weld. Let me know if you can't find an inner sleeve 2" OD.. I can send you a scrap piece cut to the right length.. just pay shipping (probably about $6-$7 from VA to AZ).. PM me if you need it..

any chance you would sell me the mounting brackets for a TJ rear bumper? I want to make my own and that would save me considerable time and money and I would just buy the plate and 2/4 for the bumper itself.

Just finished my own rocker guards with slider and got bitten with the bug

Thanks to BESRK and all who have contributed to this thread. I found this link through another jeep forum and have been licking my chops ever since to get my own bumper made. When I showed it to my father-in-law he was as impressed as me and ordered all the steel using BESRK's provided materials list. The build starts tonight, so we can't wait to close up shop and get started. Keep up the good work and post updates when possible. This thread has been a valuable resource and I look forward to making my own contribution as the project progresses. Again, thanks to all who contributed.

Woohoo! No more having to weld a piece of tube inside another to make my pivot tubes!! Got my hands on some thick wall DOM so I can turn out "machined" pivot tubes.. even made a trick aluminum cap for it. I love my lathe...

That's how I did mine but I was lucky enough to have a friend that has access to a lathe. He turned it to fit the bearing races and I used a buddy bearing greasable cap for the end. We just finished getting his milling machine running on 220vac too so we'll be able to fab even more stuff.

I retire from the Army later this year so wife said all big tools are off limits until I find a job.. Once I'm stable though.... I'm gonna get a mill and a CNC plasma cutter. I love tools.

I'd need to have the Jeep here to do it. I don't have access to an early CJ5 anymore. If he's just looking for rocker guards, why doesn't he just pickup some big 3/16" thick angle iron and cut/drill it to fit? Pretty easy.

just wanted to share a couple of pics of my bumper;










Of course this pivot broke a couple of months ago. bad planning on my part to weld directly on top of the tube. The fix was to have another spindle made that was longer to go through the tubes instead of on top. Very solid now. The bearings are sealed type from one of our machines.

Nice!! I've been toying with the idea of maybe doing some bumpers in round tube.. something different for a change.

I have round tube front and rear. A little harder to work with, but I had access to tube and a friend that had a bender and all.
