Thanks. Yeah we decided to do it that way because it's plenty strong with only one side being supported, and I kinda wanted the can to be tucked in, instead of up higher like yours. I didn't make mine changeable like yours are, everything is welded on. Don't think I'll be changing it, and if I do, we built it so we can tear it apart and fix it.
wow, after seeing your work, it makes me want to take my olympic off and buy your stuff
just out of curiosity... with all the lawyers dictating what you can and can't say these days, is your bumper "safe" to tow with? I got a trailer and ATV's I like to drag around.
one last question.... The inside of my olympic hitch is so friggin tight, that I can only get ONE hitch to slide into it! Know of anyway I can loosen it up?
I used his bumper attached to my I6 CJ7 to tow a dual axle trailer with a 28 ft boat (dual 4.7 L Volvo engines). The trailer had sunk down to the frame in the mud. Put it in 4 low and pulled right out. The ford f250 couldn't do it

Adding my name to the list of BESRK fans. Eddie, I finally got the time to have the tie-in brackets welded on today, and finished installing the rear bumper and tire carrier you created. Everything everybody has already said is true, your work speaks for itself, and a picture on an internet forum does not do it justice. However, give me a chance to snap pics in daylight, and I'll post them here to add to your "collage"... as you may suspect, I'm working oh-dark thirty to late-dark thirty this time of year.
Nice to finally have a matching spare tire hanging (solidly) off the back of my heep instead the original factory spare tire. And I have to admit, knowing I have another 5 gallons of gas next to the spare will take away the fear of finding out where "Empty" REALLY is on my YJ's gas gauge.
You da man, Eddie!
