I gotta say thanks to Besrk. I got some D-ring mounts from him to finish my bumper and they are great ! I also asked him if he could make me the plate that the spare bolts to and of course he did. Everything arrived fast and fit perfectly.

I have a friend that lives up there that is getting ready to head this way. What could you do for me on 4 dring mounts and the hinge tube for that swing away? He might also want the same when he picks mine up.

It a pretty tough paint. That rear bumper still looks like new. Checkout their website at www.por15.com

I got the spindle and bearings HERE . I picked up a length of 2 1/2" x 1/4" wall DOM tube with an inside diameter of 2" (just about the same size as the outside diameter of those spindle bearing races). Picked up the tubing HERE . I used a sleeve of some 2" outside diameter tube to act as the bearing spacer inside the bigger tube. I drilled four 1/2" holes around the outer tube so I could plug weld the inner tube in place. The job of the inner tube is to keep the bearing races set apart so you can tighten the spindle nut and compress the bearings.. taking out the slop. Otherwise, the bearings will just slide around inside the bigger tube. I believe, there are a couple places out there selling spindle/hinge setups complete for about $50 or so but I made mine for about 1/2 that.

Hmmmm I just got rid of my last spindle.. I believe it was right at 4" though. I beveled the bottom. When I welded it in, the weld just ground smooth with the bottom of the bumper...

Honestly, I don't have the time right now. I just bit off a mouthful with a project Jeep for a buddy. I'm starting a coilover 4 link front and rear on his Jeep. I'm gonna have every spare moment tied up for the next couple of months to get this done before the cold weather. After that, I'm building a new frame/cage for Big Lime and doing a front 4 link coilover before next Spring. What started as a tinkering hobby has almost turned into a full-time job.. next to my full-time job.

Both bumpers are awesome! I did a bumper for an XJ last Summer and man was that thing labor intensive! I used alot of scrap pieces and pie-cut everything to fit together like that. Took forever to grind all the seams down smooth. How do you like your latch system? Does it rattle at all? Does that just slam shut and latch? Looks good!
