A local guy, heh? I have never seen a swing out like that, but it sounds like a cool idea.

Yeah, It would be a cool low budget swing out carrier. Finding a donor Bronco with one in good shape may be tough.

the only thing is the wheel bolt pattern on the full size bronco is 5 on 5 so that would have to be changed

Looking at that, there may even be a way to mount it to the tub, and reinforce the back side of the sheet metal.
