Stinger style swingout rear bumper

I made it from 3/16 plate steel and 1/4 brackets. It's 69 inches wide and 4" deep at the top and has a slant down to 2" deep at the bottom. I'm going to put a hitch and lights on it tomorrow, along with the spare.

The latch pin is springloaded btw and then i boxed it with 3/16. I probably could have made it a little different but it works great and doesn't rattle at all so im happy with it.

80 bucks for the plate steel and tubing. the 2" square i got free but i don't think it would be over 20 bucks. The spindle was 16 and the bearing kit was around 10. and the hub might be around 40? I got mine for free. I have a fabrication shop right down the road that i get steel from and they charge me 20 cents a pound, so its really cheap. Thanks!
