I have about decided that this one from genright might actually be what I'm looking for. I saw it yesterday on a jk and thought it was pretty cool and let's me keep the tire tucked all the up to the tailgate and leave it low.

I run heavy 37's, but maybe someone could get away with just a tub mount using a smaller/lighter tire/wheel combo. Also, I intentionally am having the upper tubes/supports horizontal, as I've noticed not many manufactures of rear stingers do this, so I can incorporate modular mounts for stuff like fuel cans or small storage. Unpin 1 and 2: fold down Unpin 1 and 3: swings to the passenger side Unpin 2 and 4: swings to the driver side Let me know what you think.
I think that would work. Getting everything to line up might be tricky but I think it would be plenty sturdy.

I'm not so sure it would be all that hard. A level and a plumb bob would be your friends. Personally, I think it would be much easier than fabbing a 4 link from scratch.

You'd have to level the jeep 100% if you use those tools to line everything up.

True. Once on stands, that shouldn't be all that hard to do, though. I suppose you could also use multiple hard points to measure and reference from.
