update for the day

after work today I got a little jeep time so I decided to get the back bumper mounted. here it is

just he bumper as you can see I have to relocate the lights, the PO put them down there to accommodate the old swing out

with the swing out and tools

p2090011.jpg

and with everything except the sheet metal

p2090014.jpg

everything worked out fine but there are a few more little adjustments that I'll have to make, as well as building better frame supports the ones that are there are only 5 inch's long

I just noticed how low the stop lights are , is that from the PO ? BTW nice work on the bumper ends, it looks very time consuming. But worth it....

Wow! Nice! You'll be able to spend days wheeling in the desert and not have to worry about supplies.

Fixed it for you...

Looks good, just curious how difficult it is to put that spare up there by yourself?

Also, are you worried about the weight sitting up there that high, or the fact that it looks like the spare sits higher than your roof line?

Yes the PO put them down there to get the clearance for the old swing out that was mounted on the body

The tire isn't bad, I'm 6'3" so It's not to high for me it sits about head hight at the center of the rim. It does sit higher than the roof, but so will the roof rack I have planned.

I got a quick shot for you, it looks like the air shocks are not holding air any more, guess I'll have to put that on my list

I was going to suggest building a trailer instead, but now I see a camper in the background. So you must be planning on towing it. It's not going to fit in the garage is it ?

You've outdone yourself on this one! You'll sure get allot of use out of that carrier. Fine job.

That tire carrier is definitely unique and cool looking. I really like the extra storage space. Keep it up.

I already have a trailer for it. The RV in the background belongs to the neighbor and I don't know if it could handle towing the jeep. As for fitting in the garage, right now all I have to do is pull the pin and slide the tire out of the receiver, I don't think it will be in the garage after the roof rack gets made anyway so what the heck.
