I built a similar bumper for my '7 and am looking to build a spare tire carrier. Just a few questions about yours...What did you use for a pivot point? It looks likes some type of spindle, but what exactly is it? And I assume the catch is on the bumper...Is it just one of those spring loaded pivot pins like trailer tailgates have?
Sorry for all the questions, just trying to get some ideas.
