Here's the one I did a couple of years ago.
http://wrangler.rutgers.edu/gallery/...rGlide/Bumper/

The bumper is 3/16" rectangular tubing capped on the ends. The pivot point is a stub axle from a trailer hub (complete with bearings etc). The TC part is 3/16" square tubing. The rest of it can be seen in the pics.

Would I do it again? No! The material cost wasn't too bad, but I can think of much more productive ways to spend my time. Especially when you can buy a decent bumper/TC combo for about $300!

First off.....Thanks!

I don't have any dwgs. Did it mainly on the fly with alot of thought put into the spindle/pivot before I started.

Let me know what dimensions you're after, and I'll get them to you.
There were some tricky things and there are things I would do differently.
