Eddie kept this fab section of the forum very active when he was around. Maybe less people are building their own stuff now too. Not sure though.
I always liked his simple and functional approach to these bumpers and other things. There's allot of work, trial and error and research into getting bolt on parts to fit right too and until you've figured it all out from scratch it's easy to take that for granted. Trust me I know!
My version. I switched to a bear claw style latch to hold the swing out in place.

|Cutlass327||Looks like Photoshop killed another good thread. Without paying the big money they're wanting, plus the hassle of updating everything, many of these great build threads are almost useless.|

WSS, you are correct he is no longer in business. I had one of Eddie's (Ground Pounder Fab) rear bumpers on my YJ named "Turd" (see avatar). They were an awesome bumper at a great price! I had the pleasure of meeting him on a few trailrides once in a while years ago. Super nice dude.

The rear seems like this would mess with the mount setup though. I guess I need to take the stock bumper off and really get an idea of how it all looks and come up with a plan.

If you can't get to shackle mount to the inner part of the bumper or frame, make the shackle mount wide, more weld surface, still not as strong but best option.

Does anyone have any of the pictures from the first page of this thread still? Looking to get going on this.
Distance between the 2 clevis mounts? Does it matter?

I was fortunate to buy both front & rear bumpers from Eddie before he retired. After several rock crawling trips through the Rubicon, these things are hard core, stout, & indestructible. Great product and as many have already stated, Eddie was great to work with ! (Eddie - if you are reading this I hope all is well and you are enjoy the heck out of retirement)
I'm looking to expand the rear swing arm by adding an above spare tire trail rack. I found a product that looks like it might just bolt on but wanted to see if anyone has tried adding this to a "non-Rock Hard" swing arm bumper. The product that looks like it might work is the Rock Hard "cargo basket" (part # RH-2004). Has anyone attached one of these to one of Eddie's bumpers ? Looks pretty straight forward.
I'm debating whether to buy this one or weld up my own. At $250, its a bit of a wash....

Looks great. That rest is key. You figure the leverage from the pivot to center of tire and hitting pot holes can really put a strain on the pivot.

Well it's finally finished.. glad its over and I can focus on other projects lol. I ended getting a different latch not the one I linked above.
Also added a failsafe screw style 1/2" bolt as well in case it gives.
