Thanks

I have built one...and it's on my truck at the moment. Since building that prototype, I've updated the design a lot and went from just supplying the steel parts, to including all the hardware. Those two changes added quite a bit of cost to the carrier.

I'm building the new design now and I'm waiting for a few more parts to come in so I can finish the assembly. Once that's done, I'll post some pictures.

Alternatively, I'm working on a swing-away design now. It's not done yet, but it's coming.

Here are the pictures of the drop down spare tire carrier. The price for these includes the modified and extra parts for the bumper, all hardware (including lug nuts) and a carrier for a high-lift jack. (lock not included)

Adjustable Early Bronco Bumpers!! WIY Kit!

Hello Steve...

You still looking at a swing away tire carrier design? Love the look of your bumpers, but would need swing away for how my Bronco gets used and access tailgate.

Edit: just saw your post on the 22nd... My bad. Looks like your working on it and will be interested to see it.

Yes, I'm working on it...Slow but sure. This isn't my full-time gig, so I get to it when I can...

While I'm working on the swing away tire carrier, I'm also toying with a Street Series bumper set...ultra light weight, no pull points, no winch, no receivers...super-easy assembly and a substantial weight savings.

Stay Tuned!!

I'd like to introduce the "Street Series" bumpers. Smooth, clean lines, lightweight but very strong. No receivers, no pull points and like the rest of the fleet, fully adjustable in height and minor body twist.
Pricing is on the first post.

Thanks for the compliment. There are 4 front and 3 rear choices. Which ones did you want me to quote? All the weights vary so it'll change the shipping quote.

Some of the best ideas are customer driven...

Progress on the Swing Away...

Thinking on mirroring the design to the drivers side and leaving just the tube to mount whatever. Jerry Can, Cooler, Toilet Seat...whatever blows your hair back.

Opinions?
