I think having the swing arm overlap the face of the bumper messes up the good looking lines of your bumper. I can understand why for strength of pivot but I really like the swings that ride paralel on top of the bumper. Dont get me wrong I dig your bumpers and I only put my 2 cents in because I plan to buy a set.

Thanks for putting options like this out !

I get your point. I thought of the axle and bearing design. Strong, can be greased, sealed...but once the axle snaps, what have you got left? This is rebuildable (inexpensively) and easily put together. Function was more of a factor. Plus, it's a kit. It can be changed any way you like!!

I've been working on the swing away...not done yet, but this is the path I'm taking. All boxed for strength and totally rebuildable.

Order a single, or a set. Get up to $75 off on shipping.

Order can be paid with either a deposit or full payment to qualify. Order must be made (i.e. payment sent) on Friday, November 29th, 2013. Parts will be made and shipped as soon as possible, usually in about a week.

I don't think a YETI mount has been asked for before. I'd need some dimensions of the bottom, or ultimately the cooler itself, in order to design that option correctly.

The swing away will have the 'barn door' arms, so anything could be mounted to the other side. It would have to be designed before I could see how much it cost.

Can't wait until my front gets here. I'm very interested in the rear design.
