I made a home made swing out for a standerd 2002 wrangler bumper... :tongue1: but the bumper is not strong enough to suport the 32" BFG. tire... what do I do.. get a better bumper. If needed I will send some of my pics.

This is the back side of the rack and where the L chan. would fit the pic. down below.

This is a s/s 2x2 tube to help support the rack from going in a outwerd way, also a lock pin to hold it into position.

There is a bolt stainless steel that acts as the swivel point and bronz upper and lower bushings that slide inside the bolt and then the s/s locking nut.

Notice the rack is heavy. Due to the weight of the tire and the weakness of the bumper!!

This is a rear brake light (LED).

If anyone has questions feel free..
