Rear bumper/Tire carrier!--- Finally!!
 
Edit: Here it is!

http://i864.photobucket.com/albums/a...r/_DSC2209.jpg

I am so excited. The design of my rear bumper and tire carrier is done! With help from a friend that does amazing work at his shop.

The design has been sent out to the laser cutter, and the hoop for the tire carrier is being bent as I type this. Should be about 2-3 weeks for it all to be cut, welded, powdercoated, and the fine tuning all done.

The final design will be based off the perkins performance one (Since that's who is helping me.) There are quite a bit of changes and additions to it also. It will not be a swing out carrier; rather a "Flip Down" carrier with support for weight and will turn into a work table when on trails. There will also be some reverse lights, Shackle mounts, High lift mount, jerry can mount(s), and if all goes correct will be able to move my OBA inside it.

After this I will get rid of the rack, install the clayton LA's, and finish my D60 rear end. I did decide not to go with the Iceland fender flares due to changing design, higher lift, and build quality.

I will update as it goes.

Is there not a spare tire in the cargo area? Why do you need a tire rack on the back? Just curious

Tires are too big to put a spare in the cargo area. Three now a compressor, air tank, and all kinds of toys in there.
