    Default Wj swing out tire carrier

    Here is a link to jeepforum to a thread that a guy made a swing out tire carrier. He did a really good job on it.

    I'm Mike, make sure you spell it right, because I do not want to get the wrong A$$hole in trouble.

    If you do not have time to do it right the first time, how do you have time do do it over?

    He did a pretty good job on the fab. I agree that with a Dremel Tool he could clean up the cuts on the bumper cover and improve the esthetics of the entire project. Simply looks like he stopped at the end somewhat.....I am not saying that to take anything from him because if that was his first time welding and he "read up some" before he started.....damn impressive.

    Austere Mobility in a '99 TJ Sport with a few bells and whistles

    The bravest of all Spartans was Dienekes. It is said that on the eve of battle, he was told by a native of Trachis that “the Persian archers were so numerous that, when they fire their volleys, the mass of arrows will block out the sun.”

    Dienekes, however, quite undaunted by this prospect, remarked with a laugh, “Good. Then we’ll fight in the shade!”

    Maybe he is going to finish the edges with some press on edging or something. Still it is a very good design while retaining the stock bumper cover.

    I sent him a PM on jeepforum inviting him to join us here.

    Good catch Joey... the finished bumper looked pretty clean and well finished to me.
