Re: bumper/tire carrier Q\'s

My hinge is the trailer axle off an old boat trailer. It cost $10 to have the drum machined off. The Hub, axle, bearings, and a bearing buddy, cost $15 from the local trailer supply shop. For the latch, I used a Latch from Northern Hydraulics, it is spring loaded, and the pin is 3/4". VERY heavy duty.
