Re: Urgent Question about mounting a rear tire carrier

[img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] Dear Kat guy: When we faced this very same dilema with our CJ, we had a rust problem in addition to the shackle considerations. What we did was make new spring hangars out of heavy square tube with a bushing inside so THAT was then our new spring perch and we welded those tubes and some side plates to the frame to restore the strength, and then our actual bumper bolted to THOSE pieces as well as the cross member.[img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
