tire carrier hinge
Hey people, I'm working on my rear bumoer and tire carrier design. I have a CJ5 with Glass tub and no tailgate. I do have a tool box in the back that I access from the rear of the jeep. Ease of access to that tool box is the only reason I care to have a swing out carrier. question is, what have some of you done for a hinge. I'm familiar with RockStomper trailer spindle hindge and if I can't thinkup something else to do, maybe I'll go that route, but I'd rather fab it from scratch. I've come up with a post and sleeve option where the sleeve is welded to the carrier, but trying to figure some other options too. the biggest tire could see ever going with is a 35 after I do my SOA.
any picts of hinges would be appreciated too.
