    Cav's rear bumper build

    Been wanting to do this build for a while now. Long story short, I am on a budget and needed a rear bumper and tire carrier. I didnt want to invest in a cheap chinese brand and didnt have the funds to go out and spend a fortune on a well built bumper and carrier also. So here is my build thus far. 1/4 plate steel, I used a hub and spindle for a light utility trailer as the pivot (Carrier to be designed and built later), and did the best I could. Right now Im coming in at about 75-80 lbs as a best guess. What I need is some opinions. My roof rack will remain because I use my rtt during camping seasons. From the pics, can anyone provide some input on what they would add or take away before I finish it. The corners were built to set on rocks and slide and the bottoms lowest point is the factory hitch. I wanted to keep the factory hitch as the lowest point for two reasons. 1) it gets damaged easy to replace 2) less material to hang up using the same height as factory crossmember.

    I need you bad ass wheelers please provide some input before I say all done.

    Later Ill do the same with the carrier. Thank you20170107_115651.jpg20170108_104424.jpeg20170109_134056.jpg20170109_134136.jpg20170109_135023.jpg20170109_111843.jpg

    Thanks everyone. I wish I could claim credit for the fabwork but that credit goes to my buddy. I just had the vision, bought the material, assisted,and was the finisher. All the welding and fab work is his. Im just going to owe him my first born and lots of beer when its all done lol. Anyone see any issues so far that may need to be addresses? Minus the shackle mounts and lights. Those are on the way. I just want to address any known (seen) hang points

    I would keep an eye on the spindle mount location, from the photo it looks really close to the tub.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
