1988 Toyota 4runner - Rear Bumper

I stole the idea from a bunch of other folks

I used 1 1/4" SCH40 I picked up from HD

I will also add a swing out tire carrier, 2" hitch receiver and D-Ring mouts

 

Main pieces all bent up

 

Main pieces welded up

 

Here you can see the tab I will use to mount the swing out tire carrier from

I will use the RockLogic hinge kit for the swing out

 

 

I had to figure out a way to mount it so I came up with this.

The brackets are 1/2" thick steel and are mounted to a piece of 3" square tube 1/4" wall, cut to 41" and welded into the frame ends.

The big hunk of square bar will be used in the trailer hitch as an other recovery point.

 

And finally the bumper is on the truck

 

Started on the tire swing out
