    Has anyone built a swing out tire and high-lift carrier for a kaymar rear bumper? I know that they make a special one designed for it but $400 seems a little steep and I don't like the design very much. I noticed that there are hole on both sides of the bumper for a spindle. What would you use for a spindle and also a latch. If any one has done anything like this please post pics. Thanks.

    Yeah, I agree, I've never been a big fan of the Kaymar. Good quality, just not very good looking.

    British Racing Green would be cool, but it would be a little dark, it would burn up here in TX....

    Mine's a prototype for the 4+ stuff, from before there was even a production model available. I incorporated some features that fit my already modified Cruiser, and I've added to it. It's been on there about 6 years now, love the way it turned out. Mine's THIRD generation on there, I had a couple of pretty cheesy bumpers on there to begin with, sort of learning experiences.

    Henry, have any more pics, is it square tube?

    I built a 60 series bumper last week for a guy, looked alot like the Kaymar, but much lighter construction. Not sure it would take rock bashing as it was 3/16 wall, we recessed the hooks into the bumper, bit of work but worth it IMO.

    We also ran the reciever through the tube like the Kaymar, nothing hangin low on it at all.

    Not really a production item, but Ken Hanna, HannaQuality Motorsports, is building some very nice bumpers. Checkout his 80 Series bumpers for the latest in tire and fuel carriers. I'm sure the "attachments" can be added to his 60 Series bumpers. This is an early version with side bars (no quarter panel trimming required), the owner didn't want a tire or can carrier. Simple, great departure angle.
