Finished the die, it even fit the bender. Didn't have any floor anchors or a hammer drill, so bolted on some scrap and parked the truck on it.:hillbilly:

Made a test bend, not the best, but not bad for the first attempt. Need to test a few other setups. The radius looks good for the tire carrier?

Looks great Kevin!! What is that inside radius for the bend? I think that would be perfect for all the bends. How much material was lost in the bend so I can calculate the lengths before bend when I detail the pieces. I am working on the details today. Progress is good!! :cool:

The OD of the inner part of the die is ~2.75", would guess that is close to bend inside? It was getting late, so didn't measure anything, will have to do some more bends to get numbers.

I will bring a sceptor with me this week when my bumper arrives at your place to check out how they fit.

Somebody's gonna die. That silly little strap won't hold if you get t-boned by a semi doing 110 whilst at the edge of the Grand Canyon.

That looks awesome! This makes me rethink getting a swing out tire carrier when I order my bumper. Do you plan on selling these?

This is gonna take a lot of redesign and stress analysis to determine the best worst case scenario for the 100 mph T-bone incident. :hillbilly:

Tools, you should market those - neat idea that can be removed if necc.

Youve definetly have been bitten by the mod bug - sneaky little critters :cheers:
