    I can't find the post but I remember seeing someone custom building one. Was looking for more info/details.

    Thanks!

    You should join the 100 series Facebook group, someone is currently building a swingout for their rear OEM bumper.

    Thanks! I think this is the one I saw unless someone was making another one with a single swingout

    In case anyone is trying to find the group on FB, it's "100/105 Series Landcruiser Owners".

    This guy in YouTube is retrofitting a Ford Bronco swing out onto his 100. Might be useful to you?

    If his "solution" requires welding to the factory hitch then any clearance gained by moving the tire is mostly lost to the hitch anyway, I don't see the point unless the sole aim is to run 35s that won't fit in the spare location.
