Are there any good plans (or examples with pics) out there for a rear bumper with spare tire carrier for a 74 FJ40 that will handle 35's? I just can't afford to spend $1300 for a rear bumper and tire carrier. But I'm willing to fab something up if it's not too complex and can be made with a chop saw and stick welder.

Here (http://forum.ih8mud.com/40-55-series-tech/75040-home-made-tire-carrier-build-up-thread.html) is a link to my build up over on Mud.

Just remember to overbuild the carrier, you don't want your tire to fall off on the freeway with the average tire/35" tire coming in around 75-100lbs! :eek:

If you have any questions feel free to ask.

Hawkdriver, built one over on Mud too here (http://forum.ih8mud.com/40-55-series-tech/89493-40-tire-carrier-build.html)
