I decided to go with Slee's hinge and boy is it beefy!!! Hoping to work on it this weekend...preferrably after the broncos play

I liked the idea of the hubs, but didn't have any, and wasn't 100% sure on how to create that setup.

Got it mounted yesterday. That is not the final latch, my latch is in the mail. But it's super solid, no rattles. We welded the spindle right to the bumper as minde isn't removable. He thinks it should be fine for strength, plenty of weldable area...he's been to school for welding and has been welding for longer than I have been alive so I'll trust his opinion on that. The other side also supports some of the weight.

I'll need to add the latch and the hi-lift and put the license plate down, but it should be good to go by then.

FJBen-

How are you planning on reattaching the licence plate? Looking for ideas for my own build carrier.

Well, looks like I may just pop some holes to the right of the tire, on the crossbar and stick it there temporarily...then for later...add some lights for legality...
