    I don't think there's a right or wrong really. It's what works that counts. In seen and broke many tire swings and finally had to make one from an old hydraulic cylinder tube and rod so I would stop breaking them. It was a long time ago and in my land cruiser. I bounced off of them a lot while trying to go up things that someone told me I couldn't.

    What wall think is that? maybe go to a heavy wall pipe? Can you shorten that piece at all? Less Length less moment of force at that weld.

    I cant remember, was the piece already flexing / weak and thats why you added the extra reinforcement?
    I know he doesn't make the swing out that way anymore, not that helps you. sucks either way.

    Yeah, the two reinforcement plates were added because the welds that held the horizontal round tube to the top of the vertical square (rectangle) piece had broken.

    At this point I'm considering just redesigning the entire carrier solution, but I don't weld so its not going to be cheap.

    You can definitely get a new swingout with the new design. Its what @thebaker did when he bought my old swingout. Billy made him a new single swingout with the updated design (with the height adjustable bolt on tire carrier).

    If you talk to him, make sure he knows its the older design. When I dropped off the old bumper to him, he mentioned it was one of his first bumpers and the spindle used was smaller than the ones used today. Just want to make sure the new swingout is made with the same spindle size

    Cost dependant, this solution may be the way I go.
    Funds are tight right now with upcoming plans.

    Went up to Mendocino for an anniversary, with no kids.
    Played around on the side roads through Jackson Demonstration Forest. Good time overall. I'm a wildlife biologist so geeked out on some amphibians and got a northern pygmy owl.

    Thanks @tacomarin
