    Thanks!

    there will be a 5 gallon can for water and a 5 lb propane tank beside the tire, and a fold down table on the other side.

    I did! Don’t have great pic of just the finished product, but here is what I have. Had to reinforce the bumper so it would t flex with the weight of the swingout, but it’s a tank now.

    ignore Matt’s stove....

    Thanks! I redesigned the table 3 times while I was building it. I was supper happy with how it sits inside of the main frame of the swingout and adds no width when it’s closed.

    you will be able to! Just play around with it until you figure it out. I have only been welding for just under a year and still have a lot to figure out. Being able to make accurate cuts makes the world of difference, and was the biggest game changer for me.

    Apparently my swingout didn’t move at all while bouncing around choccolocco. I’ll take that as a win for my welding abilities.

    Thanks for watching my rear all day Scotty....

    Yes. That seemed to be the standard for building a bumper. Makes it very easy to line up.

    you and me both!

    I am meeting someone to sell my current bumper on Saturday, so I have to get something part way finished before then. My nights after work are pretty much 100% focused on this build.

    I wanted something a little different than others have built, so the design work takes a little longer

    Didn't you say you were going to sell your first fabbed bumper?

    lol. That is what I said.

    Depending on how long this actually takes and I may or may not do that. I saved the templates for everything I have designed for this, so the second one shouldn’t take quite as long.

    Have you thought about getting one and just building your 2nd gen on your own? Would be a fun project.

    I've thought about it, but I really don't have the space for a shop, or the space to do anything for that matter. I can get some good deals on some industrial grade welders, but then I'd have to set up my house for that much voltage/amps coming in. Yes, it would be a fun project, but I have a small house and there's so much junk in the garage!

    I hear ya. I work out of a small 2 car garage, but the space surrounding the cars is about 75% dedicated to my tools. A detached shop will hopefully happen at my next house.

    I'm hoping to have a detached shop on our next home as well.
