    Has anyone here made a rear bumper with a swing out tire carrier? I really want to build one but I am unsure on what design to go with. I know a few here have done this. Anyone have any insight or ideas?

    I built my own swingout for my truck after I bobbed the bed.

    I believe it’s called trim lock. It was given to me from a friends work.

    Working on one now, what a journey so far but if you're still stuck on ideas I have about 80 photos or rear swingouts that will give you ideas
