    Demello is turning this into a work of art and I'm really happy with the result. So many small refinements over my other bumper that are perfectly suited to my needs have been incorporated into this design that I literally ran out of things to add. The design will be available for others to purchase and the swingout is made for "ala carte" additions and subtractions based on what the user wants. For example, the receiver hitch on the swingout can be used to carry mountain bikes or a spare tire carrier or even a firewood/gear basket can be added there.

    Being able to configure things to the mission adds a great deal of utility to a swingout vice just being stuck with a spare and a can carrier back there.

    It's off to powdercoat monday, stay tuned!

    Here are a few pics of the completed Demello bumper installed and ready just in time for Mountain Rendezvous :cool:

    All the accesories on the swingout are lightweight - AT can carriers, AT propane bracket, Aluminess pioneer tool carrier, and the fold down table are all aluminum.

    Heavy roller bearing pivot, gate locks closed and open. Dual receiver hitches for towing and carrying mountain bikes or an optional second spare on the swingout. Built in mud flap brackets and LED back up light and LED license plate light.

    No, but a scientific wild ass guess tells me the lower portion is a a tad lighter while the swingout is about 50% lighter than the CBI. Give or take.

    lol. Thanks. I was asking because when I do, if ever, replace my factory bumper I'd want to know how much extra weight I was adding to my truck.

    Here's an early production shot, there are now two of these "stand offs" on each side of the wrap around portion of the bumper.

    Being able to carry a bike rack (and bikes) again is muy bueno, really digging the utility of the new Demello rear bumper and how it compliments the FlipPac :D
