Made some Progress on it. Got all of my parts except for my Wheel studs, they should be here saturday. The main bumper is all welded and ground smooth. The back side is welded and gusseted still need to add my d-ring mounts and the led reverse lights.
For the swing away, I have the double sheer hinge from comp4x4 mounted and welded. The receiver is just tack welded then need to make the plate that mounts to the actual tire. I should have all the big stuff done and welded this weekend, hopefully.
Also, I do my latch a little different than some bumpers but I really like how it works. I have the latch assembly permanent on the bumper instead of the swing part, and put an angle on it, so it has the full pull of the latch to keep tight, it has worked great for me on the bumpers I have built.
