Default Rear bumper help

Has anyone out there made there own rear bumper/tire carrier. If so what did you use for the spindle/hub? Tried a a grade 5 1" bolt, to much flex and sag.

Thanks..

if you go to a machine supply you should be able to find shaft & collars to make a pivot with, the collars have a allen screw and the bite in to the shaft so the shaft can be set to a given height. the shop I work for we use them to hold wheels on our test dollys, I have had them hold many thousands of pounds without failure. if you can,see if you can find tool steel shaft in the length you need...it won't flex.

Where would you get a hub without the lugs and extra steel, you would only want something a tube.
