I would have to agree. I also post an another site about my 1978 Bronco and am amazed at the sweet bumpers some of those guys build. The one I will eventually try to "copy" has a swing out Jerry can holder and a separate swing out spare tire carrier "barn door style." Great for Excursions too!! The guy used an old front hub, axle, and lockout assemblies so they can be locked in any position with just the spin of a lockout hub. Figure if they will support the weight of a truck at speed they will hold a spare tire. They also have a lock to keep them closed. Just need the time and money.

I was speaking of the cross ent setup. Who makes yours? Not that I'm interested as I have a 30 ft trailer to pull, but someone reading might be.

yep I've seen the built ones using a hub for a swing and it sounds smart to me. I'd probably go with the 1500 lb trailer hubs because they are smaller and would support the weight just fine.

Do you do any front winch bumpers ?

It is on our list, but we have a few rear systems to work out first.

Roughly, what are we talking price wise?
Please do not discuss pricing for the product with crossent. Since crossent is not a supporting vendor for FTE, they cannot sell or advertise their product on the forum.

I know this is an OLD thread.....but I'm finally at the spare tire carrier upgrade on my mod list.

Any updates on the Cross enterprise or the Reunel swing spare tire carriers?
Has anyone purchased or installed one yet?

A spare carrier is on my list as well, but with how expensive the whole setup can be, has me a little hesitant.

I did find this, and it has me intrigued. I like the ability to also carry a highlift jack!

Has anyone here tried this setup? I think it looks like a great alternative to getting a whole new bumper system.

Google shows they are still in business and making rear carriers as well.

If I had the money I would have one for sure! An extra spare, or just the only one but not covered up inside would be sweet!
