Hey all, I am at the rear bumper Fab stage of my build and I am lookin for Ideas (not to duplicate) but more swing mount and frame attachment ideas. I have a length of square tube that fits perfectly between and in my frame rails, I was gonna buzz that in to strengthen the frame back there cause my shackles are out close to the end of frame and build the rear bumper mounts off of it, but it requires the spring tailgate up and down helper mechanism to be removed which is no big deal doesnít seem the tailgate is that heavy... but thatís where I was thinking about starting. Thoughts?

You should definitely go check out the bumper that Scott Wilson is building right now. He is doing it right. really you should read through his whole build thread.
