Tire swingaway parts source?

It's time to ditch my current spare swingaway and attempt to make my own.

The hinge will need to be attached to the outside vertical face of the bumper. It will also need to carry a substancial amout of weight including a 33" spare,water and fuel cannisters,hi-lift, lighting and possibly axe and shovel.

The Rockstomper hinge looks like it cant be used in my application....any suggestions on one that will?

I'll also need to pick up a latch...

I'd appreciate guidance to who markets what i'm looking for. Thanks..

Your local hummer dealership. Ask for an H2 tire carrier hinge.

I used a D44 spindle, outer shaft and hub to make mine.
