*Note, this item is for use with a 2" wide bumper at minimum.
To fabricate up a quality rear swing away tire carrier, this hinge kit is a must. There are many options out there, but none compare to our kits. This bolt style hinge kit uses our unique sleeve design to add more surface area for the bolt to rest against.
The sleeves are machined from DOM tubing and offer a radius to center the seating of the bushings.
The bushings are an oil impregnated bronze that release oil when heat or friction is placed on them.
The bolt is a massive 1" diameter grade 8 bolt with a minimum tensile strength of 150,000 PSI! The bolt is offered in a variety of lengths to fit your bumper application.
The sleeves are welded into the bumper and tire carrier arm, and the bushings are pressed into the sleeve. The sleeves come standard at 1/2" longer than your specified bumper/tire carrier arm to allow for weldable surface area. If you like, you can request them at exact length to get a flush mount. This option should be for experienced welders only.
