A pic of the bumper bed lined and on the bronco. Still need to make a high lift jack mount and mount a LED light bar on the swing arm.

Too clean. It needs some mud residue, some tree bark, and a few rock scars.

I like everything but the bolt on the left. Would seem like you could put something that would be solid, but not require tools to open. Does the lock hub work? (Lock open) If it's open, is it strong enough to hold while you drive a short trip from Lowes. (Hauling plywood)

Thanks, I thing it's pretty strong. It's a spindle and hub from a dana 44 with the axle welded in it and the lock out works. The funny thing is the wife said the same thing about the bolt, I still need to fine some 1/4" round rod to make a wing on the bolt. The only thing I purchased was the LED's the 1/4" plate was given to me and rest of the junk came out of my scrap pile.

That's how I like to build. I have plate piled up out side my doors just for this type of thing.

Thanks, A locking hub is the best thing for a swing arm. When the bronco is not setting level you can open the swing arm then lock it it will say in place.. I did add some rod on the retaining bolt.

Looks good. I assume you carry shackles. Do you really think people will steel them? I know Steve made his lock, but I can't believe that is a high sought after item for a theif. Shackles involve work. Theives don't like work. I just like trucks with shackles/D rings hanging off. Gives them a serious look. I plan to have them on both ends of my project.

It doesn't have to be sought-after to disappear. My truck is a DD, so it's as likely to be in a WM or mall parking lot for a while as in front of my house, or on the trail. Anyone wandering by might unscrew the pin & walk away with a shackle or 2. Or just the vibration from driving could work the pin out. That happened to one of my roller fairlead pins (in rush-hour traffic on the interstate in traffic) when the snap ring failed, so those are protected by the new bumper, too. If the shackles aren't retained SOMEHOW, he's probably going to lose them, and throwing them inside his truck is probably the easiest way.

If you use receivers & square tube to mount them, you can easily add tabs similar to my chain links to prevent the pins from spinning, and those tabs can be on 2 sides so the shackle can swing down or sideways depending how the tube is inserted.

If you happen to set on it Steve' I bet it would. The shackles are in the back in a tool box. This is the wife's bronco she likes the look with them off the bumper. The shackles stay on my bumper on my bronco and I have never lost one or had one stolen. I just keep them tight so you need tools to remove them. Steve I like the way you mounted your shackles horizontal .I have never thought of mounting them that way, your bumper looks good.

Thanks. They ride that way normally so they store without rattling or swinging, and so the rounded parts act like push-bumpers. But I can quickly reinsert them so they hang, or swap them for other inserts.

Hi-lift is mounted still need to bed line the mount and weld the top bolt to the center tube.
