78 Bronco Heavy-duty bumper and spare tire carrier  

This is the first version of the rear bumper and tire carrier I built for the Bronco. It has sense been modified a few times, most notable is the old wheel mount was removed, and a spindle, hub, lock out installed on a new mount. This allows me to both carry the spare tire, and stores the spare spindle, hub, lock out in a convent place, with out redundant weight of the old mount. I'm in the process of building a new bumper and carrier, when done I'll get a new write up done with pics.

78 Bronco under hood Hi Lift Mount

Storage space is limited, even in a Big Bronco.  I found the space under the hood to be a good place to store the Hi Lift jack for every day use,,, It is a little inconvenient on the trail when it's needed, and for that reason I'm going to build a new mount for trail use only, possible on the new bumper I'm working on.. I'll continue to store the Hi lift under the hood daily, as it's out of the way, yet always available.
