looks tops mate. with the tire carrier is it going to sit in the same position? that would be good. good to be sitting nice and low. i made mine high so i can get a hi lift underneath but if it wasnt for that, lo would be the way to go.

The spare will hopefully sit low, I want to get the bumper finished and fitted on the jeep first as I have had it off for over a weak. Then I will start making the swing away.

Rear bumper finally done still need to fit the number plate light, I'll do the swing out tyre/jerry can holder next then rub it all back and finish painting it. I'm also going to do some new quick release mud flaps.

looks awesome mate. wish i made mine a little bit shorter like yours so it didn't hang out as far from the body.

will you be able to get the tyre sitting that low with your tyre carrier, with that tyre cutout in your bar it would be good to.

i thought about it with mine, but because my stub axle is on the outside skin, i would have to make the swing arm bend in towards the body in the centre and that was just going to be more hassle than it was worth considering it's already done. would be nice to have the tyre sitting about 100mm lower to see more, but then i would have struggled to get the jerry can holders high enough to not obstruct the tail lights.

Tyre won't be as low as it is now but I'm only planning to run the swing out arm when doing big trips, also these tyres are 265/70/16 and the KM2's are 285/75/16 so it needs to suit both atm. I'm not sure how it will sit until I build it, but wont it lower than yours, also part of the reason I want the jerry cans behind the tyre.

yeah i designed mine for 37" tyres. even though mine are 35.
like you, i always have in mind running 2 sets of things but it just gets annoying before a trip. especially if theres a late call up by a mate for a night drive or something, the more you have the do the more you decide it's not worth it.

swapping tyres is bad enough

I can still fit the spare KM on the rear door, it's only big trips like the cape next year I will put the swing away on.
