Hi folks:

I need a good rear bumper/swing-out tire carrier for my K5. There are several online, but they are expensive (over $1k) and the shipping is way expensive (like $300!).

So: do you all know anyone who is willing/able to fab up a great one for similar or less money?

I really want it to be heavy and "bomb-proof" with as little sway/rattling as possible. I saw a home-fabbed one once that swayed a lot and rattled like hell - don't want that! My tires are 33s, I might go to 35s eventually. Thanks for all input!

He's in Lincoln. I plan to go back when I'm ready with my other welding projects. He does great work at a reasonable price.
