There's a reason why so many bumper builders use Summit Machine's spindles for their swing outs. They don't snap in half on the highway like a trailer spindle has a reputation for. 😎💪

Have you seen Comp4x4's setup? They give you a sleeve for the spindle, so you sleeve your bumper and then press and weld the spindle into the bottom of the sleeve so you don't screw up the heat treat at the top of the spindle where the flex force is. Pretty slick.

I used a Comp4x4 spindle in my first TJ, it worked great for a couple years with a 33 on it. I thought they were out of business. They used to be down in Spanish Fork.
I would have done a Comp or Summit spindle but needed this one to be double sheer.

Also check out 4xinovations latch mech, they are super cool.

Started helping my pops replace his mangled body mounts on his TJ with a swag Offroad kit. Hat channel rusted out and we had to build a patch. Fun. These sure welded up nice though. It’s going to be a multi weekend process if they are all this nasty. The joys of a 23 year old vehicle that has been wheeled hard.

Time for powder?
Funny you ask... the main cage is going to Armor for p-coat after I’m done with it today. However, this rear section is now at a buddy’s paint shop. He and others have found it amusing that my initials are represented in the tubework (not intentional), so he offered free work if I’d let him apply the multiple colors he felt were needed. 🤘
