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.
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.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.
Here's where I sourced the panel. https://www.ebay.com/itm/97-01-Jeep-Cherokee-XJ-Switch-Panel-Fits-6-OEM-Switches/224083715488What this a panel you found in the web or did you draw it up?
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.Time for powder?
