Ski Bum Truck V2.0, F450 Rough Road RV

What about mounting it down on the bumper with a pivot to get it clear of the doors. (Think vertical pivot to the outside not a swing away) The pivot system could be like the one they use on the LMTV’s and a good cradle that uses the bumper for the support.

Checkout 2:00 minute to 2:40 on this video.

Possibility. Would need to relocate tail lights, and flip it for access to heater fuel tank. Bumper is wide and sturdy enough though.

Not sure of exact specs. Have seen them used for years on off-road trailers carrying big spares. A lot of bouncing in a trailer; seem to hold up well.
Hmmm OE designed, but designed for more than OE weight? Hinge is single shear....

Do you know? Are your axles the same as mine? I am very interested if they work.
I do believe they are.

And my wheels are still lost..... No one at the shipping CO seems to have a clue! And I cant get a call back from the lady who deals with lost stuff.
