    Maybe you can add some support bars similar to the Yamaha rear brush guard. I took this picture from Crimedog44's post. You can see they have attached it to rear frame on both sides of the hitch.
    Maybe you could modify it though so that the support bar is pinned at the frame and bumper, you pull the pins at the bumper, the bars still being pinned to the frame would fall down towards the ground and you would be able to still use the dump feature. Then when the bed is back up in the upright position, you could just pin those bars back at the bumper. Few extra steps, but how often do you use the dump feature?

    Hopefully this makes sense, I can envision it in my head.

    I like it Godit!
    I saw where it was flexing on my mounting brackets. With a gusset added to my brackets and your Idea of a "Pinned" support, I think the Bumper/Tire carrier will be on the trail in no time! But I do have to work this weekend tho.

    Looks too good to abandon the idea. Maybe a modified off set hitch extension?

    I read your reply again and I like the idea of a hitch support. I am not going to abandon this project. But sometimes you have to take a step back or a break and regroup!

    Thanks again Jimbo and Godti!!

    I was able to spend some time on the build this past Sunday (about 1 1/2 hrs). I made 2 gussets and 2 spacers and welded them on to the mounting brackets that were flexing. Yeah, buddy! No more flex!!
    I planned on making a support like Jimbo suggested, but I don't think I will need it.
    Now all that is left is to cap the exposed ends (2) make a mounting plate for the wheel, make a pin latch for when it is swung open and paint it. I might even spray some bed liner on it. Pics to follow!

    Well, I am getting closer ! All that is left to do is Paint and I might change the spring latch. It is kind of hard to lift up. I think the spring is too stiff. But that will be a simple fix! Here she is boys!

    Here are some pics of my new windshield. A flip-out from SXS Stuff! I like it but there is a gap at the top that needs to be addressed! And I am on it!

    I bought some automotive weather stripping off of Amazon to help seal that gap and keep the flipup useable:

    Well, I bought some pillar mount LED brackets. What a joke they are!!! I had to remove about a 1/4" wide X 1/2" long strip just to get them to fit. And they point the light down with the angle of the hood!
    I will be addressing these soon! I am going to have to make a shim to get the lights pointed straight. Stay Tuned!!
