New swinging tire-gate

First thing Monday morning I am dropping my truck off with my buds at Tennessee Off-Road in Lebanon, TN and they are going to build a swinging tire-gate for my 2002 Ford Ranger XLT that will hold my spare 33x12.50r15 tire. So check in Monday night or Tuesday morning for my pics and will show newer pics of my trucks all the ones I have on here are old. This week I have installed a snorkel. tire-gate, diff.guard, hi-lift jack and new wheel hubs.

thank you for your comments and yes the hoop is welded the snorkel is made from black abs 3inch and 2inch pipe, with the three inch 90% that you can is in the picture, the cap is in the plumbing section at lows and the 3inch pipe connects with the 2inch just before it goes into the fender and under the hood it accually hookes into my old [email protected] system i will send picture tomorrow when i get it back from Tenn. off road, the black rubber piece you see in the pictures is a 1.99 floor map cut up and by the way the corner lights are painted black and the lights are removed the blinkers are in the headlight i think it looks pretty good with the gold paint, nothing i have seen before

Your truck looks great. Is that bumper something you made or did you buy it?
