    tuff- the problem isnt the shaft breaking off at the weld from not going through the bumper its from stress and fatigue on the shaft itself especially where its welded. All the ones Ive seen break are through the bumper and break where its welded(the weld weakens the shaft I guess) search pirate for swing out hinge or similar and youll see what I mean. it may not matter as much to you as you trailer it but for us DD guys the idea of the carrier breaking off on the highway isnt cool
    although the spring pin is slick, I wasnt implying that it had anything to do with the shear on the shaft

    see the plate bolted to the top of the shaft? It's a bad pic I know, but that plate is welded to a gusset behind the shaft and bolted to the bumper here's a better pic

    The bumper shown isnt my work, just an example from the net. It's the top plate (see second pic of blue TJ ^) that reduces the sear load on the shaft by directing the load through the gusset

    the pin is merely a slick way of holding the carrier open, and an additional support holding it closed. You might find one from can-cope sales in mississauga, maybe even Princess Auto ask for a spring pin. You can find details about them on mcmaster.com but Mcmaster Carr is in the states and wont ship small orders over the border

I'd like to make mine into a double sheer like the one in the top pic. I noticed that the top of my tail gate isn't lining up with the tub as well as it used to when it's closed and the swing out droops a little when it's opened. My gate is attached to my swing out...

    haha never thought of it that way, very true. Lets see some pics of your bracing.

    Yeah I didnt think the pin had anything to do with the shear and I see the brace now in the new pic. thanks
