WTB: Reunel Passenger Rear Swing Out

I have decided to keep my Reunel rear bumper, but I want the passenger swing out so I can mount a box. I was hoping to find one so I would not have to build one and so it matched perfectly. Anyone have one?

Re: WTB: Reunel Passenger Rear Swing Out

TexGX -

I don't have one, but I'm looking for a driver side swing-out for my Reunel rear bumper. I'll watch this and see if you get replies, if that's ok? I don't mean to hijack your thread.

I haven't been able to find ANY Reunel add-ons...

Thanks and Good luck

Phil

No problem. I have tried this once before with no luck, but thought one more try before building my own.

Re: WTB: Reunel Passenger Rear Swing Out

I talked to Reunel recently about adding swing outs to my Reunel rear. I would have to do it while out there on a trip because shipping across the country twice would make no sense, but it was still prohibitively expensive. I think they wanted about $1K per side or something crazy like that? I don't know if you will find one separated from the bumper. I think they are either built with them or without. Good luck! I found a used Aluminess swing out for a factory bumper that mounts between OEM bumper and van, with a spacer on the other side. I had to trim the bumper in places to get it to fit to my liking and my current plan is to add the Aluminess passenger side one to put my box on at a later time. It's only $600.

Wow. It looks like I will just build my own.

If I had the skills that's what I would do. You should probably call Reunel and get a price at least. I'm thinking that's about what they said, but I could be off. Either way, I remember that for me the Aluminess add-ons were much cheaper. There are some pretty good threads for ideas on home built ones on Expo if you want to gather some more ideas.

Re: WTB: Reunel Passenger Rear Swing Out

Hey TexGX-

Just a little follow-up - I contacted Aluminess and ended up buying one of their powder-coated tire racks (for a factory Ford bumper) for $675 plus shipping. Here's the link:

http://www.aluminess.com/ford/ford-v...07-tire-racks/

It bolted up very well (not perfect) to my Reunel bumper (like yours and Scotty, I presume). The tire rack had only 2 holes to mount the bumper (instead of 3 on the frame bumper mount and the Reunel bumper) - not a big deal, since there were only 2 bolts holding the factory bumper on anyway. The tire rack and passenger side spacer (included) are 3/8" thick, pushing the Reunel bumper out that far (necessitating purchase of longer, Grade 8 bolts, of course), and only one of the holes on the bottom of the frame channel lined up. I ended up drilling out one of the the frame holes a bit to make it work and get the full towing capacity back (the factory hitch attached to frame with 4 bolts). Hope these photos show better what I'm trying to explain:





I've taken photos of my actual installation, but still need to post

Hope this makes some sense and helps your situation.

Phil


Side note: I was going to Southern Cal anyway and asked about picking up the bumper at Aluminess, in order to save shipping to Utah. It ended up being less expensive to ship than to pay California sales tax, which would've been required for a pickup! I ended up taking it with on that trip and installed it while there.
