Reunel Bumper Swing Arm

I have a reunel rear bumper with a spare tire swing arm. I'm located in Denver and want to get a second swing arm installed on the right side to hold a storage box and potentially a bike rack on top of the box. Anybody have any suggestions or know where I could have this done in the Denver area.

Maybe give Colorado Camper Van a call in Loveland. Derek might be able to help you out.

Or Denver Fleet or Boulder Offroad, pretty much anyone who plays with Offroad vehicles and does at least moderate fabrication can handle that. I'm sure in Denver there are a million Jeep/Offroad modding places.

I had a Reunel on my last van and once called them to price swingarms, thinking I might have it done on a trip to Oregon sometime (I'm in Tennessee so shipping is out on something that big and heavy). They quoted me like $1k or something insane like that. Surely you can do better locally, especially since you have one already on one side for someone to copy.

Reunel is out of business. I have been looking for the passenger side swing arm for 2 years now.

I have a Reunel rear bumper and mounted an Aluminess spare tire carrier on the driver's side of my E350. Aluminess will sell you a passenger side swingarm and box that works great. Give them a call

Do you know if that happened recently? It couldn't have been more than a year since I called them.

Anyway, slight hijack. Sorry.

Reunel in CA went out of business sometime in the recession, but their assets and name and phone number seem to have been bought by Buckstop in OR.

Given the limited reunel swing arm options, has anybody had experience with installing an aluminess swing arm on a reunel bumper. Seems like this might be the way to go.

Also, I'm looking to get a storage box on the passenger side that also has the bike rack on top.

Any suggestions?
