Slim line bumper Aluminess swing arms??

Hey guys I have a 2002 E250 Traverse and want to add Aluminess swing arms for tire carrier and box but have a very narrow bumper. Does anyone know if they can be mounted on this?
Any info would be awesome thanks!

Yes. They are completely independent of the bumper.. you could have no bumper and they'd work fine.

I've got a pic of one on that bumper somewhere. I'll see if I can find it, but Rob is spot on. It will work fine.

Couple items to note about the stock bumper style swing arms:

Spare Tire: You will have to remove your spare tire BEFORE you install the swing arm OR you will have to modify the swing arm mounting bracket (drill a large hole) so you have access to the tire lift/drop crank hole. It is a nice and capable unit but certainly not as stout as the arms integrated into the full bumper. Make sure to spec the correct bolt pattern when ordering (8 x 6.5 or 8 x 170mm) for the tire mounting plate.

Box Swing Arm: Also a capable unit but will not handle the heavier loads of the integrated bumper swing arms. This is becasue the stand aloane swing arms do not have the extra tube that wraps around back down to the sides of the bumper.

Nice adds though!

Thanks guys! Anyone know of buying Aluminess stuff raw (unpowder coated)? My bumpers and lower 12" of van are rhino lined wanted to do the same with tire carrier and box.

Call them. I'm pretty sure they make the swingarms in batches though so if they have any they're probably already powder coated. Can you spray over the color?
