So I ended up getting the comp 4x4 hd hinge, receiver hitch, and their tire mount plate. I got the synergy latch kit from poly performance and I picked up the stop kit from bersrk on jeep forum. This was e first time I have ever used exclusively 1/8" tubing on the swing out. I had planned to use Dom but the logistics of getting it bent killed the deal. I can now open my hardtop glass and the swing out will hold itself open on a hill. I'm really happy with the synergy latch so far and I would say its worth the cash. It took some tinkering to get it to work smoothly but now that its dialed in its great. The carrier is rattle and wiggle free. Here are some pics.
I would say the only thing I would change is putting the spring loaded pull pin for the latch on the left side. I did it on the right to avoid moving my light.
added a new latch to the list from 4x4innovations. I stumbled across it while looking for tube clamps. Looks to be a similar concept to the synergy latch I'm using, but about half the price, although it doesnt come withthe bumper side mount, and I'm not sure exactly what you would make for a bumper side mount.
so the little plastic ball on my Synergy latch dried and cracked and fell off when I was installing my carpet last week. I think the ball threads off, but I can't see how, it looks like its made onto the metal. A whole new assembly looks to be $15.
