That’s kinda the issue I had. My Suburban is an '89. Couldn’t find any pre-fab frame mount that would work, and I didn’t want to drill holes in the rockers, so custom build. Hard part was working around all the brake and fuel lines to find ways to mount it.
Heading out in the morning for my wife’s Antelope hunt. Will see how this design works before building the driver’s side.
On my Ram, that’s basically all the running boards are mounted too. The thin as hell sheet metal that makes up the rockers. Stupid ass design.
Seen this on a pick I did today. I am not sure what it would have been used for. Anybody know?
My first thought is it is used for drying a small animal hide. Just a guess.
We were thinking possibly along those lines. There were other “skinning and hide making” tools and things like that at this place.
Possibly a smaller kettle or pot hanger for open fires. The semi closed loop on the right side and bottom stringer has me scratching my head thou.
@sbridges2 may be closer than my guess…
You can unhook that bottom bar, as you can see. But what’s weird is that it isn’t like holding the thing closed, if you will. In other words, when you unhook the bottom piece, the main part doesn’t really open up a bunch or anything.

Good guess for not really knowing the scale. But this was pretty large. Probably 18-20" tall overall.
First thing that came to my mind, was to restrain an animal like a cow or something.
There was another one, and it had a fairly large 4’ or so chain attached to it. You might be on to something.
Looks similar to this one. Maybe this one is missing it’s bottom portion, or just a bit different design. Pot hanger.
I believe that is one of the original flux capacitors, not very effective and not often found anymore…
like I said…I have no clue partner…
Well, it does look very similar to that one.
I think Jim is on to something.
Google image search keeps coming up with an “antique caldron hanger” similar to what
@jfudge posted. For hanging pots over an open fire. Many different designs found but none with a bottom piece.
Doo, Doo, Doo looking out my back door…

I may not agree with your pov on some other subjects that you post about but I sure do agree on how/where you live. Absolutely beautiful, Tom!
