Spare Tire on TireGate

So I could not wait for 4.7 to design a rear bumper/tire carrier because of upcoming road trips and the need for a spare tire. So I broke down and picked up a TireGate that goes in the 2" hitch.

I got it direct from TireGate as a distrubutor thru my business. And I am going to do an evaluation and write up and try to negotiate a discount for those interested XK owners. Retail on this is $690 plus shipping. Comes in two large boxes via freight.

Looks good !!! Are you going to place the plate? I would like it better if the tire were in the midle and not to the side, but it looks good...

Yes. I have the plate kit to relocate the plate. Just have not put on yet. Yeah, I kind of thought the same thing about the tire placement.

Maybe you can have someone cut it and weld it in the center some black paint, nad you would be set...
