New Spare Tire Carrier

Ha! I wish. I was just doing some surfing and cut and pasted this one onto mine. Not to bad looking.

I'm going to figure something out. I found the hinge, the T-Handle to secure it and all that. Just need to get my brother to use his talents or find somebody I trust. Don't laugh at the bad photo shop but this is my actual idea. Its using a few peoples plans and combines them. I like that Australian version for the under bumper support but their actual visible carrier is squarish and ugly. My idea uses their under bumper support idea and a typical carrier up top. I like the idea of mounting it on the top of the bumper to keep it close to the rear of the jeep. My personal opinion I don't like it when they are hanging way out there.



With the under side of the bumper like this




And copying this idea up top.



Of course accessories could be added after I got an idea of what type of space I would have.

If you decide to do this maybe you could take some measurements and photos along the way. Mainly the mounting points. It would allow us to maybe duplicate ourselves for those that are capable or have a shop duplicate for others.

Down2far - Well If I do make it or If I can get my brother to make it then I'll get some picture, measurements and all that. I am trying to convince him to make them so I can offer them on the forum.

Texel - You know that guy? That thing looks HUGE!

Make sure that it is far enough back for the window to clear the spare tire. The tire carrier that Ross has made in the past also have supports that tie into the frame under the carrier. If Ross is not making any more of them he might share his plans with you as a starting point.

I'm with you on that. That is why I haven't really cared for any of the ones that have been made so far. I don't care if it is close to the rear window because I hardly ever use it.

I agree with this style as well, the guy who will be making mine is going to remove the rear bumber and then build the tire rack into the replacement bumper to keep it up close. He will include the back up camera and back-up sensors into the new bumper. I just need a little more money saved up to pay for the job.
