Re: bumper/tire carrier Q\'s


A friend just did this same thing with a spare rack I had lying around. He did as you described, and tied the top into his tailgate latches. This way he can hinge the spare down and open the tailgate. He hinges it up and secures it with the chain hooks. He can also lock it in the horizontal position using the chains and have the tailgate open for hauling larger items, just not over bumpy terrain. he also incorporated a hi-lift mount into it and a backup light.
