ATTN: Anyone interested in a tire carrier by RJ

I made a jerky type blueprint. It doesnt have the big wingnut or the crossmeber for it shown, and has two extra crossmembers on the bottom. Anyway. There it is. Mounts up to, lets see, 36 minus 16 equals 20 divided by 2 equals 10, 10 plus 16 equals 26, oh I'd say a 40" tire. Also very handily mounts a hi lift jack, and if I can find mine, one of them neato 4 way lug wrenches we all love. I'll make one Thursday or something. I'm tired.

With a big long bolt a hunk of tube and a tapped hole or a welded on nut, plus a handle and some flat steel.

BTW - The one I'm making looks nothing like that picture I posted anymore.

I think the real question should be, how easy is it to unmount?

I wouldnt want that big POS taking up space all the time. If you make it so that its held on by pins mounted on the bed then I would say you have a kick [censored] product.

Actually drey, I've been thinking about the same thing. A big beefy rear bumper with a tire carrier that swings out so I can open the tailgate. I'll have the can-back on the back so it will look better than just a pickup. It will look like a super blazer on steroids[img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img].
