Re: Spare Tire Mount On Hood
see i never got that...a lot of the weight of the jeep is on the front end anyways with the engine and custom bumpers and winches.....i think the spare tire would best be left in the back...either in the back seat or on the tire carrier...
however if you REALLLY wanted to, i suppose you could weld in some angle iron to the inside of the hood so it doesnt cave in, then attache the tire mount to that same angle iron. just make sure all the weight is on the angle iron and that the angle iron follows the curve of the hood down to the edges so it doesnt cave in.
