Re: Factory vehicle with swing out tire carrier

Not sure why you'd want to do this but I know Ford Broncos, vans, amigos, ... all have some type of swing out carrier. But as far as I know they are all mounted to the body somehow, vice a preferred bumper mount. I am sure you could adapt a factory CJ carrier to a YJ/TJ but again it is mounted to the body. I have seen of these on the for sale board. I may even have on in the garage. HTH.

Re: Factory vehicle with swing out tire carrier

On TJ's the tire mount is on the back tailgate which swings to the side and your tailgate folds down, right? I don't know if you could put on the whole tailgate from a TJ, awful expensive just to hold a tire.
