I have been looking at the OR-Fab tire carrier alot lately and it will probably end up being my primary choice, but I do have a few questions.
1) Does the carrier lock in the open position? If not has anyone come up with a creative way to do this? I plan on eventually converting my tailgate to a drop-down version and do not want to get crushed/pinched by a swinging tailgate.
2) Has anyone modded the carrier to use a standard 3 lug mount instead of the T-handle? I know the T handle is easier to get the tire mounted, but I personally don't really care for how it looks, especially when you have aftermarket wheels. Would love to see pictures if anyone has done this.
