tire carrier

i know ive seen tire carriers that mount in the cargo area of a 4 door. either at an angle or flat but cant think of who makes them or if they were custom. i still want space below the tire for storage. what are my options? thanks guys

All of the ones I've seen have been custom jobs. Some have been very well done. Never seen a production model.

not a lot of room under it but if you fold down the seat for a second you can fit your groceries behind it.

I'm currently waiting on one of those cargo area tire carriers from HCP4x4. They had a little hiccup in production so they don't have them on hand, at least as of about 2 weeks ago when I spoke with them.

I made mine.
Took a 2" reciever hitch and sandwiched it with another plate dead middle of the cargo area against the back of the seats. Then I made a L shaped mount out of 2" steel that plugs into it with a angled plate for the rim. The rim is bolted to it and then a ratchet strap keeps it from lateral movement.

Takes up less space and cost me like $50, that and I can pull the entire thing just leaving the reciever in under a min leaving a free cargo area.

If your inerested I can post pics tomorow.

I really like that one posted above, but mine isn't a 4-door. Has anyone done something similar with a 2-door JK? At the moment, I just took my back seat out and the spare is just laying there.

$16 2" receiver from harbor fright, some medium wall 2" tube and some 1/8" plate underneath that sandwiches the floor. The "holder" has 6" "outriggers" on ither side to keep it from wobbling. If I did it again I would:
add 2 more bolts to the plate to wheel
extend out the "outrigger" plate to 1' on each side
weld some nuts or thread the ends to allow a bolt/knob on each outrigger end to be able to "preload" the mount and get rid of wobbles/squeeks

or I would just add a couple footman loops and latches that would do the same.

But right now it works great so no need to "fix" it

Argh, No. While I was at the HCP Open House I talked to Nemesis and it sounds like the design will be passed onto them to produce. The plus side is they make some cool shit, the down side is they have a full schedule and told me that it would not be until end of summer before they got started on the cargo tire carrier. I'll check in with Nemesis in a couple weeks for an update.

Waiting sucks

I know this is old, but are the back seats in this pic aftermarket? They look like they are able to recline. Anyone know about this?

Saw this JK at HCP4x4 a couple weeks back and pretty sure I saw stock seats in the back.

Why not lay it flat? Seems like a more efficient use of space and you will have the benefit of now being able to see out the back *and* have a lower center of gravity by shifting the weight down. I use the seat mounting points to ratchet strap it down, so no fancy contraption required.
