OR-Fab

Anyone running a 37 or bigger on the orfab gerry-can swing away carrier? 4wd.com lists it as carrying a max of a 35.

Thanks all

Owners manual rates at 200lb load. My 35" clears the stock bumper easily.

But know this, it's kinda a pain in the ass to install. Have a friend handy to help with building the hinges. Did mine by myself on sat. Took about 5hrs solid.


Sent from my mind using telekynesis!

I think this thing is finally coming together. Still Needed: drive shafts, frame mount rails...then done son! For a while...

I spoke with the owner prior to ordering mine because I wanted to be sure I could run a 37 on it. He has had a 37 on his for almost three years and still works great. I saw it in person yesterday and it does actually still work fine with no issues seen. Hope this helps.

Had mine on there for years with a 35 and then/now a 37. I also have Huthinson Beadlocks which weigh a TON!!!!

They are good for the extra weight just make sure you snug the tire down so it cant bouce. The tire should actually compress against the bars. Can send a pic of what I am talking about if it does not make sense.

FWIW I had to modify my carrier by welding the mounting plate onto my corner armor. I actually broke off two of the bolts that are mounting the tire carrier to the hinges. IDK if it was a result of the the weight of the tire or just the way it was installed. Either way I took out the whole mounting system all together and now my tire carrier is rock solid!

Can you show pics of your setup? I have the AEV corners and was wondering how that might work with the carrier. I'm guessing some creative torchwork was involved?

It was really easy. You just weld the bracket that holds the carrier to your armor. Not really complicated. I will take a pic and put it up here.

As you can see very easy mod. Run a bead down the side (sorry for the dusty photos, I just got done running down a dirt road the other day). Then install the bolts back into the hinges without having to put the nuts on the back of them (which to me was the biggest PITA ever!).

OR-Fab bumpers are rated for up to 40" tires. I have 37's on there--no problem!
