Awesome fabricated tire carrier

Hope everyone is having a good day!

I just wanted to throw out an awesome idea I found a while back! It's a tire carier that is mounted inside the cargo area on a JKU. It uses the roll cage as a mounting point and looks awesome!
The only thing that had me on the fence was it having a slightly higher center of gravity (2-3in). But I feel like it won't be anything too noticeable.
I'll have my subwoofer mounted directly underneath it.

I am having a local shop fabricate it for me the first weekend I get home so I'll be sure to let you all know how it goes!
Please chime in if you can think of any cool additions, or have any concerns that could prevent injury or damage to my jeep!!

That tire carrier belongs to a member on here MATTI

there was a debate whether he built it himself or he had a shop fabricate it for him, he does have a bunch of pics of it in here, but it surely isn't any new technology.

post up some pics when its done and let me know what the shop charged you for it.

I mount my spare in the back with straps, but am interested in going this route

Thumbs up

must be something in the JKOwners waters because ( literally ) last evening - as I scoped out my TnT plate delete |ORO plate light/3rd brake |OEM license plate relocation +hole plug solution install - I looked at the spare 37 ratchet strapped into the back w/ the seats folded down and said to myself," there has GOT to be a means of affixing the spare internally , not laying down , mounted and still allowing for the backseats to be available for occupants ..."

I searched and found the ORF pre-runner , some others and finally came to conclusion that I'd have to concoct something up and have it made or make it .

This is cool as crap but I would want the same premise but by some means have it made of aluminum box or tube for weight saving purposes ( which translates to GenRight calibre pricing or more , if it'd even work) ; definitely interested in your results and post pix ....

The shop told me they would do it for me for $250 with whatever options I want! I am having quite a bit of stuff done as well.
I really think this would be a hot seller if big companies would make it! I contacted at least 5 different big companies, and they all told me they didn't have the time to design something like this.
I'm sure I can make a deal with my shop that's doing this and get a decent amount produced.

I would think Soemone like VKS could get something like this done in a small run and have no problem selling a bunch !

I will post a link to Matti's thread so you can look at what he has going on there.

If your willing to sacrifice your rear cubby, pull the cover off, let the spare sit down in ther lean against the back seat. sits low enough where you can see right over the seats and the eear seats are usbale with no issue.

We've had a couple guys inquire about us building them. Never came to fruition though. It's a simple part to build, no one has coughed up the cash yet.

I was thinking about doing a small run of these. I have one in the rear of our JK. Only down side is with a 40" you cannot use the rear seats. Which isn't a big deal to me, that's where my dog rides. Its hinged/pinned using 3/4" heims to pivot it up and remove the spare.

Yeah I checked out his thread, I love the idea! I think I am going to have them mount it as low as possible so I can still see out of my rearview. I just want to be able to still squeeze my subwoofer underneath it. I'm going to see if I should order the clamps for it, or if the shop will have another alternative. Do you guys think just one clamp will hold? I honestly think one will be fine.

I would rather have mine laying flat so I can see behind me. Might as well get rid of the rearview mirror considering all you'll see is rubber.

Thats cool that it lays perfectly flat so you cant even see it. would be a waste of those flush mount leds to have it hanging on the back !

Just used the existing mounting hardware that came with the carrier.

Camera sits back far enough that there wouldn't be any contact
