swing-down tire carrier

I had a local guy fab one up for me. One word...AWESOME! I couldn't be happier. Because my PSC rear bumper is tucked up so close to the body, a traditional swing-away carrier would have been very difficult, if possible at all. So, I decided to go with a swing-down carrier that's hinged on the bumper and anchors to my corner armor.

Now, I just need to paint it this evening when it cools down a bit...and yes, I'll figure out a better solution for the license plate soon.

Looks good. I'm thinking about doing something like that with mine. Maybe later...

I'm really diggin the lines of it. One question, are thoes the aev corners? If so, do you think their strong enough? I thought the aev's were something like 1/8 inch plate. Either way, I really like it. Props

That's awesome! But it looks like it was specifically built for that spare tire. What if you get bigger tires?

Thanks all; and yes, the corner are AEV's "builders" corners. They're 1/8" thick, but I feel they're plenty strong enough. The carrier was made for my 35's, but should I decide to go up to 37's I'll just have a few changes made to it...not much work.

Looks very cool/hardcore. I get into my tailgate way too much for something like that. Gotta love the AZ plates, too. Was just out there a couple weeks ago.

Always follow a great leader. In the absence of a great leader, BE ONE.
