Points made and taken. Don't want to hurt nobody. The pics are pulled, don't want to give anybody bad ideas. The garbage will come off and I'll either throw it away or put it back together with some help from accomplished fabbers.

The pull down Spare tire carrier is possible. I had done it with a CBI Off road tire carrier. The carrier cost about $250 here is the link http://www.cbioffroadfab.com/index.php Go to images, then armor then Tire carrier. It does mount to your Hitch.


Then I modified it by welding it on top of my hitch, so I can still use the Hitch:



Here are more pics of the Tire Carrier and my buddy welding it for me.

I have taken this set up through many trail rides and had no issues with it.

You are correct sir. One-off custom that he fabbed up himself in his garage.

He's a mechanic for a racing team, so he's got the skill to do it.

Guy's name is Thierry, he lives just North of Montreal. I'll see if I can dig up his email for you if you want, although I'm not sure he'd be that interested in making them as a side business. Who knows though...

cool Sorry, I can't understand why you consider that a "nice mod"--

--How do you suppose he protects and provides support, for the hatch, when opened ??

--Surely, the little hydraulic shocks wouldn't hold up the hatch !!

--Curiousity !!!

-- frown frown --JIMBO

Because it is a nice mod.

Sounds like he figured out what you thought he didn't.

Curiosity solved.

Looks cool, but dysfunctional.

I'd take a bumper-mounted tire carrier over that one.

I don't want a heavy-ass tire attached to my hatch. I would rather swing it away to get in there for tools or a drink.
