  • Fixed style tire carrier?

    Does anyone make a rear bumper with a fixed tire carrier? All I can seem to find are swing-out types. Maybe I just spent too much time in the sun.....

    Carrier

    They mostly do that because people want to be able to open their tailgates.

      I understand that...but my 5 has no tailgate and I really would like to eliminate as much tire carrier "rattle" as I can.

        what about us guys that don't have a tailgate? i have a glass body and no tailgate. my tire carrier swings out (with a little persuasion). i would rather have one that drops down, could maybe be used as a table or a small work surface if needed. the only time my tire carrier gets swung out is to wash the jeep. if someone finds a carrier that drops or is fixed, please post it here.

          Poison Spyder Customs makes a swing down one, but they are expensive:

          Rear Stinger Carrier, I can't link directly to it but it is under the Components Section.

              If you have access to someone who can weld, it should be really simple to build a fixed carrier.

              Then add a simple tray with hooks or tabs that attatch with wing nuts and you've got a table. Maybe a jerry can carrier that bolts on and folds out?

              The fold-down is cool, but I can just imagine having to lift that freaking tire and wheel twice...once on to the rack and again upright.

                No kidding! I'd be running the winch line over the cage to lift it!

                  I just built a fixed tire carrier/bumper for Dad's 3B yesterday. I should've taken pics. Maybe I will tomorrow.

                    I'd go with a homemade one...

                    That poison spyder carrier looks damn nice, it's just a tad pricey... not to think about what it takes to lift the tire back up...

                      Good thought and good point. I made a swing down style carrier for my TJ. Let me tell you, it takes a good bit of grunt and some straining to put it in the "up" postition with a 36" SX on a beadlock. I can't imagine what it would be like with a larger tire.
