Tire Carrier
« on: Mar 13, 2016, 06:32:37 PM »
So my buddy has a tubing bender and we had a vision of a tire carrier I wanted to build so we went for it. Here it is.

Great departure angle

I am going to mount my hi-lift and maybe a couple of roto-pax on there as well.

Holy hell that's one of the best overall designs I've seen.  :thumbs:  It does sit up a little high blocking the back window but looks like it's great with your deparch angle  . Really dig it

 :yupyup:, ya it blocks the back window pretty good. I usually don't run any doors when I wheel. I just ordered a pair of 4x innovations tube doors. Didn't really feel like making those lol. I just didn't want it to be a grabber on big drop offs, I have seen people destroy :pokinit: that hangs to low.

Also looks like you were able to get the perfect tilt on it to follow the slope of the rear window :thumbs: very impressive

Yeah it was kind of tricky. Now I need to tie in the bumper to the sliders. May be doing a rear exo.....just debating. I bought enough tubing to do it, so may be in the works this week when I get some days off   :driving:

I know I'm bringing up an old thread but what did you use for the pivot point?

I had a hinge kit from comp 4x4, but I had to make custom brackets and just used the center section. The kit was in my cabinet for years and finally decided what I wanted to do. It had roller taper bearings and is greasable. I cut the brackets out of 3/8" plate. The latch is also comp 4x4.
