Here’s my rig
2005 GMC Sierra
Older 4-6” lift
35x12.5r18’s on the ground
35x12.5r17 on the custom carrier
Daily driver here in SLC area with lots of
build ideas to come. Hope to get out soon
Curious about your spare tire carrier. How is it mounted? Does it swing away for the tailgate to open?

I built it a few years ago. Wanted to add more to it but time, a move and life for I t the way of it. But it swings away on a ruff stuff byo carrier hinge and has a small lock for 90* open and at closed.
Thanks for the kudos.

Who made the tire carrier? Is it a full bumper or hitch mounted? Great looking truck!!
Built it years ago. Here a couple pics.
Ruff stuff axle for a hinge, swing away from the tailgate, spring lock for closed position and 90* open, destaco lock for the other end, works nicely.

Wanted to add a lot more to it but that’s life I guess.

Thanks for the kudos!

Awesome RIG!!! I have been searching for a swing open spare mount for a while... for mid and small trucks you can find em all day, but not for our full sizers..!!! I checked out that ruff stuff byo carrier hinge, and I think I'm gonna go the same route!!! excellent design, and I REALLY appreciate you sharing it because I was just gonna make my own hinge...
