Great write up on that tire carrier. I'm torn between the swing-out style and the HK Offroad Kratos. I guess since I have no money I have plenty of time to think about it, eh?

Nice Jeep! I have a 2002 Overland that is the same color. I just installed the Fat Bob's lift that is supposed to be 2.5" front and 2" rear. The rear of my Jeep sits about 2" higher than the front, which is exactly what I didn't want. I notice that yours sits very level. Did you do anything to your Jeep to get it level like that?

Very cool. I especially like how easy you suggest welding is as it's a skill I don't currently have but one I'm hoping to learn. It's seeming to become harder and harder for us WJ owners to find more than 2 or 3 options for bumpers these days :smirk:

Nice setup. Thanks for sharing. Food for thought. How have the welds of your spindle hinge support held up over the last couple of years?

Bringing an old thread up to hopefully get pictures of your swing out tire carrier. The pics in this thread unfortunately have the photo bucket signature going across all of them and difficult to get a idea of how you built it. From the write up and how you kept the stock bumper cover on I’m excited to hopefully duplicate your creation
