    I know alot of you have made custom tire mounts for your blazers. I am getting ready to do this myself so could everybody post some pictures of them to give me ideas. I have seen someones that folded down towards the ground but haven't been able to find the pictures again. If your out there I would like to see that one again! The way my bumper is made that would be an easy way without alot of mods to the bumper!

    Well here's mine. I don't know how well you can see it in this pic but it is a swing-away carrier. It pivots on the outside corner of the bumper.

    ya, my buddy had one of those that rotated down. It was hilarious watching him dead lift that 35" tire up to the tailgate. Not my idea of fun!

    It's heavy enough with it just swingin' away......I've been toyn' with the idea of adding bearings to make it rotate easier....
