    I just recently picked up an 85 K5, so ofcourse it time to do some mods. I need a spare tire carrier to haul and extra 35" wheel around. Does anyone know where I can get a good bumper combo that doesnt cost $800???? Thanks

    Has anybody ever made/tried one that plugs into a receiver? I'm thinking about making one till I have enough $ for a 4x4 Iron bumper/tire carrier.

    I was going to have my brother make me one that plugs into a reciever but it would be in the way more than anything, Im not sure how you could get it out of the way when you wanted to put the tailgate down

    I've seen receiver mount bike racks that have a pivot right near the hitch, you just pull a pin or something and lay it flat. Might have to make it hang down with a bit more of an angle with a really wide tire, but shouldn't be too difficult.

    I think a side swinging mount is the way to go, no bending down or heavy lifting so anyone that has to deal with it shouldn't have a problem.
