    Anyone have a stock "glide out" spare tire carrier?? I believe it was an option for the 75-87 trucks and blazers. Im looking for photos of it if they're available. Or, has anyone modified the old carriers to a newer style crank down type? Photos??

    Are you talking about an under bed glide out carrier? If so they were never installed on a Blazer from the factory due to the fuel tank.... If your talking about the outside swing tailgate carrier, then they weren't offered on Pickup beds....

    Ya, I didnt clarify that. I was referring to under bed carriers for trucks. I saw parts available for the glide out, in a LMC catalog, but the pics werent very detailed.
