    Nice looking tire carrier. I would have never thought of using a van door latch.

    Good job. Nice welds too. How is it working for you on the trail? Also like how you displayed the pics, that is a good format.

    Re: rear tire carrier(pic.\'s)

    I havn't taken the truck off road since the install.I screwed up on the messurements as it sits over to the left too much.The edge of the tire actually covers a portion of the tail light.I may have to cut it and extend it to the right about 1.5".
    I have poorly balanced tires and at 60mph it sets up a harmonic and the carrier starts to bounce a little.Slow down to 55 or go up to 65 and the bounce dissapears.I'll be getting the tires balanced soon,hopefully that will cure the bounce issue.Thanks for the comments so far.
    I just got DSL...IT ROCKS!!!
