    Looks great, where do you get it and what does it cost?
    Does it mount to the frame or just the bumper?

    Beast-
    I got it from S.E.C. Click on the link at the top of the page and you will see. Send Fredd a email and he will send you a price sheet along with all the options. He does some great work.
    Steve, I agree, you pay for what you get.

    Nice.

    Is it very much trouble to install?

    I'm emailing Fredd.

    Jeff 86K5-
    I was a fairly simple installation. Remove the bumper, take off the mounting brackets for the bumper, install new brackets, reinstall the bumper and the install the tire carrier. That was the mainly all there was too it. Wasn't hard at all.

    It looks great....I have a couple of questions.
    1. How much can you see through your rearview mirror?
    2. How much does the whole set-up weigh with tire? estimate is fine...Thank's Blink...

    Your hi-lift jack mount is in a different position than the one on SEC. Was that an option or was it your idea? Did it cost any more to mount it that way?

    UseYourBlinker-
    1. I can see directly behind me as i am driving. As for being able to see behind and to the left, the tire is in the way of course.
    2. I really have no clue as to how much the whole setup weighs inccluding the tire. But i can tell you that the pass. side sits 1/4" lower than the driver's side in the rear now. Not sure how i am gonna fix that. It really isn't noticable though.

    rubiconchevy-
    The hi-lift jack mounting was my idea. It did not cost anymore to have it mounted the way i wanted it. I believe he will also build the tire carrier to mount on any side of the blazer you want.

    Hey, Joe. Nice truck. I have the same exact wheels but have 33" BFG's on them. Tire carrier looks sweet. Might have to get Santa to bring me one.

    K5Junkie thanks for the info....I have a 33 inch spare tire placed in the stock spare tire holder and wanted to find a different places for it. I wasn't sure if I wanted to put it on the back of my Blazer or just buy a rack and put it up there....Thanks Blink

    Sweet looking ride! Oh, and the tire carrier looks good too. Does it bounce around at all? And how does the other end(not the hinge side) fasten to the truck? TIA

    Hey K5J
    When you swing that carrier out does it sag down? When you return or close the carrier do you have to lift up on it to latch it in place? Or does it maintain it's position when opening and closing??
    I ask cuz my current carrier from Kayline sags about two inches when opened. So when I close it I have to lift the latching end up to latch it. My wife cannot open the rear because of this(too short and not quite strong enough).
    Thanks

    1HIHUM-
    Thanks! Believe it or not, the tire carrier makes not noise at all. Even when i have the back window down. The only noise i here is when the Hi-Lift jack is nounted on there and the base of the jack rattles a little. As for how it mounts when it is closed, Fredd makes a new filler piece that goes between the bumper and body that it attaches to. Here is a pic...[​IMG]

    Burt4x4-
    I was concerned with the exact same thing. My wife has no problem opening and closing the tire carrier. It may sag a little when it is open all the way but i do not have to lift up on it to open or close it. I doubt it will start to sag over time either, b/c the hinge part has (i think wheel) bearings in it. And if it does i can just replace the bearings.[​IMG]
