    I would like to put a spare tire carrier on the rear bumper, instead of in the blazer. Is there anyone who make a kit to do this? Would a bronco setup work from the junk yard?

    4x4 Iron makes a very nice rear bumper /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif The ones that bolt to the body are only good up to a 33" or so before it will start tearing up the body

    Do a google search for 'kennesaw mountain bumper'. They have a great looking replacement bumper/spare tire mount that I'm drooling over. They run about $500, but look to be worth it.

    You may want to check out your local welding shop.I wanted to do the same thing ,but instead I had one made that goes in a draw tite reciever hitch.It ran me about $195,but I can easily remove it when i don't want it.I also run 39.5"s & it supports one just fine.one thing that I did not do & wished that i had tried is using a ROUND pipe the same diameter as the square hole in the reciever hitch.this way you could remove the locking pin & rotate the tire down easily. ???? maybe this helps ???
